The Telos Model is based on integral yoga psychology extensively described in the collected works of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother. The model given here does not cover the full complexity of the integral model of consciousness mapped by them, instead, this gives only an entry-level basic model to get easy access to integral yoga psychology and its transformational practice.
The nine parts covered are grouped into two, the causal parts and the instrumental parts. The first two are causal, the Central Being beyond time and the Psychic Being evolving in time. The rest are subdivisions of the instrumental nature, Mind, Vital, and Physical. The Mind and Vital are further subdivided into three each. The parts that are results of their intermixing, eg. Vital mind, are not covered in this model for the sake of simplicity. For a detailed understanding please refer back to the original source coming from Sri Aurobindo and The Mother.
