Pragmatism is a philosophical tradition centered on the linking of practice and theory. It describes a process where theory is extracted from practice, and applied back to practice to form what is called intelligent practice. Pragmatism is based on the premise that the human capability to theorize is necessary for intelligent practice. Theory and practice are not separate spheres; rather, theories and distinctions are tools or maps for finding our way in the world. Pragmatism holds that an ideology or proposition is true if it works satisfactorily, that the meaning of a proposition is to be found in the practical consequences of accepting it, and that unpractical ideas are to be rejected.

The Divine Mother is a concept in yogic and Hindu philosophy that refers to the feminine aspect of the primal creator of the universe, or the spiritual spark of all life. In Hinduism, the Divine Mother may also be used as a term to refer to several of the supreme goddesses, including Adi Parashakti and Bhagavathi.
Sri Aurobindo, in his teachings about Integral yoga, particularly emphasized the significance of the Divine Mother. In terms of spiritual development, he believed that the final stage of perfection was surrender to the Divine Mother. Devotion to the Divine Mother is considered the highest form of worship.
The Divine Mother represents the true power of love, safety and transcendental consciousness. This is different from egoistic notions of power, which often involve dominance and control.

Moha is a Sanskrit term meaning “delusion.” It refers to the Hindu and Buddhist concept of ignorance that prevents the understanding of Truth. In yogic philosophy and the “Hatha Yoga Pradipika,” moha is described as infatuation that clouds the mind. Hatha yoga is seen as one method of overcoming obstacles to the Truth (like moha).
Generally speaking, in Buddhist, Hindu and yogic traditions, the delusion or ignorance of which moha refers to is a lack of understanding of the true nature of the Self and of reality as it truly exists. Through a spiritual path, such as the practice of yoga, it is thought that moha can be replaced with panna, or wisdom.
