Supermind in Integral Yoga - Problem of Ignorance Bondage, Liberation and Perfection

PART THREE

Insights from the Veda and the Upanishad

At the same time, it must be mentioned that we have, in the Veda and the Upanishads, as also in the Gita, great insights which can aid us in exploring this aspect of the integral yoga.

(a) Ancient explorations had discovered that all aspects of the world-experience have their fundamental truth in the Supreme Existence. Even the aspect of the power of the Inconscience which seems to be an opposite, a negation of the eternal Reality, it still corresponds to a Truth held in itself by the self-aware and all-conscious Infinite. The Veda had discovered the Inconscience and there is, the image for it in the Veda of 'the infinite rock' that symbolizes the inconscience, and it is affirmed that when the infinite rock is shattered, the seeker uncovers "The Sun dwelling in the darkness".17 It is found that the world's heart is Joy, and Joy dwells in the depths of all things, "the well of honey covered by the rock".18

This discovery is an important clue, and this is confirmed by Sri Aurobindo, when he points out that when we realize the supramental consciousness, we find that among its innumerable powers and innumerable possibilities of its manifestation, it has also a power of plunging the consciousness into a trance of self-involution, a self-oblivion of the Spirit veiled in its own abyss where nothing is manifest but all is inconceivable and can emerge from that
