Sri Aurobindo could satisfy any scholar in almost any field

This is a brilliant – and unfortunately all-too-rare recognition of the extent to which supposedly “neutral” neuroscience is pervaded by underlying assumptions from the Western philosophic position. Though not a philosopher (I’m a clinical psychologist) I attempted to point to some of the limitations and pitfalls in contemporary attempts to integrate Indian philosophic/psychological ideas with contemporary science: 

[Trustees go about diluting the work of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother by turning the Ashram into a free-for-all place]
[there is an urgent need, an imperative necessity for government intervention in Sri Aurobindo Ashram administration]
[Philosopher, mystic, poet and nationalist, Sri Aurobindo was perhaps India's most fascinating and enigmatic leader.]
[In spite of his political involvement, Sri Aurobindo had a rather private disposition and rarely spoke or wrote]
[During the 1930s Sri Aurobindo answered a staggering number of letters to disciples, of which over 5000 published.]
CWSA in 37 volumes Complete Works of Sri Aurobindo in a uniform library edition. 28 volumes have been issued thus far
[THE Veda possesses the high spiritual substance of the Upanishads, but lacks their phraseology; philosophical terms]
[The range of Sri Aurobindo is such that he could satisfy any scholar in almost any field whatsoever.] @smurali1234
[the force of the democratic tendency is not a force which is spent but one which has not yet arrived] ~Sri Aurobindo
[An ever-enlarging self takes the place of the old... and it is this moral growth which society helps and organises.]
