Letters on Yoga

This reading consists of excerpts from Sri Aurobindo’s Letters on Yoga Volume I : Section Four Reason, Science and Yoga, pages 157 – 162.

Sri Aurobindo explains that intellect will not bring one to the Supreme and all that is beyond the mind.

It isn’t by thinking but by an entire change of consciousness that one can pass from ignorance into knowledge . . .

On the integral way to the truth he says: “…..I have said that the idea of the supermind was already in existence from ancient times. there was in India and elsewhere the attempt to reach it by rising to it; but what was missed was the way to make it integral for the life and to bring it down for transformation of the whole nature, even of the physical nature..”

Talk on Post-humanism

At Sunday’s  talk at Sri Aurobindo Centre for Studies, Bharat Nivas we had an honor to listen to
professor Makarand Paranjape, starting with reading of Savitri as opening remarks on the topic of ‘Sri Aurobindo and the Challenge of Post-humanism’. After his discourse into the topic a lively debate has emerge, dwelling in various directions. yet all revolving around hu-man, evolution, consciousness and super being…. humanism, and post-humanism.

Apart from books in criticism, Makarand has published six poetry collections and works of fiction (two novels and a collection of short stories). Among his latest creative writing publications are: Transit Passenger/Passageiro em Transito (Humanitas, 2016), and the novel, Body Offering (New Delhi: Rupa, 2013). His edited books include Swami Vivekananada: A Contemporary Reader (Routledge, 2015), and Healing across Boundaries: Biomedicine and Alternative Therapeutics (Routledge, 2015).

Synthesis of Yoga

Part II The Yoga of Knowledge, Chapter II The Status of Knowledge, page 300.

“The Self, the Divine, the Supreme Rality, the All, the Transcendent – The One in all these aspects is then the object of Yogic knowledge.”

Sri Aurobindo points out that. our ordinary intellectual notions are a stumbling block in the way of knowledge as they are govened by the error of the senses . . . the seeker must attain right notions of himself and the world in order to pursue by knowledge the real self. Until we know what that is, we burdened with ideas quite opposite the truth.
