All Life is Yoga: Sri. Aurobindo’s Vision

Sri Aurobindo begins one of his greatest works, ‘Synthesis of Yoga’ with the chapter titled ‘Life & Yoga’, where he explores in a systematic manner the work and movements of Nature towards a higher synthesis and evolution – a task of high priority for her. Through this exploration he brings out in a Puissant manner that all Life essentially is an unfolding of Yoga at various levels. This talk seeks to present this vision of Sri Aurobindo as part of the theme, ‘Life in Yoga’.
