Splendid USP of Savitri Era Religion
The teachings of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo, in essence, varies substantially from not only Western metaphysics but also Nagarjuna’s philosophy. A significant consequence of this is that the divorce of religion and philosophy has been annulled. This epochal synthesis of religion, philosophy and science accomplished by The Mother & Sri Aurobindo is a splendid USP.
Bonded by religious and political doctrines, majority of people are unwilling to acknowledge or accept this. Intellectual inertia and skepticism also prevent many from benefiting from this new knowledge system. Besides, the role of the leftist devotees in systematically spreading confusion and cynicism is a major factor.
Savitri Era Religion pursues the agenda of demolishing the age-old superstitions and contradictions embedded in all faiths. Demystifying complex ontological pronouncements is another priority area. Undergirding ethical imperatives with adequate aesthetic anchorage, however, is the most challenging task. [TNM]
