Sri Aurobindo's writings are like hard whiskey

 Collated by Tusar Nath Mohapatra

Wrote a blog about my experience in Matri Mandir, Auroville, Pondicherry. Go check it out!!! There is pin drop silence in the hall. One can literally hear their heartbeats once they go into the deep state of mediation.

Sri Aurobindo is way above Tagore's level. Believe me. Aurobindo's writings are like hard whiskey. You get intoxicated by them.

You know he's good when an Australian becomes his fan.

Sri Aurobindo's force works through human instruments with its flaws; not demand sainthood of them. Your expectations are unreal.

Seriously, who specifically is saying "we're on the verge of Godhood." Aurobindo has been saying this for a century, Plotinus for longer. Do we have a new AI accelerationist philosopher we should be aware of?


Strangely, this statement of Sri Aurobindo said before the turn of century (1893) still stands true!

What Sri Aurobindo said in 1893 is relevant through the ages.

If you have never read Aurobindo Ghose you are missing something.

He has amazing spiritual information for you.

Medicinal plant garden at Miraloke, New Alipore, Kolkata ( West Bengal, India) developed and maintained by school kids. Mirraloke, not a school or a coaching center but a learning community based on the thoughts of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother on education.

This structure is also circular which allows children to interact freely. There are large steps in front of the lawn where children and teachers can have classes in the open or just have a conversation.

Currently reading “conversations with Sri Aurobindo”. Will be sharing some of his ideas and thoughts. What a great soul he was! Look at his answer on ‘India as spiritual land’. This was back in 1926.

Inder S. Marwah argues Aurobindo Ghose drew on a nuanced reform Darwinism to criticize British imperialism and advance an alternative grounded in the Indian polity’s mutualism.


Reminds me of my time in Auroville - I was shocked the first time I saw people walking barefoot all over the city. My daughter immediately took to it, but took me sometime to make the transition.

Indian city life unfortunately isn't very conducive to barefoot living

Do higher fees in schools mean BETTER quality education?

Let’s look at this alternative school in Auroville that shows us how this is ABSOLUTELY not true! 

Note: if you want to volunteer in Auroville, read till the end.

Long back in a book on education Sri Aurobindo said "there is no parallel to the hypocrisy of the West". But the problem is that over the years our educated classes have instead of challenging it have adopted that .. hypocrisy

India has been suffering since 1990 in the wake of the temple movement. The best ideology to counter Hindutva is Sri Aurobindo. But neither the Congress nor the Dalits realise this truth as a result of which BJP manages to hoodwink the people. Savitri Era Party spreads awareness.

The Mother & Sri Aurobindo are the one Supreme Divine who have been giving an intellectual as well as political alternative since 1914. Indians must understand its significance and evolutionary inevitability and apply it in all spheres of life. Current leaders are ignorant of it.
