"Education" policies have always been & will be about mass literacy. It's about numbers & creating future "workforce". Hence, Govts should be kept out of education. Education is & must be the function of households & communities if we must transmit/protect anything of real value.
No matter which political party is in power, one cannot let them have power over one's children and family.
Your children becoming the children of the state is communism's dream.
Sadly, many Hindu parents have given up the power to raise their own children and cry foul now!!! https://t.co/Yy4r6JDYwX
Hindus writing books/novels based on our puraaNaas and itihaasas in English today:
Let's not hold each other to high standards or any standards for that matter. You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours! Together, we'll become or just declare ourselves "best-selling authors"!!!
universities: we have an impressive Latin motto.
also universities: we cut the entire classics department.
The Latin university motto is the analogue of the Chinese tattoo: its wearer has no idea what it means, but thinks it brings street cred.
Went to Auroville of my own volition and may have slightly warmed up to Aurobindo; perhaps it has its own place. But that place certainly wasn't Indian Lit 😶

Sri Aurobindo Sri Aurobindo represents the completest synthesis that has been written by Shrikanth https://t.co/vx9GvlIhCg #columns
49) Hymns 316 - 321 (Verses 3,283 - 3,345): Description of Rig-Veda, Mandala 04, Sukta 020 to 025 (all hymns addressed to Indra); with #SriAurobindo's words on the true psychological significance of Agni https://t.co/L9fUwlJnWp
I believe all this is based on some undated notes from 1927 that #SriAurobindo wrote, without revealing their significance, rest is built up by the imagination of the disciples :)
Perhaps not related to rebirth, but manifestation of some related powers in the two beings.. https://t.co/X67SFauPeA

There is also a student union a new type of school, named Sri Aurobindo International Education Center,at Pondicherry.visit it and learn what's real education and how the students will be.Exlent free progress edn. is running there with the help of soul.Would your govt follow it?
I have perceived it..a little of that great wave has nudged me to action that i otherwise wouldn’t have performed..simple gestures, that bloomed like a tiny flower, a speck of beauty amidst chaos..yes, I have seen it..
One has to be a bee to appreciate the flower..we simians have lost that faculty long back..a period of training and aspiration is necessary...
Yes. And it is possible..the collective is too big a field to change, we are not Rishis yet, but can start with ourselves..Sri Aurobindo says somewhere on how we aught to be,”..when one of us stands up, thousands around may be filled with His light, joy and power”
But too great the music, too profound the Dharma, until least of the little me remains, it shall not possess me entirely, I shall not be the full-throated songbird yet. of the little I glimpsed i can speak..but one has to know if it is curiosity or sarcasm or quest that impels?
Till 70s #SriAurobindo was not even in history expect the Alipore case ! Forget His literary works !! But as says SA in His #LettersonSavitri , A mistake once recognised must be admitted & CORRECTED ! And what a better way to teach English with of SA!! @narendramodi @Auro_Mere
With Maa Sri Aurobindo's grace, Mala Ashram had Prof @GoutamGhosal2 today. His benign nature, which has always been his hallmark, left the local people n members spell-bound. His visit will b a milestone for the Ashram in d upcoming days. We hope to c him again for better enlightenment
It is in Falta, West Bengal.
If one reads Sri Aurobindo, then s/he can fathom the significance of Evolution. Why the Westerners came to India? Why Vivekananda, Sri Aurobindo, Tagore, Gandhi, Nehru, Ambedkar, and others went overseas? Recognising inevitability of #WorldUnion and redundancy of Hindutva needed.
Both modernity and postmodernism are essential in our task of consigning all past religions and rituals to museums. Texts of course will circulate but sans reference will lose relevance and adherence. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo will rule on merit. It's Evolutionary inevitability.
Religions are accumulated culture marketed for commercial purposes with political patronage. They are also a means, says Sri Aurobindo, for elevating human consciousness, at times. This transcendental aspect needs to be a priority by relegating mythology and rituals to oblivion.

Savitri Era of those who adore,
Om Sri Aurobindo & The Mother.
Only sixty handles are connected to The Mother & Sri Aurobindo and many of them are dormant. Unfortunately, @viryavaan seems to be suspended. Let's hope, @TwitterIndia doesn't drown his firm voice. May be more devotees exchange opinions in FB but not being a member I'm not aware.
No one has experienced whole of life and consequently all portrayals of it are inchoate. Stretches of long years may be eventful but in terms of understanding reality of life can be a desert. Spectrum is merely a certain conception or visible aberration of light; not light itself.
Your tweets seem to be a bit uncharitable. Your article may have highlighted some miseries but that's not the whole story. There are many persons who are well acquainted with Ashram history. However, past sufferings should not diminish the relevance of Sri Aurobindo's philosophy.
Not many here can claim to have actually used Binaca Top toothpaste as I have. It came as a breath of fresh air challenging Colgate, before declining as Cibaca. Radio Ceylon's Binaca Geetmala was a rage then. Nature has this uncanny knack of thrusting new things and toppling old.
I was fond of building toy bridges in the childhood with bamboo stems, jute sticks, etc. complete with brick dust as the clay topping. Then the fascination turned towards "She is the golden bridge." Hope to build an actual (or, virtual) bridge someday and name it after Heidegger. https://t.co/yMlO7Z4Bvp
Book therapy for the problem of Mumford's "post-historic man"/Nietzsche's "Last Man" -- Jean Gebser's *Ever-Present Origin*, Rosenstock-Huessy's *Out of Revolution: Autobiography of Western Man* and Aurobindo's *The Human Cycle*. Should prove an effective cure.
"The great force of history comes from the fact that we carry it within us, are unconsciously controlled by it... History is literaly present in all that we do" -- James Baldwin. Can't free ourselves from robopathy, therefore, without consciousness and insight into it.
