Certainly di, that is a topic that requires close study - to discern where modern psychology is on the right path and where it is going astray.. Here is what Mother said: https://t.co/bPpQ21MfWm
Thanks for the suggestion sir, May the Mother guide
I believe it can be..check how Sri Aurobindo wields English..use of Sanskrit NTs if done with sufficient frequency can acquire familiarity...if Latin phrases can gain common usage, why not ours?!
Someone must now write something on Sri Aurobindo wid reference to the giant-sized western psychologists n social historians occupying the academic space today-especially Foucault n Lacan. It is only thru comparative works that we can widen the scope of Sri Aurobindo Studies.
If he is the "completest synthesis of the East n the West", where lies the western stuff in him? Not much of true stuff on this is available in the market still.
He has to sell his book Sir! Truth doesn't sell much in the mass market! Who cares for Sri Aurobindo?
Publishers should also be blamed. They cannot deny their responsibility.
Tarachand badjatya used to stay in Golconde guest house at Puducherrry, and has helped ashram playground etc to direct movies on Sri Aurobindo and The Mother. Still in their all movies they pay homage to The Mother and Sri Aurobindo.. gratitude @Auro_Mere ..#sriaurobindo
Here is a still from movie Maine Pyaar Kiya in this movie you can find their frames at many places in movie . #sriaurobindo https://t.co/8CuHmOOS2r
I might have tweeted any number of links but people don't read nor need any further clarification. Why our educated folk are so reluctant to read Sri Aurobindo is a mystery. Articles on him are generally superficial and misleading. His #FiveDreams however contain seeds of future.
Darwin signifies a watershed; so many fields of inquiry got reconfigured to accommodate his findings. But in India it feels like he never mattered; ancient texts contain all the wisdom. Thankfully Sri Aurobindo took up the pen; after a dozen incomplete drafts came The Life Divine.

Those who are drawn towards the vortex of Sanskrit texts in their youthful enthusiasm are inviting trouble for all their life. One text will lead to another and then multiple commentaries etc. would rob many pleasures and cause vertigo. Sri Aurobindo's English translations safer.
Sri Aurobindo has hinted at Sanskrit possessing original root sounds that are self-creative. However no such quest is on and subjective findings are suspect. As regards the Mantra aspect Sri Aurobindo's poetic output in English is more accessible and relevant for the modern times
Proof is the very fulcrum of science but since there are immeasurable fields of knowledge beyond the confines of science philosophical speculation comes to the rescue. There epistemology is as crucial as empiricism. I'm not an atheist but against Astrology, Mythology, and Rituals
Its not about me, sir. I asked you a simple question, based on your tweet, but rather you got offended. So its like you want to question anything & everything, but if someone questions you, you get offended. Justness is also scanty like common sense.
“This is not the time, nor the place, for liberals to throw their hands up in despair and surrender and accept fate. Doing so would be profoundly illiberal.”
Enough obituaries have been written for liberalism, but ideas of openness and dissent will always remain relevant. @saliltripathi https://t.co/30cMb3xKR2
Lovely piece Salil. Just one quibble Arundhati Roy did not coin “comfort the afflicted & afflict the comfortable” it was Finley Peter Dunne

and finally, this bedtime story by @SankarshanT is mandatory reading for all so we don't forget those left to be forgotten https://t.co/Kchz4sCyYt https://t.co/k6FdKkkqmx
In my @htTweets column today I write on the evolving idea of social justice in India. From demanding end of untouchability and caste-based exclusion to demanding representation in jobs & legislature, it has now become demand for socio-economic mobility. https://t.co/zzILhs07yd
.. Your argument is not rational. It's a distorted reflection of following argument: Huge sized Nation was built by British Bureaucracy. The heat and friction of United India led to willing surrender - unite to surrender. The frustrating thing about any dinosaur sized
Pre-retirement judgements sometimes get influenced by post-retirement jobs.
There should be a two year mandatory cooling off period after retirement of a judge and before his subsequent appointment.

Vedic view of evolution from Upanishads to Sri Aurobindo is an evolution of consciousness, not merely of bodies. Only possible because consciousness seeded the universe at its origin. Not a matter of Darwinian natural selection but the power of consciousness (Chit-Shakti).
These words of Sri Aurobindo ring with another note and set us thinking when we see countries like China and North Korea. People have been turned into robots and individual liberty & growth & expression trampled upon ruthlessly. https://t.co/gvOwfFdupi
Atleast in Odisha schools run by RSS/VHP,Satya Sai Trust,Sri Aurobindo trust ,etc are giving serious completion:-)
Interesting article that presents varied perspectives in dealing with the climate problem, on a quadrant where the two axes are globalism-nationalism and capitalism-socialism.
In dealing with fires in tropical rainforests, we should address root causes, not surface symptoms. https://t.co/ESgDRakpKe
If you believe in doing Sādhana over multiple lives, it is fine. 😀 Besides, the beauty of Sanskrit is the effect on the mind. It cools it down through the vibrations of the inner voice when we read the texts.
