No confusion in unmediated experience

[Chairman's Speak AVS Presidency International College 
India has been fortunate in being the nurturing ground of some preeminent educators of the stature of Swami Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo, Rabindranath Tagore, Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, Jiddu Krishnamurthy and others.
The multi-racial and multi-cultural composition of our polity has always encouraged liberal thinking and a pragmatic outlook towards intellectual development. Empowerment through education has been inherent in all our systems of governance and we have always tried to learn and assimilate the progressive features of other civilizations and societies from across the world.]

[A life immortal Daily Pioneer July 18, 2011 Sugata Bose talks to Shana Maria Verghis about the biography of his great-uncle Subhash Chandra Bose, the warrior leader, who had many sensitive spots and explains the rumours around his death
Bose later got briefly inspired by Aurobindo Ghosh's activism and left the Indian Civil Service to dedicate himself to India's liberation. His formative influences in later years were prison and exile. And his religion and politics did not mix.]

But then, Sarawgi was a banyan tree of a different nature, one that nourished and sustained life, institutions and talent under his shade. The president of All-India Marwari Federation, Chotanagpur Chamber of Commerce and Industries, Lions Club of Ranchi, Ranchi Sanjeet Parishad, Ranchi Citizen Forum, Rajasthan Chetna Mandal, Sri Chnadumall Jain Bal Mandir, Sri Aurobindo Society, Yuvak Sangh, Ranchi Junior Chamber and RLSM Jain Vidyalaya, he was the life trustee of Marwari Siksha Trust, Ratanlal Jain Charitable Trust and Hanuman Sarawgi Charitable Trust.] 

I’m not very well versed in matters esoteric, but by definition, harbouring confusion should be out of question for “unmediated experience” (to me, a theoretical construct), I suppose. [TNM55 - Re: Integral Leadership by Anurag Banerjee Permanent Link]
