Integral Yoga is not a secular exercise and amounts to a new religion by another name. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo spent their lives for it.
Simply put, Sri Aurobindo's reinterpretation of the Veda rejects Mythology and Rituals thus establishing the foundation of a new religion.
Central Govt has become locus for big ticket corruption with sophistication, benefitting a handful. Sovereignty to States will decentralise.
Not only Punjab or Kashmir, each State of India representing the 22 recognised languages and other major dialects must acquire Sovereignty.
Sri Aurobindo's reinterpretation of Veda is proving to be epitome of Consciousness studies as Quantum physics & Neuroscience fail to fathom.
Not to be sucked into group identity and preserving one's independent voice and thinking is essential to give Constitutional values a boost.
Political parties, media houses, career-oriented journalists, and business organisations present twisted view. Vigilance necessary for truth
Despite his blemishes, Churchill is said to be a favourite of Sri Aurobindo as former was instrumental in fighting the greater evil, Hitler.
Would you propose that new nation-States are reorganised around rivers or natural assets and not language, ethnicity, or such human emotion?
Modi came to power with a decisive mandate but the last three years have proved that Democracy and Development are not reaching the people.
Nobel prize is his only ambition now and he is not even bothered about 2019. All those who have supported him in the past must not be cruel!
Each language of India demanding autonomy for its speakers and Sovereignty for the State can no longer be refused. Warrants urgent redressal
Constitution requires an overhaul after seventy years with abolition of the Central Govt and the States acquiring their long due Sovereignty
Indian Constitution not being modelled on U.S. Constitution is a grave mistake and States lack autonomy affecting Democracy and Development.
Central Govt has become a well-oiled machine for high-level corruption with foreign collaboration. Needs to be jettisoned with States freed.
High-decibel debate on National affairs is going on 24x7 on news channels but they never touch the poor. Has become a theatre of the absurd.
Life is a mystery but a language has some certainty. Respecting each language by granting Sovereignty to the States of India is most prudent
Old religions are beyond repair and hence The Mother & Sri Aurobindo hewed a new path of living by reinventing Vedic Evolutionary dialectic.
Need to forget 1947 mentality and time for the States to take full responsibility. Guardianship of the Central Govt must end after 70 years.
Hatred for Islam, Muslims, or Pakistan may be understood as normal but not hatred for human beings and urge for legitimate self-determination
Like all other States of India, Punjab and Kashmir will be independent some day but just think of the long struggle for what is inevitable!
USSR lasted for seventy years and similarly India must democratically facilitate its own dissolution after seventy years in peaceful manner.
Poor rating of Modi Govt after three years is actually a reflection of absurdity of Indian Constitution keeping the States bonded and wilted
Ten years of UPA rule produced nothing and that Modi can give nothing has become clear. Sovereignty to States is the only workable solution.
Sri Aurobindo helps in breaking free from the shackles of prejudice and conditioning at three crucial levels: Ontology, religion, & politics
1. As regards Ontology both science and philosophy encounter an impasse. Nothing to surpass Judeo-Vedic Evolutionary teleology of Sri Aurobindo
2. Savitri Era Religion with the Integral Yoga of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo at its core is the most modern & liberal alternative to old faiths
3. Sri Aurobindo rolls out the golden mean amidst the chaos and confusion perpetrated by Gandhi, Nehru, Marx, Lohia, Ambedkar, Savarkar, et al.
Dismissing Sri Aurobindo as a Guru is common but his futuristic theories on Consciousness, Evolution, and Human Unity is grabbing attention.
1. RSS strayed away from its original inspiration from Sri Aurobindo to make Muslim-hatred a core principle by pandering to popular sentiments.
2. Sri Aurobindo had tried to salvage Congress in 1907 but the British used Gokhale to anoint Gandhi as leader to keep it under own patronage.
3. Apart from Congress and RSS, the Communist movement also owes its origin to Sri Aurobindo through M.N. Roy, Anushilan, and Jugantar groups.
4. Thus, it's clear how three major political streams have moved away from Sri Aurobindo during the last 100 years and it's time now to return.
Twitter providing an opportunity to write and share is a whopping advantage of our age which helps in disseminating Sri Aurobindo's message.
No dearth of Sri Aurobindo's followers being sympathetic to Hindutva but I attribute it to their scant reading & exercising critical reason.
Those writing on Twitter feel themselves to be Gurus and are averse to read Sri Aurobindo. But tough mental blocks vanishing is not unlikely
A new novel or movie makes news but reading a couple of pages from The Life Divine by Sri Aurobindo can be practiced https://t.co/rxKIPbZx72
A friend tried to chasten me for my bias of Sri Aurobindo by "Gurus are for those who cannot find themselves and lack proper introspection."
Educated people in India in general possess virtually no information on Sri Aurobindo save all misconceptions spread against him as rumours.
Acquaintance with writings of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo can inculcate an overall maturity in thinking from practical matters to aim of life
Welcome to the modern and liberal ethos of Savitri Era Religion inspired by The Mother & Sri Aurobindo. https://t.co/GF89UyNp5V
Each Devotee has his or her unique way and it's difficult to generalise. Your impression against worldly desires seems to be a bit misplaced
That seems to be at variance with what The Mother & Sri Aurobindo seek and hence comment on Devotees can be wrong without adequate awareness
I don't know how far you have read but "realizing the self" or "the ultimate goal" don't occur in the teaching of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo
Futile debates on whether God exists, whether Guru is necessary, separating science and Yoga, etc don't matter for Sri Aurobindo's followers
Saussure deriving his structuralism from Sanskrit leading to poststructuralism, postmodernism, and hermeneutics is a seminal gift of India.
Intellectuals in India get sucked into political networks and hence no one bats for Sri Aurobindo. But, then, they must complete schooling!
Knowledge dissemination in India isn't free or fair. Selective amnesia, political slants, skewed criticisms, agenda-driven priorities galore
Being exposed to Sri Aurobindo outside academia has been a blessing for me, personally, but most people in our country are not so fortunate.
Sri Aurobindo's synthesis has become a crucial signpost for science of consciousness but Indians don't distinguish his notion from tradition
Hindutva endeavor to stretch religious morals to cover a Democratic and liberal society is neither legitimate nor practical. Will be failure
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo were against suppression and advised transformation of nature and gradual rejection of impurities when convinced.
Philosophy in its purity should be able to tell us the mystery of certain basic issues. They are our Aim, Birth, Choice, and Death (ABCD).
When Hindutva ecosystem is gung-ho about taking over institutions and discourse apparatus, Twitter emerges as the new foe, beyond their hold
Hindutva banks on Mythology while Marxists stick to commonsense. Sri Aurobindo disrupts calm by announcing the seamless nature of existence.
Although Freud is credited with introducing subconscious into Science, Sri Aurobindo has offered the most detailed account of consciousness.
Though two decades old, Savitri Era Learning Forum (SELF) is confined to web. Those desirous of opening centres under its banner are welcome
That of course is the popular impression but if you explain a bit and spell out specific points I can attempt clarifications.
If you are aware of Marx, Darwin, Nietzsche, and Freud, then heal your intellectual malnutrition by reading The Life Divine by Sri Aurobindo
Sri Aurobindo's ARYA (1914-1921) writings are a revolution: "collapse of the old order" for "love, wisdom and unity" https://t.co/6NoO837Eyk
