Le Guide du yoga

Depuis son célèbre ashram de Pondichéry, Shrî Aurobindo dirigeait un grand nombre de disciples de toutes cultures, de toutes religions et de tous âges. Aux questions nombreuses et infiniment variées posées par ses disciples, il répondait toujours par des explications et des instructions précises, par l'intermédiaire de lettres. Malgré leur caractère personnel, ces indications avaient une portée suffisamment générale pour qu'Aurobindo décide de les publier afin d'éclairer le chemin de ceux qui désirent comprendre et intégrer l'esprit du yoga. Ce Guide du yoga, dont la traduction a été entérinée par l'auteur lui-même, a depuis longtemps acquis le statut de classique. Il reste un ouvrage de référence pour quiconque veut pratiquer un yoga vivant.
