If you are not studying Sri Aurobindo, then you are missing a lot

The Mother and Sri Aurobindo have chosen India. The 101 years of their presence from 1872 to 1973 is a sort of time-capsule that will reign the ages ahead. They have set forth an agenda which is too futuristic but the world must learn to follow it.

India and its identity has been drastically remolded by the teachings of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo. Those who are averse to it and are avoiding the new vistas that the writings of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo open, are, obviously, at the Windows 95 stage.

The Veda, the Upanishads, and the Gita are attracting the attention of younger generation. But, if the teachers are not conversant with the epochal interpretations that Sri Aurobindo has brought in, then they, definitely, are doing a disservice to their students.

Be it poetry or philosophy, physics or politics, no department of study can progress in any meaningful way without incorporating the insights of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo. But there is resistance - formidable resistance - from the inertians. Savitri Erans must brace for an aggressive showdown with them. [TNM]

  1. You are just at the right point. Those who read Sri Aurobindo and the Mother-their attitude to the world, India and the sacred books take a new turn. Sri Aurobindo and Ma came to build a future that is peeping through us. Only we must be aware of it. The Gita, the Upanishads etc -however great these books are -they can not help the future Sri Aurobindo came to bring in. And the pertinent point is that we will miss the relevance of these books if they are not read in the light of Sri Aurobindo. Without Sri Aurobindo -these books will be serving the usual satisfaction that one can get through religion.
