Inspiration

“There must grow an International spirit and outlook, international forms and institutes must appear, perhaps such developments, dual or multilateral citizenship, willed interchange or voluntary fusion of cultures” - Sri Aurobindo

Meditation Alliance International® is inspired by and endvours to bring to life this vision and dream of Sri Aurobindo.

SRI AUROBINDO

Rishi, Mystic, Sage, Visionary, Poet, Revolitonary. These are just some words put modestly to describe Sri Aurobindo. In truth, it cannot be put to words what it is that Sri Aurobindo is and what he represents. A national leader, who withdrew from his political mission - the freedom of India from the then British empire, when  he was guided by his spiritual experiences and guidance to go to Pondicherry, where he worked towards a greater mission, the Liberation of all of Mankind and the Earth itself.
 
Sri Aurobindo created "Integral Yoga". Unlike other Yogas, Sri Aurobindo's Yoga did not aim at the Liberation of the Individual Consciousness. This was instead, what he refered to as a necessary pre condition for His Yoga, the aim of which was to bring down instead, what he coined as "The Supramental Consciousness" into Matter on Earth. Unlike traditional Yogas where the body is often referred to as an obstacle towards realization, Sri Aurobindo's Yoga emphasises on Realization in the Body. Sri Aurobindo also revealed to the world the true meaning, light, secrets and essence of several sacred Hindu texts.

Sri Aurobindo taught that with the development of Mind, individual human beings can, if they choose, use their will and intelligence to begin to participate consciously in this process of self-discovery and self-exploration. This knowledge founds an optimistic and dynamic world-view, which gives each individual a meaningful place in a progressive cosmic unfolding, and casts our understanding of human endeavour, whether individual or collective, in a new and purposeful perspective. Many facets of this world-view are elaborated in the 35 volumes of Sri Aurobindo's Collected Works.    Source
