The Mother & Sri Aurobindo are always present

[Comment posted by Sandeep Re: What Jugal told me about Record of Yoga Mirror of Tomorrow
In the physical absence of the Mother, and lacking her emanation within us, one cannot sit back and wait for miraculous descents of some kind to automatically happen. One has to start from scratch and practice Yoga (silence the mind, etc) until one establishes conscious contact with the Mother (or Sri Aurobindo for that matter, because now it makes no difference - its the same consciousness behind both). Once that contact is established, further guidance on individual development can be obtained. 5:58 AM]

Now that the Mother’s direct presence is not available, I guess it would be prudent to practice Hatha Yoga in the initial stages (for those who need it). 12:34 PM]

I may add that in my opinion, in the physical absence of the Mother, the danger of distortion by the vital emotional being that Sri Aurobindo wrote about in the chapter on the Intuitive Mind is very much increased 10:02 PM]

In the absence of the physical presence of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, most of the disciples (both Indians and Westerners) bow down to their ...]

Unfortunately, for disciples and devotees of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, they are left with nothing. But the Vision itself lives on; …]

But remarkably when the Yoga-Tapasya of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother started arriving at the nitty-gritty of the physical transformation, the Will of the Divine in the active dynamics became more and more luminously assertive ...]

It is only for matters relating to history that the “physical absence” of The Mother or Sri Aurobindo is uttered. But when it comes to Yoga, The Mother & Sri Aurobindo are always present, and therefore, it’s wrong to disturb the direct relationship and inner guidance by suggesting alternative methods. The “triple labour of aspiration, rejection and surrender” forms a comprehensive manual of Integral Yoga that takes their living presence as granted. All are, therefore, requested to refrain from using such misleading phrases. [TNM55]
