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 am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!

My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom

Ekaterina, Canada.
I love your company and have been buying a variety of wonderful items from you for many years! Keep up the good work!
