Yoga in Savitri – Why? (video clip)

A video clip by Wilfried Schuh from “Yoga in Savitri” series.

Life is not an empty dream. Life is not a senseless movement. There is a goal towards which our journey points. Man as an awakened being, a thinking creature, owes it to himself to know why he is here. He is not merely a living body. He is a being that lives in the physical body, that thinks with an embodied mind. He is a soul, an undying self that stand concealed behind the veils of nature. Man must withdraw his gaze from outside and direct it inwards to find his soul. He must shut his hearing to the noises of the world and in silence listen to intimations from within in order to know the meaning and purpose of his existence on earth, to realize the mission entrusted by God to his soul.

Remember why thou cam’st:
Find out thy soul, recover thy hid self,
In silence seek God’s meaning in thy depths
[Sri Aurobindo, Savitri]
