“What Sri Aurobindo represents in the world’s history is not a teaching, not even a revelation; it is a decisive action direct from the Supreme.” -The Mother
Despite centuries of progress, nations and people across the globe are encountering the same old problems. The established intellectual frameworks and the institutions have only languished. The world is constantly being buffeted by the rise of newer belligerent nations dreaming of world domination, virulent diseases, technological hazards, economic and religious turmoil, and social conflict. We have mistaken the symptoms for the deeper causes of our problems and overlooked the lasting solutions that have always been within reach.
Indeed, Sri Aurobindo, widely known as nationalist, revolutionary, philosopher, poet, yogi and guru, wrote clearly in 1947 that what was required was “a step in evolution which would raise man to a higher and larger consciousness and begin the solution of the problems which have perplexed and vexed him since he first began to think and to dream of individual perfection and a perfect society”. To understand the implications of this statement it is necessary to know deeply about the works of Sri Aurobindo whose sesquicentennial birth anniversary will be celebrated on 15th August 2022.
