Sri Aurobindo Ashram is sitting on a volcano of land scams and shady deals

Tweets Savitri Era Party @SavitriEraParty - 18h An influential section of Auroville's elitehas been complicit in this power game and is happy with the status quo. … - 18h The state of Auroville itself is highlytroubling. A complete negation of the original conception, it is verily acaricature and a betrayal. 18h Auroville must be returned to its rightfulowners. The Mother’s property has to be released from the hands of theunbelievers and atheists. 20h Sri Aurobindo Ashram responds only to theCourts or the Collector & not the general public. A public institution mustpractice transparency. 20h Visitors recall the abode of peace that theAshram is but are blissfully unaware that it is sitting on a volcano of landscams & shady deals. 20h How long the Devotees must wait beforetheir beloved Ashram rescued from the evil occupation by vile usurpers? Whyeven the Courts so slow? 21h The luminous legacy of The Mother & SriAurobindo is definitely not safe in the dubious custody of Manoj Das Gupta& friends of Peter Heehs. 21h The Mother recognised Sri Aurobindo at onceon arrival in Puducherry in 1914. Indians are yet to know his real worth evenafter a century. 21h It's ludicrous Manoj Das Gupta claimingDivine Right to rule over Sri Aurobindo Ashram by pathetically sponsoring well-wisherspamphleteering. 21h Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry must stopthe system of life-long appointment of Trustees to prevent sycophancy,nepotism, & black-mailing. 21h Peter Heehs has impersonated variously withfancy designations which the Ashram never conferred upon him. Why silence onthis? Conspiracy? 22h The Ashram will be stirred only when itspremises is attacked or property ransacked and not if the reputation of TheMother & Sri Aurobindo. 22h The Ashram maintains that it has got nobusiness with whatever people write about Sri Aurobindo including its inmates.Exemplary neutrality! 22h - @gchikermaneYou may say goodbye to me but you owe the nation an apology for perpetratingfalsehood with regard to Peter Heehs last year.  Viewconversation - 22h No amount of paid-media coverage andplanted panegyrical can exonerate Peter Heehs of the indiscretions committed inLives of Sri Aurobindo. 23h @gchikermaneThat's obvious but you should clarify on your Peter Heehs nexus and thehospitality by the Ashram enjoyed by you so frequently. Viewconversation - 23h Must be some serious groundwork for PeterHeehs' defence when @gchikermaneis in Puducherry. Admirable nexus between history and economics.  Viewconversation - 23h The world needs Peter Heehs' extraordinarygenius as historian and his fans are thirsty for his forthcoming book. Why ishe locking himself? 23h Vigilance needs to be beefed up andresistance augmented so that Sri Aurobindo Ashram is not hijacked by likes ofPeter Heehs the CIIS way. 23h Authentic historical account regarding TheMother & Sri Aurobindo can emerge only when the stranglehold of Peter Heehsover the Ashram ends. 23h Residence of just 1 person has beentroubling a whole community of devotees & admirers of Sri Aurobindo. Ashramshould throw Peter Heehs out. 23h Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry hasembarked upon a propaganda campaign to acquit itself of the sins committed byPeter Heehs but in vain. 30 Mar Peter Heehs hit upon the queer formulathat whatever others say about Sri Aurobindo is true but what he himself saidis suspect as history.

Ken Wilber borrowed from Sri Aurobindo in buckets

Tweets 2 hrs - Savitri Era Party @SavitriEraParty Ken Wilber scoured heaven & earth but finally borrowed from Sri Aurobindo in buckets to spread his spectrum. Human Cycle is such compulsion. 3 hrs Blustering about India leading the world while being tied to hostile forces is anomaly. In The Human Cycle, Sri Aurobindo exposes the folly. 37 mins Sri Aurobindo reaffirms that the future of India is not a speculative game of chess or amenable to manipulative politics. He leads the march. 56 mins Mortgaging intellect & creativity to the pygmy project of being Rajya Sabha MP is the worst kind of betrayal of the country. Truth Triumphs. 1 hr Why Ontology commands the least prestige among the elite today? Because of the notion that Mythology is all. Sri Aurobindo rescues Philosophy. 2 hrs The way Leftist subaltern turn gave a new lease of life to Gutenberg's invention, the Hindutva supraltern twist is grist to the Twitter mill. 5 hrs Religion based nationalism is a regressive intoxicant. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo invoke spirituality oriented human unity to push evolution. 5 hrs The juvenile thrill of proxy-nationalism reinforced by Cricket & Olympics prevents mature citizens' initiative towards World Union & Harmony. 5 hrs Most individuals and institutions in India today lack the intellectual apparatus to imbibe Sri Aurobindo's insights. One century not enough. 5 hrs Western education brought thought fermentation in India & myriad cultural theories began to float. Lastly, Sri Aurobindo cleared the clutter. 10 hrs It might seem an accident but an acutely perceptive person like V.P. Singh becoming the PM is a peak as the avalanche of hostility he faced. 11 hrs Evolution, Sri Aurobindo points out, moves in a spiral path which means the prevailing circumstance may not be the highest achievement so far. 11 hrs Being a prisoner of one's own mental image of a leader is a source of recurrent frustration. Only the Divine surpasses the human expectation. 11 hrs Accepting exceptions & extreme examples as the rule is the most paradoxical situation in life. But that's how one is able to exceed oneself. 12 hrs Wherever one is, to feel & act like a member of an army for Global Harmony is the most challenging task today given the resistance to ideas. Mar 5 Sri Aurobindo’s Integral vision is in sharp contrast to the pessimistic scenario painted by his contemporaries like Spengler and Heidegger. Mar 5 The Mother & Sri Aurobindo paved the way for next evolution. How the people of India align themselves to that would mean a great transition.

13 hrs - Savitri Era Party @SavitriEraParty - @Realist_Indian Opium trade and the dominant role of the Parsees has something to do with disproportionate distribution of entrepreneurship.  View conversation - 21 hrs - @rishabh2020 Who wins the election and comes to power is a different issue but at the ideological level RSS has the most undesirable policy.  View conversation -21 hrs [Vasantasena is a prostitute... prostitutes in the days of yore in India weren't looked down upon.] By Sandeep. B …  - 23 hrs - @SudheenKulkarni All major political parties in India owe their origin to pre-Independence circumstances and issues. A new beginning needed.  View conversation - 23 hrs BJP can't produce a better mascot than ABV who lost in 2004 and Advani bit dust in 2009. Ideology and not oratory can save it from oblivion. 23 hrs With RSS as its albatross, BJP, though the principal opposition party, is clearly ill-suited to stand up to the challenges of 21st century. 24 hrs BJP & its supporters, pitiably, continue to ignore the ground reality and thrive on euphoria like in 2004 and 2009. … … - Mar 5 Anna, Kejriwal & Ramdev are dissapointments but there is wide political space beyond Sonia, BJP~RSS & the Left. Sri Aurobindo shows the way. Mar 4 - @tnk0205 That we have been listening for a long time. But overseas Chinese invest in China while their Indian counterparts just remit money.  View conversation - Mar 4 - @tnk0205 Economics involves history, geography, religion, culture & a host of other factors. So, no point comparing one nation with another. Mar 4 - @tnk0205 development is a slow process and so there is nothing to be pained about. With good understanding of theory, nothing to feel sorry. Mar 4 - @tnk0205 But they also remit money, invest in Indian stocks, donate to Indian institutions, spend while touring the country & bring friends. Mar 4 - @tnk0205 India is a combination of individuals and when their personal prosperity rises, the prosperity of the country also goes up. Simple.  Mar 4 - @tnk0205 No one sends; the individual exercises his freedom to move wherever he likes, whenever he decides. Liberty is the key to prosperity. Mar 4 - @tnk0205 There is no need to agree immediately but do insist on reading more by maintaining a learner's attitude. Cf. - Mar 4 - @tnk0205 Not exactly since remittance in foreign currency is the mainstay of our economic buoyancy. Punjab and Kerala are primary examples. Mar 4 - @tnk0205 Progress and prosperity are not one way traffic. Without NRIs the present level of affluence in India would have been unthinkable. Mar 4 - @tnk0205 Freedom and Harmony are the twin guiding principles driving the human civilization in the path of evolution towards its perfection. Mar 4 Even "strife and opposition," says Sri Aurobindo in The Human Cycle, "is a help towards the divine purpose" (CWSA.25.65) and so is no thwart. Mar 4 If an invitation makes some disproportionately happy then they are bound to be equally sad at its withdrawal. Yogic equanimity is the answer. Mar 4 - @atanudey Indian professors & students going to US is no shame. Human unity and harmony demands exchange of knowledge & ideas among nations.  View conversation - Mar 4 Relying upon some stray quote to build a sound economic scenario is therefore anomalous [TNM55] @rvaidya2000 - #5Dreams -  View summary - Mar 4 Sri Aurobindo’s notion of human unity doesn’t envisage any antagonistic prospect between India and Europe. [TNM55] - Mar 3 BJP, RSS, & Sisyphus. Pramod Mahajan, Nitin Gadkari, & Sitaram Kesri. Five Dreams broadcast & Sri Aurobindo's Savitri

BJP like Sisyphus has an unenviable task

Tweets 1 hr - Savitri Era Party @SavitriEraParty BJP like Sisyphus has the unenviable task of pushing RSS up the evolutionary ladder but every time it comes sliding down. Time to say adieu. 6 hrs Neither dynasty nor personality, only ideology can propel India in its appointed role set forth in 1947 5-Dreams broadcast by Sri Aurobindo. 6 hrs Pramod Mahajan's five-star culture offered abundant feel-good factor to varnished BJP to sell Shining India that crash landed so tragically. 7 hrs Of many parallels in history Nitin Gadkari's case warrants comparison with Sitaram Kesri. The loss of face RSS has suffered has no parallel. 7 hrs The prospect of BJP and RSS running a three-legged race as partners is foreclosed. The ideological mismatch is too glaring to be repaired. 7 hrs BJP's dismal presence in Andhra, Odisha, Kerala, Haryana, J&K, WB, TN, and UP: … Incisive analysis by ‏@GVLNRAO - 8 hrs @AmareshMisra A Prime Minister who really leads the country as well as his party without being directed by any remote control. @rvaidya2000 -  View conversation - 14 hrs Sri Aurobindo on 15 August 1926: a day which ought to be a day of consecration, of self-examination and a preparation … - Mar 2 Splitting UP into 3 or 4 States is a must although the ruling Party is strongly against it.
