At the Feet of The Mother

Initiation into Yoga

The spark in Sri Aurobindo's yoga comes from within in the form of a 'Call for the Yoga', when the person receives an inner conviction that this is what he is meant to do. Another sign is the recognition of the Mother's divinity.
इस हिंदी वार्ता में हमें देखते हैं की हम कैसे जान सकते हैं कि हम योग के लिए तैयार हैं या नहीं, योग की पुकार सच्ची है या नहीं।
The first thing needed is to open some window, however small, so that from time to time we can have a little glimpse and breathe a little air and let in a little sunshine without which one begins to experience stifled even possessing everything else in the world.
One cannot replicate what happens in one person's life into another. That is the mistake that cults and religions do, by standardising the spiritual seeking and fixing methods and techniques.
A Talk in Hindi (audio)
In the beginning of sadhana, it is better to avoid TV or newspaper etc. These things create a bombarding of the senses which creates hurdles in the free flow of the divine energy.
One’s inner attitude determines the way of spiritual life, so the path of genuine evolution opens from within outwards rather than outside in. An inner initiation spontaneously happens with the growth of inner preparation and opening. It could come like a Mantra, or a sentence or an experience. The whole of our life gets its true meaning from this awakening.
