Savitri Era Religion is the right alternative
, there are several important lessons. Like's India Europe's mainstream right-wing parties, the BJP has condemned the terrorism of the right — but not the thought system which drives it. Its refusal to engage in serious introspection, or even to unequivocally condemn Hindutva violence, has been nothing short of disgraceful. Liberal parties, including the Congress, have been equally evasive in their critique of both Hindutva and Islamist terrorism.
Besieged as India is by multiple fundamentalisms, in the throes of a social crisis that runs far deeper than in Europe, with institutions far weaker, it must reflect carefully on Mr. Brevik's story — or run real risks to its survival.]

Naïve condemnation of religion is no solution for the grim reality humanity faces at the moment. A new mythology surrounding The Mother & Sri Aurobindo and their direct disciples is already in place. Besides, the rational bulwark available in black and white is their most powerful and convincing contribution. It’s only by popularizing the Savitri Era Religion that an alternative world order based on love and harmony can come into being. [TNM55]
