The Mother and Sri Aurobindo have paved the way for an epochal synthesis

India today is the result of a continuous evolution over 6000 years. Ontological wisdom braided with ethical values have directed the course of life and conflicts upon this vast geographical expanse some of which have since been enshrined in The Directive Principles of State Policy‎ and other provisions of our Constitution adopted 60 years ago.

Never before in the history of the world was India as confident as it is at present. The cultural capital and the soft power that lubricates our hard bargaining in international fora are of immense worth. The whole ethos, like it or not, flows from the Vedas, arguably the most ancient words of wisdom. Many branches of the world civilization are fecund by suckling its insights and discernment.    

India, therefore, can’t take a break from its engrossment with light and knowledge. This is a sure way of insulation from slipping into indulging in the grosser aspects of life, alone. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have paved the way for an epochal synthesis. The one task before us is to ask ourselves periodically: How to be true to The Mother. [TNM]
