On the Darshan day of 24th November, we celebrate the anniversary of the descent of the Overmental Consciousness and the founding of Sri Aurobindo Ashram. The Card distributed in the Ashram on 24th November this year contains a beautiful message of Sri Aurobindo on what is the true purpose of Yoga.
There is behind all this life the look of an eternal
Being upon its multitudinous becomings … But this
knowledge is valueless for Yoga if it is only an
intellectual and metaphysical notion void of life and
barren of consequence; a mental realisation alone
cannot be sufficient for the seeker. For what Yoga
searches after is not truth of thought alone or truth of
mind alone, but the dynamic truth of a living and
revealing spiritual experience.
