Savitri Era Party is an amalgamation of politics, culture, and religion

Savitri Era Party is an amalgamation of politics, culture, and religion inspired by the life and work of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo. Savitri and The life Divine are our scriptures while The Human Cycle and The Ideal of Human Unity offer guidelines on practical aspects of life.

Having reposed our faith in the divine manifestation of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo we are not connected with other religions and their rituals. We selectively read the texts of other religions and derive inspiration from them, but they are not binding upon us. The party seeks to encourage people to read and discuss the writings of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo so that a new political culture takes root. [TNM]

  1. Tusarji, I feel you have admirably stated what a party working for the future should have as ideals & anchors. Religion, culture & politics are essential components for effectuating any national resurgence, but they acquire an altogether new dimension when penetrated with the synthetic & evolutive vision of Sri Aurobindo & The Mother & thus develop the capacity of bringing about radical changes. A new political culture must be completely free of old ties, old thoughts, old bindings & old views & divisive tendencies, it has to derive its energies from the fresh air of new thought & vision & as we realise it is The Master & The Mother who provide that. I wholly agree with you on the scriptures of the new age & the idea of The Human Cycle & IHU being the instruments for practical guidelines, in fact the latters are blue prints to a future world order & i believe it is India's destiny to bring that about. As to the inspiration from other texts they ought to be accepted as long as they are positive & evolving & give a direction towards a future harmonious order of things & existence. Any new movement in the light of Sri Aurobindo & The Mother can have no past/present bindings of the old order, therefore i feel you are right when you point out that we are not bound by any scripture, any text, any religion but are bound completely & integrally to the vision of our Master & The Mother & in that light we strive for a new political culture & eventual systemic change.
