Karma Yoga

"The growth out of the ordinary mind into the spiritual consciousness can be effected either by meditation, dedicated work or bhakti for the Divine. In our yoga, which seeks not only a static peace or absorption but a dynamic spiritual action, work is indispensable."
                                                                                                                              - Sri Aurobindo
"It is not the form of the work itself or mere activity but the consciousness and Godward will behind it that are the essence of Karmayoga ; the work is only the necessary instrumentation for the union with the Master of works, the transit to the pure will and power of Light from the will and power of the Ignorance."
                                                                                                                              - Sri Aurobindo

"Auroville is created to realise the ideal of Sri Aurobindo who taught us the Karma Yoga. Auroville is for those who want to do the Yoga of work.
To live in Auroville means to do the Yoga of work.
So all Aurovilians must take up a work and do it as Yoga."
