Ashesh Joshi on his new book

On the occasion of International Yoga Day, I talk with Ashesh Joshi who released his new book ‘Introduction to Integral Yoga’ in Savitri Bhavan. In this interview, Joshi discusses why he felt compelled to pen this book, his work in Auroville and the world running workshops and finally, the power of Integral Yoga.

Synthesis of Yoga Pt. 1, Ch. 10

The Three Modes of Nature, chapter 10, page 232, begins with an explanation of these three modes, their qualities, their workings.

These modes, termed gunas in Indian books, are named as sattva, rajas, tamas. No man is entirely one or another: Sri Aurobindo points out that all three are present in everyone and, everything; a constant combining, separating of their relations is in play.

In detail each guna is explained. One’s dominant guna is not the soul type of the individual but rather an index made for the present existence, at the particular moment of his evolution in Time.

A gaping oversight – Overman

The aim of the Sri Aurobindo-Mother avatar was to establish the foundations of a new species beyond the human: superman. In The Supramental Manifestation (1949) Sri Aurobindo wrote that, for the superman to be incarnated on the Earth, an intermediary range of transitory beings would be necessary. The Mother called these beings surhommes, overmen. Moreover, she said explicitly that to realize the transitory beings in their presumably huge variety was our task. This talk given by Georges van Vrekhem at Savitri Bhavan on 12 November 2011 is the

sixth of the series of eleven talks.
