Description

One of the Special contributions to the lexicon of the integral Yoga is Sri Aurobindo’s introduction of the term psychic being. Standing immobile and silent behind the ordinary mental, vital and physical consciousness of man, the psychic being is the individual expression of the divine essence of each being.

Through an accumulation of higher, Godward experiences during its terrestrial evolution, the psychic personality is developed, growing in strength and influence until it can “come entirely forward, breaking through the mental, vital and physical screen, govern the instincts and transform the nature.

As a true understanding of the concepts of the psychic being is elemental to the practice of the integral yoga, this volume of the ectracts from the works of Sri Aurobindo And the Mother provides a direction for the spiritual seeker’s first steps on the path of self perfection.

Written with clarify, precision, compassion and yogic insight, these selections define the nature of the psychic being; describe how to recognize its presence behind the stubborn assertiveness of the outer nature; and explain how the psychic power, when it comes forward to lead the Sadhana, can open the rest of the nature to the supramental light and Ananda.
