Yoga has little to do with techniques and methods which are largely subordinate and secondary. The one important thing is the central and conscious aspiration. It is this that opens the doors of the Spirit rather than any fixed technique.
So also spiritual life has little to do with conventional religiosity. A very religious man may be far from the true spiritual life, often even closed to it. The stages of our evolution towards the spiritual consciousness are discussed in this talk.
Our outer life is a preparation for the inner, and the more conscious we become of our true life, our inner life, the better we are able to deal with the outer life and change it. In this talk we discuss the attitudes helpful to prepare us for the great journey.
This talk deals with the enigma centered around the Divine Mother’s physical withdrawal, Her Work and Her Mission as well as the after effects.
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.’

India can become a catalyst in the process of the New Creation. But it is important that India understands its own true heritage.
