The Synthesis of Yoga

The Synthesis of Yoga: Sri Aurobindo’s principal work on yoga, it is at once an examination of the traditional yogas and a most thorough examination of his own method of Integral Yoga.
This reading continues in part Two: The Yoga of Integral Knowledge, Chapter 26 Samadhi mid-page 523.

” … The greatest value of the dream-state of Samadhi lies in its power to open up easily higher ranges and powers of thought, emotion, will by which the soul grows in height, range and self-mastery. … it can by an absorbed inner joy and emotion … prepare itself for the delight of union with the divine Beloved, the Master of all bliss, rapture and Ananda. … in the untrained psychic being the experiences of the trance are a blank to the waking mind; as it becomes the master of its Samadhi, able to pass without any gulf of oblivion from the inner to the outer waking. … when this has been once done, what is attained in the inner state becomes easier to acquire by the waking consciousness. … For in a Yoga which embraces all life completely and without reserve, the full use of Samadhi comes only when its gains can be made … the normal possession … in the human being.”
