But these social instruments has been defined in the Ideal of Human Unity and the Human Cycle and nowhere in these document are we forced to choose to adopt any particular tradition's religious practices as a social vehicle for transformation. In fact for this period in history, Sri Aurobindo seems to highlight the workings of secular democratic institutions as being as facilitative for social change as any particular religious organization of society. rc
