Choose between Hinduism and Savitri Era Religion

[Office bearers of the Sri Aurobindo Society must r...: This post is so childish it is obviously a fabrication. It is ridiculous to suggest that this pastiche of various leftist stereotypes of the "Hindutva" Asura is in any way representative of the general opposition to the book. Posted by Anonymous to Savitri Era Open Forum at 5:17 PM, September 01, 2010]

Fabrication no doubt, but it raises the all very important issue of the relationship between Hinduism and Savitri Era Religion. If they are two different religions, then one has to choose either and in that case the matter becomes problematic. Pretending that ours is not a religion suits to most because this difficult decision is deferred. Such a deceptive state of affairs, admittedly, cannot continue for long. For all legal/practical purposes one has to choose and that will be a truly moral act. [TNM]
