Sri Aurobindo never appeared on television

If you are a Swami and a victim, remain silent! Times of India, Swami Sadyojathah, Jun 10, 2010

There are some pseudo intellectuals and historians who argue that only Ramana Maharishi and Mahatma Gandhi were genuine. They praise only the dead and abuse the living. One historian while condemning the appearance of spiritual masters in media went to the extent of saying that Sri Aurobindo never appeared on television, forgetting that there was no television at that time in the first place! Going by the fact that Sri Aurobindo had used the print media so well, I am sure he would have done the same with television had it existed then. (The author is director, international affairs, The Art Of Living)

Thiruvenkatam, Chairman of the Tamil Nadu chapter of the Society, wanted the participants to undertake activities beneficial to humanity. V. S. Balakrishnan, secretary, welcomed the gathering.

I suppose some might argue for Sri Aurobindo, depending upon how one feels about the aesthetic (as opposed to spiritual) value of his poetry. ...
