Indian sages discovered the Infinite Brahman and devised various yogic disciplines to reach him. The main condition is to give up life. In a world where rationality is not yet the ruling force, Sri Aurobindo saw that Man can evolve into the next species, the Supramental Being, if 12 yogis attain the Supramental consciousness. In their absence, HE decided to achieve that goal by working in the subtle plane, left the body in 1950 and achieved it in 1956. The Divine Mother continued His work and reached further spiritual heights.
Sri Aurobindo added a new dimension to yoga: the Infinite Force above can descend into our finite life and flower as Spiritual Prosperity, which includes material abundance. Yoga is not for all, but the yogic force is available to all for progress in life. One who invokes this Force can witness his life endlessly expanding. What the West has achieved in the last 500 years using the power of Mind, Indians can achieve in a very short time if they know how to express the Spiritual Power in daily life.
As an introduction to their Integral Yoga, this book summarises 2000 pages of Sri Aurobindo's writings, offering theoretical explanations as well as the experiences of innumerable devotees.The last chapter suggests a Token Experiment. For Indians who have not given up their spiritual heritage and westernized their minds, this experiment will reveal the above spiritual Truth as an endless expansion in their lives. The essential condition is utter Truthfulness.
