When the purpose of sAdhanA and the final destination of the soul is understood, there remain no more doubts in the sadhaka’s mind as regards the imperativeness of yoga sAdhanA. As we have discussed earlier, yoga is never a matter of choice for any one. It is the essential character of our very existence. Sri Aurobindo’s statement of ‘all life is yoga’ is more understandable in this context.
A birth has been taken. A life has been lived. Purusharthas i.e. the ordained behavioural pattern for living have been followed and all these have culminated in a state of superior awareness and gnosis, a few steps nearer to consciousness of satchidananda– the absolute truth, its realization and the ensuing bliss. Now comes the time in the life of the sadhaka to severe all connections with falsity and go for the pursuit of that final truth.
