ଅନ୍ୟଜଣେ ଜେପିଦାସ । ତାଙ୍କର ବହିମଧ୍ୟ ଜ୍ଞାନବର୍ଦ୍ଧକ

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!
