Poem: from Shri Aurobindo's Savitri (I. 4)

The All-Blissful bore to be insensible. 

Incarnate in a world of strife and pain, 

He puts on joy and sorrow like a robe 

And drinks experience like a strengthening wine. 

He whose transcendence rules the pregnant Vasts, 

Prescient now dwells in our subliminal depths, 

A luminous individual Power, alone. 

The Absolute, the Perfect, the Alone 

Has called out of the Silence his mute Force 

Where she lay in the featureless and formless hush 

Guarding from Time by her immobile sleep 

The ineffable puissance of his solitude. 

The Absolute, the Perfect, the Alone 

Has entered with his silence into space: 

He has fashioned these countless persons of one self; 

He has built a million figures of his power; 

He lives in all, who lived in his Vast alone; 

Space is himself and Time is only he. 

The Absolute, the Perfect, the Immune, 

One who is in us as our secret self, 

Our mask of imperfection has assumed, 

He has made this tenement of flesh his own, 

His image in the human measure cast 

That to his divine measure we might rise; 

Then in a figure of divinity 

The Maker shall recast us and impose 

A plan of godhead on the mortal's mould 

Lifting our finite minds to his infinite, 

Touching the moment with eternity. 

This transfiguration is earth's due to heaven: 

A mutual debt binds man to the Supreme: 

His nature we must put on as he put ours; 

We are sons of God and must be even as he: 

His human portion, we must grow divine. 

Our life is a paradox with God for key.

Bihar School Of Yoga contribution to the world
“Contribution of the Satyananda Tradition to Yoga Sri Swamiji and the Satyananda tradition have made a major contribution to yoga and sannyasa. In order to systematize the practices of yoga it was necessary to create a sequential progression in the structure of yoga, and that is what Sri Swamiji has achieved. To Sri Swamiji goes the credit for the combinations of techniques and presentation of the pawanmuktasana series, parts one (anti-rheumatic), two (anti-gastric) and three (shakti bandhas). He also incorporated components of tantric nyasa into the yogic system in the form of yoga nidra. The sequence in which the practices of pranayama are taught today by the majority of yogic schools was

Psychospacial Meditation
Q: I have been mediating since 14 now I am 20 initially I felt quite calm any detached but slowly I became  irritated and depressed sort of. Should I stop meditation and yoga? A: The irritation/depression is likely to be frustration with your life. You might like to think about what you want out of your life and go after it systematically. A good place to start is a vision board and new experiences and training. Meditation and yoga just reveals what is there, it doesn't create the difficult emotions, it just allows them time/space to rise up and inform our lives. ——— If one focuses the Mind’s-Eye in a directional spacial orientation: 1.
