Four Aids To Yoga-Siddhi, The


From the chapter “The Four Aids” in “The Synthesis of Yoga”

SKU: BFAYS/SA Categories: ,


From the chapter, “The Four Aids”, from The Synthesis of Yoga, plus additional material from the letters of Sri Aurobindo.

“Yoga-siddhi, the perfection that comes from the practice of Yoga, can be best attained by the combined working of four great instruments. There is, first, the knowledge of the truths, principles, powers and processes that govern the realisation — sastra. Next comes a patient and persistent action on the lines laid down by the knowledge, the force of our personal effort — utsaha. There intervenes, third, uplifting our knowledge and effort into the domain of spiritual experience, the direct suggestion, example and influence of the Teacher — guru. Last comes the instrumentality of Time — kala; for in all things there is a cycle of their action and a period of the divine movement.”
