Even blaming entire religion or followers on the basis of actions of a few of a religion is unsolicited as well. -ks

[Morality involves regulating one’s physical and vital desires and impulses by the power of the mental will. Service to others – family, society, country – and other forms of idealism, while helping to discipline and mould human nature, still belong to the mental evolution and are bound by the ego. Exoteric religion serves a purpose in the life of societies to correct collective egoism and provide a support and help to those who have some spiritual devotion. But there is a radical difference between these three approaches to higher life and that of spirituality. Spirituality and yoga depend essentially on a change of consciousness; they reveal to man another realm entirely, beyond the rule of the ego, where one can begin to live more freely and unite with one’s true self.]
Morality, Idealism, Religion and Yoga

[Spirituality may often be confused with morality, idealism, and religion, which play significant roles in regulating, controlling, and directing the lives of most men. But spirituality, or yoga in its more general sense, is essentially different because it proceeds directly by a change of consciousness and presents a radical new approach to life. This approach, which goes beyond the ego and its exclusive focus on the common habits of the mind, life, and body, reveals to man how to find his true self and seek union with the Divine. The editor has selected passages from the works of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother that define and clarify these fundamental differences and, in the final section, that describe how to prepare for and take up the path of yoga.]
@SavitriEraParty You must be a covert Anarchist! :-)
Wow, sad to hear @SavitriEraParty say "stand by English". I'm not anti-English at all, but not at the cost of our Prakrits & Sanskrit.
All in all, @SavitriEraParty seems another transparent attempt to hijack Hindu philosophy for Commie policy. Virulently anti-Modi, too.
Only thing @SavitriEraParty takes from Aurobindo is "evolution". Hence the contempt for "mythology". Left only with Hegelian nonsense.
A lot of Bengali Commies are also into some half-baked "Vedanta". Same with @SavitriEraParty
@Parikramah examples also include Anandmargis @SavitriEraParty
@Parikramah Also who decides what Mythology is to be shunned? A large chunk of our history will disappear that way. @SavitriEraParty
