Consciousness and health

On Fantasy and Reality

Raag Yadava

This piece is a short reflection on taking the mystic core of religion seriously. With rational empiricism on one side and conventional modes of worship on the other, the claim of mysticism is often reduced to imagination or fantasy, or dismissed as a biologically constructed experience. It is rather a real and concrete, yet non-material, expression of our inmost being, in both its individual and collective manifestations, and one that we must work to discover for the new creation to be born tomorrow out of today’s tumult.

Project Susthiti — healing our Covid caregivers with Music Therapy and Yoga Therapy

Arnab Bishnu Chowdhury, Dr. Bhalendu Vaishnav, Sevastiana Korotynskaia, Karen Miscall-Bannon


The Covid pandemic has opened up new challenges for healthcare systems, for care receivers and caregivers.

However, there is a possibility of collective reorganisation of mankind as the spiritual evolution carries us further. This article discusses the possibilities of a spiritualised society in the future. Read more...

Parts of the Being and Illness

Sri Aurobindo

Your description makes it clear that the obstruction in the throat is not physical, it is the obstruction of a formation of obscure force in the physical mind, — for the throat is the centre of the physical mind. In your other parts of the mental there is not any opposition, but here in the physical mind there is probably a habitual form of old external ideas which are rejected but something of them remains. It is this that translates itself in the obstruction and pain. It is a mechanical difficulty which we must try to remove. Read more...

Integral Health


Dr. Soumitra Basu

In the Indian tradition, Reality has been experientially perceived as a triune of Existence-Consciousness-Bliss or Sachchidānanda. Bliss or Ānanda is the value aspect of Reality but in its pure poise it is inaccessible to the ordinary human being. In fact, any premature attempt to access this aspect of Reality might be counter-productive unless one has the experience of identifying with the inmost essence of one’s consciousness — the ego-surpassing fourth-dimensional principle named by Sri Aurobindo as the psychic being.
