Hindutva and Vivekananda are barriers
Politics serves as an easy means of boosting self-esteem for the youth but Sri Aurobindo exhorts to work towards Evolution of Consciousness. Before turning inordinately proud of saving the country, the youth of India must learn about what the Veda ordains them, from Sri Aurobindo. Sri Aurobindo rescues from the deafening noise pushing Mythology and Medievalism to acquaint with Vedic modes of volitional Self-Evolution. Don't carry misunderstandings and prejudices imbibed from Indian tradition all your life and learn from Sri Aurobindo to enrich civilisation. Hindutva advising women to have 4-5 children proves that it's 4-5 centuries back in intellectual growth & must evolve. http://t.co/ZoP6N9wBQQ
The youth of India must develop adequate intellectual muscle to wrestle with what Sri Aurobindo wrote hundred years ago in 1914 in the ARYA. Indian culture must unshackle itself from Medieval Hindutva & claim Sri Aurobindo's Judeo-Vedic Integralism to keep pace with Economic surge. Nehruvian perspective was okay for adolescence but the Nation must evolve into Sri Aurobindian maturity after a brief Hindutva interregnum. Nehruvian neglect of Sri Aurobindo's Knowledge Capital has cost the country dear and it has to pay the price by way of Hindutva backlash. Sri Aurobindo weans away from Vedic Ritual and initiates into Integral Self-Perfection derived from Psychological interpretation of the Veda. Savitri Era unveiled by The Mother & Sri Aurobindo has robust Philosophy and Psychology and steers clear of Mythology, Astrology, & Rituals. If Hindutva follows Congress example of ignoring Sri Aurobindo, it'd be a colossal loss of opportunity not only for India but also the world. With the aid of Sri Aurobindo, youth of India must be willing to defeat ill effects of Mythology & Hindutva and espouse Science & Modernity.
Most Hindutva defenders are hardcore Vivekananda disciples who have undertaken the burden to prevent Sri Aurobindo's teaching from spreading. Both Hindutva and Vivekananda are barriers to the sublime Knowledge source and path to Perfection unveiled by The Mother & Sri Aurobindo. Multiple wrong perceptions did penetrate the Indian consciousness through Gandhi, Tagore, and Vivekananda, and Sri Aurobindo rectifies them. Acolytes of Golwalkar, Savarkar, and Vivekananda must make up their minds to receive higher education and understanding from Sri Aurobindo. Winning Power after decades long struggle is bound to make Hindutva blind for a while but faultlines of its clash with Modernity will show up. Hoping to win successive elections through Hindu votes consolidation is a chimera as Democratic aspirations are likely to take precedence. Indian Constitution doesn't give any special weightage to any religion and hence all aggressive mobilisation of Hindus is counterproductive
Present Indian scenario is not a tussle between the Hindu and the rest. It's between Modernity and Freedom vs. Medievalism and Superstition. RW is now on overdrive in growing some theoretical muscle but one substantial mistake they commit is to treat Hindu as a monolithic category. Resolve to protect Liberty and Modernity by rejecting Mythology, Astrology, and Rituals so that children always feel India as their own land. Prevalence of Mythology, Astrology, & Rituals forces many Indians to turn agnostic but The Mother & Sri Aurobindo offer a fascinating option. It's worth the while to get rid of victimhood & negativity and follow the Judeo-Vedic Savitri Era ushered in by The Mother & Sri Aurobindo. Sri Aurobindo wades through Mythology, Mysticism, and Philosophy to express his Prophesies through Poetry. Make his SAVITRI a daily habit. All educated Indians should keep a copy of SAVITRI with them to recite a page or two from it whenever they feel like. http://t.co/sT7jU2B8db
Hindutva privileges Mythology and promotes Ritualistic mode of religion while Sr Aurobindo presents an enlightened version of Vedic culture. Just because Modi was able to become PM doesn't exonerate Hindutva of its ills and make it trustworthy for future generations. Buyer beware! [TNM55]
