Commentaries on 'Elements Of Yoga'
Description
Publisher's Note

This book contains the text of Sri Aurobindo's Elements of Yoga and the Mother's oral commentaries on it. Elements of Yoga is a compilation of Sri Aurobindo's replies to some elementary questions about Yoga raised by a disciple during the years 1933 to 1936. First published in 1953 and reissued in 1956, the text has long been out of print and is therefore being reproduced here as the first part of the book.

The Mother's commentaries on Elements of Yoga were given from April to June of 1954 to the members of her "Wednesday Class", held weekly at the Ashram Playground. This class consisted of a large gathering of students of various ages and Ashram members, including school teachers. After reading out a portion of the text, the Mother would answer any questions raised by members of the class. She did not systematically discuss all the subjects in the book, but did cover most of its central ideas. These commentaries are reproduced from pages 109-202 of Questions and Answers 1954, Volume 6 of the Mother's Collected Works.

I just got the package delivered. The books look in good condition from outside. Thanks again. It is always a pleasure doing business with you.
Shambhu, Brooklyn
I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
