Aurobindo later developed a method of spiritual practice he called Integral Yoga, in which the central theme of writings was the evolution of human life into a "life divine" on earth. In 1926, with the help of his spiritual collaborator, Mirra Alfassa (referred to as "The Mother"), he founded the Sri Aurobindo Ashram.
