What is the Integral Yoga ?
There are many Yogas, many spiritual disciplines, paths towards liberation and perfection, Godward ways of the spirit. Each has its separate aim, its peculiar approach to the One Reality, its separate method, its helpful philosophy and its practice. The integral Yoga takes up all of them in their essence and tries to arrive at a unification (in essence, not in detail) of all these aims, methods, approaches; it stands for an all-embracing philosophy and practice.
Sri Aurobindo

The ways of the Divine are not like those of the human mind or according to our patterns and it is impossible to judge them or to lay down for Him what He shall or shall not do, for the Divine knows better than we can know. If we admit the Divine at all,both true reason and Bhakti seem to me to be at one in demanding implicit faith and surrender.
– Sri Aurobindo

Vasudev Murthy on the Oudh

Professor Vasudev Murthy has incorporated and adapted the Indian/Hindustani scales and music technique to the Arabic Oudh. For him music is a true friend. Feeling the music is the most essential aspect of appreciation, learning and playing. Raags are names of feelings, when played right, they create a perceivable image for the listener. Recognition of notes is a process that takes time and experience and is a milestone to reach. Musicians not only hear sounds but also hear the parallel structures of the notes, but it does not come easy.

Professor Vasudev Murthy is the author of the book “What the Raags Told Me”.
