rant world-consciousness are opposed to it and deny it and try to

               prevent it, and the sadhak will find his own mind, life and body full
               of the most obstinate impediments to its realisation. If you can
               accept the ideal whole-heartedly, face all the diffi  culties, leave the
               past and its ties behind you and are ready to give up everything
               and risk everything for this divine possibility, then only can you
               hope to discover by experience the Truth behind it.
                   The sadhana of this Yoga does not proceed through any set
               mental teaching or prescribed forms of meditation, mantras or oth-
               ers, but by aspiration, by a self-concentration inwards or upwards,

               by self-opening to an Influence, to the Divine Power above us and its
               workings, to the Divine Presence in the heart, and by the rejection
               of all that is foreign to these things. It is only by faith, aspiration and
               surrender that this self-opening can come.

               Aim of the Integral Yoga
                   The aim of the Yoga is to open the consciousness to the
               Divine, to live in the inner consciousness more and more while
               acting from it on the external life, to bring the inmost psychic
               into the front and by the power of the psychic to purify and
               change the being so that it may become ready for transforma-
               tion and in union with the Divine Knowledge, Will and Love.
               Secondly, to develop the Yogic consciousness — i.e. to univer-
               salise the being on all the planes, become aware of the cosmic
               being and cosmic forces and be in union with the Divine on all
               the planes up to the Overmind. Thirdly, to come into contact
               with the transcendent Divine, beyond the Overmind, through
               the supramental consciousness, supramentalise the conscious-
               ness and the nature and make oneself an instrument for the
               realisation of the dynamic Divine Truth and its transforming
               descent into the earth-nature.
