Yoga in Everyday Life

Illness – Causes and Cure (Yoga)(2018)


A series of booklets, compiled from the writings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, on specific subjects covering almost all aspects of human life, our daily strivings and our inner needs. Although a compilation, in its very nature, is likely to have a personal and subjective approach, a sincere attempt, however, has been made to be faithful to the vision of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.

Excerpts from Illness – Causes & Cure:

….. all illnesses, all, whatever they may be (I would add even accidents) come from a break in equilibrium. ……… But then, to the equilibrium of the body, you must add the equilibrium of the vital and the mind.
….. there are reasons! – many reasons, numberless reasons. For all these things combine in an extraordinarily complex way, and in order to know, in order to be able to cure an illness, one must find out its cause, not its microbe.
From the ordinary point of view, in most cases, it is usually fear – fear, which may be mental fear, vital fear, but which is almost always physical fear, a fear in the cells – it is fear which opens the door to all contagion.
If you want to get cured there are two conditions. First you must be without fear, absolutely fearless, …… and secondly you must have a complete faith in the Divine protection. These two things are essential.
But if your body has not the will, the resolution to get cured, you may try whatever you like, it won’t be cured.
