All those who want not only to live the life enjoined by the Integral Yoga but also in that light to work for the nation

Tusarji, I think Vladimir has made a very poignant observation here & one which we all need to deeply reflect upon on the eve of the 15th of August. The growth of a deeper perception, intuition is necessary to attempt to identify what Sri Aurobindo would have said in a particular situation especially if the situation & circumstance happens to evolve & exist in the present time. For this deeper perception to grow one has to immerse oneself in a constant, dynamic & daring study of His integral works & thereby develop an integral understanding of His Integral Vision- i may say that at the personal individual level this is the work to be done - kartavyam karma - it is absolutely indispensable for all those who want not only to live the life enjoined by the Integral Yoga but also in that light to work for the nation.
The most touching, striking & rattling observation is that of India's continuing unacceptance of Sri Aurobindo & His Integral Vision - as a result the continuing iron grip of division & ignorance in all walks of our national life. It is true & the resistance is mighty though naturally not invincible. No power can withstand ultimately the Truth of His Yoga-Shakti.
The inner-spirit, the soul of this country, whatever little we may feel of it has, in my view, certainly accepted & absorbed this deeper truth of The Master's Vision but its transfer to the surface consciousness has not yet happened that effectively - lack of receptivity, lack of depth, too much outward living, lack of understanding amongst policy-makers & leaders may be some of the explanations that can be given & there may be other deeper reasons, for the moment beyond the grasp of the mind.
I believe one work for all Savitri Erans, before which all else has to be sacrificed & given secondary importance, is this task of making India turn more & more towards accepting the gift He has left for her, it is also the principal task to which the Savitri Era Party must pledge itself. By that way i believe lies our national salvation - a national atma-samarpana to the Master's Vision is required & it is only from there that the nation shall receive the supreme assurance for complete deliverance - that is the only way, there is no other.
