Sri Aurobindo guides us to the Future

Hello Tusar, I have read the review by Julian Candy of the book THE PERENNIAL QUEST FOR A PSYCHOLOGY WITH A SOUL written by Joseph Vrinte in Savitri Era Learning Forum. I want to say something regarding the following passage quoted from Vrinte.

Vrinte's final position is shortly summed up when he writes, "It may be necessary that the integral views Sri Aurobindo once held have to be modified by his followers in the field of present-day knowledge. Ken Wilber's current integral views may likewise soon be seen as naive. That's why further revision of both integral approaches is necessary for future application to each seeker's unique life and circumstances." [p 544]

This is purely an intellectual view — limited to intellect only, having all the limitations of the narrow human understanding. All the philosophical or spiritual views of Sri Aurobindo, originated from higher levels of Realization, though they were expressed and conveyed intellectually, so that reason can comprehend, so that others can understand. Sri Aurobindo conveyed His message to us from 1914 to 1950 ; I am not speaking of His earlier writings. I do not find that present day knowledge, as in 2006, has been so advanced within fifty-six tears that it is beyond the supramental or even overmental grasp of Sri Aurobindo.
He did not live or think limited to His time, within the narrow frame of consciousness of an ordinary man. His Vision was / is so wide and all-comprehensive that He would have known what advancement of knowledge will be there. Mainly, He belongs to the Future. He had seen even the most distant Future, and that is why He guides us to the Future, to the Supramental Future. I am not speaking about Ken Wilber. But to say that the views of Sri Aurobindo was naïve and there is a need for further revision is a statement of a narrow opportunism without any depth or understanding. Personal uniqueness of life and circumstances has nothing to do with a true integral progress towards Supramentalization. Rather those things and aspects of life have to change with the progress made or to be made. Barin 30-07-2006 From Barindranath Chaki The New Horizon - ,
