The Mother's birth anniversary on February 21 is an occasion to remember the contributions of an extraordinary woman who loved India so much.
The Mother asks to concentrate on change of Consciousness rather than concerning ourselves about religious formulas. http://t.co/HDU4DEtWqL
Sri Aurobindo wrote and published almost throughout his life which influenced many, yet some think his political contribution is negligible.
What man must know & think and how he should act are dominant concerns for Sri Aurobindo and not merely his material needs and possessions.
Sri Aurobindo, not only explains The Secret of the Veda, but also tells the truth about following Buddha, Vivekananda, Tagore, or Gandhi.
Neglect of Sri Aurobindo by academia has left a whole generation ignorant about and prejudiced against him. Some day good sense will prevail.
Sri Aurobindo indicates not to stop at Dayananda, Vivekananda, Tagore or Gandhi & follow Integral Yoga based on Evolutionary Vedic dialectic.
Sri Aurobindo awakens us to the superiority of Vedic pronouncements that should form the basis of patriotism and not Mythological narrative.
In Sri Aurobindo we find diverse areas like Philosophy, Psychology, Anthropology, Sociology, Politics, Ethics, Aesthetics, & Yoga converging.
When the whole nation is debating a suit, let's recall how Sri Aurobindo refutes Shankara's interpretation of vasyam as cloth to posit house.
Phobia of the West spread in India by Swadeshi as well as anti-Colonialist enthusiasts is sure to have a debilitating effect on the Nation.
Just like Heidegger's Philosophy can't be ignored due to his brief Nazi connection, a Nation's culture and politics must be seen separately.
Just like home grown medicines, ancient & indigenous sources of aesthetic or intellectual enjoyment may not be the best; need replenishment.
Protectionism is as injurious in trade and commerce as in intellectual discourse. Western Philosophy has turned moribund sans Sri Aurobindo.
If widening and heightening of Consciousness is the task, then one must not remain bound by the history and culture of a particular country.
