Theosophical influences are present in the work of Sri Aurobindo

Savitri Era: Specialists are mostly unaware of Sri Aurobindo
Dayananda focused on Veda but Sri Aurobindo bridged the age old chasm between Veda and Vedanta by unveiling symbolic meanings of Vedic terms
Vivekananda's Vedanta or any other stream of Indian philosophy for that matter is inchoate. Sri Aurobindo's synthesis therefore is priceless
Vivekananda might have been partly successful in that project but fell in their trap by ignoring Dayananda and Veda. Sri Aurobindo corrected
Unfortunately, that perception is highly impaired as Sri Aurobindo has proved in his The Secret of the Veda. That's the most valuable book.
Understanding certain things accurately, by shedding emotion, is very important and you must read Sri Aurobindo in original to settle that.
I said something by way of suggestion and information but don't want to argue with you; if you don't like it, you may simply ignore it.
Veda is not merely an ancient text but Knowledge in action for Evolution to a stage when Modernity, Democracy, & Equality don't need any law
If you read Sri Aurobindo, then you can realise that Veda is nothing but a Manifesto for a perfect political order. Please disabuse yourself
You are free to disregard my suggestion. Please read Political Order: The Vedic Perspective (2002) by Ramashray Roy.
Sri Aurobindo has given the right meaning of Vedic terms. Indra means mind by progressive perfection of which society can turn into Harmony.
What I write is based on my study of Sri Aurobindo and hence I can't forget him even if I try to. Can't fulfill your demand in 140 characters

Marxist professors have enjoyed immense academic freedom during the last seventy years, but they have misused it by banishing Sri Aurobindo.
I respect the robust individualism espoused by Marxists but they should have given Sri Aurobindo a chance in the interest of open discourse.
There are certainly exceptions here and there but a representative case is a recent book by a Retd Bengali Professor
After toiling hard on Twitter for six years, the number of my followers is yet to touch the four figure. Likes and RT by a dozen only, alas!
One may not agree with my views but holding a welcome attitude for unconventional ideas and fields one is not conversant with should be norm
A group-soul, as per Sri Aurobindo, is never static and grows to attain maturity. States aspiring for Sovereignty can materialise with time.
Imposition of Hindi is a strategic project, as it can serve as a referendum between separatist and nationalist voices, wherever BJP is weak.
Law is the King in a Democracy and its rule is paramount but transgressions are tolerated and hidden within a family, Party, or Corporation.
No one thinks or treats the other person as his or her equal since competition & struggle for existence is primordial. Law enforces equality
Customs and conventions providing validity as law is juvenile and not to discard is lethargy. Annual review of all existing laws is a must.
The same Constitution worshipping equality and, at the same time, diminishing a section of citizens as Dalits is the most cruel betrayal.
Rituals being sanctioned by Shastra is no justification. Modern day Tattvas promulgated by Sri Aurobindo must take precedence over tradition
Strict Separation of Powers has been compromised in the Indian Constitution & so we are fast moving towards a full blown totalitarian regime
The Brahmins are synonymous with policy, theory, and R&D. No amount of deprecating them can take away their relevance, utility, or supremacy
Democracy vs. Management: [Sri Aurobindo and the Veda recognise four propensities in the evolving human individual.]
Savitri Era Learning Forum: Karma and popular imagination of it are universes apart #SriAurobindo #Leibniz #Qualia
Top intellectuals in sympathy with Maoist politics is in keeping with ethical imperatives taking priority over political and social order.
Ignoring economic development during British era is as prevalent as denying any benefit to India due to Chinese progress in last two decades
A simple example of human stupidity: BankOfficers not opting for Pension when offered but resorting to agitation to demand it a decade later
Rituals and astrologers flourish due to unreasonable and unhealthy reliance by people for easy gains without deserving or sweating it out.
Adam Smith never meant any Invisible hand behind economy but the way science and philosophy have failed to explain reality, it might be true
Advantage of flowing with Sri Aurobindo is that one doesn't have to depend upon flat-earth philosophers or even PoMo
For many people the idea of a guru or messiah is anathema but The Mother & Sri Aurobindo (1872-1973) are proof that human beings need a lead
If you regret one of your teenage traits, you might regret your present behavior, two decades later. Sri Aurobindo is the right touchstone.
Imitation of Colonial paraphernalia imparts a distorted image of Democracy in India upon which Modi is busy applying a fresh coat of varnish
Many sociopolitical forces in India are against Modi and have begun to work in tandem. Savitri Era Party however is opposed to both factions
One of the most intriguing facets of Indian scene now is how diametrically opposite Modi's defiant body language is to diffidence on policy.
Devotees of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo must cut the apron strings of Congress & RSS if they want to see #FiveDreams Manifesto bearing fruit.
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo were intensely involved with the Second World War (1939-1945) as part of their Judeo-Vedic Evolutionary dialectic
Without reading him hard to know Sri Aurobindo and no wonder some insinuate me being on drug
[Sri Aurobindo’s own concept of spiritual evolution, a central part of his philosophy, cannot be traced to any Indian source.] -Peter Heehs
[Theosophical influences are also present in the work of Sri Aurobindo, and through him in that of Eric Weiss ...] from "Beyond Physicalism"
[Shankara’s views on dreams resemble ideas popular in modern Western psychology but they differ greatly from that of Sri Aurobindo] -Sandeep
