ASPIRATION Comment by Barindranath Chaki This is the aim of ASPIRATION — to prepare for the advent of the Supramental Race. And to be sincere to The Mother and Sri Aurobindo, we must never forget that Their Teaching is NOT a religion — religions belong to the old humanity, full of divisions and strifes and groups and limitations. We, the Aspirants must be above all religions! Barin Chaki 09-08-09Comment by Barindranath Chaki
It is a spiritual Truth, realised by many, including the Supramental pioneers that attempts of a contact with God through the Mind only do not go far. One has to pass beyond Mind. That is the Way.

With all due respect: I belong to a Christian tradition. My grandparents were Christians. My parents were Christians. And I myself was educated as a Christian. But I grew and matured, well...maybe just a little. But enough to realize that a tradition that excludes the other and says to herself "I am the Way and no one comes to the Father but it is not through me" can not be a way too high.
India taught me, through the distance and when I was almost a child that there are countless ways to reach the summit of a mountain, taught me that God is infinite, that's to say, there are many ways of approaching the Lord...
But if India has taught me this, Sri Aurobindo and Mother taught me that heaven is not beyond this earth, in fact, they taught to me that is no good to scape from here to search Lord... because Lord is all. Yes, they showed to me that is no good looking for a heaven away from the material manifestation…They taught me that God is infinitely wise.

i am not an expert in christian philosophy and i can not comment much on the main topic that has been posted here. but what i feel I HAVE to express here. i do not know whether this would create an unnecessary scene among us but it has to be said.
as aleady i can not comment much on th etopic mainly coined by Ingo here. but there have been some reactions to it. and it is good to see them. coming already. and amazingly Ingo is responding to them with equal ascertiveness. (whether it is ascertiveness or something else we need to see later).
what i persoanlly think is i must reply to ingo's replies to Jordi in particular...... God is inside yourself.....i certainly agree....and i know there is even more intact relation with Him/Her....and that is "tat-tvam-asi" - Though art That....His name is Jesus Christi donot agree....becuase why do we have to tie down The Supreme with just one name? why He/She has to be only Jesus? why not simply The Supreme, The Infinite, The Ineffable?.............are the only ones to reach the heaven of all heavens, which is beyond this heaven on earth.
whether it is Heaven, or Hell, all the possibilities are within us, as He Himself has manifested in the form of this human body - yathA brahmANdE, tathA piNDANDE....while there are Heavens beyond the reach of earth and humanity, they are bound to come down here...and that where we are all working.
we request you to stop using ASPIRATION for spreading the words of Jesus. we all do go to church, we all do salute stand in silence over there like you do. but the path is different. and ASPIRATION is the area where we discuss the path we have found for ourselves, the Path of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother.
we are the people aspiring to reach the Beyond. when we say Beyond...He is Beyond everything. religion, name, thought, senses, experience, etc.please do not use this forum to discuss anything related to christianity, as we do not use it to spread any religion, whether hinduism or islam.
this is a huble request. P.S: HENCE FORTH LET US AVOID ALL THE DISCUSSIONS NOT RELATED TO THE MOTHER AND SRI AUROBINDO, THEIR PATH, PHILOSOPHY. WE CAN DISCUSS OUR OWN OPINIONS AND VIEWS ON THE SAME. BUT LET US BE CONSTURCTIVE. THIS IS A TOTALLY OFF THE TRACK CONVERSATION GOING ON AND MUST BE MODERATED WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT IF THIS CONTINUES.
WHILE I DO NOT HAVE ANY INTENTIONS TO CAUSE ANY DISHARMONY TO ANYONE IN THIS SITE OR ANYWHERE ELSE, ANY SLIGHT INITIATION TO DO THE SAME HERE OR ANYWHERE WILL BE DEALT WITH AND WILL BE DEALT WITH TILL IT IS SETTLED.

Anyone who claims that his path is the path and his truth is the truth is showing to everybody that do not know neither the truth nor the path. Because ... How can the infinity has a only path to arrives to Her?
You speak us of Jesus Christ...Certainly a great Being who brought humanity the teaching of Love. But say that he is the only gateway to the Divine is an assertion that violates the intelligence of the members of this forum.
Please opine on what you want. But do not use this space to evangelize anyone.
Mirror of Tomorrow by RY Deshpande on Fri 07 Aug 2009 08:12 PM IST Profile Permanent Link I completely agree with what Ned is saying. The Mirror cannot be a platform to project Party ideals of whatever kind these be. I’ll request commentators to desist from such a temptation.
