This page says "not to be confused with Swami Satchidananda's integral yoga" - yet, integral yoga is linked from the Swami_Satchidananda wiki page...???

Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet category edit - 'The following passage regarding has been deleted due to its non-NPOV (non-neutral) quality. This claim is rejected by all other students of Integral Yoga, who, among other things, point to the fact that Sri Aurobindo and Mother advocated the finding of the guru within one's own heart. Moreover, she plays a numbers game akin to a Mississippi Riverboat Gambler just out of New Orleans with a fresh deck of marked cards, for with a slight of hand shuffle PNB deals from her own marked deck of occult playing cards and takes bets in a game of numerology in which she always comes out on top!!!' Please read Wikipedia editing standards.

What is the difference between Integral and Supramental Yoga? Did Sri Aurobindo teach two paths of Yoga which are completely unrelated? if not, then the articles should be merged. Sfacets 23:56, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Both terms are used and mean the same thing. And although Sri Aurobindo did occaisonally refer to "Supramental Yoga" - see http://intyoga.online.fr/draftpaz.htm - he much more frequently used the term "Integral Yoga". So definitely the two articles should be merged. M Alan Kazlev 23:52, 30 November 2006 (UTC)


Importance? Context?[edit]

This article lacks information for the reader new to "integral yoga" on 1) why integral yoga is encyclopedically notable - e.g. how many people practice it? where in the world is in practiced? how seriously do its practitioners take it? 2) the context of integral yoga - e.g. what exactly its relationship to other kinds of yoga? or to hinduism?. A criticism section would be good too. At the moment, the article reads like a opaque jargon-heavy promotional guide Bwithh 04:47, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
