Sex and a wiser love

[One day when I went to the Cold Storage where all the MSs are preserved, I could tangibly perceive the whole room filled up with some wonderful fragrance. Comment posted by: RY Deshpande 20 April 2010

[Sublimating the sexual urge through Yoga April 17, 2010 by Sandeep
Sex is a natural urge implanted in human beings for the procreation of the species but when indulged in excess, it leads to the degradation of the soul. The spiritual solution lies neither in forced suppression nor licentious expression but moderation through the application of progressive self-control. from Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo & The Mother]

Linking spirituality to “some wonderful fragrance” or “moderation” in sex belongs to the traditional mode of thinking. The trajectory of a person’s life is guided by a wiser love, and hence laying down a set of guidelines turns out to be redundant.

Many confuse “Yoga for perfect eyesight” for Integral Yoga. Others think Sri Aurobindo’s philosophy being equivalent to Liberation of Tamil Eelam or Tibet. [TNM]
