Transformatory paradigm of 1914

 Collated X posts in original by Tusar Nath Mohapatra (b. 1956), President, Savitri Era Party (2007) and Founder Savitri Era Religion (2006) 

It's undeniable that India has lost respect during the Modi tenure. While he was trying his best to act as a seasoned statesman through his costumes, lack of intellectual muscle was apparent. The ideology his party represents is medieval and obscurantist. The lost ten years, alas!

I don't agree that Modi is autocratic or megalomaniac by nature. He used these methods to gain supremacy in the party. Indira Gandhi had to split Congress. Modi was in a similar situation and rivals were many. But not addressing a press conference spread his image as an ignorant.

Like Indira Gandhi, he tried to draw power directly from the people by bypassing the party. He showed that he is not accountable to media. All part of image build up. But when ennui sets in and fatigue occurs, votes also dry up. Perhaps that stage has arrived thanks to democracy.

This is the fourth revolution I'm witnessing. I supported and worked for the JP movement. I also supported the nationwide campaign of V.P. Singh. I had supported Kejriwal's agitation for a while. Present electoral fight for unseating Modi, accentuated by DR's videos, is momentous. 

Congress has started pondering over ideology and seems willing to rectify past mistakes of eclipsing many streams of thought. Still neither Congress nor Hindutva can be relied upon for a right kind of narrative. Savitri Era Party is trying to incorporate Sri Aurobindo's viewpoint. 

Many educated Indians have wasted precious years of their lives by chasing the mirage of Hindutva ideology. They should rethink their priorities in the wake up electoral loss. Savitri Era Religion (2006) and Savitri Era Party (2007) are right avenues for all with modern mentality. 

Reading the books of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo gives clarity on things and raises the quality of one's perception. Old narratives start fading and new possibilities open up. Savitri Era Party has been offering this alternative since 2007 and many have benefited from its campaign. 

Sri Aurobindo was missing in the school text books as a result of which two three generations couldn't know about him. Media coverage of him too was negligible. Books and journal articles never quoted him. Politicians were totally unaware of him. But I know for the last 60 years.

Sri Aurobindo shouldn't be compared with Vivekananda, Tagore, Subhas, or Gandhi. Nor with Ambedkar, Savarkar, Lohia, or Periyar. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo are the one Supreme Divine without any connection with any past religion or philosophy. Worshipping other gods is forbidden.

Unlike the Socialists, Communists in India were against the castes. But, interestingly, they have been together in fighting BJP which took up the Hindu plank. Thus, Mandal vs Kamandal war continues. Besides, BJP couldn't enrol the secular and liberal section of Hindus of Congress. 

Sri Aurobindo wrote The Life Divine when uncertainty and incompleteness were in vogue through Quantum physics. They also crept into philosophy through Deconstruction and postmodernism. The evolutionary schema of Sri Aurobindo is also open ended but it's firm on Harmony as outcome. 

The basic principle is our equality as human beings and citizens of a democratic country. Spreading hatred against others in the pretext of some tribalism can't have a better validity. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo represent human unity and world peace. Following them can transform.

Two books of Sri Aurobindo are very important. They are, The Life Divine and The Synthesis of Yoga. It's not necessary to understand the content but just reading them page after page can bring a very different kind of experience. Many don't believe in spirituality but it changes.

Many devotees of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo feel that politics is dirty but to vote for the right party is also a responsibility. I have been making it clear that Hindutva is opposed to our ideal and authoritarian tendencies of Modi are anti-democratic in nature. Change is needed. 

After many years, this lane in front of our flat saw some repairs. May be due to elections.

This may not be the first election to be fought on social media but the rise of the YouTube channels as the voice of the opposition has been phenomenal. Their growth has been organic and in a fiercely competitive environment. Alternative viewpoints are indispensable for democracy. 

Economic issues are more dominant in this election than emotional issues like religion. Secondly, the threat to Constitution has become a significant talking point. BJP has atrophied by being enamelled by Modi who has no worthwhile qualities except acting. Let's pray for a new PM. 

Savitri Era Religion is a global phenomenon. Countless people worldwide have been inspired by The Mother & Sri Aurobindo and their direct disciples who were both scholars as well as devotees. Savitri Era Party too doesn't insist on borders when seeking human unity and world peace. 

The philosophy of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo shouldn't be identified with Ashram, its branch in Delhi, or different Centres. Each place has some good features but also some undesirable aspects. So learning from books is the best way in this path. Lots of videos also are available. 

In the ontology of Sri Aurobindo, the world and all that is happening in the flow of time are seamlessly Divine. History, therefore, has evolutionary significance. But when it comes to yoga, willful forgetting has many advantages. In politics too selective amnesia is a necessity.

Followers of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo don't have read the traditional Sanskrit texts or books of Western philosophy. The Secret of the Veda is the most original contribution of Sri Aurobindo which needs to be digested by all Indians. Mythology and rituals are rendered outdated.

Congress had corrupted the minds of people in the last century and Hindutva has corrupted the minds of the people in this century. Following The Mother & Sri Aurobindo and reading their books is the only way for acquiring the right worldview and narrative.

Apart from the Partition, the Constitution of India divided the country into two factions of citizens. The Scheduled Castes and Tribes and the rest of the people. India can never become a modern nation unless everyone is entitled to equal treatment. Creamy layer shouldn't benefit. 

Everyone is an expert on Advaita Vedanta. They are also aware of Kashmir Shaivism. But reading The Life Divine of Sri Aurobindo can teach much more than the traditional commentators. Understanding the inner significance of Veda is also crucial for a complete ontological picture.

Political philosophy and politics are two different arenas. Theoretically all sorts of ethics can be signalled but in practice things don't work out that way. The reason being involvement of human beings who are work in process. Sri Aurobindo's yoga and spirituality is a catalyst. 

Elections are entertainment too. Saw thousands of people on both sides of the road as a roadshow was underway. Massive mobilisation of people. Money and power hold the sway and not any independent judgement of an individual. So, to call it as the wisdom of the crowd is debatable.

Ramdev and Kejriwal's agitations prepared the ground for Modi's ascent. Riots and Mayawati's division of votes in UP enabled him to become the Prime Minister. So the mandate was not earned by him. But greatness of Hindutva throwing such a person for the top post is disappointing.

Savitri Era Party respects Western philosophy and the Enlightenment values that have shaped the Indian Constitution. The history of democracy as a Western product is also of paramount importance. It also appreciates Bengal Renaissance for creating the foundations of modern India.

Savitri Era Religion is the most suitable religion for the future. The philosophy of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo provides the best intellectual and emotional satisfaction. Worshipping them as the one Supreme Divine is the best protection from the tyranny of mythology and rituals.

Hindutva supporters don't recognise the preeminence of Sri Aurobindo and always try to show him as one among many others. They also don't give any importance to The Mother. Savitri Era Religion and Savitri Era Party endeavour to rectify such a narrative by establishing uniqueness. 

As it's becoming more and more clear that Congress will be a part of the next govt at the Centre, Savitri Era Party is buffeted by mixed feelings. While riddance from Hindutva and Modi is a great relief, there's nothing to expect from Dynasty vis-à-vis The Mother & Sri Aurobindo.

Hindutva has many voices and different ideological nuaces are being added continuously. But unfortunately there's no systematic presentation of the ideas or any authorised version of its vision. Absence of competent scholars and lack of foundational books makes it a free for all.

Sri Aurobindo's writings are full of intellectual stimuli in different disciplines of Humanities. So, academic scrutiny of his ideas will continue. But the role of devotees is different. Knowing various implications of his philosophy is important, but it's subordinate to loyalty.

Followers of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo suffer from a lot of confusion and, hence, are unable to express their opinions freely on this platform. My posts don't have much reach as a result of which people are wallowing in their own ignorance. Some pose as scholars without reading.

There was no Internet and there was no money to buy books. Going to listen to a lecture were few and far between. A few periodicals were there which satisfied the intellectual hunger. Now all books are available online but people are reluctant to read. Genuine appreciation absent. 

So many people put all their eggs in Modi's basket. They thought he would be there for ever but when the chickens come home to roost, it will leave a bad taste in their mouths. Irrespective of the outcome of the elections BJP has undergone transformation during the last one month. 

Many Hindutva hardliners have been criticising Modi and, in that sense, Modi can be considered as a liberal. But his one man show for building charisma has created an atmosphere of autocracy. There's no other formula for winning elections and, hence, political dynasties flourish.

The theory that Gandhi represents the aspirations of most Indians is wrong. Savitri Era Party (2007) has been opposing AAP, BJP, and Congress on firm ideological grounds. Following The Mother & Sri Aurobindo is the only way for fruition of #FiveDreams broadcast on August 14, 1947. 

The most essential book to know Sri Aurobindo is, Twelve Years with Sri Aurobindo by Nirodbaran. His other books are Sri Aurobindo's Humour, Sri Aurobindo for All Ages, Sri Aurobindo - A dream-dialogue with children, and Memorable Contacts with The Mother.

Many here exhibit exemplary creativity and confidence but lack an equally sound ideology. Most Indians haven't read Sri Aurobindo's books leading to an intellectual anaemia. Savitri Era Party (2007) has been recommending the right ideological formulation based on his #FiveDreams.

Political parties work for their own interests but analysts and intellectuals offering patently partisan opinions is not conducive to a vibrant civil society. Universities are cauldron of freedom of expression but how to distill truth and objectivity is also their responsibility.

Around a dozen channels are predicting Modi's downfall although there's no empirical data to support. Young leaders in UP and Bihar seem to have an edge. These two States will decide the results. But the Dynasty has many demerits and, therefore, running a coalition won't be easy.

When Mamata Banerjee accused the monks of BSS, RKM, and ISKCON for indulging in politics, it must have some truth. It's unfortunate that many devotees of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo are supporters of Modi. Savitri Era Party has been showing the right political direction since 2007. 

I was born in a Hindu family but developed distaste for mythology and rituals from an early age. After knowing about The Mother & Sri Aurobindo in 1964, I accepted them as god. For legal purposes, I started Savitri Era Religion in 2006. Also formed the Savitri Era Party in 2007.

Most people are busy with their careers and social relations which tend to mould their philosophical or spiritual orientations. But followers and devotees of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo need to take care not to be swayed by popular sentiments. Not to worship other gods, essential.

All this seems to be an ad campaign for the car! 

Many Hindutva supporters feel relaxed now as the chance of being relieved from carrying the Modi burden during the last twelve years brighten. Many had very high hopes of India achieving glory on a Hindu template but that has been proved false. So time to return to Sri Aurobindo.

Development is a valid political goal but from the evolutionary ontological view competing with other nations in economic or military terms may not be an assured enterprise. The same is true for Varna diversity or disparity. Reading Sri Aurobindo’s explanations can clarify doubts. 

Karma is an important theme in both The Life Divine and Savitri. Even The Problem of Rebirth remained incomplete and unrevised. So deriving any firm view on it from Sri Aurobindo is difficult. Thus the only dependable thesis is Exclusive concentration or The logic of the Infinite. 

This election gives a good indication that the 20th century history has scarce relevance today. New ideologies and priorities have to be forged in view of the changed circumstances. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo, however, had foreseen such a transformatory paradigm way back in 1914.

YouTube news is flourishing due to the elections and, especially, because there is no conspicuous wave for any side. So, it's a field day for speculations with spices like RSS withdrawal thrown in. The kind of crowds seen in UP and Bihar is not possible without RSS participation.

Savitri Era Religion, which believes in The Mother & Sri Aurobindo as the one Supreme Divine, has millions of devotees all over the world. Savitri is an epic by Sri Aurobindo which deals with the futuristic theme of conquering death. The Life Divine by him predicts social harmony. 

Democracy is a good thing. The idea of people electing their ruler is highly comforting. But the modalities of election process is not that innocent. The system of addressing huge rallies amounts to performance and logistics on industrial scale. Electronic or digital media better. 

Prapatti was instrumental for dissemination of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo’s philosophy throughout Odisha which boasts of thousands of Centres today. When I came to Bhubaneswar for College studies, I got to attend many meetings w.r.t. Birth Centenary celebrations of Sri Aurobindo.

My mother tongue and medium of instruction being Odia, I haven't read, practically, any text in Sanskrit. Grounding in Sri Aurobindo’s writings rendered all that's available in Sanskrit redundant. Thus Sanskrit is dispensable in the modern environment. One can learn Odia, instead.

Bengali educated persons can be appreciative of European languages but are indifferent towards Odia. Hindi songs are widely appreciated in Bengal but not an iota of sympathy for Odia music. The popular Rangabati song has been remade in Bengali instead of enjoying the original.

With access to Web, I started Savitri Era Learning Forum (SELF) in 2005, when online coverage of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo was poor. I also launched Savitri Era Religion (2006) and Savitri Era Party (2007) to give a formal identity to an alternative narrative running since 1914.

Sri Aurobindo wrote The Life Divine and The Human Cycle for understanding the world intellectually. I have been interpreting current affairs in this light under the banner of Savitri Era Party since 2007. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo represent human unity and harmony and not hatred. 

Sri Aurobindo has explained seven types of ignorance and not reading his books can be considered as the eighth category. They can be forgiven; "but thrice woe to them" who have read but, deliberately, try to misinterpret to suit their political preference.

Events are divine intervention

 Collated X posts in original by Tusar Nath Mohapatra

Savitri Era: Sri Aurobindo's philosophy took a decisive turn

Collated X posts in original by Tusar Nath Mohapatra (b. 1956), President, Savitri Era Party (2007) and Founder, Savitri Era Religion (2006), SRA-102-C, Shipra Riviera, Indirapuram, Ghaziabad, UP

India must be reclaimed as belonging to its people and not any one religion or caste. Savitri Era Party follows the philosophy of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo which teaches universality and harmony. Both Marxist and Hindutva narratives need to be thrown out.

Savitri Era Religion worships The Mother & Sri Aurobindo as the one Supreme Divine and believes that all past religions based on mythology and rituals are going to collapse. Reading The Secret of the Veda clarifies why spirituality and adventure of consciousness are evolutionary.

Many erudite people will attribute the downslide of BJP to its neglect of core Hindutva issues but a more rigorous intellectual scrutiny would point to the direction of Sri Aurobindo. BJP did exactly the same as Congress to Sri Aurobindo and his #FiveDreams. Consequences follow!

June 4 will end all the fun and hence now is the time for all speculation and wishful thinking. Modi evidently has forfeited his right to be the PM through his spiteful utterances. BJP may choose a Bengali as the next PM if it comes to power. Nitish Kumar can hold INDIA together.

Good reading material can shape mind. So the first step is to avoid Vivekananda. Then resisting to read R.C. Majumdar, Ram Swarup, Sita Ram Goel, or Arun Shourie is necessary. One can start with a book on Sri Aurobindo by Roshen Dalal. The Secret of the Veda by him is a must read. 

Follow The Mother & Sri Aurobindo and join Savitri Era Party. That's the best way to serve the country. Reading their philosophy amounts to collaborating with evolutionary force for descent of Supramental consciousness. This is one field where India can show the path to the world. 

Ambedkar is a renowned intellectual but he had no chance of reading Sri Aurobindo. His followers, consequently, are ignorant of Sri Aurobindo. Savarkar, similarly, was indifferent towards Sri Aurobindo, and as a result, his admirers are driving the country in the wrong direction.

After Modi fiasco, Hindutva will implode. Its intellectuals are already in disarray. No concrete benefits can be shown to have been achieved. The image of India has gone down drastically as espousing medieval obscurantism. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo are the savior in such a case.

Lakhs of people have been misled during the last two decades. Savitri Era Learning Forum (SELF) has been active since 2005 to correct the Marxist and Hindutva narratives. The philosophy of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo aims at Vedic evolutionary immortality.

The Mother & Sri Aurobindo are the one Supreme Divine and are unrelated to any past system of mythology or philosophy. Even, their own writings and conversations don't adequately explain their divinity, but the faith and devotion of their followers has been a growing phenomenon.

BJP can perform much better if Modi resigns and a new leader executes course correction. Otherwise, Modi is helping Dynasty to capture power. Modi should realise that his shelf life has expired and people are being repulsed by the foul odour. No one can be PM forever and he won't

Savitri Era Religion is obliged to him for his illuminating verdict in the Auroville case. [A Marxist in the Supreme Court: Justice Chinnappa Reddy]

Savitri Era Religion is meant for all those who worship The Mother & Sri Aurobindo as the one Supreme Divine and refrain from paying obeisance to other gurus or gods and goddesses. Savitri Era Party however is for all who oppose AAP, BJP, and Congress and resist Hindutva and Left. 

All available indications suggest exit of Modi. That would be a great development for Indian democracy. Brazen promotion of personality cult coupled with blind sycophancy by educated people has become a blot on image of modern India. Savitri Era Party has been demanding two terms

All life is yoga means all life is a constant and continuous search for spirituality. Each one's path and pace are different. One learns from, and grows with, all kinds of circumstances. Following The Mother & Sri Aurobindo, under Savitri Era Religion, forms a dependable anchor.

Watching videos on The Mother & Sri Aurobindo has become common but reading their books has multifarious advantages. Even holding a book is better than reading online. Strong intellectual development and critical reasoning is important in this path. That's being a fit instrument.

Crimes can be investigated but the sociological dimensions, in all their hues, should also receive adequate interrogation. That's where Humanities scholars are important and not the outrage types. A step further would be to consult the yogic insights of Sri Aurobindo, his poetry.

RSS justifiably is more aligned to RKM than The Mother & Sri Aurobindo. Savitri Era Religion is drastically different from the priorities of Hindutva. In The Secret of the Veda, Sri Aurobindo has explained the futility of mythology and rituals. A must read

With his crude remarks towards a section of the citizens, Modi has downgraded himself considerably. Sri Aurobindo wrote The Human Cycle and The Ideal of Human Unity to describe the kind of future he is interested in. Savitri Era Party invites all to follow

Many learned persons fight for Hindutva and India but unfortunately they haven't read Sri Aurobindo's books. They also find fault with other religions. In his The Synthesis of Yoga, Sri Aurobindo has shown the commonality of different spiritual traditions.

Supreme Court awarding added legitimacy to marriage rituals is ridiculous. It should favour modernity and invoke Sri Aurobindo for understanding the hollowness of rituals and the institution of priests. Lifestyle choices should be free from the stranglehold of outdated religions.

Google News has become staid. Shuffling of stories is very poor. YouTube rather has become a more vibrant informer of news and analyses. A system of showing latest uploads instead of highest viewed can make it more dependable. But misleading captions are a big nuisance in YouTube. 

Any theorising on Indian politics should consider Indians as Indians and not merely Hindus. That's the basic flaw.

Sure, Dear Emperor! Godspeed!

Reading wrong books can corrupt your mind and corrode your intelligence. Listening to provocative podcasts can rob you of sanity by turning into a fanatic. Earning a sound background in the philosophy of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo therefore is the safest course for young Indians.

Should be forgiven as experiment with truth of the age of Internet.

Philosophy helps to understand the macro view as against the immediate street view. Empirical evidence therefore is not a sure guide for arriving at the truth. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo exhorted to open towards the inner reality of things and the interconnectedness of our lives.

When Sri Aurobindo was deeply involved in political activities, The Mother was receiving guidance in occultism from Max Théon in Tlemcen, Algeria. Sri Aurobindo had left Kolkata in 1910 and The Mother came to Puducherry to meet him on March 29, 1914. Savitri Era Religion was born. 

I don't know how far your diagnosis is accurate but your desire for Peace seems to be sincere. I don't have any solution to offer but since I have read the books of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo I believe strongly that they alone are the solution. They have clearly predicted Harmony. 

Modi promoted personal aura as he understands well that BJP on its own is not capable of capturing power. He won elections with the help of unusual circumstances but today almost everyone in BJP is against him. Further, he prefers defeat to anyone else from BJP becoming the PM.

All political parties and different religions are championing their own narratives. Savitri Era Party and Savitri Era Religion, similarly, have very clear agenda. Indians must understand that there is no other way of achieving harmony than following The Mother & Sri Aurobindo.

Adding Sri to the name of Sri Aurobindo is as important as mentioning The Mother before his name since both are the one Supreme Divine. Looking at him from the political or historical perspective is less important than his adventure of consciousness or quest for Vedic immortality. 

When a Chief Minister allowed a mob to forcibly demolish a Masjid, the Constitution of India got demolished. Similarly, when a Chief Minister was arrested on presumptive crimes, the Judiciary was demolished. Citing mythology for ethics has no meaning if such instances perpetuate.

Those who are most concerned about diversity are also very particular about their own ecosystem. So, ultimately, it's about human nature, self-interest, and tribal instincts. Ideologies based primarily on socioeconomic issues can't be successful since the evolutionary aim differs. 

Every detail of Sri Aurobindo's life has been documented and published. Many books have already been written on him. So, what do you want now? One has to accept him as he was and not judge him on the basis of some imaginary template.

The Mother & Sri Aurobindo stressed on evolution as a means for a better future thereby ending the debate on existence of god. The Hegelian concept of time and history got its due justification. A new teleology and panpsychism took root. The Vedic aim of immortality was rekindled. 

Having lived under the rule of all Prime Ministers, I rate V.P. Singh as the best. As the nation goes for the Third phase of Lok Sabha polls today, let's pray for a new Prime Minister who matches his ethics and compassion. A person from grassroots without any false metanarrative.

The Mother & Sri Aurobindo are the one Supreme Divine who have been giving an intellectual as well as political alternative since 1914. Indians must understand its significance and evolutionary inevitability and apply it in all spheres of life. Current leaders are ignorant of it.

India has been suffering since 1990 in the wake of the temple movement. The best ideology to counter Hindutva is Sri Aurobindo. But neither the Congress nor the Dalits realise this truth as a result of which BJP manages to hoodwink the people. Savitri Era Party spreads awareness.

@bijli @Krupakar_m @RupaSubramanya @nilanjanaroy So the solution is to go for self-study of Sri Aurobindo's works whatever one's profession.

Coming in contact with The Mother & Sri Aurobindo's teachings sixty years back was like a revolution. The changing landscape of life through its various phases hasn't dented that feeling. Today when we are listening about AI so much, Supramental consciousness seems more relevant.

End of Modi rule will also be the end of Hindutva and he will be remembered for sabotaging it. Young persons will no longer fall prey to the propaganda machine of RSS. Let's hope that genuine interest in Sri Aurobindo develops and mere economic issues don't dominate our politics.

It's unfortunate that Sam Pitroda is being criticised on flimsy grounds. Anyone can notice the resemblances that he talked about and people don't understand that taking umbrage rather amounts to being racist. In any case Savitri Era Party has been demanding Sovereignty for States. 

I'm from Odisha and in the family we discuss that we look like the Chinese, to some extent. I don't know how it's insulting to my existence. When I came to Delhi, I found the physical appearance of the people here to be drastically different. I thought it may be due to Alexander!

To say that Modi is megalomaniac and narcissistic in nature may not be accurate since he used these strategies for capturing power and eliminating his rivals and adversaries in party. His campaign was modelled on Obama and he knew the power of optics well. Political compulsions!

Many in the Hindutva camp are happy. They are good at criticism but their own govt provided very little scope. When an INDIA govt becomes a reality on June 4, they can go hammer and tongs. Whining and lambasting is what they can do so well. But after Modi, BJP is going to split.

Hindutva has been a threat since 1990, but became widely acceptable due to Kulkarni Doctrine. Modi, however, has emerged as an independent threat. His comparison to Fascism or Hitler may be unfair but his style of functioning and language is abhorrent. His exit is a great relief.

A general misconception is that all religions or philosophies are the same. There might be some truth in it but to ignore all new streams may not be prudent. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have created a new path for the whole mankind which all politicians should follow. #SavitriEra

So many have identified Modi with India, Hindutva, or BJP so much that they feel crestfallen. It's like an After Nehru who? moment. Now that he is going in a month, RSS ecosystem is working hard on a best scenario situation. It will certainly want to keep Dynasty out. So Kejriwal

Savitri Era Party (2007) is opposed to AAP, BJP, and Congress. Savitri Era Religion (2006) worships The Mother & Sri Aurobindo as the one Supreme Divine. Savitri Era Learning Forum (SELF - 2005) has been striving for propagating Sri Aurobindo's philosophy which is unparalleled.

Only the followers of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo are aware of the significance of evolution vis-à-vis current affairs or history. Secular or rational approach is to look at events as determined by human beings but a devotee of Savitri Era Religion takes it as divine intervention.

Election results can go either way and speculations will continue till June 4. Defeating Modi is good for democracy and the country. Interestingly, it's also good for BJP. Demolishing the painstakingly cultivated Modi cult through a fiercely fought election will be a good lesson.

BJP and RSS love to highlight emotional issues more than the economic ones. But Modi attempted to replace all other issues by putting himself at the centre of people's emotions. Unfortunately, this leveraging ensued from the violence unleashed in 2002. So, a change is inevitable.

Attributing the cause of one's own difficulties to some other person, gender, caste, religion, or nation is an easy and lazy solution. The more complex philosophical reason as explained by The Mother & Sri Aurobindo is that each one's position is as scripted in the evolutionary play.

Many express misgivings about Sri Aurobindo being the greatest teacher or philosopher. Resolving this problem is not possible without reading the 36 volumes of The Complete Works of Sri Aurobindo.

Besides, Collected Works of the Mother and Mother's Agenda are there.
