Sri Aurobindo has given us an immense treasury of hope and certitude

Followers of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo are spread all over the world; belong to different religions. Their books are sold worldwide; in multiple languages. The superiority of their psychological approach to development of self-awareness and self-exceeding is increasingly being acknowledged in informed circles. Speculative philosophy has ruled the roost for two to three centuries but The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have introduced the transformational aspect by way of Integral Yoga. It also incorporates the evolutionary framework tracing its roots to the Veda. Such a synthesis is unprecedented and authentic to the core. Thus, mainstream ontological formulations have become obsolete and dominant religious worldviews have become outdated.

This poses a serious political problem since different nations are affiliated to different religions. Even those claiming as secular, nurture some affinity towards a particular religion. Thus, it's for the individuals to be a little more active to disseminate Sri Aurobindo's predictions for a sublime human destiny. Further, it's a collective yoga and it's through concerted aspiration that we can hope the Supramental force to descend upon the earth in its full manifestation. This aspect is not known to many but this is the core of our whole task. Other facets of Sri Aurobindo's versatile personality can be of interest to many but not forgetting the core job is paramount.

We are in an extraordinary situation, The Mother used to tell and it's indeed so. Strife and suffering are everywhere but Sri Aurobindo has given us an immense treasury of hope and certitude. In his clairvoyance, he said that India is free forty years before it actually happened. During the WW-II too, he was privy to the fights going on in the occult world independent of the ground. So, some human person needn't be blamed for present imperfections, that's the superficial view; grist for the mill of the news channels and newspapers. Instead of bothering too much about development and economy, therefore, being attuned to the inner communion with higher regions of consciousness is essential. There are no fixed methods; one has to choose which book to read or how to offer prayers.
