Essays on Yoga

Writings by Alok Pandey on Yoga

... very often we bind ourselves to the letter and not the spirit, the outer sense rather than the deeper inner meaning, the mental understanding rather than the truth being revealed to us.
The Supramental Truth is the truth of the Infinite. It cannot be bound or limited by any one-sided formula or understanding of things, or any process or technique for which we may be eagerly looking for.
The New Creation begins with the Supermind.  All below it including the splendour of the Overmind belongs to the old Creation as the perfect perfection is missing there.
The Mother’s Name however is much more than a mantra, since it invokes not just a power or an aspect of the One but Her who is beyond the One and holds within Herself both the Being and the Non-Being, Manifest and the Unmanifest, Saguna and Nirguna, and yet transcends them all.
Surrender means handing over our life to the Divine and living it the way the Divine wants us to live. It implies three things.
The necessity of personal effort in sadhana diminishes as we progress in surrender and the Divine Mother takes charge of our life and breath and speech and act. Then it is She who does the sadhana in us and all that is needed is to remain open towards Her.
