Discovering Sri Aurobindo
@SavitriEraParty: Despite their differences Sri Aurobindo gives credit to Dayananda for enunciating a spiritual interpretation of the Veda which he enlarged.
@SavitriEraParty: @i31p1n Many but opposition to Havan rituals and allied rigid literalism or infallibility insisted by the Arya Samaj are primary objections.
@SavitriEraParty: @i31p1n Sri Aurobindo rescued Yoga from physical anchorage before which all rituals & texts are inferior/inadequate & was wary of authority.
@SavitriEraParty: @i31p1n To understand Sri Aurobindo it's essential therefore to be free from prior affiliations/indoctrination & learning with an open mind.
@SavitriEraParty: To apply corrective to Brahmo Samaj, Arya Samaj, Theosophical Society, & Ramakrishna Mission was a challenge for The Mother & Sri Aurobindo.
@SavitriEraParty: Reconciling/repudiating Buddhism, Advaita/Dvaita, Vishishtavaita/Vaishnavism, and Tantra etc. was a major accomplishment of Sri Aurobindo.
@SavitriEraParty: Synthesising the Evolution of Nietzsche, Darwin, Spencer, Bergson, James, Royce et al with Vedic clues was a masterstroke by Sri Aurobindo.
@SavitriEraParty: Sri Aurobindo also kept under leash excessive emphasis on humanism, rationalism, or secularism without abdicating critical/scientific stance.
@SavitriEraParty: A deep Hermeneutical sympathy & Poetic sensibility is what was at the core of Sri Aurobindo's Intuitive theorising & Integral view of world.
@SavitriEraParty: By delving into the Psychology of Social Development & Ideal of Human Unity, Sri Aurobindo could crystallise his #FiveDreams for World Peace.
@SavitriEraParty: The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have opened a vista into the future & everyone is invited to collaborate with Evolution & partake of the Harmony.
