The intricacies of Indian philosophy - Jun 6, 2011 The New Indian Express Updated Jun 07, 2011 at 08:03am IST
Indian philosophy is not only the most ancient of all philosophies, but also the most variegated. Though each theological school that originated in ancient India has evolved in its philosophical arguments, they cannot be termed schools of philosophy as 
Note the following words—“presumably”, “does not seem”, “seems to have”, “may have”, “would have”. Is this history or guesswork?
Would you like to comment on the controversy surrounding the book, The Lives of Sri Aurobindo? [TNM] On 6 June 2011 15:52, Ian Johnstone-Bryden wrote: The great difficulty that formal religion creates is the claim by each religion to offer something that cannot be offered by any other religion.

Yes, when I am satisfied I know enough about that book to comment in an intelligent manner. It has been very interesting to follow the flow and ebb of the debate. 
Mostly I have been reading and commenting infrequently only from my perspective to comments published in the debate, dealing with the principles of some aspects claimed for the book. There are inconsistencies in some published material but my knowledge of the book is still not adequate to know which inconsistencies are most valid. The debate has also covered a wide range of tangential-related topics, played against the original stated objective of SBI in makign the forum available. 

We have started this essay from a position where human being as a race has reached a stage of its development and moving in a circle at some point of the evolutionary march where from it is imperative to have a leap farther. He is obviously in an evolutionary crisis. He has piled up huge comfort and externalities for the fulfilment of his desires and utilities of his mental, vital and physical propensities.  He has set up a structure of external life and a system of civilization with multifaceted social, political, administrative and cultural machineries which has become more than his present limited mental capacity to sustain and handle.

His progress has become halted at some point in the absence of a greater seeing mind, intuitive and psychic knowledge and vision which could provide him free growth, greater knowledge, power and force to uplift his present status beyond his material and economic existence. He needs discovery of his psychic being, his spiritual Person and makes itself the leader of his development and progress.
