Savitri is key to Human Unity

Tweets 5 hrs - Savitri Era Party @SavitriEraParty The Human Cycle (1st Edition, November, 1949) by Sri Aurobindo far surpasses the Enlightenment ideals envisaged in the Indian Constitution. 6 hrs The Postscript Chapter to The Ideal of Human Unity (2nd Edition, April, 1950) constitutes the most evocative pronouncement by Sri Aurobindo. 6 hrs A new future for the nation is right here with Sri Aurobindo as the fulcrum and Savitri, the ethical anchor and pivot for a new world order. 6 hrs Savitri is the new Veda authored by Sri Aurobindo for the modern world in which all scriptures as well as all cultures find their own echo. 6 hrs The epic, Savitri by Sri Aurobindo offers a roller-coaster adventure from pre-history to remote-future that is steeped in utmost aesthetics. 7 hrs Savitri admittedly is difficult to understand but the sound of its words serve as a springboard for diving deep into Sri Aurobindo's thought. 8 hrs Reciting a page from Savitri by Sri Aurobindo at random everyday is an assured means of finding the meaning of esoteric dimensions of life.

Scripting fruition of the Postscript

At about the same time when the Constituent Assembly was busy giving a final shape to the Constitution of India in 1949 in Delhi, Sri Aurobindo applied himself to writing in Puducherry - barely a year before his passing away - an elaborate justification for establishment of World Union, his Third Dream. Admittedly, one of his last and most profound pronouncements on a patently political topic, A Postscript Chapter constitutes a vision and a prophecy in international relations that might seem too remote at the moment but the logic of which is assuming an ever increasing certitude day by day. The question now is whether some ground level machinery for facilitating the fruition of such a grand idea is in operation at present. [TNM55]

Thought matters

Amod Lele writes, “for Marx it was always the case that matter matters.” This may be true so far as “commodity fetishism” is concerned, but to “understand that physical world” entails theorizing which is not strictly matter. Philosophy of immanence, though immanent by definition, has transcendental ramifications. This is, perhaps, the reason  why Joshua Ramey’s book on Deleuze has set the cat among the pigeons. [TNM55]

The Mother served an ultimatum on the West on March 6, 1914

When The Mother boarded Kaga Maru on March 6, 1914 in order to meet a bearded recluse in Puducherry, she served an ultimatum on the West. A private voyage; but verily a gigantic leap for the mankind. From then on, the course of history can, as well, be said to be a series of disjointed-seeming footnotes to her agenda. Sri Aurobindo occupies the Centre of Gravity of the whole humanity now. Neither politics nor economics, neither philosophy nor literature can move any further by ignoring him. What The Mother dreamt of a century back is taking shape in a way that is largely unseen. The palette of human thought and action is being remoulded and reconfigured continually for the new creation to coagulate. “If this is she of whom the world has heard, Wonder no more at any happy change.” Pranams at her lotus feet.

Only two are with us today

Anilbaran’s bio is too sketchy; can we dig up more information please. In him we find the combination of philosophy and politics and hence his relevance and inspiration for dealing with the situation in the country today is compelling. [TNM55]

“On 20.10.70, Mother nominated a Working Committee of twelve: Pradyot, Udar, Shyam Sunder, Kireet, Nirod, Andre', Madhav, Madanlal Himatsingka, Chhote Narayan, Prapatti, Manoj Das and Charupada” for Sri Aurobindo's Action (Down memory lane - Page 61, Shyam Sunder Jhunjhunwala, 1996). Only two are with us today but the camps they have chosen to serve presently is extremely unfortunate. [TNM55]
