= Purification in Integral Yoga =
A certain amount of purification is necessary before there can be any realisation of the Divine.
There are two possibilities, one of purification by personal effort which takes a long time, another by a direct intervention of the Divine Grace which is usually rapid in its action. In both instances, the fire of purification must be lit into which all is thrown with the Divine Name on it.
Purification, in integral yoga, is to make oneself a clear mirror in which the divine reality can be reflected, a clear vessel and an unobstructing vessel into which the divine presence and through which the divine influence can be poured. It means a bringing down of the Divine Consciousness static and dynamic into all parts of the being and the entire replacement of the present consciousness by that. Integral purification, in integral yoga, enables perfect reflection of the divine being in ourselves and perfect outpouring of Truth and law in us.
