Gita is a covert means for Mythology
Defending your religion without understanding the essence of it or knowing its malaise is juvenile. Sri Aurobindo endows the power to probe.
Gita is a covert means for spreading Mythology. Rationality demands that Sri Aurobindo's symbolic interpretation of the Veda is followed.
Without understanding the significance of the ancient texts many make the empty claim that the Gita is the essence of Vedas and Upanishads.
Prejudice is part of one's past but wrestling with Sri Aurobindo is one wonderful opportunity to look at the world afresh. @sarkar_swati
Life, History, and Evolution are so entrenched in the writings of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo that no serious researcher can afford to ignore.
@sarkar_swati Please look at people and events in history through the prism of Sri Aurobindo's viewpoint for more accurate dissemination.
Since general tourism is tied mostly to monuments, Indian mind tends to travel backwards instead of thinking in Futuristic terms & Evolution.
Whenever a Hindutva fellow contemplates something that would bind the nation together, it really means dividing the people by sowing hatred.
Shourie, Malhotra, or Akbar - if one has no hesitation in endorsing a person like Modi at the top then public esteem automatically plummets.
Bypassing Advani has proved to be a Himalayan blunder for the Hindutva movement which has now become a prisoner of international syndicates.
The Adani connection is conveniently overlooked by those who go ballistic over Shourie softcorner for Shekhar Gupta. Such moral high ground!
The same forces who unleashed 26/11 are now controlling Delhi through myriad strings and the public is in dark due to lack of transparency.
Judging Indians through Hindu prism is the greatest folly RSS is busy with to delude its supporters knowing fully well that it's a chimera.
As regards rituals sanctioned by scriptures: [Circular reasoning is of the form: "A is true because B is true; B is true because A is true"]
Let not youthful enthusiasm goad you to support group actions that are ethically abhorrent, no matter how much justified they appear to be.
RW-wallahs pick up issues from pre-Independence period to stoke conflicts which is intellectually dishonest & denotes disrespect for others.
RW worthies certify each other as great intellects and formidable thinkers but ask them about Sri Aurobindo's thought, they draw a blank!
Hindutva know-alls on Twitter are so fearful of Sri Aurobindo that they invariably eclipse references to him whether laudatory or critical.
Religion and Culture are always at war with rivals and do fail like bad brands competing in the Market. Sri Aurobindo is key to stay afloat.
@CatchHRah You may be right but since Ashram publications state "The Mother" as the author, no one else or no other name can own copyright.
Ontology, and not Mythology or Religion, is key to human emancipation and hence The Mother & Sri Aurobindo hold the helm of future Evolution.
Reading Sri Aurobindo's Letters & Conversations awakens to the fact that defending present state of dominant religions is anti-Evolutionary.
@Hitarth1987 The spirited attempt can really boast of substance if Sri Aurobindo's insights can be imbibed showing Evolutionary direction.
Think Civilisation, it's Sri Aurobindo; think Evolution, it's Sri Aurobindo. Be it Religion or Politics there's no escape from Sri Aurobindo.
@the_hindu Away from the MSM glare, the narrative Sri Aurobindo inaugurated in 1914 is slowly occupying the arena as a viable alternative.
Instead of discussing the Philosophy of Sri Aurobindo and its superiority, many are just content in remembering a few incidents of his life.
Left or Right, Centre or Subaltern; Sri Aurobindo is the most sought after voice to cut through theoretical confusion http://t.co/XiC5r3DFQH
@ariannahuff @HuffPostIndia Fair to begin with Gandhi but the Indian adventure of consciousness is understanding Sri Aurobindo's Evolution.
