2014 is the Centenary year of The Life Divine
@SavitriEraParty: 2014 is not merely about Elections but is the Centenary year of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo meeting & publication of ARYA & The Life Divine.
@SavitriEraParty: The feminist themes The Mother pushed through her gender equality idea embedded in Sri Aurobindo's larger ontological framework are precious
@SavitriEraParty: 23 years of The Mother's experiments in collective living after Sri Aurobindo's passing away in 1950 constitutes an interesting episode.
@SavitriEraParty: The Mother passed away in 1973 but her pioneering thought and work integrating the East & the West will continue to guide humanity for ever.
@SavitriEraParty: @fgautier26 Sri Aurobindo is a much better and greater theme than expounding on these confusing nitty-gritty on Christianity. @Victor_47
@SavitriEraParty: Safeguarding Evolutionary virtues & Human values tantamount to Vedic inevitability which The Mother & Sri Aurobindo visualise in #FiveDreams
@SavitriEraParty: The Mother & Sri Aurobindo identified the land of India as capable of nurturing the Vedic wisdom and momentum to fight against ignorance.
@SavitriEraParty: The Mother & Sri Aurobindo met on March 29, 1914 a few months before WW-I and fought against Hitler with spiritual power from Puducherry.
@SavitriEraParty: The Mother & Sri Aurobindo came to remind the Indians that the fight for the Vedic Light is not part of history or allegory but concurrent.
@SavitriEraParty: Being on the side of Evolution and foresee the forces of Harmony is the most crucial choice before citizens of India today and to voice it.
@SavitriEraParty: Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar was well read and eminently capable but missed the Evolutionary Integral Ontology of Sri Aurobindo and got misled.
@SavitriEraParty: @WriterRavikumar Dalits say mere economic upliftment not enough, social parity is the goal. Savitri Era Religion can ensure such a scenario.
@SavitriEraParty: Strange that those who rue past economic mistakes committed by Indian rulers are so oblivious of the grave political mistake of the future.
@SavitriEraParty: Seems ironic that those who complain of being victim of political untouchability are recommending the same for some new acquaintances of AAP.
@SavitriEraParty: The most pitiable state of affairs in India today is all are either paid or chained & there is no dominant moral voice in the public domain.
@SavitriEraParty: Nothing is more paradoxical in India today than Mars Orbiter on the one hand and Modi misadventure launched by RSS medievalism on the other.
@SavitriEraParty: @rranjan501 War needs best horses & not merely old horses. The inspiration name of Nitish Kumar brings right now across the country is epic.
@SavitriEraParty: @rranjan501 No doubt, Nitish Kumar earned national attention on the Development plank, but the resistance he applied on BJP is Evolutionary.
@SavitriEraParty: @rranjan501 Never before in the history of India a challenge like the present one had arisen and therefore 2014 will see epic confrontation.
@SavitriEraParty: @rranjan501 See, if we remember the kind of hope & belief people like JP, Lohia & Karpoori Thakur invested in this experiment, that's enough.
@SavitriEraParty: @rranjan501 After attending the Oct 30 Convention, I'm pretty sure that the Third Front plus Left will form a Govt. at the Centre in 2014.
@SavitriEraParty: @rranjan501 Will depend upon the numbers and since most State Parties are autonomous, they'd like to function within a really federal Front.
@SavitriEraParty: @rranjan501 For 2014, they will have to come together, no other option; pure arithmetic. The clarity that Nitish unleashed is liberating!!!
@SavitriEraParty: Nitish Kumar has demonstrated a clear direction before the country by opposing both BJP & the Congress. AAP is giving it a shape in Delhi.
@SavitriEraParty: @rranjan501 Nitish Kumar, obviously.
@SavitriEraParty: @thinkoutofbox Are you hopeful of their survival by that date?
@SavitriEraParty: @amishra77 @SKS_Mumbai Is it a lie that BJP will not be able manage even half of 272?
@SavitriEraParty: Democracy is a game of numbers and no BJP nominee can become PM unless he leaves the party and comes out of the RSS influence & instruction.
@SavitriEraParty: We must get out of this mentality that Third Front Parties produce only 3rd rate leaders. Kejriwal has caught the imagination of the people.
@SavitriEraParty: @vs70 Not BJP alone but a variant of Third Front which was in power. Now that BJP has decided to opt out it's free in its path to extinction.
@SavitriEraParty: @vs70 I repeat that the first priority before the country is to get rid of ivory-tower parties like Congress & BJP and vote for Third Front.
@SavitriEraParty: @vs70 AAP is evolving & as more & more people join it the popular image will reflect more prominently. Right now it's the best bet in Delhi.
@SavitriEraParty: @vs70 Political one-upmanship is part of the Democracy game and we lay citizens are ignorant of what goes on behind the scene & who to blame.
@SavitriEraParty: Evolution and Transformation are watchwords in Sri Aurobindo's Integral Education & Yoga which ensure freedom from chasing solitary virtues.
@SavitriEraParty: The Mother & Sri Aurobindo offer the most reasonable moral anchor and plausible ontology that is at the base of their Integral ideology.
@SavitriEraParty: This is not the time for petty nitpicking but to dare for the big picture. Securing every single vote for AAP & Third Front is a sacred duty.
@SavitriEraParty: Dream of revolution for decades but decline to embrace it when face to face. That's the plight of all those who are indifferent to AAP, alas!
@SavitriEraParty: Jan-andolan-wallahs seem to be still mired in delusion and refuse to come out openly in support of AAP. That precisely helps Congress & BJP.
@SavitriEraParty: Delhi's preference for AAP has unnerved BJP & Congress and momentum will continue till 2014. Third Front is likely to form Govt. on its own.
@SavitriEraParty: Opportune moment for people of Rajasthan-MP-Chhattisgarh to follow Delhi example & discard BJP & Congress to vote for Third Front candidates.
@SavitriEraParty: @vs70 We support freedom but current socio-political climate in India is yet to evolve to that level. People like Nitish Kumar are trying.
@SavitriEraParty: Our Party is against RSS, Congress & the Left. Electoral arithmetic is bringing the Left close to Third Front and Leftist honesty is a plus.
@SavitriEraParty: @vs70 This time the Third Front is going to have many more people and the navigation is in the hands of the Left. So there will be scrutiny.
@SavitriEraParty: @Vidyut Any doubt? What else? Without an Election, there is no Democracy; no legitimacy at least. @sarvatragam
@SavitriEraParty: @vs70 Third Front represents authentic grassroots politics and federalism. If you detest such ideas, then it's fine. I respect your opinion.
@SavitriEraParty: @sarvatragam If candidates of smaller parties & independents win and form Govt. it'd certainly be more responsive towards the people's will.
@SavitriEraParty: @sarvatragam True, if people start rejecting Congress & BJP then they will consciously reward honest independents fighting on modest means.
@SavitriEraParty: @sarvatragam See, Elections are the only means of nurturing a Democracy and hence they are to be held as often as warranted and at all costs.
@SavitriEraParty: @sarvatragam Election Industry offers good opportunity for ploughing back of Black Money into the system and it refurbishes the economy!
@SavitriEraParty: @vs70 Why? Our Party's viewpoints are quite clear and consistent. Sri Aurobindo's vision necessitates annihilation of the Congress and BJP.
@SavitriEraParty: @kalyan_jee1 Political ambition is not a bad thing. Just because Anna & Kej fell out, it doesn't mean their brief partnership lacked trust.
@SavitriEraParty: @kalyan_jee1 I think, you are over-estimating Anna as he was used as a mascot. His role was that much, don't expect further. @sarvatragam
@SavitriEraParty: @kalyan_jee1 See, that's part of the evolution of a new political party and both the camps are still in touch and are of help. @sarvatragam
@SavitriEraParty: @kalyan_jee1 Right now AAP needs our support & goodwill & let's hope that the austere steering of Yogendra Yadav bring success @sarvatragam
@SavitriEraParty: From the ramshackle stage at Jantar Mantar to putting up candidates in each Delhi Assembly Constituency; it's verily valiant journey for AAP.
@SavitriEraParty: @kalyan_jee1 It'd be better if you disclose on what basis you are making these predictions. AAP deserves a chance in Delhi. @sarvatragam
@SavitriEraParty: @sarvatragam All, finally, depends upon the numbers and they are sure to zero in on some consensus with the astute coordination of the Left.
@SavitriEraParty: Sad that the people of MP, 36'Garh, & Rajasthan don't have strong Third Front parties, but even then they must vote against Congress & BJP.
@SavitriEraParty: @sarvatragam That eventuality will be a compulsion of numbers but unlikely to happen in 2014. Besides, Dynasty is fast losing its charisma.
@SavitriEraParty: @rahuldev2 No point in being sentimental about it. Sonia ruling India is itself another paradox. May lead to the awakening of Indian Spirit.
@SavitriEraParty: @sarvatragam What transpired in the Oct 30 Convention which I attended is very interesting. Now the consensus seemed leading towards Mulayam.
@SavitriEraParty: Fortunately, opposition to Congress and BJP is no longer personal but on strict ideological grounds. Their worn out legacy must get burial!
@SavitriEraParty: @sarvatragam Past situation was different & they are responding to graver challenges now. At least that came across in the Oct 30 Convention.
@SavitriEraParty: Defeating Congress and BJP is the bounden duty of every citizen now. So AAP and Third Front can rewrite the political future of the country.
@SavitriEraParty: AAP has no past baggages but many are unsure about its ideological moorings. Yet it's the best available device to sweep away BJP & Congress.
@SavitriEraParty: Let AAP win & form a Govt. in Delhi & then the Party will be forced to function in harmony with the priorities of other Third Front partners.
@SavitriEraParty: Despite apparent shortcomings, Third Front victory in 2014 will be a genuine triumph of the grassroots politics in India and its federalism.
@SavitriEraParty: Third Front is poised to capture power at the Centre without the Congress or the BJP for the first time in the history of Indian Democracy.
@SavitriEraParty: @YograjCS The first priority is to eradicate Congress and BJP. Then, the voter is free to select his own favourite among rest of candidates.
@SavitriEraParty: AAP in Delhi has presented a never-before opportunity to teach BJP & Congress a lesson. Rest of India will follow the Delhi verdict in 2014.
@SavitriEraParty: Vote for any honest candidate other than the BJP and the Congress. This is the Mantra to liberate the country from servitude and ignorance.
@SavitriEraParty: Thanks to the Third Front, the choice before the voters in the country is pretty simple: Never to vote for the Congress or the BJP candidate.
@SavitriEraParty: The way the BJP supporters have trained their guns on AAP orchestratedly proves that the latter is now a real force to reckon with in Delhi.
@SavitriEraParty: Blessing & praying for someone for cracking Medical Entrance test is understandable but to make one PM with just hundred & odd is irrational.
@SavitriEraParty: Reliance on spectacle & theatricals has increased with the premise that theory or intellectuality matters less in politics. That's not true!
@SavitriEraParty: The intellectual & poetic adventure Sri Aurobindo imparts is unsurpassed but the young in India repose their faith on a bunch of uneducated.
@SavitriEraParty: Now, India has a sizeable young population armed with English education but narrow ideology prevents them from wrestling with Sri Aurobindo.
@SavitriEraParty: August 15, 1947 was Sri Aurobindo's 75th birth anniversary and his #FiveDreams message to the Nation was broadcast the previous evening.
@SavitriEraParty: Among those straddled the political stage in India during the 20th Century, only Sri Aurobindo had the Yogic vision apart from being writer.
@SavitriEraParty: Sri Aurobindo was one of his prime inspirations. [@krishnarjun108: Wish there is material available on the ideas of Shyama Prasad Mukherjee]
@SavitriEraParty: @kesarmakwanou @sumanthbharatha @UtsavMitra @amargov I find it a bit amusing with use of "best" since none of you has a thorough background.
@SavitriEraParty: @sumanthbharatha @amargov @UtsavMitra http://t.co/SipScYV2KZ
@SavitriEraParty: @amargov There is much merit in researching and comparing the Indian languages and discovering their relative worth. http://t.co/IncUO3lOgt
@SavitriEraParty: @amargov Using alternative scripts shouldn't be opposed merely on Nationalist sentiments & the pragmatic approach is to permit wider reach.
@SavitriEraParty: @amargov Agree with your perception but then scripts available in India should get a fair chance on merit before any radical shift to Latin.
@SavitriEraParty: @amargov I'd suggest adopting the "Odia" script at the pan-Indian level and retain originality as well as beauty.
@SavitriEraParty: @m_vijayakumar Sri Aurobindo fits the prescription perfectly but unfortunately his socio-political theory hasn't received adequate reception.
@SavitriEraParty: @m_vijayakumar All of them form a mosaic. Studying the role Sri Aurobindo played 100 years back offers the complete picture. @ranganaathan
@SavitriEraParty: Anna Hazare is a cypher today but twenty years hence AAP will build a statue of him taller than Patel's. Religion also involves Real-Estate.
@SavitriEraParty: @thinkoutofbox Like Modi Religion, the AAP Religion is also highly dependent on theatrical devices for proselytisation of young enthusiasts.
@SavitriEraParty: Hari Om http://t.co/GOKXOSyhLH vainly attempts to appropriate the Nationalist legacy of Sri Aurobindo for Modi Religion through half-truths.
@SavitriEraParty: Politically a disaster, but from anthropological perspective, Modi Religion is an enabler intellectually like its predecessor, Kanshi Ram's.
@SavitriEraParty: Babulal Marandi tried to highlight Bijli-Sadak-Pani issues in the CPM sponsored anti-Communalism Convention, but religion dominated debate.
@SavitriEraParty: Anti-intellectualism fostered by Sonia and RSS and neglect of a Century-old warnings of Sri Aurobindo contributed to rise of Modi Religion.
[@m_vijayakumar: @SavitriEraParty The "Modi religion" is about power/greed and fuelled by corporate funding, buying of media etc. It is not just about merit]
@SavitriEraParty: But the maximum Modi Religion will reach can be estimated from the critique Sri Aurobindo admits against the Overman conceived by Nietzsche.
@SavitriEraParty: Modi Religion, with statues and all, including toilets, will harness the modernity narrative & pose a challenge to the Semitic imagination.
@SavitriEraParty: @m_vijayakumar The way Modi Religion has taken root, it has the potential of overthrowing Hinduism which was attempted since Ram Mohan Roy.
@SavitriEraParty: @m_vijayakumar Zoroastrian & Bahai are 2 other. Savitri Era Religion also claims Vedic pedigree & can successfully counter the Modi Religion.
@SavitriEraParty: @m_vijayakumar Even then, history is witness to advent of at least 5 Semitic religions successively & they all survive at different scales.
@SavitriEraParty: New Religions & internal rivalries have contributed to growth of Science, Philosophy, Literature & Movies in the West, but India languishes.
@SavitriEraParty: Quite strange that people welcome fresh models of mobile phones with new features but not a new Religion with science-compatible ontology!
@SavitriEraParty: It's true that people feel attracted to Sri Aurobindo Ashram and Auroville but get scared on discovering that it's completely a new Religion.
@SavitriEraParty: Scriptural boundaries are suffocating in old Religions whereas Savitri Era Religion is based on modern-scientific ontology of Sri Aurobindo.
@SavitriEraParty: @ashutoshibn7 Sri Aurobindo imparts the integral perspective pertaining to politics and religion based on the Vedic dialectic of Evolution.
@SavitriEraParty: When one visits a doctor he doesn't demand a specific medicine. Similarly studying Sri Aurobindo only for Gita or Nationalism is not enough.

@SavitriEraParty: @irfhabib The Gandhi vs. Sri Aurobindo story that is waiting would surely be more interesting and intellectually stimulating. #FiveDreams
@SavitriEraParty: @RajivMessage You complain against Westerners but why you have forgotten Lal-Bal-Pal & Sri Aurobindo as pre-Gandhian pioneers? @GirishPodar
@SavitriEraParty: @BhaskarChat But your present political persuasions hardly match those ideals. Alas!
[@thinkoutofbox: @SavitriEraParty Surely u would find diff. opinions about Tagore n Sri Aurobindo.]
@SavitriEraParty: @thinkoutofbox Our job on Twitter is to sift genuine affirmations from "different opinions."
@SavitriEraParty: @thinkoutofbox Tagore was a dreamer but Sri Aurobindo, his contemporary, was a visionary. #FiveDreams
@SavitriEraParty: Including Puducherry in the itinerary between 17 & 24 of this month can be a life changing opportunity for anyone who seeks peace & harmony.
@SavitriEraParty: Instead of acquiring theoretical grounding from fancy sources & celebrity endorsements, a systematic study of Sri Aurobindo's works empowers
@SavitriEraParty: The Mother & Sri Aurobindo are the only teachers who give authentic guidance on secularism, feminism, etc based on secure ontological clues.
@SavitriEraParty: Sri Aurobindo attained Siddhi on Nov 24, 1926 & remained confined to his room till he passed away in 1950. The Mother left on Nov 17, 1973.
@SavitriEraParty: [Our worth lies only in the measure of our effort to exceed ourselves, and to exceed ourselves is to attain the Divine. ~The Mother] #Risida
@SavitriEraParty: @drhpshukla No one disputes such abstract assertions but you are avoiding specific names after the YY faux pas!
@SavitriEraParty: @drhpshukla I guess, you mean to say that every one is responsive to Sri Aurobindo in more or less degree & at some point of time or other.
@SavitriEraParty: @drhpshukla Fine, who are others in India's public life that you feel / see as positively responsive to Sri Aurobindo's vision, at present?
@SavitriEraParty: @drhpshukla My question is how do you, or anyone else for that matter, ascertain(s) who is responsive and who is not? A game of speculation?
@SavitriEraParty: @drhpshukla I don't know how do you establish YY "adores" Sri Aurobindo. Whether it's just religious or he believes in his political vision?
@SavitriEraParty: @drhpshukla Oh sure, YY is a known scholar but the Interview has no expression of any sympathy towards Sri Aurobindo's vision of the future.
@SavitriEraParty: Had Chakravarti Rajagopalachari (1878-1972) been the first Prime Minister, India's destiny would have been different. http://t.co/6a2oOFPe55
@SavitriEraParty: @yksingh26 The country should also remember the vital moves of Vithalbhai Patel (1873 – 22 October 1933). http://t.co/wq2obxoabf
@SavitriEraParty: @IndiaOpines Thanks for recognition. Plz feel free to borrow/quote content from my original contributions archived at http://t.co/ftaDVgkETo

@SavitriEraParty: There is bound to be a huge section succumbing to Modak intoxication and there must be a sizeable force to apply healing balm and antidotes.
@SavitriEraParty: Being within a crowd, - be it religion or politics, - has also its motivations in Freudian pleasures, besides Unity. http://t.co/N91Ir5gif8
@SavitriEraParty: Overdose of concern for heritage and historical figures is as much a drag on intelligence as investigating scientific anchorage of mythology.
@SavitriEraParty: The Mother & Sri Aurobindo inspire us to ponder over challenges of future rather than worrying about moving pawns on chessboard of history.
@SavitriEraParty: Dates in Sri Aurobindo's life: http://t.co/e4yff7z1qf #FiveDreams
@SavitriEraParty: [In October 1913, Sri Aurobindo changed house and started living in Rue Saint Martin. This house became the office of "Arya" a year later.]
@SavitriEraParty: It's tempting to write any number of history books without a reference to Puducherry but Sri Aurobindo is the pivot to any scheme of Future.
@SavitriEraParty: Erect any theory or dig any ism, all honest intellectual quests are bound to lead to the Integralism of Sri Aurobindo and Vedic Evolution.
@SavitriEraParty: Sri Aurobindo's larger Ontological mapping spanning three centuries ranks higher than ordinary sociological understanding of current events.
@SavitriEraParty: The kind of widespread intellectual slavery that is noticed on Twitter proves that Independence came to India nearly a millennium earlier!!!
@SavitriEraParty: Twitter must espouse knowledge and not be a slave to propaganda. Sri Aurobindo's writings help to understand the why of history & politics.
@SavitriEraParty: No longer we complain of scarcity as Twitter has democratised Knowledge distribution but the problem is partisan purveyors yoked to careers.
@SavitriEraParty: Twitter wordsmiths owe a responsibility towards truth & accuracy. Let not the herd mentality & propaganda infect the brains of young Indians.
@SavitriEraParty: Those who are invoking Sri Aurobindo to justify or legitimise RSS sponsored propaganda by tiny quotes are extremely misguided. #FiveDreams
@SavitriEraParty: Vedic fight against Vrtra was not a parable for Sri Aurobindo rather he successfully confronted Hitler by strategically aligning with Allies.
@SavitriEraParty: Sri Aurobindo himself denied any direct correspondence to mythology but identified Hitler's emergence as threat to Evolutionary progress.
@SavitriEraParty: Mythologization of 20th Century history will be fodder for future politics in India but the core event is how Sri Aurobindo thwarted Hitler.
@SavitriEraParty: Human love for excellence & natural curiosity seeks higher & pure secrets of existence. Sri Aurobindo explains them all with Vedic authority.
@SavitriEraParty: @brownbrumby Not to recognise 1950 as a break from the last 5000 years remains a major trap for the RSS with which it is yet to reconcile.
@SavitriEraParty: @ProfVarshney No, the patronising tone is very much evident. The "fighting" theme is also uncalled for which seeks to reinforce distinction.
@SavitriEraParty: @DrManishKumar1 Thankfully, people's belief is not uniform and hence the picture that emerges is like one's reflection upon an uneven mirror.
@SavitriEraParty: @AgentSaffron Be it AAP or APCO, nothing moves without money and its unseen journey.

@SavitriEraParty: After the President visited the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry, a retired High Court judge conducting inquiry against the Ashram resigned.
