Musical offering by Shivaprasada Rao

When the Mother was in Japan, she once addressed the women there, and said something that should be of tremendous interest not only to women anywhere in the world, but to mankind as a whole. She spoke on the mundane subject of maternity, but gave it a twist that makes women potentially the agents of a radical change in human nature. The process of creating a new life through maternity can be a conscious process. The mother’s thoughts and feelings during pregnancy can shape the consciousness of the baby taking shape in her womb.

All scientific evidence points to Aryan migration

Instructive that the two axes of scholarly discussion which so irks these #Hindutva orgs. are #caste and #sexuality. 

Remember that for the common American Abrahamistic mythology is no myth but history

I am a HUGE fan of both Jeff Bezos and Warren Buffett. Both are legendary and inspirational... (Amit is a Managing Partner at Prime Venture Partners)
Amazon and Bezos are legendary for paying excruciating attention to detail. The delightful Amazon customer experience in a highly competitive, cut-throat retail business is something to admire. 
What Bezos and crew do with customer experience, Buffett and his CEOs do with the business numbers and their capital allocation process. Almost every business in their portfolio, continues to outperform year after year. And Buffett and crew take pride in finding the best CEOs and staying out of the way.

Takeaway # 4: Are you relentless?

Wit and Humility Great leaders are intense, driven and yet don't take themselves seriously. Both of them, esp. Buffett, thrive on cracking jokes and have a strong sense of humour. They also don't have a problem talking about the world around them. Loved both of their quotes on the current US Presidential election. 

Takeaway # 5:
Take your business seriously but not yourself.

Bezos is obsessively driven by technology while Buffett has religiously shied away from it.

Article on @FoxNews claims Yoga can change DNA. Something #Aurobindo wrote in the #LifeDivine page 876.

@SanyalIndranil why quote from him at all? Does Sri Aurobindo need a certificate of merit?

As to purification, entire purification is not necessary, but some part of the being must have turned to higher things. -Sri Aurobindo

@Swamy39 what is your view on Akhand Bharat ? Sri Aurobindo ensured on 15th August 1947 and said this partition is against Divine force.

Mohit Bansal Retweeted Abhinav Prakash

Sri Aurobindo favoured spiritual anarchism with soul kinship, on spiritual illumination rather than rational enlightenment,on inner change
Sri Aurobindo viewed that infrarational can't be dealt by Reason but by spiritual anarchism based on inner harmony and freedom without chaos
Sri Aurobindo favoured true socialization of spiritual truth,a mere socialization of religion leads to churches, priests, conventions, dogmas

We r eager 2 learn from Swamiji & Sri Aurobindo about India & Akhand Bharatvarsha but not from Sagorika Ghose. We r least bothered about her

@swapan55 Your col @timesofindia is disconcerting. Bankim Chandra, Sri Aurobindo never trusted European hands to do justice 2 Sanskrit.

Essential religious practice: A constitution amendment that would put cultural practices like Jallikattu, Nag Panchami, Dahi Handi and all others out of reach of simple PIL process in the courts. If US based NGOs like PETA want to ban Jallikattu they should be made to go to Parliament and use the statutory route. This makes it to the Core Right list because the security of such practices are essential to a pagan religion.
