This talk deals with the many sides and shades of human nature, its inherent complexity that one confronts when one takes to the yogic life.
‘The Supramental Manifestation’ which took place upon earth on the 29th Feb 1956 is of crucial importance and marks one of the penultimate result of the tapasya of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.
Where does Sri Aurobindo’s Yoga fit in with regard to the Sanatana Dharma? We can say that Sri Aurobindo has not only revealed to us the secret truths of Sanatana Dharma but also taken it in its unfolding further to the fulfillment of the aspiration that is ingrained within it.
Here we take up questions that arise with regard to Indian Culture. At the same time we also discuss briefly the origin and the context of the Book ‘The Foundations of Indian Culture.’
What really is Indian culture? What we see today is a mixture of many currents and streams and forces and practices. But behind it all is the core of Indian culture burning like a flame of aspiration ever bright and high.

India can become a catalyst in the process of the New Creation. But it is important that India understands its own true heritage. India’s true destiny is to be the Guru of the world, but first it must acquire once again the knowledge of the Spirit, not through book reading but by direct inner experience.

The path of yoga is not an easy walk, the seeker has to often face inner resistances and wage a battle against invisible enemies. It is a long journey that goes beyond a single life-time. It is important to have something of the warrior element in one’s nature for walking the Path.
