Sri Aurobindo is not wanting in offering theory and guidance
Most of Sri Aurobindo's writings come to us in a much revised and heavily edited form. Matters from different periods are also presented thematically as in the Letters. So, understanding the context before examining any attempt at deconstruction is important. And then, debate on issues raised should be welcome instead of being unduly apprehensive. [TNM55]
Savitri Era Religion drawing inspiration from The Mother & Sri Aurobindo is the religion of the future & has people from all over the world.
Scientific & Sociological studies owe their findings to diverse human behaviour but that they are Ontologically connected is often forgotten.
India is too large for building as many busts or statues and there shouldn't be any objection if public money or property is not involved.
BJP wants Monarchy back and not Parliamentary accountability. RSS runs on that lines the Head of which is no less than Mythological kings.
It's severely damaging to defer splitting of UP into four separate States just because no one is demanding it vociferously at the moment.
The notion that our future should be validated by precedents and tradition is intriguing. Indians must think Innovation and Experimentation.
Sad that Sri Aurobindo Ashram is in news for wrong reasons. Enforcing election of a fixed tenure based Head for it is a crying need today.
Some seem to be suggesting that there should be an amendment to the Constitution barring Prime Ministers from speaking in the Parliament!
Hindutva enthusiasts display reasonableness on Twitter at times and that's the silver lining amidst RSS push of medievalism and homogeneity.
Modi has undoubtedly wasted seven precious months. Juvenile showmanship doesn't add to prestige; he must reinvent to retain respect for PM.
BJP is no longer what it used to be under Advani and autocratic functioning will take it in the path of destruction. Caution for supporters!
@Srichand01 You are right but the author is proposing that Gandhi attempted to raise Ahimsa to a creed (instead of say, a liberal Syadvad).
No one expected that the integrity of @SurajitDasgupta would decline to such inane level.
It is sad & unfortunate that since 2011 Indians are being continuously fed with falsehood courtesy Anna Hazare, Kejriwal, Ramdev, and Modi.
@ngc1729 Sri Aurobindo allows to see a problem in relation to multiple issues leading to amelioration of feeling of injury or victim hood.
@ngc1729 Everyone is free but if somebody has certain grounding in Sri Aurobindo's teaching then his worldview would be better. @drsbasu2115
@ngc1729 What is the right course of action is most important to decide and Sri Aurobindo is not wanting in offering theory and guidance.
RSS is fond of spectacles and large scale mobilisation reminiscent of fascist era. Nothing like a nationwide event involving school children.
BJP is targeting schools directly to extend its reach bypassing State Govts. especially those are unfriendly. Turf war to get dirtier ahead.
@Outlookindia Next, the PM will advise erring CMs to observe Rajdharma!
Sri Aurobindo's Third Dream was World Union. The situation in Pakistan is indication enough for formation of a World Govt. on federal basis.
Kant or Coleridge, Nietzsche or Deleuze, in Sri Aurobindo we get exposed to expression of Integral spirit of humanity http://t.co/tWlUlVKjh6
@GreatHeretic Is it compatible with the latest findings of Neuro-
Science etc? How come such an old text has not been superseded?

http://t.co/PjJhLRpEiG This small book of 32 pages is a must read. Read it a couple of pages per day & ponder over it.]
