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.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
