Ken Wilber borrowed from Sri Aurobindo in buckets

Tweets 2 hrs - Savitri Era Party @SavitriEraParty Ken Wilber scoured heaven & earth but finally borrowed from Sri Aurobindo in buckets to spread his spectrum. Human Cycle is such compulsion. 3 hrs Blustering about India leading the world while being tied to hostile forces is anomaly. In The Human Cycle, Sri Aurobindo exposes the folly. 37 mins Sri Aurobindo reaffirms that the future of India is not a speculative game of chess or amenable to manipulative politics. He leads the march. 56 mins Mortgaging intellect & creativity to the pygmy project of being Rajya Sabha MP is the worst kind of betrayal of the country. Truth Triumphs. 1 hr Why Ontology commands the least prestige among the elite today? Because of the notion that Mythology is all. Sri Aurobindo rescues Philosophy. 2 hrs The way Leftist subaltern turn gave a new lease of life to Gutenberg's invention, the Hindutva supraltern twist is grist to the Twitter mill. 5 hrs Religion based nationalism is a regressive intoxicant. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo invoke spirituality oriented human unity to push evolution. 5 hrs The juvenile thrill of proxy-nationalism reinforced by Cricket & Olympics prevents mature citizens' initiative towards World Union & Harmony. 5 hrs Most individuals and institutions in India today lack the intellectual apparatus to imbibe Sri Aurobindo's insights. One century not enough. 5 hrs Western education brought thought fermentation in India & myriad cultural theories began to float. Lastly, Sri Aurobindo cleared the clutter. 10 hrs It might seem an accident but an acutely perceptive person like V.P. Singh becoming the PM is a peak as the avalanche of hostility he faced. 11 hrs Evolution, Sri Aurobindo points out, moves in a spiral path which means the prevailing circumstance may not be the highest achievement so far. 11 hrs Being a prisoner of one's own mental image of a leader is a source of recurrent frustration. Only the Divine surpasses the human expectation. 11 hrs Accepting exceptions & extreme examples as the rule is the most paradoxical situation in life. But that's how one is able to exceed oneself. 12 hrs Wherever one is, to feel & act like a member of an army for Global Harmony is the most challenging task today given the resistance to ideas. Mar 5 Sri Aurobindo’s Integral vision is in sharp contrast to the pessimistic scenario painted by his contemporaries like Spengler and Heidegger. Mar 5 The Mother & Sri Aurobindo paved the way for next evolution. How the people of India align themselves to that would mean a great transition.

13 hrs - Savitri Era Party @SavitriEraParty - @Realist_Indian Opium trade and the dominant role of the Parsees has something to do with disproportionate distribution of entrepreneurship.  View conversation - 21 hrs - @rishabh2020 Who wins the election and comes to power is a different issue but at the ideological level RSS has the most undesirable policy.  View conversation -21 hrs [Vasantasena is a prostitute... prostitutes in the days of yore in India weren't looked down upon.] By Sandeep. B …  - 23 hrs - @SudheenKulkarni All major political parties in India owe their origin to pre-Independence circumstances and issues. A new beginning needed.  View conversation - 23 hrs BJP can't produce a better mascot than ABV who lost in 2004 and Advani bit dust in 2009. Ideology and not oratory can save it from oblivion. 23 hrs With RSS as its albatross, BJP, though the principal opposition party, is clearly ill-suited to stand up to the challenges of 21st century. 24 hrs BJP & its supporters, pitiably, continue to ignore the ground reality and thrive on euphoria like in 2004 and 2009. … … - Mar 5 Anna, Kejriwal & Ramdev are dissapointments but there is wide political space beyond Sonia, BJP~RSS & the Left. Sri Aurobindo shows the way. Mar 4 - @tnk0205 That we have been listening for a long time. But overseas Chinese invest in China while their Indian counterparts just remit money.  View conversation - Mar 4 - @tnk0205 Economics involves history, geography, religion, culture & a host of other factors. So, no point comparing one nation with another. Mar 4 - @tnk0205 development is a slow process and so there is nothing to be pained about. With good understanding of theory, nothing to feel sorry. Mar 4 - @tnk0205 But they also remit money, invest in Indian stocks, donate to Indian institutions, spend while touring the country & bring friends. Mar 4 - @tnk0205 India is a combination of individuals and when their personal prosperity rises, the prosperity of the country also goes up. Simple.  Mar 4 - @tnk0205 No one sends; the individual exercises his freedom to move wherever he likes, whenever he decides. Liberty is the key to prosperity. Mar 4 - @tnk0205 There is no need to agree immediately but do insist on reading more by maintaining a learner's attitude. Cf. - Mar 4 - @tnk0205 Not exactly since remittance in foreign currency is the mainstay of our economic buoyancy. Punjab and Kerala are primary examples. Mar 4 - @tnk0205 Progress and prosperity are not one way traffic. Without NRIs the present level of affluence in India would have been unthinkable. Mar 4 - @tnk0205 Freedom and Harmony are the twin guiding principles driving the human civilization in the path of evolution towards its perfection. Mar 4 Even "strife and opposition," says Sri Aurobindo in The Human Cycle, "is a help towards the divine purpose" (CWSA.25.65) and so is no thwart. Mar 4 If an invitation makes some disproportionately happy then they are bound to be equally sad at its withdrawal. Yogic equanimity is the answer. Mar 4 - @atanudey Indian professors & students going to US is no shame. Human unity and harmony demands exchange of knowledge & ideas among nations.  View conversation - Mar 4 Relying upon some stray quote to build a sound economic scenario is therefore anomalous [TNM55] @rvaidya2000 - #5Dreams -  View summary - Mar 4 Sri Aurobindo’s notion of human unity doesn’t envisage any antagonistic prospect between India and Europe. [TNM55] - Mar 3 BJP, RSS, & Sisyphus. Pramod Mahajan, Nitin Gadkari, & Sitaram Kesri. Five Dreams broadcast & Sri Aurobindo's Savitri
