The prefatory note says:
A dynamic meditation needs a dynamic theme.The selections given here from Sri Aurobindo's sonnets are precisely of this genre. Each theme condenses a movement that overwhelms and centres the mind in the appropriate mood. Each has a mantric power of inducing the experience that it embodies.
The commentary is a written meditation offered as an aid in the process.
