Integral Yoga

It is not what you do but the spirit in which you do it that is important for the integral Yoga.

from Words of the Mother, Volume II

In the integral Yoga there is no distinction between the sadhana (spiritual practice) and the outward life; it is in each and every movement of the daily life that the Truth must be found and practised.

from More Answers from the Mother

The whole world is in a process of progressive transformation; if you take up the discipline of Yoga, you speed up in yourself the process.

A message of hope

When darkness deepens strangling the earth’s breast
And man’s corporeal mind is the only lamp,
As a thief’s in the night shall be the covert tread
Of one who steps unseen into his house.
A Voice ill-heard shall speak, the soul obey,
A power into mind’s inner chamber steal,
A charm and sweetness open life’s closed doors
And beauty conquer the resisting world,
The truth-light capture Nature by surprise,
A stealth of God compel the heart to bliss
And earth grow unexpectedly divine.

from Savitri by Sri Aurobindo
