Surrender in the Integral Yoga – A Compilation by Jamshed Mavalwalla

The Mother once said, “It is not by books that Sri Aurobindo ought to be studied but by subjects — what he has said on the Divine, on Unity, on religion, on evolution, on education, on self-perfection, on supermind, etc., etc.”

The present compilation in ePDF format aims to bring together all that Sri Aurobindo and the Mother have written on ‘Surrender’. It is meant for those who wish to understand the concept of Surrender in the Integral Yoga; it also serves as an invaluable guide to seekers who wish to practice it. The quotations have been divided into 20 captioned sections and further subsections for the ease of comprehension of the reader, all conveniently linked from the Contents section for easy navigation.

While mentioning about the importance of personal effort in Integral Yoga, Sri Aurobindo says that “the personal effort required is a triple labour of aspiration, rejection and surrender.” We hope to follow up this book with comprehensive compilations on ‘Aspiration’ and ‘Rejection’ as practiced in the Integral Yoga.
