Nothing psychic about it. You too are off your guard here and commit the same mistake. Reply

We are not concerned with X or Y or Z, in the least perhaps, or this group or that group, this culture or that culture—we are engaged in seeing the issues in authenticity of our perceptions. The concern is, what is it that elevates our consciousness, deepens our psychic feelings, kindles our flame of aspiration, ennobles our spirit. And let our language and our thoughts reflect with due sensitivity all such things. We are longing to receive greatening intuition, and cherishing the ideal to embrace things in their bright truthfulness. And we will go by that, in its integrality and in its plenitude. Be it so. ~ RYD Reply

Please consider it, as these things carry another kind of refined and noble perception which I value much. Perhaps these are the things which make the life of the subcontinent more precious and meaningful, rich and valuable. These were the kind of perceptions also which were expected from the Lives of Sri Aurobindo and the disappointment is because of their absence. In any case, pl consider my request, and thanks. ~ RYD Reply

Dear Tusar

"Melding of East and West"--May I request you to write a full length article on this important theme "in seeking a common sublime destiny"? I'll be extremely happy to have it for posting at the Mirror. Thanks. ~ RYD Reply
