... India, where he was the onsite architect for the first reinforced concrete building in that country and became one of the first disciples of Sri Aurobindo.

Sure. I just want to reiterate that I’m deeply saddened that after following me here for years even someone as sane as you has fallen prey to online polarisation so much so that you think I of all people and trying to save face for BJP. I think political analysis can and....
...should more enlightening than the polarisation between “Modi is evil” and “Modi is god”. The speed of social media is making us all very boring people. Once upon a time we were not like this. propaganda. Such dogmatism is found in left and right alike. It prevents us from understanding the reality and seeing the big picture.

Earlier, we judged on impressions, projections, and prejudices but now enough of pure data to base our views otherwise all future scrutinies will be skewed. This is incumbent upon all those who are independent.

For our new series, contributors read Joan Scott's "Sex and Secularism" alongside Sara Farris's "In the Name of Women's Rights" to prepare for a broad conversation about sex, gender, religion, nationalism, secularism, neoliberalism, and the public sphere.

Here’s my list of books this summer—some new and some not-so-new—in @Openthemag Includes books by Ryszard Legutko, @PatrickDeneen @ahsanib David Miller and more...

Another "wow" from S.Prasannarajan. Mark Lilla, himself a disillusioned liberal, says that liberals ‘are losing because they have retreated into caves they have carved for themselves in the side of what once was a great mountain.’ They have become evangelists. ‘The difference is this: evangelism is about speaking truth to power. Politics is about seizing power to defend the truth.’

Yogi Aurobindo's esoteric interpretation of Prasthan Trayi apart, His Visionary Injunctions of the Political Life of India are bordering on the prophecies of Bhagwan Vyas in Srimad Bhagvat... We are left speechless the moment we read Mahrishi's Commentary on Indian Political Life

Of course you do moron. That's the very definition of "New Age". Your failed Avatar & his Arab lady companion cannot touch the sublime wisdom of our Vedic Acharyas & their still living Sampradayas. #apasampradayika sects are the bane of sincere Truth seekers.

I'm not a fan of trads. In Spirituality,as in any science,i firmly believe in Dynamic approach-experimentation and conclusion. To judge a person merely on whether he follows scriptures or not-isnt my approach.

Also, this whole thing on just scriptural sanctioning is borrowed from Abrahamic Religions. This happened bcoz Britishers tried to govern using Laws of the ppl of Hindusthan which acc to them meant every act must be scripturally sanctioned. This I read in Jakob De Roovers work +

You are a moron no doubt about it. All you new age Aurobindo/"Mother" freaks are ignoramuses who don't know any Shastra or follow any Dharma.

what a abhorrent statement you have made against our supreme god krishna. I don't support @AryanPaladin statement against Sri Aurbindo but you are equally guilty of profanity. I'm a proud Madhwa brahman and such statement does deride my precept

See how these Aurobindo cultists curse Bhagavan Sri Krishna who is regarded as Parabrahman by all Acharyas in favor of their false avatar & his Arab lady companion. #BrainwashedCultists

Stop yelling & start thinking. I gave u an eg of exactly the kind of flase distortions u are spreading about Sri Aurobindo & The Mother. Sri Aurobindo IS Sri Krishna. U dont have to accept it, but that is what I know. As I said before try to get a deeper understanding b4 abusing.
