Sri Aurobindo had the advantage of not dealing with his own theory as a new category

@SavitriEraParty: Sri Aurobindo had the advantage of not dealing with his own theory as a new religious or political category which we are forced to do today.
@SavitriEraParty: Lack of popularity, no doubt, is a severe disability for Sri Aurobindo's teaching but by no means for its worth or relevance for the future.
@SavitriEraParty: Negligible success both on the spirituality & philosophy front after 63 years of Sri Aurobindo's departure forces us to be humble on claims.
@SavitriEraParty: Dissonance between theoretical formulations and actual performance by people or organizations associated with Sri Aurobindo bogs scrutiny.
@SavitriEraParty: Though seeming elitist or abstract The Mother & Sri Aurobindo actually strike at the most pertinent & intricate problems of human existence.
@SavitriEraParty: Ethical licence is implicit in Monarchy and as a legacy political parties do condone moral transgressions in Democracy. AAP has come of age!
@SavitriEraParty: India is doomed until intellectuals need to be told about the importance of Sri Aurobindo's writings which they fail to notice on their own.
@SavitriEraParty: Sri Aurobindo resisted bolstering the Nazi forces and despite all his patriotism, Netaji fails the test of aligning with Evolutionary arrow.
@SavitriEraParty: Uncritical extolling of historical personages is fraught with risk and The Mother & Sri Aurobindo offer a safe guide
@SavitriEraParty: Leftist atheism, Nehruvian secularism, and RSS obscurantism are hurdles for full blossoming of Indian nationhood that Sri Aurobindo insists.
@SavitriEraParty: Sri Aurobindo understands the ontological worth of religion for future Evolution of man and neither RSS-BJP nor AAP.
@SavitriEraParty: TOI edit is spot on on electoral arithmetic but forgets about the deeper issue of place of religion in nation-building which BJP-RSS stress.
@SavitriEraParty: More than any particular religion or geographical territory Sri Aurobindo is concerned about the future man, his destiny & moulding society.
@SavitriEraParty: Like many choosing a school or hospital by building-size and not by teachers or doctors, RSS valorized tradition by ignoring Sri Aurobindo.
@SavitriEraParty: RSS itself denotes an abstract form of Hinduism but is victim of supporting contradictions accumulated over the period of last 60 centuries.
@SavitriEraParty: Perceptions on its performance notwithstanding the theoretical stance of RSS on religions is accommodative & informed by a fraternal spirit.
@SavitriEraParty: Is this the sign of Indian culture and Hindu pride? Not a single person can stand up and say that Modi cannot win 272 and won't become PM?

Demarcation between philosophy proper and history of Indian philosophy has been deep since the arrival of Sri Aurobindo in the scene. This year marks the Centenary of his magnum opus “The Life Divine” and other original works like “The Secret of the Veda.” The Evolutionary dialectic of his Integral Ontology seeks to establish a universal template of philosophy that acts as applied psychology as well by suitably incorporating poetic aesthesis. So, not to include him in the list would be an injustice to the future of human civilization and education. [TNM55]
