Sri Aurobindo echoes Vico, Herder, and Hegel
While browsing through “Indian Philosophy and the Consequences of Knowledge” yesterday, I noticed that reference to Sri Aurobindo is absent while Gandhi (as mandatorily) is there. Even the chapter on Consciousness, though alluded to certain notions Sri Aurobindo has foregrounded, doesn’t mention him. While this reticence and exclusion is not uncommon, neglecting Sri Aurobindo’s Supramental Evolutionary theory doesn’t do justice to the treatment of the subject. Transformation through Knowledge has also a bearing on our bodily existence and the hope of surmounting Death. Regrettably, such profound applications of Philosophy is being downplayed by current commentators. [TNM55]
Sri Aurobindo, in SAVITRI, confronts the ultimate human question of Death and explores ways and means to surmount it. http://t.co/5aLgfmMFiw
@kshetragnya @Mahaakaala001 @AgentSaffron Also, there's no reason to believe that Buddha existed.
No dearth of scholarly articles and books on Sri Aurobindo but the challenge is how to wean the youth away from Current Affairs & Mythology.
Children learn from the TV & their friends
Adventure, Cricket, and sundry tales
Who'd tell of Adventure of Consciousness
Than Sri Aurobindo?
Economy, Politics, and Foreign Policy
All grist for the Twitter mill
Sri Aurobindo foregrounds the unfathomable
Buried in the Vedic deities.
Tweeting is part activism & part entertainment
Direction is far more important than Content
No other way than Sri Aurobindo at the moment.
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have laid the foundation for a perfect and harmonious human society the faint contours of which must be our focus.
In Sri Aurobindo, India has a formidable thinker to guide it beyond the Hindutva, Nehruvian, or Marxist worldview that have pervaded so far.
All Life is Yoga is alright, but learn the right perspective on various political and sociological dimensions in the light of Sri Aurobindo.
The intellectual and political correctives Sri Aurobindo provides is missed by the youth due to the Ashram's emphasis on Yoga & Spirituality.
Sri Aurobindo prepares us to shed fond hopes and pet ideas when need be. India can't progress into the future with Mythology as the vehicle.
Continued neglect of Sri Aurobindo by RW organs like @SwarajyaMag exposes their intellectual bankruptcy, myopic ontology, & shallow notions.
Indian Renaissance encompasses numerous voices drawing inspiration from Comte, Mill, and Mazzini but Sri Aurobindo brings its culmination.
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo strived to build highways to the future and, hence, harking back to ancient Philosophy or Mythology is redundant.
Issues like conversion or immigration will not evaporate but Sri Aurobindo's World Union provides a plan-view of the future as a reference.
As many economic operations are international & are crucial for human welfare, Sri Aurobindo's call for World Union is the logical outcome.
It seems that neither Congress nor RSS can be wished away; even AAP is showing no sign of vanishing. Let's hope people turn to Sri Aurobindo.
The Judeo-Vedic synergy fermented by The Mother & Sri Aurobindo forms the inner core for transformation of the whole humanity into Harmony.
Now that signs of ideological vacillation is visible within ruling dispensation Sri Aurobindo's epochal utterances will stand in good stead.
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo built the Ashram in Pondicherry and Auroville to experiment harmonious living on beyond mere economic principles.
International realignments will be through ideology for which The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have laid firm foundations through Judeo-Vedic tie.
Colonialism needn't blind us to the brighter side of the West of which the Indian Constitution is a direct descendant. Sri Aurobindo guides.
Sri Aurobindo's Integral vision far supercedes that of Gandhi, Tagore, and Vivekananda, or for that matter, of Bankim, Tilak, and Dayananda.
Sri Aurobindo's #FiveDreams Manifesto broadcast on August 14, 1947 forms the bedrock of future Evolution in India as well as the World.
Unless you differentiate between Vivekananda and Sri Aurobindo so as to respect Quality any talk of RW intellectual ecosystem is infructuous.
@nupur1210 @ThinkersPad Read from page 101 or 361 as they are earlier and relatively easier commentaries. Isha Upanishad by Sri Aurobindo
Traditional Indian Philosophy fetches bread and butter for many scholars and academicians and so they are averse to entertain Sri Aurobindo.
Sri Aurobindo echoes Vico, Herder, & Hegel while formulating a unique teleological account of History & Evolution defying Indian tradition.
Gita, Upanishads, or Veda mean nothing if not accompanied by Sri Aurobindo's commentaries. Indians are yet to understand this simple truth.
The path of Sri Aurobindo is truly Integral since it encompasses Psychology and Philosophy, Poetry and Politics, Education and Literature.
Sri Aurobindo phobia is the hallmark of our born-again right-wing theoreticians-rhetoricians. Surely a sad spectacle! http://t.co/wmr1baHejt
The Life Divine by Sri Aurobindo forces to think in terms of Human race & not past Empires, present Nationalities, or future Economic blocks.
Many assume that Development is not dependent upon Philosophy or Ethics but an intellectual conviction is at the base of any human progress.
Sri Aurobindo established new benchmarks in Philosophy but most Indians are still under the spell of Mythology without any quest for Quality.
Savitri Era of those who adore, Om Sri Aurobindo & The Mother
Sri Aurobindo decodes Vedic utterances to add coherence http://t.co/1mGHlyh2U4
Nitish Kumar lacks an all India vote base but compared to Modi and Kejriwal, he still remains the best bet as a PM candidate symbolizing JP.
Bypolls have proved the shaky hold of Modi regime and by projecting a Central leader like Nitish Kumar, a credible alternative can be built.
Congress, AAP, and the Left must accept the supremacy of Nitish Kumar and declare him as the next PM candidate. Other Parties would follow.
October 30, 2013 Delhi Convention didn't yield much result due to leadership tussle. Nitish Kumar's deft move in Bihar has startled all now.
