Remember Sri Aurobindo on December 5

Story of the West between Ludwig Feuerbach (1804–1872) and Jean Gebser (1905–1973) can be considered as the most crucial vis-à-vis Evolution
From Raja Ram Mohan Roy (1772–1833) to Sri Aurobindo (1872–1950) and Mirra Alfassa (1878–1973) is an interesting parallel in Indian context.
Born on August 15, 1872 in Kolkata, Sri Aurobindo breathed his last in Puducherry on December 5, 1950. Remember him!
The life of Sri Aurobindo is a burning example of how he relied upon superior inspiration in all his actions & same is the case with Mother.
Remembering The Mother & Sri Aurobindo is a dependable way of turning attempts at reform and finding solutions traversing the correct track.
Planning and designing are essential to succeed in any project but remembering The Mother & Sri Aurobindo secures an Evolutionary certainty.
Remembering The Mother & Sri Aurobindo ensures channelising of energy in the positive direction sans hatred, antipathy, rancour or acrimony.
Adopting a questionable means might be tempting at times but remembering The Mother & Sri Aurobindo procures riding on the keel of morality.
Proceeding rationally and applying prudence aim at excellence but remembering The Mother & Sri Aurobindo animate speculation into intuition.
Nothing more worthwhile than understanding how one functions but that is inextricably linked to the cosmic framework Sri Aurobindo unravels.
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo are firm that feelings of goodwill & benevolence hold as much power as material offering.
The RSS understands the power of the crowd and derives legitimacy by lending solidarity, be it religious, political, or moments of calamity.
In the Hindu Rashtra, RSS is always in power; no competitions. So, when BJP captures power at the Centre, it feels as a setback for the RSS.
The RSS draws its inspiration from 20th century theories but seeks to establish its ideal society as supposedly existed in 20th century BCE.
Myriad organisations are connected with RSS but most avoid promising excellence or firm commitments. Then, no accountability & transparency.
Even Elst keeps on complaining about its anti-intellectual ethos But no reaction or remedial action on behalf of RSS.
@vamsi_praneeth Alternative perspectives regarding RSS: Helps to know what others think.
@vamsi_praneeth 1) Seeking truth is a personal responsibility beyond any uncle's influence, 2) Philanthropy is no validation of philosophy.
BJP has such a large support base but it's surprising that its intellectuals have such low count of followers!
