Five dreams of Sri Aurobindo form a luminous roadmap for the mankind. An Evolutionary leap from the present state to a Supramental harmony might sound utopian but #SriAurobindo is emphatic about the possibility. So a federation evolving from Indian soil is a distinct eventuality.
Current election scenario is very much indicative of a plural polity based on regional aggrandisement concealing fissiparous tendencies. So from the Evolutionary point of view neither Nehruvian nor Hindutva national cohesiveness is a success. Languages reflect genuine nationhood.
We had high hopes in 2014 that Sri Aurobindo would now adorn the centrestage but after checking a large number of tweets it's evident that even in 2019 he is nowhere near anyone's wishlist. Really an unfortunate aspect for a nation which reserves ignominy for the greatest Indian.
Physical manifestation is one concept we associate unwaveringly with The Mother & Sri Aurobindo. Even the highest divine plenitude must be visible or perceptible here; that's our demand and prayer. Moreover it's not an idle waiting for the results but to imbue every act with that
Pleasant sentiments to fight boredom or depression! But who will do that? And why no one is doing it instead of fiddling with alphabets here. So being practical and setting realisable goals and reject gossip is the key. Reading Sri Aurobindo can tell more about future scenarios.
Modern empires are in the cyberspace now; geography perhaps matters less, conquering minds matter. https://t.co/KGEL4hrDQZ
Indians were regularly fighting and killing each other all through the history but some are shifting the blame to other religions. Palace intrigues in hundred of kingdoms are not fiction but many want us to believe that everyone was acting as per Dharma with evidence from poetry.
Indeed, I don't follow you much since there are glaring spaces or gaping holes between your sentences as well as logic. You expect the enemy to be sympathetic to your sentiments and play a friendly tournament like Imran Khan playing recently. (Expect a few more like NZ and Mali!)
Sri Aurobindo is regularly accused as an escapist and a slew of 'mudslinging' has been documented by Peter Heehs in his book, The Lives of Sri Aurobindo. A masterly work but also famous for its skew. Parts of it are available online free.
Odisha was busy fighting for a separate State and the leaders then were of a different make; many were poets with a universal outlook. No wonder, Odisha admires Sri Aurobindo at a mass level. Sri Aurobindo too was not enthusiastic about Subhas; saw some strains of negative energy
Scholarship is a lifelong affair and narratives keep changing. Apart from his intellectual prowess, Sri Aurobindo did disclose in public (Uttarpara speech) that he can see the future, unlike other mortals. Contesting that claim is way beyond our faculties. https://t.co/6JSzvwkDPU
I have recommended this book for more than a dozen times since 2012. https://t.co/RfubnzjtOg
Twitter being an open platform, all kinds of views need to be respected. Uninformed or unpalatable opinions also need to be circulated so that they come to the notice of a bigger audience leading to a wider engagement and animated debate. “A drop of ink may make a million think.”
I highlighted the fact of man killing man. Between cults, between ethnicities, between kingdoms, between rival businesses, so on and so forth. In most cases there is no credible history. However, such facts are being used dishonestly for spreading hatred against a specific target
I see only one difference. I'm born in a Democracy but I don't have any right to question the actions of past Kings since they were safeguarding their self-interest as well as ethics. They were sovereign and were acting as per law. But instead of them you tacitly blame religions.
Last two decades brought enormous prosperity to a huge number of Indians but they are unable to enjoy their wealth and good life due to this victimhood and whining propagated against imaginary enemies. So I take it as Divine plan to teach vairagya as has been always through ages.
I reiterate that past Kings are beyond the purview of Democratic interrogation. Discussing them is like wrestling with ghosts. Conflating issues won't bring clarity but your one point agenda is to target the people of a particular religion disregarding centuries of co-existence.
See I'm arguing that whatever happened in the past is by Monarchs who are beyond Democratic or legal interrogation. So when you bring in Islam as an entity or agency, it's anomalous. What the kings did or didn't should be the point of attention but is of no avail. @fourfoldvision
Might be, you may be right; but I have no right to question the wisdom of past kings. But giving it a religious colour is sectarian which I'm not willing to buy.
Just like Marx shouldn't be blamed for what Jyoti Basu did to WB, similarly all wrong actions of men shouldn't be put at the door of their religion. Both of us adore The Mother but differ. So perspectives relating to power, politics, self-interest are at fault. Such nuance needed
Okay, that's a good theoretical beginning though not without problems. One is the "many lives" of great men and on which to focus or draw inspiration from. Like, many great philosophers and thinkers are despised because of their Nazi connection. But still what you say has merit.
This chowkidar syndrome is so hilarious and ridiculous. To believe that there is no corruption in the govt is so atrocious. Yes, there's so much sophistication in finance now that it's impossible to trace or prove any. But large contracts like in Highways surely aren't given free
May be you are privy to insider information to make such bold claims but as an ordinary citizen I have my doubts. Besides, these aspects have become so normal that no one bothers. Media avoids small sums. Election funding is never questioned. But ultimately Democracy is to blame.
I have already said that what the kings did is none of my concern. I don't know, where I'm dishonest. As an academic subject it's okay but using certain episodes of history for arousing passion and political mobilisation is not a desirable thing. However, Democracy gives freedom.
All along I have been reading the books by The Mother & Sri Aurobindo. I don't want to corrupt my thinking by reading such books. I think, you should avoid too unless you are into academic research. Can't follow what you're saying exactly and why should it happen that way at all.
Election time is the most ideal moment to understand how various States are absolutely different from each other since local politicians matter. The power of language is best in display during this time right from street corners to TV studios. So Sovereignty is the right solution
Selling Modi brand in 2014 looks justified given the enormous odds he was against both within and outside. But repeating the same formula in 2019 seems jaded since the Party or Ideology should have assumed prominence by now. Otherwise Development is merely a synonym of Government
Concentrating on the present by relying on common sense is important. Most people are agenda driven and out to misguide. They flout logic, give a spin to events, and invariably tend to invoke the past or some imagined scenario. No one tells the truth here; sad reality of Twitter.
Spiritual significance of flowers by The Mother and Psychological interpretation of Vedic deities by Sri Aurobindo are original works and have much in common. Both highlight ethics and virtues without being tethered to any rewards mechanism of Karma theory https://t.co/r7Z8aybMq8
While the theories of Presocratic philosophers on natural elements like earth, air, fire, and water are well known, Vedic pronouncements on the same like agni etc are not very popular. Sri Aurobindo explains them as rungs of consciousness not far removed from inquiries in physics
Religions are often thought of as glass paperweights with fixed interior decorative motifs but Sri Aurobindo thinks that they are liable to evolve. So, while the present mosaic of religions seem quite stable, a more kaleidoscopic scenario will emerge. Savitri Erans must be ready.
Savitri Era of those who adore,
Om Sri Aurobindo & The Mother.
Those owing allegiance to any of the present crop of religions can't obviously claim admission to Savitri Era Religion and hence it's better to make the choice early without indulging in self-deception, any further.
Sri Aurobindo spoke of #WorldUnion in his August 14, 1947 radio broadcast and visualised a free association of free nations. States of India and Pakistan being Sovereign and forming a Federation would be a step in that direction. If not done peacefully, unrest is sure to happen.
Considering the fact that humans have been inhabiting this planet since one lakh years, creativity relating to women by men through art, architecture, poetry, literature, music, and movies is recent. So much of content but women, unfortunately, are deprived of enjoying sentiment.

Many RW handles like @sanjeevsanyal @followsanjeev @dharmadispatch apart from @esamskritiindia @IndiaFactsOrg @Pragyata_ @prekshaajournal etc. deal with religion but Savitri Era Learning Forum (SELF) has been disseminating an Integral view on Sri Aurobindo since 2005. @NathTusar
AAP seems to have retained its edge in Delhi and it would be interesting if Kejriwal gets to play the role of Kingmaker when BJP will be scrambling for stitching up a simple majority on May 23, 2019. (Pic from election campaign of @AtishiAAP in East Delhi on March 26, 2019). https://t.co/B7JmdmppQu
Almost all of Sri Aurobindo's writings can be said to be incomplete or work in process. He was never satisfied; always intended to revise. Even The Life Divine can be seen as incomplete as his essays (1949-50) revealing Mind of Light remained inconclusive. https://t.co/l3XsvPFLuM
Thanks. Please go through the essay by Seth Farber on Savitri by Sri Aurobindo. The Message of Sri Aurobindo: God, Romantic Love, and Physical Immortality https://t.co/CI8Inrv7IG
Instead of the usual sense of love, the Vedic figures of Mitra and Varuna signifying fraternity can be the model for the future society. Such a scenario of course is unthinkable at present, but the fourfold forms a fundamental structure of any organisation or moulds of Evolution.
Instead of finding fault with those particular persons, it'd be in order to check why or how such things happen, with a broader perspective. There's no example of any system or organisation running in a rational manner. Undeserved success is almost a rule, with events conspiring.
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo used to tolerate minor irritants in order to fight bigger adversaries. Events working out in ignorance was their preferred option than miraculous intervention. Hence it's difficult to identify whom Evolution backs as it also invites periodical setbacks.
Evolutionary teleology of Sri Aurobindo allows to think and act on individual, universal, and transcendent levels simultaneously. That's the meaning of Integral yoga which is open ended and independent of any fixed method. The Mother however is at the heart of any such endeavour.
Sri Aurobindo’s "final dream was a step in evolution which would raise man to a higher and larger consciousness and begin the solution of the problems" https://t.co/hC4bK2ITaC
Such a vision obviously is beyond any particular party or country and can sprout in any corner of world.
