To juxtapose Physical Education and the body with Spirituality seems an anomaly as the body has always been considered an encumbrance in the spiritual pursuit. However, the most distinguishing aspect of Sri Aurobindo’s and The Mother’s Integral Yoga is that its fulfillment includes the divinization of the body. The Mother states:
“You understand, people were asking to be divine in their mind and vital – that is, the whole history of spirituality, the same old theme for centuries – but now, it’s the BODY. It’s the body that asks to participate. Its certainly progress.”
In this New Perspectives webinar, Dr. Lakshman Sehgal, raised under the love and care of The Mother since the age of 4, addresses the unique role that the body has on our inner development and growth of the soul or psychic being. Dr. Sehgal is joined by his wife Hansa, who spent nearly a decade at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, and Vikas Bamba, Director of the Sri Aurobindo Center of Los Angeles.
