Sri Aurobindo reinstates the Veda, dethrones Mythology

Children who have taken birth just now have the right to education and information but no surety whether they receive the right education.
State sponsored education and culture in India valorizes Mythology, Astrology, & Rituals which corrupt originality & creativity in children.
Children must be set free from parental insistence of undergoing Rituals and Superstition in the name of religious and cultural refinement.
Both Hindutva and Marxist take on the role of religion in education is defective. Integral education of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo right way.
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have inaugurated a new political vision and a new learning formulation which dovetail to an emancipatory religion.
February is the month of The Mother's birthday and her devotees worldwide must stretch their SM reach so that people know who She really is.
She is the Empress of the Universe and also the most kind and caring Mother of such puny existences like us. February 21 is her birthday.
The whole world is out there waiting to be conquered by the Savitri Erans. No more hidings and hibernations. This is the hour to be heroic.
So, there is need to be aware on the basics and develop necessary logic to take on Sri Aurobindo's opposition. https://t.co/CPx7ikYKwe

India got freedom in 1947. All those who are 47 and above should avail some form of sabbatical in order to discover the real taste of life.
Life must be distinguished from mere earning livelihood. Finding out the meaning of life and pursuing its aim needs to be accorded priority.
Difficult to find anything to read that's someone's thought or opinion. Most writings are party propaganda or pamphlets of business houses.
Two most astonishing phenomena of 21st century India is that some people still put their faith in Sonia and some others are under Modi spell.
The nation can find its feet only if its people are able to know about Sri Aurobindo and his emancipating vision of the future Evolution.
@AgentSaffron @bharatipura Anticipating NITI Ayog can be seen as its most historical relevance and in the genealogy of ideas & institutions.

History writing on 20th century in India must undergo a churning the way view of science went under Popper and Kuhn, Lakatos and Feyerabend.
Banishing Veda from Prasthanatraya, aggressive push of Mythology during Bhakti movement, & distortion of history by Marxists are three stabs.
Sri Aurobindo reinstates the Veda, dethrones Mythology, and creates history the accounts and significances of which are yet to be recorded.
Expressing new truths would also involve large dollops of humility as to possible methodological lapses or eclipsing of relevant narratives.
Success rate of art and commercial cinema is also a good yardstick for measuring significance of philosophy vis-à-vis political ratification.

@dikgaj All that will take time. You are on a great project. The whole 20th century will be reevaluated. So, please be patient and humble.
@dikgaj But, there is no gainsaying that the activism, occasional shrill tone and terse remarks of S & SS stick to the Scholars' persona!
@dikgaj So on the whole your task amounts to reconstruction which would need visual presentation through various art forms. Words not enough.
From Subhas to Sri Sri, RWs need to institute an hierarchy of Messiahs so that all are accommodated with due honours like the Padma awards!
Rajeev, with his No Messiah formula, fell in the Leftists' trap. Peter Heehs too had attempted to dislodge Sri Aurobindo from his pedestal.
RW giants fighting over Bose has a huge silver lining. Sri Aurobindo can't be ignored or downplayed any further as SS was doing disdainfully.
The Mother's arrival in India in 1914 is the most significant event in history and subsequent unfoldments need to be understood accordingly.
Examining history in terms of Hindu interest is a hazardous enterprise. How The Mother & Sri Aurobindo fought Hitler is the real mythology.
RW internecine warfare will escalate as SM will force transparency and truth. The Hindu cause will take a beating and The Mother will shine.

Anti-Evolutionary forces are gaining momentum in the country

It's heartening that a good number of The Mother's devotees are active now in the social media. Most of them are well read and display appreciable grasp on current affairs. But when it comes to grappling with political issues, they are found wanting. So, there is need to be aware on the basics and develop necessary logic to take on Sri Aurobindo's opposition.

The Mother & Sri Aurobindo worked for World Union and eschewed all kinds of parochialism and sectarianism. They were even willing to welcome different British initiatives in order to fight fascist threats. That line of action is relevant even today as anti-Evolutionary forces are gaining momentum in the country in various guises. It's hoped that more and more people will show intellectual maturity to support Savitri Era Party in consolidating its ideology and appeal. [TNM55]

Sixty years of Supramental Descent

Although Sri Aurobindo avers that the world is real, apprehending it any coherently is not easy, especially under the postmodernist lens. The motivation behind individual action, therefore, is forever shrouded by the enigma of whether planned or as play (alluded to, in the baby monkey vs. baby cat divergent ways). A further dilemma enters with the notion of “No action is also action.” However, the only fact that emerges from all this is that there is no clear cut solution. So, the commonsense view of the world makes perfect sense; just with the rider that things are either predetermined or being designed on an ongoing basis in which one has hardly any hand. That's quite a sobering thought when we are observing sixty years of the Supramental Descent. [TNM55]

Yes, this business about the world/creation being an ‘illusion’ confused me for a long time. Everything l read seemed to be saying this. It was only When I read Sri Aurobindo [Letters on Yoga, I think] saying that the world is NOT an illusion, only the WAY WE SEE IT is an illusion. This totally cleared up my confusion – the way SA said the Divine is everything, so everything is Divinely REAL. Only, until we see the Divine in all things we are not seeing the whole Reality, just a small part of it – the surface reflection, If you will, but even so, everything in the creation IS a REAL manifestation of the Divine. At least I think that’s what SA meant. 

Good enough, but if you are not going to rely on people’s character, pray do tell, how will institutions or structures help. After all they are staffed by people themselves. Incentives are not a cure either, it is a tool, and as with any tool, it will be used as per the whims and fancies of the ‘people’. Example: witness the role played by incentives in the global economic crisis of 2008.
Obviously, this argument fails, if Skynet is up and running; but then we might run into a case of ‘benevolent dictatorship’. However much we might dislike it, and whatever we do, virtues and morals and ethics and yes character are the things which ensure the continued existence of justice, equality and freedom.

Feb 13, 2011 - Lakatos adopted a view of science that is somewhere in between that of Popper and Kuhn. The Austrian philosopher Paul Feyerabend also studied under Popper, but adopted a very different position to that of Lakatos. Starting with Kuhn’s view that paradigm shifts do not occur on the basis of reason alone, Feyerabend went on to develop what is known as an anarchistic philosophy of science. Feyerabend was heavily influenced by the counter-culture movements of the 1960s. The central themes of his philosophy of science can be found in his seminal work Against Method.

4. Arendt's Conception of Modernity (SEP)
In her major philosophical work, The Human Condition, and in some of the essays collected in Between Past and Future, Arendt articulated a fairly negative conception of modernity. In these writings Arendt is primarily concerned with the losses incurred as a result of the eclipse of tradition, religion, and authority, but she offers a number of illuminating suggestions with respect to the resources that the modern age can still provide to address questions of meaning, identity, and value.

A new Religion and a Party centred around Sri Aurobindo

Savitri Era Party ‏@SavitriEraParty
I am promoting and campaigning for Savitri Era Religion and Savitri Era Party over the Internet, for the last several years.
Most political parties in India are running on religious mode of adherence and hence a party around Sri Aurobindo will have to embrace the same.
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have prepared perfect models of living together in a miniature format which need to be applied in larger habitats.
Hindutva enthusiasts don't realise it fully at the moment but The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have radically changed the religion scene in India.
@avenger_D It's not a Hindu vs. Muslim affair as you/your friends look at it. It's emergence of a new religion centred around Sri Aurobindo.
@avenger_D At least that utopia gives us a chance to escape Mythology, Astrology, and Rituals with which Hinduism is fatally infected with.
@avenger_D Go, sleep.
The Twitter (140 characters), of course, is more popular now which can be compared to Haiku (17 syllables). [TNM55] http://tusarnmohapatra.blogspot.in/2011/07/i-dont-subscribe-to-mythological.html 
Sri Aurobindo is not only a gateway to one's inner universe but also a window to the wonder world of Western philosophy and political theory.
Be it Schelling, Whitehead, Deleuze or Scheler, Levinas, Habermas; Sri Aurobindo steals a march on all fronts of human concern & aspiration.
Perfection & Harmony, both at the personal & community level, is the goal which The Mother & Sri Aurobindo probe through poetry & philosophy.
Literature valorizes emotions and politics aims at ethics. Philosophy on the other hand refuses to sit quiet & explores future possibilities.
The past education has shaped you and that shouldn't put a limit. Acquaintance with Sri Aurobindo can whisk you away from the present orbit.
Really strange that people are willing to talk about everyone except Sri Aurobindo as if his contributions are negligible or of no import.
Policies of certain people has failed India; yet we go on discussing them and analyse their legacies instead of focusing on future Evolution.
Gandhi's statesmanship qualities seem to far surpass the patriotic heroism of the Revolutionaries. https://t.co/BSck3bCxzq @RajeevSrinivasa

Savitri Erans are a privileged few

Friday, November 24, 2006

Beyond dating the dates

It is a blunder to bind the divine manifestation of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo within any allegorical, historical, or metaphysical context. For the Savitri Erans they are one and the supreme, and a commensurate cosmology must be imagined transcending the traditional interpretations of texts and conventional explanations of even what is written by them. A facile acceptance of the enumeration of their progressive realizations forming a coherent narrative is also myopic. Such an attitude may be important and essential for the scholar and the social scientist, but the devotee is under no comparable compulsion.

Fixed religious notions, and a particular religion at that, can at times be a barrier to perceiving superior knowledge. Both the letter and the spirit can prove to be quicksand. A radical shift in our worldview, therefore, is the need of the hour.

Let fictional flowers bloom

Apropos of the imaginary missive from Milton Friedman to our PM by Jerry Rao carried by Indian Express today, one recalls the fictional dialogues of Sri Aurobindo for children that Nirodbaran used to write a decade ago or so. Though it did seem a bit blasphemous at that time to puritanical sentiments, similar creative endeavours are likely to multiply in the days to come so as to prepare an enriched field for enhanced understanding of the mystery of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo's divine manifestation. Of course, the difficulty of shifting the actual from the imaginary would be ever greater; but then the chroniclers, too, will multiply so also the memorizing power of silicon chips.
By the way, the article, Integral Spirituality - Exploring the Connection of the Sages Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi and Sri Aurobindo by Charles Ismael Flores "includes an imaginary interview in which the author compares, based on published quotes from Ramana Maharshi and Sri Aurobindo, what each of them might say to questions posed by a spiritual Seeker who is learning about the Indian tradition of Kevalya Advaita and Integral (Purna) Yoga. The article sheds light on the distinctly different spiritual approaches of these two masters."

Withdraw the book

Dr. Syama Prasad Mookerjee "a pure and manly life" — Manoj Das Gupta Publisher: New House, Kolkata Pages: 63 Price: Rs 50. SABDA – Distributors of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram Publications
One fails to understand how it is appropriate for a high-up of the Ashram to author a book on the founder-President of the Bhartiya Jana Sangh, a party which in its present incarnation as BJP has wrought havoc with the psyche of the country in the past two decades. It is now clear that many are harbouring soft corner for BJP and the kind of its politics and this publication, in a subtle way, is a legitimization of such affiliation. The sexist epithet, ‘Manly’ in the title of the booklet itself speaks volumes.

Ashram authorities are not free-lancers and the attempt to appropriate the legacy of Sri Aurobindo by the Hindu religion and ideology has to be resisted. Constant vigilance is needed for any let up in the matter will have far reaching consequences. It is hoped that Shri Das Gupta will withdraw the book from circulation and have his reputation unsullied.

Instead of talking about far-off eventualities

Tusar N. Mohapatra said... The divine manifestation of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo has manifold ramifications that are difficult to compile. It is, therefore, unfair to summarize them all in one or two phrases.
Instead of talking about far-off eventualities in abstract fashion, more accessible innovations brought about by them can be practiced to enrich our day to day life. Like, Poetry and his new theory of Aesthetics, Human Unity and World Union, Historiography and the Vedic Hermeneutics, Science of living and Integral education, etc. 5:47 AM

Following on RC's posting of the two articles by Arthur Kroker - on the Processed World of Marshall McLuhan and the '>Techno-Puritanism of American destining (Born Again Ideology) and reflecting on RC's own commentary on the issue regarding technology and the post-human future, here is my first attempt at exploring some of the parameters of the question while seeking for answers and drawing out the larger peripheries before closing in/opening out on/to Sri Aurobindo as the prophet of the Life Divine as a post-technologial/post-human future.
Techno-Capitalism and Post-Human Destinies - II by Debashish on December 4, 2006 08:16PM (PST) This is a fragment constituting a continuation of Debashish Banerji's reflections on Techno-Capitalism as the epistemic regime of modernity and posible post-human futures at the eschatological cusp of history. Here the alignment of Marx and Hegel with the Enlightenment vision/teleology is contemplated and questions asked regarding a comparative alignment with the Neo-Vedantic teleology (if it can be called that) of Sri Aurobindo. more » Leave Comment Permanent Link
It is satisfying to see that Debashish Banerji of SCIY has taken upon himself the challenge of explicating the temporalization of the Sri Aurobindian vision by integrating various strands of human thought while interrogating the prevailing hegemony of technology. One wishes that the delineations swell to a full-length book so as to be read as a sequel to works such as Sri Aurobindo and Karl Marx by D. P. Chattopadhyaya andPatterns of the Present by Georges Van Vrekhem.

Now that the exclusive-reign of the Ashram-generated media is a thing of the past, it is heartening to see the brave new world of imagination and interpretation as against the erstwhile disciplesque puritanism. For, the import of the words of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo must permeate every feasible crevice and cranny of the civilization and it is absurd to expect to see any noticeable impact of their vision without carrying them to the last mile.

While we celebrate this new found freedom on this sacred day, a prayer wells up out of a sense of trepidation not to get derailed from the perennial aspiration for purity, perfection and harmony.

He earns this distinction on merit

Tusar N Mohapatra said... I can’t comment about spiritual realizations or experiences, but as far as an explanation of this creation and cosmos (i.e. metaphysics/ontology) is concerned, Sri Aurobindo, in his The Life Divine, has written the most coherent one. No one before or after him has surpassed that comprehensiveness.
At least in this respect he ranks at the top. If we concede this much to Sri Aurobindo, it would be a great gain. He earns this distinction on merit and let the whole world know this bare fact very clearly. 7:00 AM

Destiny of an organization

Tusar N. Mohapatra Says: December 7th, 2006 at 11:21 pm Not only has an organization an agency or a soul but also a destiny, pre-designed, if you like. Sri Aurobindo has discussed at length about the group-soul of a nation in his classic, The Human Cycle. The same applies to the evolution of an organization as well.
Tusar N. Mohapatra Says: December 8th, 2006 at 11:07 pm Daffodils are as much divine as the dredgers and the Infinite is under no compulsion to stop imagining and staying outside the walls of WalMart. Proof, like beauty, lies in the eyes of the beholder and all epistemological rigours, therefore, need to be tempered by suitable hermeneutical hormones so that a new aesthetic is perceived. In this subjective adventure we are all loners and have to plough our own furrows. 11:38 AM

Navajyoti completes its 49th year

Navajyoti edited by Biswambhara Samanta and published by Navajyoti Publication, Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry has completed its 49th year of uninterrupted publication. Founded by Shri Prapatti under the inspiration of Shri Ramakrishna Das, this quarterly in Oriya is witness and instrumental to an unprecedented spiritual efflorescence in Orissa in the last half-century.

Of course, the popular appeal of its younger sibling Navaprakash, a monthly, is far higher; but the pioneering role of Navajyoti in carrying the message of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo from distant Puducherry to remote corners of Orissa has few parallels. Reading of Murari Pukur in the rural environs of Sailo Jharpara appears to be a miracle even today.

Bechara Anderson

Years ago, Sri Aurobindo famously made pulp of one Archer and, of course, made him immortal in the process. Subsequently, many have succumbed to the Archery from seasoned hands of Kapali Sastry, Amal Kiran et al.
And poor Daniel Gustav Anderson, now. A scholar should be worth his salt, for the days are gone when people with Western names could get away with by writing any trash. Else, stay prepared to suffer Archery. Call it reverse colonialism or reverse racialism. Sumptuous entertainment for the Savitri Erans, in any case.

Esoteric and the academic

Prema Nandakumar once wrote, “Himself a scholar, he enthuses us to take to a life of scholarship” apropos Sri Aurobindo. The two score heavy volumes of his collected works are a testimony to the imbrications of esoteric with the academic. Sri Aurobindo, evidently, maintains a Miltonic stance in Savitri and a Hegelian in The Life Divine. These are perhaps the standards to be respected and preserved rather than being questioned or tinkered with.

The works of Nolini-Purani-Amrita-Pavitra, Anil-Amal-Nirod-Dilip, Rishabh-Chandra-Kapali-Madhav and Sisir-Indra-Madhu-Kishor among others constitute an immense quantity of authentic explication of the vision of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo. These have also created an elaborate as well as elastic system of syntax and semantics for the posterity. Not to be intimidated by the tyranny of the present is the key, else one land at the jargonificationalization of say, Roy Bhaskar or the paradoxicatorising of the likes of Jean Baudrillard.

Would have retired from PNB today

Would have retired from PNB today but Google & Twitter helped to build an alternative identity during the last ten years which keeps growing.
Came in touch of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo in 1964 and there is no greater sense of fulfilment today than being able to spread their words.
Strayed into Western Philosophy through Sri Aurobindo without which my understanding of life and society would have been naïve and juvenile.
@avenger_D It would be more profitable if you examine the whole issue in detail & tell what your conclusions entail. https://larvalsubjects.wordpress.com/2016/01/24/reflections-on-philosophical-methodology/
@avenger_D Each one is free to draw his own conclusions based on what The Mother and Sri Aurobindo wrote and the way they ran their Ashram in Puducherry.
@avenger_D I try to understand what The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have said and believe in them. Rest are texts, legends, and sundry opinions.
Political relevance of Sri Aurobindo is my strongest conviction today but how that takes on rival ideologies and wins depends on public inclination.
Most go for the easy option of supporting an existing party but the truth is that an ideal party has to be built brick by brick by idealists.
Four years on Twitter convinces me that there is an absolute need for independent thinking beyond propaganda unleashed by parties and media.
Apart from BJP, I'm also opposed to Congress, AAP, the Left, and many other regional parties but extend support on the basis of lesser evil.
When I oppose Modi, RSS, or Hindutva, it's out of my personal preference and judgement and not any direct communication from Sri Aurobindo.
Instead of quoting what The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have said, I just urge to read. Where and how a new person meets is between him and them.
Accumulating even an iota of appreciation for The Mother & Sri Aurobindo is an Evolution of gigantic proportion given the normal life around.
Each person is unique in his life's path & goal. How he benefits from The Mother & Sri Aurobindo can't be predicted or evaluated by another.
Writings of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo include diverse possibilities but their followers must refrain from making false promises & forecasts.
The political appropriateness of Sri Aurobindo's thought vis-à-vis Hindutva, Nehruvian, Marxist, and Ambedkarite positions is very clear now.

Many a time, I tweet to defend facts but am accused of "following Sri Aurobindo and feel the need to defend him." https://twitter.com/knowingk2/status/687274073643061248 …
Escaping the spell of Mythology, legends, distorted history, and motivated media campaigns is perhaps the most challenging task for Indians.
Sri Aurobindo's candid views on Gandhi, Subhas, & Hitler should guide the historians so that a lot of myth is excised from school curriculum.
Sri Aurobindo's philosophy must replace faulty ideologies of great men and misleading theories thrust by majoritarian electoral politics.
Lessons on critical irreverence is good to an extent but caution must be exercised against it leading to excessive scepticism and nihilism.
All political parties are selling dreams. Students must be very careful before falling in their traps by reading The Mother & Sri Aurobindo.
You toiled on Twitter and now Modi and his Ministers are enjoying. Time to turn to your own aims as amplified by The Mother & Sri Aurobindo.
Too much of political ideology and sociology can distort life-goals unless life-skills offered by The Mother & Sri Aurobindo are integrated.
@harsh__g Any agenda for future should include insights from Sri Aurobindo which he fine-tuned 100 years back. http://incarnateword.in/cwsa/13/the-aryas-fourth-year
Let not chasing a nebulous dream like Hindu Rashtra lull you from performing the immediate tasks that The Mother & Sri Aurobindo foreground.
No ideal society can be built without enough transformation of human nature for which The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have laid firm foundations.
Reject RSS and BJP, discard Congress, and dump the Left for the anachronistic ideologies they are following. Discover Sri Aurobindo instead.
Many are trying to impress the young generation with the misleading combination of Vivekananda and Sri Aurobindo who are diverging domains.
It is also essential not to identify Sri Aurobindo with any kind of Saffron campaign converging on the Hindu Rashtra http://anti-matters.org/articles/58/public/58-51-1-PB.pdf
Nationalism and heroism can induce disproportionate motivation, especially in women, as the tragic story of Sadhvi Pragya is unfolding now.
Whose ideology serves best for India's future should attract more critical attention than juvenile drum beating about who had wielded a gun.
Freedom struggle encompasses diverse events both recorded and unreported. So, absurd to construct any coherent theory or ideological victory.
RW fascination for whatever semblance of armed resistance against the British is intriguing although Sri Aurobindo never put his whole faith.
Many on the RW faction are extremely enthusiastic about Sri Aurobindo; ironically, just as an icon but not what he writes or how he differs.
Speaking of the Constitution and the Hindu interest in the same breath (as if both are synonymous) is absurd as well as height of hypocrisy.
Nationalist sentiment as a component of Hindutva may look as a valid cause but when endorsed by Brahmins becomes suspicious on past records.
As most people have not read Sri Aurobindo's books they fail to realise his worth. So one has to accept someone's advice to turn towards him.
The responsibility of persuading yourself that the ideology of Sri Aurobindo is the most suitable for the country and the world is upon you.
Sri Aurobindo continues to be neglected during the last 20 months the same way as the previous 20 years. Young Indians must study him self.
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have stressed the universal aspect of man and why our aspirations and endeavours should be in the same direction.
Messianic & Utopian dimensions of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo's teaching notwithstanding, Evolutionary paradigm is intellectually compelling.
Events of the last hundred years prove that the vision of Sri Aurobindo is in the right direction and young Indians must follow #FiveDreams.
No amount of gratitude is enough for Sri Aurobindo writing the ARYA articles 100 years of ago giving a definite direction to human Evolution.
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo prepared the road towards a single global fraternity where people of all nations, races, & religions would mingle.
Sri Aurobindo's political philosophy doesn't pertain to his Freedom Struggle period alone; it has got vast significance for future of India.
Not many of his eminent contemporaries were much impressed with Sri Aurobindo & that speaks of the circumstances of their fast obsolescence.
The most important task in studying history is to understand the role of Sri Aurobindo in trouncing Hitler & how Churchill turns instrument.
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo were prominent among those who raised voice against Hitler. So it's anti-Evolutionary to praise his collaborator.
Sri Aurobindo charts out an Evolutionary path for the whole mankind in accordance with the Vedic dialectic resonating with Lurianic Kabbalah.
Take your pick: Vivekananda doesn't understand the Veda, Subhas allies with Hitler while Savarkar endorses him & Ambedkar opts for Buddhism.
Failure of Hindutva in providing a robust intellectual leadership coupled with feeble crawling of Congress makes Sri Aurobindo most relevant.
Concentrating on the Hindu cause or Hindu unity is clearly a different and minor goal than thinking about India. Sri Aurobindo shows the way.
Electoral politics forces certain rigidities & exclusivities. Sri Aurobindo rises above such narrow confines to push an Evolutionary agenda.
RSS at the helm of the nation is definitely a sad state. Besides the opposition seems powerless against it. Sri Aurobindo is the only answer.
Most Bengali scholars portray Sri Aurobindo as a minor adjunct to Bankim, Vivekananda or Tagore. Now the nation must discover his true worth.
Following The Mother & Sri Aurobindo orients one in Planetary concerns and Evolutionary imperatives vital for World peace and Human unity.
Many followers of Sri Aurobindo are averse to politics but Savitri Era Party is a pioneering venture to serve the cause of the Motherland.
Distorted history has taken its toll on the present generation of Indians. Mythology, Astrology, and Rituals have further debilitated them.
RSS adherents have their own conviction and compulsion but The Mother & Sri Aurobindo posit a much larger vision and schema of Evolution.
Many historians balk at any sign of teleological explanation but seem to be at a loss to account for all unexpected handiworks of Evolution.
Before paid media were paid professors & writers who used to crawl when asked to bend. Plight of intellectuals before patronage is pitiable!
RSS is trying hard to push itself on borrowed curry (Odia proverb) but its ideological bankruptcy will lead it to doom sans Sri Aurobindo.
We witness now how our political parties are floundering due to lack of any cohesive and coherent ideology. Sri Aurobindo, a firm anchorage.
Ignoring merit & disregarding talent is a basic political instinct for self-positioning. Mediocrity prospers as a result midst pedestrianism.
Sri Aurobindo's firm grip on values and vision for future can be traced even in his 1893-94 writings when he was 21. http://incarnateword.in/cwsa/01/our-hope-in-the-future

Constitution of India came into effect on January 26, 1950 and Sri Aurobindo breathed his last on December 5, 1950. http://incarnateword.in/cwsa/13/message
Those keen on delving deep into Indian wisdom must focus on Sri Aurobindo's ARYA (1914-21) writings available online http://incarnateword.in/cwsa/13/the-aryas-second-year

@vhpparekh She never travelled beyond Puducherry and adjoining areas.
@DemocracyParody Sri Aurobindo, in fact, is a timeless & seamless thesis; no real demarcation between his spirituality, philosophy, & politics.
@DemocracyParody Sri Aurobindo has clarified the matter at several places and that should be accepted sans any spin. http://incarnateword.in/cwsa/35/leaving-politics
@DemocracyParody That's well known and from him you acquire the prejudice about Sri Aurobindo's exit from politics which is mistaken.
@DemocracyParody That's an excellent biography by R.R. Diwakar. (Or, you are referring to Karan Singh's dissertation with Nehru's foreword?)
@DemocracyParody 1) I don't agree on Sri Aurobindo = all great people. 2) What you like or not is immaterial; his life is between 1872-1950.
@DemocracyParody Consciousness, in our parlance, is a decent concept. So, it could mean something like the gut feeling (or, reflex action)!
@madversity @DemocracyParody The Mother’s brother safely kept the file in his office drawer.  http://savitriera.blogspot.in/2007/06/refer-to-drawer.html
@Parikramah This for example: https://twitter.com/ProfVarshney/status/692057714315362304
@Parikramah @kartheeque But then, why nationalism at all? Why not try to transcend it? World Union? Legal stipulations, however, will exist.
@Parikramah @kartheeque Geography, anyway, ensures that but with increased migration, it's difficult to maintain/demand cultural purity.
@YRDeshmukh Please try to evaluate Sri Aurobindo on a different scale than his contemporaries given his seclusion and ability of pre-vision.
@ranikhet Please read the tweet again. I don't think you suffer from comprehension problem!
@avenger_D In the meanwhile you can look at some facts https://www.google.co.in/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://anti-matters.org/articles/58/public/58-51-1-PB.pdf&ved=0ahUKEwishIOP1LrKAhVTGY4KHZedAwUQFggfMAI&usg=AFQjCNG8gEgss4In8pw3w0lmcs3xBjNioQ

Best of luck!
@maidros78 I didn't tweet about it but Sri Aurobindo himself claims of Divine intervention for escape which you may or may not treat a proof.
@maidros78 Peter Heehs also offered similar arguments in his biography. But here the specific issue is you prove the allegation or apologise.
The academic environment seeks to stick to the literal approach. The challenge here, on the contrary, is manifold.

Savitri Era Party ‏@SavitriEraParty  19h 19 hours ago It's absurd that for history and sociology in India Mythologies are looked upon as authoritative sources, forgetting their fictional nature.
Savitri Era Party ‏@SavitriEraParty  6h 6 hours ago By reading the works of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo one can gradually extricate oneself from the influence of Mythology, Astrology & Rituals.
Savitri Era Party ‏@SavitriEraParty  6h 6 hours ago The Western world was also under the thrall of Mythology one day but got over it and developed. India, too, can by following Sri Aurobindo.
Savitri Era Party ‏@SavitriEraParty  6h 6 hours ago Young Indians must be ever vigilant not to allow reign of obscurantism & medievalism in the guise of Nationalism by following Sri Aurobindo.
Savitri Era Party ‏@SavitriEraParty  5h 5 hours ago Even Marxists, during their long hold over educational apparatus and national discourse, couldn't eradicate Mythology. Sri Aurobindo will.
Mythology, Astrology, & Rituals are responsible for clouding the minds of Indians so much that they fail to appreciate Sri Aurobindo's works.
Many intellectuals and academicians hesitate to express their admiration for The Mother & Sri Aurobindo in public to avoid sectarian image.
Savitri Era Party ‏@SavitriEraParty  Jan 18 Misrepresentation of Sri Aurobindo by both who have not read him and those who prefer a literal reading of his texts is a fearful prospect.
Shadow of Auroville looms large on the Ashram ownership given Sri Aurobindo's position as an eminent national icon. http://savitriera.blogspot.in/2016/01/hindutva-exercises-weighty-bearing-on.html
