Q: Transformation demands a very high degree of aspiration, surrender and receptivity, doesn’t it?
Transformation demands a total and integral consecration. But isn’t that the aspiration of every sincere sadhak?
Total means vertically in all the states of being, from the most material to the most subtle.
Integral means horizontally in all the different and often contradictory parts which make up the outer being (physical, vital and mental).
