Synthesis of Yoga

Today we begin with Chapter III The Purified Understanding on page 308 from Part Two
The Yoga of Integral Knowledge.

In this chapter Sri Aurobindo clearly puts it that ” ….. a supramental realisation, a re-seeing, a remoulding of our whole existence in the light of the Divine, free from subjection to the appearances of things ….. ” is that to which we aspire.

Understanding and its purification is best expressed through the Sanskrit philosophical term buddhi; excluded from that would be any action of the sense min with its varied and sundry perceptions without distinction of right or wrong, true or illusory . . . the constant leaping of habitual thought (parading as understanding in the average unthinking man). All this is one remove from the animal mind; a half-animal reason subservient to habit, desire, the senses and of no avail in the search for spiritual, philosophical and scientific knowledge.

The next reading will commence on page 312 mid-page continuing through page 316, end of chapter

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..”

Synthesis of Yoga

This reading completes Chapter 2 The Status of Knowledge, Part II The Yoga of Integral Knowledge, pages 303 – 307. Sri Aurobindo continues to teach us that God is in us, in everything, and that our whole being ought to demand God. The whole life and body can be satisfied of God.

Knowledge and experience, which we must attain, are primary means of arriving and possessing identity ; it is ourself that we see and experience but are incomplete unless they culminate in identity, living in all our being the supreme Vedntic knowledge: He am I. A supernal unity with the Ineffable. Actually that is the culmination of all divine knowing; that is also the source of all divine delight and divine living.

The status of knowledge then is the aim of this path and when pursued to its end is only a first approach to the ascent which we have to use until the divine doors swing open into the infinite Light.

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.
