The spiritual gift of India to the world has already begun. India's spirituality is entering Europe and America in an ever increasing measure. That movement will grow; amid the disasters of the time more and more eyes are turning towards her with hope and there is even an increasing resort not only to her teachings, but to her psychic and spiritual practice. -- Sri Aurobindo (from the message broadcast on the eve of August 15, 1947)

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

Honesty, personal integrity and sacrifice

In other words, according to Dr. Elst, Indic studies by westerners during the colonial period must not always be viewed through a jaundiced political prism... Therefore, to an extent I do agree with Dr. Elst when he says that there were quite a few Indic scholars who had truly gone native and whose views on Hindus and Hinduism were far from being uncharitable.

The most exciting and polished work of scholarship I’ve seen in this new way of thinking is Andrew Nicholson’s excellent Unifying Hinduism. Nicholson’s book is a study of Vedānta, the Indian philosophical tradition that sees itself as expounding the Upaniṣads. He turns a close and critical eye on nineteenth-century scholars like Richard Garbe and A.E. Gough, pointing out their misrepresentations of Vedānta tradition and how many of those misrepresentations endure today (especially with respect to Vijñānabhikṣu, the main subject of his study). But he also points out the continuities of these Orientalists with the earlier tradition.
  1. Jeffery Long:
    This is brilliant, Amod. I am very fond of Nicholson’s work, and wrote a glowing review of Unifying Hinduism which can be found on Academia.edu. James Madaio, a PhD candidate at the University of Manchester, who presented on a DANAM panel on Swami Vivekananda at the AAR this past November (Baltimore 2013), is doing work along similar lines, showing that excessive claims about discontinuity between the Vedanta of Swami Vivekananda and “classical” Advaita Vedanta rests on identifying “classical” Advaita with Shankara and ignoring the millennium of commentarial literature linking Shankara and Vivekananda. Of course, Vivekananda was certainly an innovator in many ways (as, arguably, was Shankara). But the point is that there is both continuity and discontinuity between the contemporary tradition and what was there before. To say that Swami Vivekananda simply cobbled together his Vedanta out of western influences is at least as wrong (and wrongheaded) as to identify him simplistically with an unchanging Vedanta going back to the Upanishads. At last, we are getting some balance in this conversation!
    I made a similar point–essentially a manifesto calling for this kind of approach–in my first book, A Vision for Hinduism. But Nicholson (and Madaio) deserve the credit for actually doing the work of digging into the Sanskrit sources and making the case on solid historical grounds. Rajiv Malhotra makes a similar case in his latest book, albeit in the controversial, confrontational fashion for which he has become known. But it is an important point to make, and hopefully we are seeing yet another generational shift, where we post-Baby Boomers make another course correction toward a ‘middle path’ between the earlier generation and the radical skepticism of our more immediate forebears.
  2. Amod Lele:
    Thank you, Jeffery. Sorry I missed your comment earlier. I think we’re in agreement here. I realize that after my previous interactions with Rajiv Malhotra I now tend to cringe instinctively at the thought that I’m agreeing with him on anything, which is ironic because I share his broad goal of getting the substance of Indian traditions’ ideas taken more seriously in academia. Did you ever see this old post of mine on the topic?

“There is an important role,” Sen said, “for a clear-headed, pro-market, pro-business party that does not depend on religious politics.” ... Liberalism stresses the primacy of the individual as an economic and ethical agent -- and, therefore, emphasizes individual power and responsibility, as well as a reduced role for government in making decisions for society. But, as Kaviraj points out, one of the prominent peculiarities of India's democracy is that it was introduced to the nation without a prior historical process of social individuation, as in the West, or “a prior tradition of liberal political thought.”

AAP's guerrilla warfare: Its extraordinary tactics have brought it limited gains and more losses - Economic Times-Jan 23, 2014 By G R Gopinath, TNN 24 Jan, 2014
Being an ex-army officer, i couldn't help thinking that the Kejriwal-led AAP siege of Delhi was classic guerrilla warfare, in which a small group of combatants use military tactics including ambushes, sabotage, raids, petty warfare, hit-and-run tactics and extraordinary mobility to fight a larger and less mobile, traditional army. Guerrilla warfare usually succeeds only when the cause is just and the guerrilla leader leads his band of irregular fighters fearlessly and selflessly.

To build or not to build

Tweets: @manishkbaid: Sanghis are talking about respecting freedom fighters today.... why they opposed them when they were alive...!
@brownbrumby: The perils of learning history in RSS shakhas. *Sigh*
@AgentSaffron: Not a fan of building statues for past heroes myself. Better to spread their thoughts, information about their history.
@AgentSaffron: IMHO, thousands of crores spent on building statues will be better spent in building schools & universities to propagate ideals.
@octotus: @AgentSaffron similarly: reading about Sardar inspires us, while his statue will inspire millions of others not as gifted. @dalcheeni
@octotus: @AgentSaffron http://t.co/PSf5jL9bkO - this is my take on the Dalit park. @dalcheeni
@octotus: @AgentSaffron I had the same reservation about Mayawati's Dalit Pride parks. So, I completely understand your point. @dalcheeni
@iamnarendranath: Simple Question-If making statue is symbol of showing respect and acknowledging contribution then how Mayawati was wrong in making statues?
@prasannavishy: @iamnarendranath agree what Maya did was nothing unprecedented . architectural triumphalism common among rulers form newer power group
@Punditmusings: I have a simple rule.. anyone Modi genuinely admires ought to be terrible or has terrible secrets.
@Punditmusings: My interest in Patel was reignited the first time I heard Modi praise him. Kuchh toh gadbad hai. Aur gadbad thha . bahut.
@Punditmusings: Modi's is a vertical statue making version of Mayawati. Total megalomaniac. Big dangerous rallies, huge wasteful statues.
@Punditmusings: Building a super tall statue to undermine other leaders ..what an idiotic thinking process ...simple, it doesnt work either.
@sonaliranade: All said & done mobilizing the young for Saradar's statue is a vast improvement over mobilizing crazed mobs 4 the Ram `Temple.
@balbir_reen: Earlier enthusiast response of selling Bricks for Ayodhaya Ram Temple now they will collect money to purchase Iron to be used in statue.
@AmareshMisra: Mayawati over reached building Ambedkar statues. Led to her downfall. Similar fate  reserved for Modi following Statue of Unity campaign!
@oracle1313: @SavitriEraParty Really? Mayawati who erects those statues does not encourage herd mentality?
@SavitriEraParty: @oracle1313 The kind of empowerment and intellectual fermentation Mayawati marshals among her socially backward followers is unparalleled.
@krishnarjun108: Shourie is wrong when he depicted Ambedkar as a false God, his pen should have exposed charlatan Nehru, he picked up wrong person.
@drhpshukla: @SavitriEraParty Sri Aurobindo is an Action, a Force, not an ideology. YY, an intelligent Indian mind is responsive to cosmic divine forces.
@drhpshukla: @SavitriEraParty SA supported Gandhi and Churchil though neither was strictly responsive to what he was saying.
@drhpshukla: Not everyone who adores Sri Aurobindo is an 'Aurobindonian', e.g. Yogendra Yadav. Thousands of non-Buddhists love Buddha.
@drhpshukla: @SavitriEraParty YY is well informed about Sri Aurobindo's legacy.

Rangesh Sridhar • 9 hours ago I respect Mr Elst's works in general. I also admire his sustained support for "Hindu" causes. But, here, I will have to disagree with him. And, strongly so.

But, to extrapolate that to argue that Hindus in general Argue for "Yoga as Hindu" because they perceive it to be a Hindu way of Worship of God is incorrect… For a traditionalist perspective on this issue, I would like readers to read this piece by Mr Sarvesh Tiwari on the same subject - bharatendu.com/2011/01/02/yoga...
