04. The Foundation of Sadhana

Fragment ID: 1169

Even when there is the peace and the wideness, these things [vital physical ego-movements] can float on the surface and try to come in – only then they do not occupy the consciousness but touch it merely. It is what was regarded by the old yogis as a mechanical remnant of Prakriti, a continuation of its blind habit which remained after the essential liberation of the self. It was treated lightly as of no importance – but that view is not tenable in our sadhana which aims not only at a liberation of the Purusha but at a complete transformation of the Prakriti also.
