As the supreme Shastra of the integral Yoga is the eternal Veda secret in
the heart of every man, so its supreme Guide and Teacher is the inner
Guide, the World-Teacher, jagad-guru, secret within us.
It is he who destroys our darkness by the resplendent light of his
knowledge; that light becomes within us the increasing glory of his own
self-revelation. He discloses progressively in us his own nature
of freedom, bliss, love, power, immortal being.
He sets above us his divine example as our ideal and transforms the lower
existence into a reflection of that which it contemplates. By the inpouring
of his own influence and presence into us he enables the individual being
to attain to identity with the universal and transcendent.
What is his method and his system?
He has no method and every method. His system is a natural organisation
of the highest processes and movements of which the nature is capable.
Applying themselves even to the pettiest details and to the actions the
most insignificant in their appearance with as much care and
thoroughness as to the greatest, they in the end lift all into the Light and
transform all. For in his Yoga there is nothing too small to be used and
nothing too great to be attempted.
