The key is elsewhere

सावित्री एरा लर्निंग फोरम, गाजियाबाद पिछले पंद्रह वर्षों से विभिन्न ब्लॉगों और सोशल मीडिया प्लेटफार्मों के माध्यम से द मदर और श्रीअरविंद के संदेश का प्रसार कर रहा है।

Unlike other religions, current Hinduism has no respected admission policy but exit is wide open. Fear of losing numbers makes its members unnecessarily aggressive or antagonistic towards other faiths who openly proselyte. People should be free to choose gods like visiting Malls.

Whatever may be the larger picture, Sri Aurobindo has put his stamp of authority on history and Evolution. In this context, his #FiveDreams (of August 14, 1947) and #WorldUnion are pivotal. Let's hope this pandemic and other international happenings are facilitating its fruition.

Alternative ethical norm or developmental paradigm is easy to espouse on the part of Savitri Erans. That's the challenge of the Evolutionary compulsion. Powerful persons fail to finish their agenda; big companies collapse. So the key is elsewhere; run of the mill logic go haywire

It's common to confine The Mother & Sri Aurobindo within personal welfare and peaceful life. Most women and old men are prone to this and resist straying beyond bhakti. Silence and meditation provide validation but Integral Yoga is made up of sterner situations. So, buyer beware!

A student of Sri Aurobindo has to believe in unseen forces acting behind events all the time. "A student of her own interior scene," is about inner forces moulding our consciousness. Thus, ordinary external explanations or future projections need to be taken with a pinch of salt.

This is the methodological constraint and hence Sri Aurobindo's lighnce has to be accepted as it is. Further any form of sympathy with it instantly becomes Yoga
[we have no way of assessing his philosophy other than through conceptual tools 
available to us in the mental plane.]

Savitri Era dawned on March 29, 1914 when The Mother met Sri Aurobindo in Puducherry (then Pondicherry under France)
[Mirra Alfassa was born in 1878 in Paris to Moïse Maurice Alfassa a Turkish Jewish father, and Mathilde Ismalun an Egyptian Jewish mother.]

Four women
1. Madame David Néel
2. Dorothy Hodgson (later known as Dutta)
3. Margaret Woodrow Wilson (On 5 November 1938 Sri Aurobindo gave her the name of Nishtha)
4. Huta D. Hindocha

Sri Aurobindo was staying there with a few friends since 1910; there was no Ashram then. Then came The Mother in 1914 and a monthly journal came out. World War I and many other things happened. But Puducherry's gift of #ARYA100Years (1914-21) is like a Noah's Ark for the humanity

Educated Indians aren't aware of this treasure; they are mostly busy with the current affairs. Apart from this, there are thirty volumes of The Mother's writings and conversations.
How to Read Sri Aurobindo

Sri Aurobindo wrote five full length plays at different periods of his life which also reflect his political as well as philosophical standpoint to a certain extent.
Besides there are several incomplete ones and a few short stories.

But @doubtinggaurav is well aware of Sri Aurobindo and tweets on him occasionally. #SriAurobindo #FiveDreams #ARYA100Years (1914-21)

She came to India just to meet Sri Aurobindo. Thereafter, she decided not to return back. She had no relatives here; no other connection or attraction. Her name is Mirra. Women in India should know about her life and work and how she has transformed lives.

Not easy to establish a new worldview like Sri Aurobindo's lighnce. Even today, Plato-Aristotle, Kant-Hegel, Shelley-Keats, or Foucault-Lacan are reigning in the West. Upanishads are still considered as superior in knowledge content than the Veda in India!

A major factor Sri Aurobindo adds to traditional wisdom is the agency aspect. Each individual by just being conscious can become an active collaborator with the transformational enterprise of Evolution. This includes various levels down to reconfiguring the mind of the body cells

Sri Aurobindo has already created the blueprint a century back. #ARYA100Years (1914-21)

The Mother & Sri Aurobindo created an Ashram to take care of physical necessities of life. On a larger plane, the same principle translates as politics. So there should be clarity in our objective. Becoming scholars can't be the final aim. Money has to be won; Power has to be won

Neither in the silence of monasteries nor in the hubbub of Rituals, Sri Aurobindo's prescription is for the ordinary life fully ensconced in ignorance and imperfections. Driven by instincts and impulses and interplay of clash and conflicts with others. Any abstraction is warped.

Generalising the local is the biggest problem just because we are an unusually large nation. Magnifying minor issues and involving others mischievously becomes a habit with the media. Spectacle and controversy generate money and opportunities. Smaller nations are the only option.

Evolution of Consciousness is the biggest mystery before science and psychology today which Sri Aurobindo explained in detail in The Life Divine #ARYA100Years (1914-21). All educated persons are requested to consult the book for multifarious insights in their professional spheres

Hatred seems to be a good educator. Illiterates becoming experts on France within a couple of days is a lesson for the educational institutions of brick and mortar. Year long courses should see a modification and current affairs driven syllabus would definitely be a better option

Plural is a veritable bomb; all values stand silenced before it. Yes, choice of each one is to be respected. But where is the plurality? Where's that infinite freedom of the individual and his choreography? All seem to be guided by the polarised sentiments. So plurality is passé.

Savitri Era of those who adore, Om Sri Aurobindo & The Mother.

Catering to popular sentiments, Sri Aurobindo used to quote Gita and the Upanishads but later he shifted to the Veda. Western tradition lacks this source and therefore in every philosophical writing one finds the author shuttling among Kant, Plato, Socrates, Gospel, Homer, et al.

Major organisations like RKM, RSS, Congress, and Arya Samaj never encouraged their members to read Sri Aurobindo's books. A whole generation has suffered due to this. So Marxists are not the only one to blame. Mainstream journalists too played a role in blacking out Sri Aurobindo
To safeguard their own interests. To downplay his contribution and downgrade his greatness.
In the ancient days, trade was the lifeline and alongwith it, knowledge was also exchanged freely.

The Mother & Sri Aurobindo are attempting to speed up Evolution so that Supramental consciousness takes charge of the world affairs. Divinisation of body is also a coeval undertaking. All these are Consciousness reformulating projects. The task obviously is complex and difficult.

One advantage with Sri Aurobindo is that one can gain entry into very advanced fields of study, directly, without any college degree or basic orientation on the subject. A further benefit is one is free from prejudices, stereotypes, and value systems ossified in formal curriculum

Traditional systems entailed attaining successive siddhis or awakening chakras. Sri Aurobindo suggests surrender so that one draws dynamism directly from the cosmic Evolutionary grid. But this transaction is mediated by assent of The Mother. This is the whole key of Integral Yoga

Sri Aurobindo wrote on diverse aspects of human affairs between 1906 and 1921 which contain guidelines for harmonious living. Mitra and Varuna are the foundations of all ethical frameworks and Sri Aurobindo has explained it in no uncertain terms. Need to read him and follow him.

The Mother & Sri Aurobindo brought forward an unprecedented opportunity for the mankind as ugly incidents in France or Austria prove. Need to understand their significance for transforming the whole scenario irrevocably. No one nation or religion is capable of doing this overhaul

Sri Aurobindo has liberated people from the clutches of tradition
['Locating Viṣnupriyā in the Tradition': Women, Devotion, and Bengali Vaiṣṇavism in Colonial Times
S Dey -Religions, 2020
Viṣnupriyā, Caitanya's second wife, as it progressed from the pre-colonial hagiographic]

Since learning is a continuous process since birth, layers and layers of sedimentation occupy our mentality. We judge things accordingly. But, the first principle to approach Sri Aurobindo is to unlearn by shovelling dirt out. It's a strenuous task; needs vigilance and diligence.

Since everyone else has already commented on US politics, I should too. Their four year term is too less. It's wastage of expertise and frustrating for the person who gets elected after so much of struggle. They should copy our five years and we should copy their two terms limit.

What happens in Maharashtra shouldn't bother the people in UP. High time the States are granted Sovereignty. Savitri Era Party recommends #WorldUnion as prophesied by Sri Aurobindo in "The Human Cycle" #ARYA100Years (1914-21) and his #FiveDreams AIR broadcast on August 14, 1947.

I'm against mythology masquerading as religion but Mahabharata is most useful as an inventory of vices. It also shows how nothing has changed in all these years. So there's almost no hope for the future but Sri Aurobindo wrote SAVITRI to tell us that the Evolution is very much on

Fights between trads and retards are becoming more frequent. There's no solution to this. Sri Aurobindo has analysed these threadbare in #ARYA100Years (1914-21). But most people think they are wiser than #SriAurobindo; they don't need to read him. Hubris and hedonism drives them.

Upkeep of monuments and old buildings gulp a lot of public money. Need to develop modern alternatives for tourism instead of promoting the same old sites and jaded narratives. Building a new Lake Town somewhere, exclusively for the purpose of tourism, should be a model venture.

Instead of going to specifics, if we assume that those operating at the apex level need big money and policies obviously will be dictated by that. They also need votes and legitimacy and so optics would be adjusted accordingly. No one can be free from this and so better to accept

Communists got decimated because their own children acted as adversaries. The same fate awaits the Mandir wahin banayenge generation. And this phase was absolutely needed after the long Discovery of India lullaby era. Young people are much aware now; they will read Sri Aurobindo.

Good description but it's also essential to understand how it has come about. Evolution of this principle during the last six years has been very logical and practical. Perhaps, that's the lesson of postmodernism or a Socratic dispassion. No better principle to grapple complexity

Many religious establishments are located in inconvenient places like hills and people undergo much difficulty to visit. Many govts promote for the sake of revenue but this is an unethical avenue. Tourism should be promoted to places where people can enjoy their time hassle-free.

Striving for development of own village, district, or state is so normal that no one bothers about overall impact. As more and more people are migrating to urban environment, the rural is identified with only agriculture. Developing sites for tourism can alter the rural landscape

Nation for the Citizens and not citizens for the nation: that should be the approach. Employing people as animals or machines must stop. The pandemic must have awakened everyone to natural sleep timings which defies the office hours. Lifestyle reorientation needed curtailing work

There's not much difference between a newspaper, a magazine, or a blog these days. They all publish articles of varied credibility. Sponsors and not readers keep them floating. The concept of Market gets bogged down. But then the whole creation is also a bundle of disinformation.

For me, America is Twitter and Google which keep me engaged. Presidents hardly matter; they come and go. Their Universities haven't shown any inclination towards Sri Aurobindo which is more racial than academic. It's an open society, they say, but I perceive them as closed minds.

1. I have been reading the books and magazines relating to The Mother & Sri Aurobindo since 1964.
2. Some amount of orientation in Western philosophy since 1988 has been quite rewarding.
3. Emphasis on politics from 2007 has also been a learning and churning process.
4. Gratitude

"Earthquakes don't kill people, buildings do."
Castes don't kill people, men do.
Religions don't kill people, men do.
Nations don't kill people, men do.
Parties don't kill people, men do.
Ideologies don't kill people, men do.
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo advise to rise above these.

Sri Aurobindo wrote forty volumes #ARYA100Years (1914-21) but today's forty year olds feel they are more knowledgeable. No serious intention to engage nor any respect for exceptional scholarship. Whole education system suffers; so nation needs to mull over this at the apex level.

Who pushes us into action? Interesting argument for pursuing cultural studies

It's foolish to blame others for their decision in 1947 or 1950. If we aren't able to make amends after so many decades, then the fault is ours. States should get Sovereignty by reversing British legacy. Delhi rule has outlived its utility and should loosen itself to a federation

Lack of education is not a problem in India because those educated are responsible for faulty policies and a corrupt polity. There's no sign of any remedy as fairly aware persons support wrong political parties and defend incompetent leaders. Reading Sri Aurobindo is right guide.

Reading these can train you to fathom Shakespeare. #SriAurobindo

Another dynasty
Politics is nasty
Still icons are tasty.
When The Mother & Sri Aurobindo sowed the seeds of an Ashram in Puducherry, obviously, it was a vote for the local or the marginal. What they achieved hasn't attracted deserved academic attention but the Judeo-Vedic Evolutionary adventure of consciousness of SAVITRI is universal.

That we are all socially and culturally constructed is so apparent that it's difficult to imagine an independent rational consensus. But Sri Aurobindo's lighnce postulates an altogether different domain for mind represented by the Vedic Indra. Rising to that plane is the journey.

Not philosophy or science
But Sri Aurobindo's lighnce
Is the right source
To put out ignorance.
Schools and colleges
Are citadels of knowledge
But teach old and rickety
Stair to stupidity.
It's time to jettison
The moth-eaten syllabus
To re-establish the Veda
And SAVITRI omnibus.

Hinduism was examined from different angles during Indian Renaissance and the process continues to this day. Ambedkar converted to Buddhism without considering Sri Aurobindo's proposal for a spiritual paradigm for the whole humanity. It's a major setback for Evolutionary agenda.

Democracy can't be a legitimate concern of govt, ruling party, or even judiciary. People as a whole is also nebulous. Organisations like PUCL or PUDR couldn't grow to the desired height. Religion has clouded the thoughts of people to such an extent that this aspect is overlooked.

Sri Aurobindo's The Life Divine II (CWSA 22) was published in July 1940 with twelve new chapters where he emphasises upon harmonious collective living under the direct influence of a luminous consciousness. Highly inspiring and relevant after eighty years.

Size, quantity, and numbers are as much important in a Democracy as frailty or feebleness since quality and dignity are paramount. Thus Democracy privileges ambivalence against certainty as in postmodernism. Hegemony of huge Institutions therefore is in no way binding on citizens

The Mandir wahin banayenge generation (MWBG) is very enthusiastic in defending tradition. They're also vocal in denouncing Communism. This is often rhetorical and superficial. Spending a few months on Marxist philosophy and its contemporary ramifications is necessary for thinking

Instead of finding fault with history, Savitri Erans rely upon the grace of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo for a better future. Obviously, it involves political choice, sympathy, and support. We retain our hope on the present regime but devotees working directly with people is needed

There are no pillars in Democracy; how different colours form a magnificent rainbow is all that matters. In this exercise, everyone has a role, big or small. Each talent, each innovation is an opportunity for further developing the mosaic; integrating all in a grand choreography.

Attributing crime or evil to some ism or religion has become so common that no one feels uncomfortable about the apparent contradiction. Savitri Era is clear on this and refuses to follow the herd thinking. Pushing the thought of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo forward is the solution

Putting up with illogic is owing to lack of a viable alternative. Savitri Era has non-existent infrastructure but is hopeful of a possibility. After all, we are dealing with human beings and all those exalted predictions about the future in The Life Divine can't simply be in vain

Basically, it's a question of agency or volition. If people are voting for a new President, they can install a new thought too. Establishing a suitable modality may be a requirement but admitting that a new thought can reign through rational and irrational means is the first win.

Many aren't aware how Karmayoga is different from The Mother & Sri Aurobindo's version. While skill, perfection, and surrender are common to both; in the latter, it's a vehicle of Evolution. Anything material, including a dematerialiased tweet, becomes an ally of the Possibility.

Ambedkar benefited from Sri Aurobindo's thought, though largely unacknowledged. @arvindneela has opened the door to a fertile field of study. #SriAurobindo #FiveDreams #WorldUnion #ARYA100Years (1914-21) @NathTusar @shantprakash @BJMSOfficial @drsbasu2115

Leftists specialise on discrimination, exploitation, and human rights but refuse to question the basis of their theories. Their scholarship, by sidelining Sri Aurobindo, has been unjust and ineffective. Hindutva also neglects Sri Aurobindo and is proceeding in a juvenile fashion.

Sri Aurobindo has written so much and in so many topics that he is bound to attract comparison with other great men in the academic arena. But his relevance ends there. His spiritual aspects relates to Evolution, Emergence, and Grace. He is always present and "He does not sleep."

The Mother & Sri Aurobindo were emphatic about simultaneous development of our physical, vital, and mental aspects apart from the inner being. Culture privileges certain domains leading to hierarchy but a deeper examination with spirituality as touchstone tells a different story.

Some are denouncing America
Others are extolling Biden
Some are lobbying for China
Rest are pleading for Dynasty.
Our brand is Savitri Era
Which is only a century old
But it promises to replace
All religions of old.
Divine manifestation of
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo
Is pure gold.

Anti-Colonial sentiment perceives East-West integration with suspicion. Religious divide also plays its part which is no less vicious than Apartheid. Current hubris over Hindu assertion is normal in India. Yet, #FiveDreams of #SriAurobindo and his prediction of #WorldUnion stand.

It's a Civilisational burden; an Evolutionary challenge. There's no immediate benefit or any accolades to gain. Still, Savitri Erans will have to be true to The Mother's intention. What she thought, why she came, and what was the enduring theme till she left on November 17, 1973.

A major problem in India is that after leaving school, people continuously try to weigh who is bigger or greater among the heroes in history. Not an easy task as views are coloured based on region, religion, or political faction. Sri Aurobindo's writings provide needed guidance.

Educational philosophy of Sri Aurobindo is part of college syllabus but the contribution of The Mother in giving shape to it is rarely highlighted. Nearly 1000 schools operate in Odisha fired by the ideal of Integral Education. The Mother's stress on gender equality is also vital

That's one aspect but what Nature will gain from this? It doesn't want a defeated and dejected humanity. It wants humanity to succeed and achieve its full potential. #SriAurobindo has spoken about the Supramental consciousness. Being aware about that and aspire is the challenge.

Not only the pandemic but recent Chinese Army attack on India and the Contentious outcome of American election prove that despite all intellectual and technological progress, humanity hasn't evolved much beyond juvenility. Clinging to The Mother & Sri Aurobindo's ideals essential

All this is fine but Sri Aurobindo has reconfigured the entire scenario in #ARYA100Years (1914-21). Chain of events and trains of thought propelled by Evolutionary forces will trigger collapse. So heeding him is important. #SriAurobindo

This seemed logical but illiberal. How would you react?

True, but The Mother & Sri Aurobindo also have been influenced by a galaxy of Western philosophers and poets. Therefore, this whole legacy is best described as Integral. Today is the passing away anniversary of #TheMother #MirraAlfassa #SriAurobindo

If language evolves in an organic fashion, it's fine but now upsetting influences are there through various forms of media. So, some kind of protection and standardisation is needed even if it pertains to a very small area. Script, for instance. Why not use the best circular one?

It's something more than that as envisaged by #SriAurobindo in #ARYA100Years (1914-21). Today is the passing away day of #TheMother #MirraAlfassa of whom Indians are not aware of much. Opening towards her light and love is the ultimate path and current confusion is leading to it.

Yes, possible but it's short lived. Human nature demands something more attractive and enduring. No escape from that.

Your time is up
Your time is up
Your time is up
Your time is up
Your time is up

Time to read Sri Aurobindo thoroughly. 

PM's mention is more linked to commerce than intellect or ideology. That you are defending a distinct philosophy which is indistinguishable from practice as well is a great venture. Never before it was presented in this manner with adherents clearly identified. Let is grow wings!

लोकतंत्र में कोई स्तंभ नहीं हैं

यह एक सभ्यतागत बोझ है; एक विकासवादी चुनौती। कोई तात्कालिक लाभ या कोई प्रशंसा पाने के लिए नहीं है। फिर भी, सावित्री-ईरांस को माता के इरादे के लिए सच होना होगा। वह क्या सोचती थी, वह क्यों आई थी, और 17 नवंबर, 1973 को उसके छोड़ने तक क्या स्थायी विषय था।

उपनिवेशवाद-विरोधी भावना संदेह के साथ पूर्व-पश्चिम एकीकरण को मानती है। धार्मिक विभाजन भी अपना हिस्सा निभाता है जो रंगभेद से कम नहीं है। भारत में हिंदू मुखरता को लेकर मौजूदा विवाद सामान्य है। फिर भी, #श्रीअरविन्द के #FiveDreams और #WorldUnion की उनकी भविष्यवाणी प्रासंगिक बनी हुई है।

एक व्यक्ति के जीवन की तरह, एक समाज सभी अच्छी चीजों का लाभ नहीं उठा सकता है।  लेकिन इन कमियों और खामियों पर लगातार दोष देने का खेल चल रहा है।  राजनीति के साथ-साथ लेखकों के लिए भी चारा लेकिन अब यह समग्र विकासवादी तीर के बारे में जागरूक होने का निर्देश है और यह दिशा है।

श्रीमाँ और श्रीअरविंद हमारे शारीरिक, प्राणिक, व मानसिक भागों और तत्सहित आंतरिक अस्तित्व के एक साथ विकास की सलाह देते हैं। संस्कृति पदानुक्रम बनाती है लेकिन आध्यात्मिक आधार पर विश्लेषण सभी प्रकार के कौशल और कला के प्रति समान दृष्टिकोण को बढ़ावा देता है।

श्रीअरविन्द ने इतने और इतने विषयों में लिखा है कि वह अकादमिक क्षेत्र में अन्य महापुरुषों के साथ तुलना के लिए बाध्य हैं। लेकिन उनकी प्रासंगिकता वहीं खत्म हो जाती है। उनके आध्यात्मिक पहलू इवोल्यूशन, इमर्जिंग, और ग्रेस से संबंधित हैं। वह हमेशा मौजूद रहता है और "उसे नींद नहीं आती है।"

वामपंथी भेदभाव, शोषण, और मानवाधिकारों के विशेषज्ञ हैं लेकिन उनके सिद्धांतों के आधार पर सवाल उठाने से इनकार करते हैं। श्रीअरविन्द को दरकिनार कर उनकी विद्वता अन्यायपूर्ण और अप्रभावी रही है।  हिंदुत्व भी श्रीअरविन्द की उपेक्षा करता है और किशोर अवस्था में आगे बढ़ रहा है।

उनके बाद जो हुआ उससे प्रभावित हुए बिना नेहरू का मूल्यांकन करना असंभव है।  लेकिन एक सहस्राब्दी के बंधन के बाद भारत के प्रधानमंत्री बनना , जब श्रीमा और श्रीअरविन्द दोनों उपस्थित थे, तो यह कोई साधारण घटना नहीं है।  उन्होंने पूर्व-पश्चिम एकीकरण को ठोस रूप दिया

नैतिकता और सौंदर्यशास्त्र दो अलग-अलग धाराएं हैं, श्रीअरविन्द कहते हैं।  नैतिकता तर्कसंगत है और नियम संचालित हैं जबकि सौंदर्यशास्त्र हृदय-राज्य से संबंधित है और इसलिए थोड़ा तरल है।  नैतिकता हालांकि उच्चतर असुरता कब्जा कर सकती है लेकिन उस स्कोर पर कलाकार के ढीले होने की संभावना है

कई लोग यह नहीं जानते हैं कि कर्मयोग श्रीमां और श्रीअरविन्द के संस्करण से कैसे अलग है।  जबकि कौशल, पूर्णता, और समर्पण दोनों के लिए सामान्य हैं;  दूसरा इवोल्यूशन का एक वाहन है।  वर्चुअल ट्विट सहित काम से जुड़ी कोई भी सामग्री संभावना की सहयोगी बन जाती है।

गहरी सोच पर, कोई यह महसूस कर सकता है कि आरएसएस का खुद को संशोधित करने और बहुत उदार मुद्राओं को अपनाने का एक स्पष्ट संकेत है।  यह शीर्ष स्तर से आ रहा है, बिना किसी संदेह के।  हो सकता है कि एक राजनीतिक मजबूरी हो, लेकिन गहरी प्रतिबद्धता के बिना नहीं।  इसमें श्री अरविंद की भूमिका निश्चित रूप से है।

असल में, यह एजेंसी या महत्वाकांक्षा का सवाल है।  यदि लोग नए राष्ट्रपति के लिए मतदान कर रहे हैं, तो वे एक नया विचार भी स्थापित कर सकते हैं।  एक उपयुक्त साधन स्थापित करना एक आवश्यकता हो सकती है लेकिन यह स्वीकार करना कि एक नया विचार तर्कसंगत और तर्कहीन माध्यम से शासन कर सकता है पहली जीत है।

अतार्किक को सहन करना एक व्यवहार्य विकल्प की कमी के कारण है।  सावित्री एरा के पास गैर-मौजूद बुनियादी ढांचा है लेकिन एक संभावना के प्रति आशावान है।  आखिरकार, हम लोगों के साथ काम कर रहे हैं और श्रीअरविंद की पुस्तक "द लाइफ डिवाइन" में उनके भविष्य के बारे में पूर्वसूचित भविष्यवाणी निश्चित रूप से व्यर्थ नहीं हो सकती है–-pa

अपराध या बुराई को किसी विचारधारा या धर्म में शामिल करना इतना आम हो गया है कि कोई भी स्पष्ट विरोधाभास के बारे में असहज महसूस नहीं करता है।  इस पर सावित्री एरा स्पष्ट है और झुंड की सोच का पालन करने से इनकार करती है। श्रीमाँ और श्रीअरविन्द के विचार को आगे बढ़ाना ही इसका हल है

बहुत आशावादी;  बहुत सरल है।  क्या मायने रखता है विश्वदृष्टि और विज्ञान और न केवल संस्कृति या साहित्य।  श्रीअरविन्द ने इन सभी पहलुओं के बारे में विस्तार से बताया है।  वह भविष्य को डिजाइन करने के लिए विकासवादी ताकतों के साथ सहयोग करने के लिए कहता है।  यहां तक ​​कि गंदगी पिघलने वाले बर्तन का हिस्सा है!

लोकतंत्र में कोई स्तंभ नहीं हैं;  अलग-अलग रंग एक शानदार इंद्रधनुष बनाते हैं जो सभी मायने रखता है।  इस प्रयास में, सभी की भूमिका होती है, बड़ी या छोटी।  प्रत्येक प्रतिभा, प्रत्येक नवाचार मोज़ेक को और विकसित करने का अवसर है;  एक भव्य कोरियोग्राफी में सभी को एकीकृत करना।

मंदिर वहिं बनाएंगे पीढ़ी (MWBG) परंपरा का बचाव करने में बहुत उत्साही है। वे साम्यवाद की निंदा करने में भी मुखर हैं। यह अक्सर बयानबाजी और सतही है। मार्क्सवादी दर्शन और इसके समकालीन प्रभाव पर कुछ महीनों का अध्ययन सामग्रीक सोचन के लिए आवश्यक है

एक लोकतंत्र में आकार, मात्रा और संख्या उतनी ही महत्वपूर्ण होती है जितनी गुणवत्ता और गरिमा सर्वोपरि होती है।  इस प्रकार लोकतंत्र पोस्टमॉडर्निज़्म रूप में निश्चितता के खिलाफ अम्बिवलेंस है।  इसलिए विशाल संस्थानों का आधिपत्य किसी भी तरह से नागरिकों पर बाध्यकारी नहीं है

श्रीअरविंद की द लाइफ डिवाइन - II (CWSA 22) को जुलाई 1940 में बारह नए अध्यायों के साथ प्रकाशित किया गया था, जहां वे एक चमकदार चेतना के प्रत्यक्ष प्रभाव के तहत सामंजस्यपूर्ण सामूहिक जीवन जीने पर जोर देते हैं। #श्रीअरविंद का यह मैग्नम ऑप्स अस्सी साल बाद भी अत्यधिक प्रेरणादायक और प्रासंगिक है।

हालाँकि सेलिंग और हेगेल में अत्यधिक सहज विकासवादी सिद्धांत उपलब्ध हैं, श्री अरविंद को डार्विन के बाद लिखने का फायदा है।  यहां तक ​​कि वह अपने समकालीनों जैसे कि बर्गसन, सैमुअल अलेक्जेंडर या टेइलहार्ड डे चारडीन को भी विकसित करने के लिए एक सुसंगत सिद्धांत तैयार करते हैं।

भारतीय पुनर्जागरण के विभिन्न चरणों के तहत विभिन्न कोणों से हिंदू धर्म की जाँच की गई थी और कहा जा सकता है कि यह प्रक्रिया आज भी जारी है। अंबेडकर पूरी मानवता के लिए एक सार्वभौमिक आध्यात्मिक प्रतिमान के लिए श्रीअरविन्द के प्रस्ताव पर विचार किए बिना बौद्ध धर्म में परिवर्तित हो गए। यह विकासवादी एजेंडे के लिए एक बड़ा झटका है। और उनके लिए भी जिस जाती वर्ग के लिए वह संघर्ष कर रहे थे और सम्मान मांग रहे थे।

सत्य की मार्क्सवादी विकृतियाँ हिन्दू लेंस के तहत पीलिया के दृष्टिकोण से बहुत भिन्न नहीं हैं। श्रीअरविन्द त्रुटिपूर्ण इतिहास का एक प्रमुख शिकार रहे हैं। राजनेता स्वतंत्र है, लेकिन छात्रों को सही धारणा एकत्र करनी चाहिए ताकि वे भविष्य को डिजाइन करने के लिए यर्थाथ साधन बन सकें। सावित्री एरा इस दिशा में प्रयास कर रही है | सत्य को सामने लाना सभी नागरिकों का कर्त्तव्य है |

गांधी से संबंधित श्रीअरविंद की टिप्पणियों पर कुछ भ्रम है जबकि दोनों एक दूसरे के पूरक थे। नेहरू और टैगोर को भी समान परिप्रेक्ष्य में देखा जा सकता है। मार्क्सवादी इस दृष्टि-कोण से इनकार करते हैं लेकिन एक स्तंभ के बिना अन्य तीन स्तंभ एक मजबूत घर कैसे बना सकते हैं? बीसवीं सदी के इस सत्य को समझना महत्वपूर्ण है।

श्रीअरविन्द को एक क्रांतिकारी के रूप में जाना जाता है, लेकिन वे चेतना के क्षेत्र में एक क्रांतिकारी भी हैं। सौ साल पहले उन्होंने पुष्टि की थी कि चेतना का एक नया स्तर पृथ्वी की धरती पर जड़ लेने के लिए इंतजार कर रहा है। यह अज्ञानता के अंधेरे को दूर करेगा और एक सामंजस्यपूर्ण समाज की स्थापना करेगा। हम सभी को उसका स्वागत करना चाहिए।

दर्शन या विज्ञान नहीं
लेकिन श्री अरबिंदो की लंगोटी
सही स्रोत है
अज्ञानता दूर करना।
स्कूल और कॉलेज
ज्ञान के गढ़ हैं
लेकिन पुरानी और विकट सिखाना
मूर्खता की सीढ़ी।
यह समय जेल में बंद करने का है
पतंगे खाया पाठ्यक्रम
वेद को फिर से स्थापित करने के लिए
और SAVITRI सर्वग्राही।

हम सभी सामाजिक और सांस्कृतिक रूप से इतने स्पष्ट हैं कि स्वतंत्र तर्कसंगत सहमति की कल्पना करना मुश्किल है। लेकिन श्रीअरविन्द की जांघ वैदिक इंद्र द्वारा दर्शाए गए मन के लिए पूरी तरह से अलग डोमेन पोस्ट करती है। उस विमान से उठना ही यात्रा है।

जब द मदर एंड श्रीअरविन्द ने पुडुचेरी में एक आश्रम के बीज बोए, तो जाहिर है, यह स्थानीय या सीमांत के लिए एक वोट था। उन्होंने जो हासिल किया, वह अकादमिक ध्यान आकर्षित करने लायक नहीं है, लेकिन SAVITRI की चेतना की जूडो-वैदिक विकासवादी साहसिक सार्वभौमिक है।

भारत में शिक्षा की कमी कोई समस्या नहीं है क्योंकि जो लोग शिक्षित हैं वे दोषपूर्ण नीतियों और भ्रष्ट राजनीति के लिए जिम्मेदार हैं। किसी भी उपाय का कोई संकेत नहीं है क्योंकि काफी जागरूक व्यक्ति गलत राजनीतिक दलों का समर्थन करते हैं और अक्षम नेताओं का बचाव करते हैं। श्रीअरबिंद को पढ़ना सही मार्गदर्शक है। #SriAurobindo

श्रीअरविन्द का ARYA लेखन (1914-21) पिछली सदी में जमा हुए कई भ्रमों को दूर करने के लिए था। पारंपरिक ज्ञान और बारहमासी दर्शन दुर्जेय बाधाएं हैं। #TheMother & #SriAurobindo उन्हें बेरहम सवाल करने और उन्हें बेरहमी से काटने के लिए प्रोत्साहित करते हैं। #ARYA100Years (1914-21) ने जूदेव-वैदिक भविष्यवाणी के अनुरूप सामंजस्यपूर्ण समझ के नए सिद्धांत स्थापित किए।

श्रीअरविंद के कोलकाता चरण के बारे में भूलना बेहतर है। इसी तरह, आश्रम का दौरा करने का उनकी प्रासंगिकता से कोई लेना-देना नहीं है। #ARYA100Years (1914 - 21) उनके योगदान की वास्तविक गिरी है जिसने मानव सभ्यता के पाठ्यक्रम को फिर से परिभाषित किया। विज्ञान ने अब तक जो दिखाया है वह है बच्चों का खेल। #श्रीअरविंद ने अपने द लाइफ डिवाइन में इसका सबसे प्रामाणिक लेखा-जोखा प्रस्तुत किया है।
The Life Divine

कई लोगों के लिए सावरकर, अंबेडकर, या सीता राम गोयल की तुलना में श्रीअरबिंद द्वारा वेद का रहस्य मामूली महत्व का है। ऐसी मूर्खता का कोई उपाय नहीं है। इस प्रकार पुस्तक को पढ़ने के लिए लोकप्रिय राय से परे देखने के लिए प्रत्येक शिक्षित व्यक्ति की जिम्मेदारी है। पहली आवश्यकता यह स्वीकार करना है कि #श्रीअरबिंद ने सबसे सुसंगत और वैज्ञानिक विश्वदृष्टि दी है ।
The Secret of the Veda #ARYA100Years (1914-21)

चेतना का विकास आज विज्ञान और मनोविज्ञान के सामने सबसे बड़ा रहस्य है जिसे #श्रीअरबिंद ने द लाइफ डिवाइन #ARYA100Years (1914-21) में विस्तार से बताया है। सभी शिक्षित व्यक्तियों से अनुरोध है कि वे अपने पेशेवर क्षेत्रों में विविध अंतर्दृष्टि के लिए पुस्तक से परामर्श करें।

श्रीअरविन्द ने चालीस खंड #ARYA100Years (1914-21) लिखे, लेकिन आज के चालीस वर्ष के बच्चों को लगता है कि वे अधिक जानकार हैं। अध्ययन के लिए कोई गंभीर इरादा नहीं और न ही असाधारण छात्रवृत्ति के लिए कोई सम्मान। संपूर्ण शिक्षा प्रणाली ग्रस्त है; इसलिए राष्ट्र को शीर्ष स्तर पर इस पर विचार करना चाहिए। #श्रीअरविन्द #SriAurobindo

How to Read Sri Aurobindo

शिक्षण या पत्रकारिता जैसे कुछ व्यवसायों में, बौद्धिक सामग्री किसी के जीवन पर आक्रमण करने की संभावना है। ऐसे मामलों में, श्रीअरविन्द का लेखन एक लंगर के साथ-साथ एक निरंतर टचस्टोन साबित होता है। यह सुनिश्चित करने के लिए कि जानबूझकर सीमांकन योग का सबसे उत्तम रूप हो सकता है। #श्रीअरविन्द 

मैं धर्म के रूप में पौराणिक कथाओं के खिलाफ हूँ, लेकिन महाभारत एक सूची की तरह उपयोगी है। यह भी दर्शाता है कि इन सभी वर्षों में कुछ भी नहीं बदला है। इसलिए भविष्य के लिए लगभग कोई उम्मीद नहीं है लेकिन श्रीअरविन्द ने हमें यह बताने के लिए SAVITRI लिखा है कि विकास पर बहुत अधिक है 
#SriAurobindo #श्रीअरविन्द

अन्य धर्मों के विपरीत, वर्तमान हिंदू धर्म में कोई सम्मानित प्रवेश नीति नहीं है, लेकिन बाहर निकलना व्यापक है। संख्या खोने का डर इसके सदस्यों को अनावश्यक रूप से आक्रामक या अन्य विश्वासों के प्रति विरोधी बना देता है जो खुलेआम धर्मांतरण करते हैं। लोगों को मॉल में जाने जैसे देवताओं को चुनने के लिए स्वतंत्र होना चाहिए।

मेरे लिए, अमेरिका ट्विटर और गूगल है जो मुझे सक्रिय रखते हैं। राष्ट्रपति शायद ही मायने रखते हैं; वे आते हैं और जाते हैं। उनके विश्वविद्यालयों ने श्रीअरविन्द के प्रति कोई झुकाव नहीं दिखाया है जो अकादमिक की तुलना में अधिक नस्लीय है। लोग कहते हैं, यह एक खुला समाज है, लेकिन मैं उन्हें बंद दिमाग के रूप में देखता हूं।

Savitri Era dawned on March 29, 1914 when The Mother met Sri Aurobindo in Puducherry (then Pondicherry under France)

Not easy to establish a new worldview like Sri Aurobindo's lighnce. Even today, Plato-Aristotle, Kant-Hegel, Shelley-Keats, or Foucault-Lacan are reigning in the West. Upanishads are still considered as superior in knowledge content than the Veda in India!
#SriAurobindo #SavitriEra

A student of Sri Aurobindo has to believe in unseen forces acting behind events all the time. "A student of her own interior scene," is about inner forces moulding our consciousness. Thus, ordinary external explanations or future projections need to be taken with a pinch of salt.

Lighnce of Sri Aurobindo stretches from the Veda to Nietzsche

Thanks Alan. Your valiant fight will always be remembered in the circle of admires, devotees, and followers of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo. Almost fifteen years now when there were only a handful who had read and had the courage to say the right thing with so much of conviction.

After reading "Sri Aurobindo and Hinduism," a 2006 speech by Peter Heehs, I was stunned. It struck me how Indian mythology is going to be like Greek mythology. Then The Secret of the Veda further cemented the prospect. So no illusions now. An example of how precision is paramount

This is an absurd representation, yet no attempt to dispel. Dissing secularism or liberalism has cost dear. Certain persons may be anathema but why throw noble values out with the bathwater?
[The Hindutva reality of the world does not allow multiple voices to exist, …S Banerjee]

Udar had started industrial activities with one rupee capital contributed by The Mother.
Sri Aurobindo Ashram Press offers a range of printing services which include single and four colour offset printing, screen printing, binding and lamination services.

Understanding political philosophy of Sri Aurobindo is important.
1. His revolutionary period is no longer relevant
2. His high hopes for India is better moderated
3. Wherever he wrote Hindu was just contextual
4. References against the West not serious
5. Future is #WorldUnion👍

I don't think Partition happened without the blessings of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo. Even the role played by The Mother during Bangladesh war is on record. So a future #WorldUnion emerging from Indian soil can't be ruled out. Auroville holds soils from 124 Nations and 23 States.

Sri Aurobindo declined to meet him but that doesn't exactly mean that Sri Aurobindo was against Gandhi. Churchill was wrong in many respects but Sri Aurobindo found him to be the most fit instrument to confront Hitler. Thus, history is a bit more comlex when #SriAurobindo enters.

History has been in awe of big buildings and cities. A general impression prevails that being tantamount to civilisation. Yet, it's an erroneous impression. Man is the arena, no matter his habitat. India to a large degree has preserved charm of rural life despite TV and Internet.

EU type unity is different from the unity in India. Linguistic States deserve Sovereignty so that the nucleus of a #WorldUnion germinates. Bharata Federation can be the model for the future world in consonance with Sri Aurobindo's vision. Europe lacks that Evolutionary potential.

Major languages in India are under stress but still can be said to be by and large intact due to music and movies accessed over web. That's the most effective glue plus geographical contiguity. Each State will take care of its own culture as filtered through demands of Modernity.

Be it festival or pandemic, war or migration, our job is pretty simple. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo are present being a given, there's nothing to worry regarding modalities or consequences. Past stance of those who fret and fume can be checked easily to realise how futile they are

How come puny human aspiration assumes such a function of epic proportions in the arena of Integral Yoga? Or, how the lowly emotions are suddenly endowed with powers to reinvent themselves and redeem the dismal situation? Sri Aurobindo's unique theory of Involution is the answer.

Lockdown highlighted how supply chains are crucial which in fact can be traced to food chain that's the basis of society and interconnectedness. But all that concerns just sustenance rising up from the level of which is the very significance of being human. The Veda reminds this.

Taking pride in not tied to one book is as ignorant as being tied to one book. The Veda (as explained by Sri Aurobindo) is fundamental to all further understanding of life and its priorities till one arrives at SAVITRI. Any laxity or flippancy isn't in the interest of immortality

Don't be intimidated by their English or quoting Spender. Those who haven't read Sri Aurobindo are illiterates. Those who are unwilling to read him are scoundrels. You can't have an ounce of knowledge without acquaintance with Sri Aurobindo's The Secret of the Veda. #ARYA100Years

Love for the nation needn't mean hate for fellow human beings: this seems to be the distinct messege from the RSS top brass. Very welcome turn in the history of Indian civilisation. Return to JP paradigm and Kulkarni doctrine will allow to focus attention on matters that matter.

Thanks Alan. Your valiant fight will always be remembered in the circle of admires, devotees, and followers of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo. Almost fifteen years now when there were only a handful who had read and had the courage to say the right thing with so much of conviction.

Companies had been conceived to provide certain secrecy to investors and limited liability to promoters. But the same has been extended to most aspects of their functioning now resulting in eclipsing of transparency. Reversing it should be the task of civil society and Democracy.

France, Nigeria, Pakistan, Thailand
What's happening?
Let's pray for peace and harmony.

Integral Yoga is not very particular about idol worship but Relics of Sri Aurobindo have become an essential element. Physical presence of a photograph or a book, similarly, imparts its own vibration and effect. After all, the whole aim is how matter can reveal the Spirit's face.

Integral Yoga is akin to an on-the-job training; no need of initial perfection or technical expertise. One learns hands on. All life is yoga, said Sri Aurobindo. It's so open and inviting. Every moment is imbued with possibilities. Evolution is always on.

People, whether illiterate or educated, are under the clutch of superstitions and self-certification. It's a result of group behaviour and there's no easy escape. Savitri Era Party keeps the hope aloft that present stupidity of the people can turn towards Sri Aurobindo, one day.

This govt did nothing to bolster the relevance of Sri Aurobindo but curiously some are remembering him from Modi's present looks. Nothing wrong, but Modi should learn from Dr. Karan Singh how to recite the poem 'Who' for an authentic feel. #ARYA100Years

Why it's that people don't refer to Sri Aurobindo singly? He is always surrounded by 3-4 other names. This implies lack of precision. Also, posing of erudition though lacking in depth. But, many do it deliberately to downplay his greatness as if there's nothing special about him.

The greatest contribution of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo is giving us freedom from received wisdom. Absolutely no bondage to any past narrative and no compulsion to follow any ritual. In consonance with Modernity but it goes a step further. Yoga means "your own godward adventure."

2020 has been a learning period for all. Development, Environment, and Governance are reorienting themselves while politics, economics, and entertainment are trying to reconfigure priorities. Good for civilisation as a whole but the real aim of life needs to be addressed straight

From Veda to SAVITRI, Sri Aurobindo emphasises upon how to overcome death and disease by accessing higher echelons of consciousness. But most here insist that he wanted India to be a superpower. Such a pathetic state of reception of his sublime vision in #ARYA100Years (1914-21) !

Point is Democracy in its deeper picture can't be devoid of a spiritual tributary and this rupture with its perceived secular nature should be mainstream. It doesn't mean that it becomes synonymous with religion but can identify with some kind of universality like Sri Aurobindo's

Misgivings regarding the word secular in the Constitution is widespread but that's only in its trivial sense. Man is not a secular animal as Sri Aurobindo highlights in his #Lighnce in #ARYA100Years (1914-21) and so, Democracy should aglow with that dimension of human phenomenon.

Not a mindset, Democracy has been legally promulgated through the Constitution. Delhi hosts a huge parade to remind every winter.

Democracy is rarely discussed. I had watched Republic TV on its opening day and found it to be utterly undemocratic. Thus, Democracy is not about elections alone. How you deal with people and their views even on Twitter has implications for Democracy. Sensitising the young needed

There's a confusion as to whether India is 70 years old or 7000 years? Here the identity of nation or civilisation is irrelevant. The fact is Indian Democracy is 70 years old which at present is under strains. Further, Democracy not being natural but a normative, effort necessary

Sure but Democracy is epitome of ethics and society fails to raise itself to that level most often. Fighting for rights and doing the right thing don't match always. Society is multilayered and the challenge is how to foster the best form of Democracy by harmonising diverse pulls

A govt. is within its rights to introduce reforms and experiment alternative procedures. There's no substitute to that for testing innovation. So, the opposition stalling every bill, at the outset, is undemocratic. There has to be a certain amount of trust on a duly elected govt.

Democracy doesn't want to be in war with society but its commitment is towards the citizen. Society employs many strategies to keep the individual under leash. Castes, kinship, religion, education, etc. create dominance and hierarchy whereas Democracy attempts to spread equality.

As a keen observer of political scene for the last fifty years, the present is of no serious concern in comparison to what we have seen in the past. The govt is firmly in the saddle and no perceived threat to Constitutional values. Kejriwal, thankfully, has stopped his Khurafati.

Govt should exit education and culture sector. Govt approved Degrees and Syllabus have no utility now. Huge buildings and campus for schools and colleges take away the emphasis from education itself. The form has become more important than the intention. Self-study more effective

Democracy assumes that a govt rules but it seems to have become insufficient with round the clock TV coverage. Issues have proliferated and are so complex that no govt machinery, howsoever large, can respond to them, adequately. Same as cases pending in Courts for years together.

The Complete Works of Sri Aurobindo (CWSA) is available free online in 36 volumes out of which two volumes are Record of Yoga.
People are willing to believe in Mythological Rishis but aren't interested in the day to day diary of his grim spiritual journey.

TV news industry is thirty years old and occupies significant attention space in every home. Spectacles are a regular feature which are fermented by interested quarters. Being a visual medium in the genre of movies which came a century before, the lure of fiction or twists exist.

Despite humanity being almost at the peak of its abilities, we see so much of conflict in the society and among nations. #Lighnce of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo is the only recourse in such a crisis as relying upon piecemeal solutions is delusional. #ARYA100Years (1914-21) is key.

Sri Aurobindo's writings have been variously described like philosophy, metaphysics, cosmology, ontology, yoga psychology, evolutionary prophecy, spiritual physics, integral advaita, etc. But basically, they are advanced and enlightened science to which we give the name #Lighnce.

Bangladesh is example now how smaller nations prosper. Savitri Era Party is advocating Sovereignty for States on linguistic basis under a federal structure in consonance with Sri Aurobindo's #FiveDreams and #WorldUnion in his broadcast on August 14, 1947.

We needn't denounce science or its methods; it's crucial at every step of our life including this tweet. Sri Aurobindo explained his Cosmological framework as supra-physical but considering the luminous nature of his metaphysics which is ahead of science, let's call it "Lighnce."

Sri Aurobindo's The Life Divine #ARYA100Years (1914-21) is basically a response to Darwin. Thus his #Lighnce stretches from the Veda to Nietzsche in a grand philosophical enterprise. Nothing need to be added to his sublime and universal Evolutionary schema

If only India can understand what Halbfass indicated in 1981/1988
[India and Europe: An Essay in Philosophical Understanding
Wilhelm Halbfass — 1988
In contrast to Vivekananda — whom he clearly exceeds in intellectual and visionary power — Aurobindo does not go “missionizing”...]

Ancient texts available today are mixtures. Authorship collective. Sri Aurobindo never relied upon them fully. But root sounds of various words opened the gate to whole territories of new interpretation. If people can understand the simple meaning of Gorakhpur, it would be great.

Many people, directly and indirectly, advise me to practice and experience instead of any mental exercise or writing. They forget about Swabhava and Swadharma. I wish them well in their pursuit of experience. But I wonder, what they are doing on Twitter; why at all they are here?

Local centres focus on meditation, spirituality, and silence. But there's also a need to be vocal about the vision of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo. Political committees to push and highlight issues like #FiveDreams, #WorldUnion, and #ARYA100Years should come up all over the country

A crime is a crime irrespective of caste, religion, or location. It's between the police and the perpetrators. The tendency to reap political dividends and shoring up TRP out of select cases is unjust. Live cases being raised to the fictional appeal of Mythological proportion bad

From her early years, The Mother was conscious of her spiritual mission which she continued till she passed away in 1973 at the age of 95. Such a resolve is rare and the guidance she has provided to the humanity is unprecedented. Without her, Sri Aurobindo wouldn't have succeeded

1. Some actions are voluntary
2. Some are habitual or reflex action
3. Some actions are involuntary but known by Doctors, Psychologists, etc
4. Some involuntary actions are even beyond their field of study
5. Some actions are still beyond that are arbitrary, erratic, or ecstatic

For understanding #India2020, one needs to start with #ARYA100Years (1914-21). The West has a significant role here, both politically and intellectually. Ancient Indian texts needed to be reinvented and old ethical tenets needed to be burnished with modern sensibilities. #SAVITRI

Thanks for your encouraging words but many a time I go beyond the writings of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo when it comes to speculating on current affairs or grappling with political issues. Some get irritated and boycott but in that case the loss is theirs.

Indian Constitution gives complete freedom to individuals but some use the cloak of religion to enforce authority. Religion is godward sentiments; any other use is an aberration. Similarly commercial exploitation and lifestyle controlling propensity of religions is reprehensible.

Savitri Era of those who adore, Om Sri Aurobindo & The Mother.
In #ARYA100Years (1914-21), #SriAurobindo delegitimised the narrow notion of Hindu by foregrounding the universal "Veda." This is a volcanic event the implications of which are yet to be understood by Indians as all factionalism, parochialism, or sectarianism fell by the wayside.

Many are not comfortable with Ashram as a cult and thus tend to avoid #SriAurobindo. That's certainly not the right approach. #ARYA100Years (1914-21) provides a pure intellectual playground and a Manifesto for the future. Be it Cosmology or Evolution, even science is challenged.

Expressions like All religions are same or The world's a family are ridiculed regularly but no one can rob their metaphysical import. Fundamental unity of human race can't be denied just because someone belongs to another religion. One can't absolve himself from basic duty to him

Fiction and Mythology have affected thinking to a large extent. Movies, in our time, exert such an influence upon people, young and old. Philosophers and Psychologists have been carried away by imaginary characters. Ethics is ascertained by referring to stories and legends. Alas!

Deriving theory from live cases too is equally dubious. Establishing direct correlations between action and its consequences is far too mechanical. This is the reason why politics, economics, or even psychology look erratic. Past data is rarely a sound basis for future principles

Well intentioned but there's no perfect system of administration, either govt or private. Initially good work will be there but gradually unscrupulous elements will elbow out honest persons. Then commercial interest will force a cartel; it's no more religion but a political unit.

All have contributed to the creation of India today. So those lamenting are in the wrong. The role of English is so intimate and widespread that those who speak against it seem misguided. Similarly those pushing Sanskrit learning are also deluded. Sovereign States is the solution

VP Singh used to be a normal congress leader till Bofors catapulted him as Prime Minister. Govindacharya applied his Social Engineering to bring BJP to power in major States. Modi is Prime Minister today on the basis of this legacy. Another strand can be traced to the JP movement

People aren't aware of even basic details about Sri Aurobindo. Then, various false theories float about him. The Mother is also subjected to many misunderstandings. All this are too much for an already chaotic situation of India.

Read so many tweets the theme of which I can't understand or am not much aware of. Doesn't interest me too. So posting a video from my visit last year at this time which everyone can enjoy.
In the blue of the sky, in the green of the forest
- Sri Aurobindo

All problems of life are essentially problems of immortality, to rephrase the famous line from The Life Divine #ARYA100Years (1914-21). Sri Aurobindo said almost the same in Karmayogin in 1909: for it is only through life that one can reach to immortality.

TV is interesting because of news
News is interesting because of politics
Politics is interesting because of religion
Religion is interesting because of hate.
Hate is interesting because of ignorance
Ignorance is interesting because of immortality
Immortality is the aim ultimate.

You didn't vote for him but he is the PM
So what's the solution for the citizen?
Whether to criticise on a daily basis
Or forget about it and make peace?
Democracy is the answer for right attitude
Wait for five years with patience and gratitude
And humility to accept next results

Twenty years since I pasted the first communication on our colony notice board on October 15, 2000 announcing Savitri Era Learning Forum (SELF). Internet in 2005 ushered in a paradigm shift and volcanic changes in engaging with spirituality. @shantprakash's book came on 15.10.20.

Never imagined that I could publish instantly in Twitter but technology has provided the opportunity. What I write is a cumulative product of sixty years but unfortunately most here fail to realise the gigantic potential of the brand and so don't endorse due to ego and ignorance.

More decibels, more visibility, and aggressive marketing are the means how the message of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo can spread far and wide. Slight sympathy on this score won't allow to sleep in peace. That kind of zeal is the need of the hour; see, how other organisations gear.

After reading "Sri Aurobindo and Hinduism," a 2006 speech by Peter Heehs, I was stunned. It struck me how Indian mythology is going to be like Greek mythology. Then The Secret of the Veda further cemented the prospect. So no illusions now. An example of how precision is paramount
Some are endowed with sizable muscles but they mistake them for intellectual muscle as well. They push the party line and wonder why everyone else is not following it. They display impatience and annoyance at at any sign of dissidence. Thus knowing right has a lot of importance.

There seems to be no clue as to why ideologies are witnessing fermentation or reconfiguration but fortunately for us Sri Aurobindo dwelt upon such prospects from a Vedic Evolutionary angle in The Human Cycle exactly a century before #FiveDreams #WorldUnion #ARYA100Years (1914-21)

Human wants, instincts, and impulses fuel economy. Sentiments such as possessing or controlling propel politics. But, interestingly, all these feelings and forces also form the basic ingredients for spirituality and yoga psychology. That's why Sri Aurobindo said All life is yoga.

The concept of a Parliament or Democracy predate mass media. TV and Internet have corrupted many facets of Democracy. Creating spectacles or abnormal incidents before elections have become a norm which sway voters. Thus unless rules of the game are adhered to, it will be a farce.

Sri Aurobindo is the meeting point and RSS is inching towards him whereas no such sign is visible from the opposite camp. #ARYA100Years (1914-21) has set the agenda a century back and therefore no need for any fresh ideological quest either. #FiveDreams #WorldUnion #SavitriEra

It's necessary to understand the hand of Evolution behind events. Why Hinduism struggles for legitimacy in its own homeland is worth analysing. Sri Aurobindo said a century back that it's a sinking ship. Ambedkar jumped from one sinking ship to another. #SavitriEra is the future.

Defenders of Hinduism deserve praise for their zeal and dedication but prudence warrants vigilance and responding to warning signals. Secondly, it needs to be decided whether what the village priest says is final or one should check what a person like Sri Aurobindo has predicted.

Chronology is important. CPI and RSS were born in 1925 but Sri Aurobindo had already published The Human Cycle in #ARYA100Years (1914-21). Even, Swaraj Party came later in 1923. Sri Aurobindo has reinvented the Veda and turned it into of universal appeal.

It's the duty of every intellectual in India to celebrate #ARYA100Years (1914-21) and spread awareness about its epochal contents. @DrRPNishank should lend a helping hand in orienting students in #SriAurobindo's socio-political worldview culminating in #WorldUnion and #FiveDreams

Veda is a repulsive and retrograde word for many but in the context of Sri Aurobindo it doesn't mean mastering the whole text. Understanding that Indra is the lord of Indriyas (senses) and thus Indra stands for mind is enough. Then all other terms fall into place; new world opens

Modernity allows to disagree and hold alternative views. Even faiths based on pre-modern texts are to be respected. But thankfully The Mother & Sri Aurobindo provide a robust new worldview and nothing matches it in vision and sophistication. #SavitriEra indisputably is the future

2020 has seen a decipherable surge among the young to read Sri Aurobindo. Once you develop a mild appreciation for him, a lifelong love affair begins. But one thing should be made clear. Engaging with Sri Aurobindo amounts to entering a new religion; conversion is slow and steady

PR by definition is dishonest and manipulative; yet modern society is heavily reliant upon it. Peer review is one method to check hyperbole but not foolproof. Selective amnesia is another intellectual crime. Insinuation is like backstabbing; what Ashish Nandy did to Sri Aurobindo

I keep on repeating that we have no right to add or subtract anything from what The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have left behind. Many of their formulations may seem impossible but the responsibility is theirs. Similarly, the entry point for each person is different from the other one

Catering to popular sentiments, Sri Aurobindo used to quote Gita and the Upanishads but later he shifted to the Veda. Western tradition lacks this source and therefore in every philosophical writing one finds the author shuttling among Kant, Plato, Socrates, Gospel, Homer, et al.

Evolutionary task of transcending present imperfections is the basic concern of Sri Aurobindo while ethics is the be all and end all of Western discourse. Thus, politics and economics are potent instruments for any large human action necessary to steer Evolutionary inevitability.

Grasp on Bengal's history since Chaitanya is necessary to understand the significance of Sri Aurobindo's agenda. Even the lack of Development is a profound philosophical issue which is far from being settled. Poetry and music have scoured heaven and earth and the quest continues.

Academic studies are disproportionately dependent upon published works but a person might be drastically different from what he wrote. His views may be polar opposite after a passage of time. He might appear perfectly humble in his book but turns out to be a vicious troll in SM.
Yes, that's the other side of the picture like the dark side of the moon. Now that podcasts and webinars are multiplying, capturing what's spoken in print has become an additional challenge. Though published they are not searchable. So archiving or retrieval poses a huge problem.

RW journals have published thousands of articles but no proper appraisal of their worth can be found. In the absence of critical assessment, quality is difficult to maintain. There's also a lack of competent neutral voices. So, promoting healthy criticism is vital for excellence.

It has become quite respectable to say my blood boils but a civil society has no place for it. Dialogue is the only way and decent language has no substitute. Flouting it is easy but consequences follow. So following the middle path or golden mean is necessary instead of extremes

Just because someone has written a book on Justice, he can't be adjudged as an embodiment of justice and fair play. He can be partisan and obstinate in his verdicts. Thus, telling the right thing is important but we don't find many such voices in the present polarised atmosphere.

Following Sri Aurobindo means being part of a collective yoga. Collaboration with Evolution is automatic. Reading his books is not merely an intellectual activity but pressing levers of Evolutionary trajectory. Unseen implications are much more than what one performs voluntarily.

Sri Aurobindo rescues the later from clutches of sectarian organised religions and puts it under universal, voluntary, & collaborative Yoga.
[The Unknown is not the Unknowable; it need not remain the unknown for us, unless we choose ignorance or persist in our first limitations.]

While celebrating #ARYA100Years (1914-21), it needs to be remembered that every phase of politics in the past has its own meaning and significance. So, there's no point in blaming; each faction has contributed but we are moving towards a grand harmony in line with #SriAurobindo's

A gigantic opportunity but humanity hasn't been able to frame the right questions during the last seven months. Development, Environment, and Education need overhaul but no well thought out policies are in sight. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo provide excellent guidance on this score

Any branch of Sri Aurobindo's writings requires a lifetime but acquiring the essence of Sri Aurobindo isn't very difficult.
1. The Veda is symbolic. So Rituals are redundant,
2. Religions are political. Yoga is volitional;
3. Mind has evolved with time. Supermind will replace it.

This is the age of Management and AI but I keep on repeating that no one can surpass Sri Aurobindo in strategy or nothing can overtake #SriAurobindo as a brand. Just recognise this and see how you can benefit in pure material terms. #ARYA100Years (1914-21) should trigger a surge.

Democracy in embryonic form was introduced in India in 1909 and it remains a guided one till this day. RSS is the midwife at present and such an arrangement can't be said to be totally unhealthy. Democracy itself being a theoretical construct, how it evolves has its own validity.

Savitri Era is not to wallow in the shallow knowledge of the past but to wake up to the luminous future inaugurated by The Mother & Sri Aurobindo. It's an open invitation without any conditions. No initiation, no rituals, no fixed system of practice. Leap from the Veda to SAVITRI

Leftist scholars left out events in history and many intellectual outputs from their books in a arbitrary manner just to conform to their political ideology. In the process they inflicted irreparable damage to academics. How soon that can be reversed? Hindutva shouldn't repeat it

Ethics is not the monopoly of any party or any nation. Problem is this partisanship where one side claims righteousness. Defending a good cause in a bad way spoils everything. Deliberately twisting an argument or erecting a strawman is dishonest. Whataboutery, scapegoating common

Please don't tag me in copy & paste tweets. Requesting all to write in own words so that there's some value addition. It also makes the tweet interesting for others to read. Some effort-courage is needed and there's no dearth of material to write about The Mother & Sri Aurobindo.

Sri Aurobindo pleading for Cripps Mission in 1942 is an interesting episode. He knew it won't succeed yet tried his best. Working out through ignorance is an important formula; not to force results. Present happenings need to be seen in that light. Spotting who's right is crucial

Major organisations like RKM, RSS, Congress, and Arya Samaj never encouraged their members to read Sri Aurobindo's books. A whole generation has suffered due to this. So Marxists are not the only one to blame. Mainstream journalists too played a role in blacking out Sri Aurobindo

Political compulsion has forced the present regime to take a moderate line but ideologically they are nowhere near Sri Aurobindo. So it's incumbent upon the Savitri Erans to highlight the future vision of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo. #ARYA100Years (1914-21) #FiveDreams #WorldUnion

Instant communication is so common today but the local is getting more and more strengthened. Be it festivals, music, or language, people residing far away from each other are finding identification in the local. Despite all kinds of fusion and hybridisation, the local is reborn.

In certain professions like teaching or journalism, intellectual content is likely to invade one's life. In such cases, Sri Aurobindo's writings prove to be an anchor as well as a constant touchstone. To maintain that demarcation consciously can be the most perfect form of yoga.

Odisha has a long history of being a melting pot of diverse religions and schools of Darshana. Significantly, #SriAurobindo's philosophy has the largest following and mass penetration in Odisha now. Ordinary persons being aware of Evolution and SAVITRI is not a small achievement.

Very nicely explained but I have one doubt. One shouldn't meddle in the internal affairs of two countries. Too much of involvement with the politics of previous country is against the ethical need of being concerned with the new country. Hope you agree.

Jainism has ancient roots in Odisha but Buddhism which grew as a fictional imitation of it is attracting more attention. #Jagannath cult is also being aggressively pushed as original, authentic, and most representative of #Odisha's past. Intellectual honesty needed to face truth.

Involvement of women in rituals and commensurate socialising advantages are a big bulwark of organised religions. Indoctrination of children too is a corollary. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo challenging this grand alliance is a civilisational breakthrough. Rationality will vanquish.

No man ever steps in the same river twice, said Heraclitus. Modi follows that and the idiom, Never looked back. He never repeats and always draws his agenda anew. Every morning is a new morning. So the word policy with its going round and round connotations is meaningless for him

I'm so grounded that I have no wings but if at all leaning right is perceived, then it's better as #SeeAright
Similarly, if science is incapable of accommodating the futuristic Cosmological framework of Sri Aurobindo, then let's call it #Lighnce
Key is Evolution,
Open invitation.
