It is always hazardous to pin down any particular opinion on the basis of a single book or aphorism of Sri Aurobindo although many derive a sort of adolescent glee from such deceptive enterprise. For some others an anti-Western bias provides an insulated chamber and a cozy quilt of complacency to not to bother about any Hegel or Schlegel.
In the teachings of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo the question of the East and the West has been fully reconciled. If we find any contradiction, it is because we are insufficiently devoted to their words. Integral Yoga sits upon a massive infrastructure of philosophy as well as sociological insights. Not a slew of Asanas alone, but an intricately woven web of attitudes is the right reflection of an informed practitioner. [TNM]
