AlOchanaamR^itaM

AlochanaamR^itaM The Plasticity of Indian Shastra As the Indian mind ... advances westward towards inevitable conquest, it must inevitably carry with it Yoga and Vedanta for its banners wherever it goes. But in order that the victory may not be slow, it is necessary that whatever India has to offer should be stated to the West in language that the West can understand... Europe will accept nothing which is not scientific... Undoubtedly, for practical purposes the West is right....

Indian knowledge possesses such a scientific basis, but ... expressed only in broad principles, compact aphorisms.
The aphoristic method has great advantages. It prevents the mind from getting encrusted in details and fossilizing there It allows a science to remain elastic and full of ever new potentialities for the discoverer. No doubt, it has disadvantages. It leaves much room for inaccuracy ...

For this [reason],
among other more important reasons, the Indian mind has thought it wise to give a firm and absolute authority to the guru...
In Europe, the manual replaces the guru; the mind of the learner is rigidly bound by the written rule and detail not by the more adaptable and flexible word of the guru.

- Sri Aurobindo (The Psychology of Yoga, from his notebook of 1911).

Food for thought

When you said "Yes" to Me, you gave up the right to be like everyone else. That is why you draw experiences to yourself that will cleanse yourself of that which does not fit who you are. Over and over, again and again, until I make you see that the past no longer works. I challenge you and tempt you every day with your past, so that you may see that the past is the ultimate delusion. When you said "yes" to Me you gave Me your body, your thoughts and your actions. When they don't suit the new you, the uncomfortableness is unbearable. It will be so EVERY time and when you realize this fully, then and only then will you completely give up desire. For this is the only way man will learn. Very seldom does he learn by quiet reminders. Man's desires and pitfalls are placed there so that I may do My work. When you give up totally, then the temptations will fade. I will never give up on you. Every slip will become harder and harder to bear and less easy to remedy. You will tire of your foolishness because I love you and though not completely aware of it, you did say "Yes".

- Sri Satya Sai Baba.
