    The family, the commune, the clan or tribe, the class, the city state or congeries of tribes, the nation, the empire are so many stages in this progress and constant enlargement. The perfect society will be that which most entirely favours the perfection of the individual; the perfection of the individual will be incomplete if it does not help towards the perfect state of the social aggregate to which he belongs and eventually to that of the largest possible human aggregate, the whole of a united humanity. The central theme of Sri Aurobindo's vision is the evolution of life into a "life divine". And this was done not by the stupid expedient of a brutal force after the Teutonic fashion, but by a peaceful pressure.

    Aurobindo spent his first five years at Rangapur, where his father had been posted since October Conventions promote conformism, and that thwarts progress but all the same provides stability. InAurobindo joined St Paul's School. Secondly, the partition of the country that accompanied the freedom, with all its disastrous fallouts, perhaps contributed to the erosion of conventions. The Congress split after this session. We dream of peace, harmony, beauty, love, oneness.

    The result was that the whole empire became psycho- logically and not only politically a single Graeco-Roman unity. Aurobindo was also arrested on charges of planning and overseeing the attack and imprisoned in solitary confinement in Alipore Jail. Google Scholar Copyright information.

The Human Cycle; The Ideal of Human Unity; War and Self-Determination by Aurobindo Ghose Download PDF Ebook

The secret thread running through all existence is the evolution of consciousness. For the obstacles of space, the difficulties of organisation and the limitations of the human heart and brain have neces- sitated the formation first of small, then of larger and yet larger aggregates so that he may be gradually trained by a progressive approach till he is ready for the final uni- versality.

It is perhaps in Sri Aurobindo's own poetry, particularly in his epic poem Savitri, that we find the fullest and most powerful statement of his spiritual thought and vision. A national culture, a national religion, a national edu- cation may still be useful things provided they do not interfere with the growth of human solidarity on the one side and individual freedom of thought and conscience and development on the other; for they give form to the communal soul and help it to add its quota to the sum of human advancement; but a State education, a State religion, a State culture are unnatural violences.

But the tradi- tion is The Human Cycle; The Ideal of Human Unity; War and Self-Determination book that of a golden age in which he was freely social without society. This typal stage creates the great social ideals The Human Cycle; The Ideal of Human Unity; War and Self-Determination book remain impressed upon the human mind even when the stage itself is passed.

IX, The Human Cycle, p. All the knowledge gained by the application of reason fails to reduce evil and injustice in society, and therefore suffering continues to characterize human life.

The falsehood lies in the underlying idea that the State is some- thing greater than the individuals constituting it and can with impunity for itself and to the highest hope of humanity arrogate this oppressive supremacy. It ranged from revolutionary homages to mystic philosophy.

Where is the West today? All his religious and social institutions, all the moments and phases of his life are to him symbols in which he seeks to express what he knows or guesses of the mystic influences that are behind his life and shape and govern or at the least intervene in its movements.

If no other elements of discord remain, yet the conflict of classes is always possible. The annotated table of contents provides an excellent overview of the material. This new consciousness will refashion both our physical bodies and our mental capabilities into a new integrated, harmonious structure.

Cartesian Meditation, tr. Irrespective of the system, power gets concentrated in the hands of relatively few, leaving the rest at their mercy. InKhudiram Bose and Prafulla Chaki attempted to kill Magistrate Kingsford, a judge known for handing down particularly severe sentences against nationalists.

Complete impersonalization of knowledge and action is humanly impossible. Rabindranath Tagore, Personality, London,p. With his limited financial resources, the only option Aurobindo had was to secure a scholarship at an English university, which he did by passing the scholarship examinations of King's College, Cambridge University.

In the Tantrik Shakta religion which puts the female principle highest, there is an attempt which could not get itself translated into social practice, — even as this Tantrik cult could never entirely shake off the subjugation of the Vedantic idea, — to elevate woman and make her an object of profound respect and even of worship.

Sri Aurobindo later said that while imprisoned he saw the convicts, jailers, policemen, the prison bars, the trees, the judge, the lawyers as different forms of one godhead, Krishna. Therefore the perfection of human life must involve the elaboration of an as yet unaccomplished harmony between these two poles of our existence, the individual and the social aggregate.

If we look at the beginnings of Indian society, the far-off Vedic age which we no longer understand, for we have lost that mentality, we see that everything is symbolic.

Europe has lived in England, France, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, the small States of Germany — all her later civilisation and progress evolved itself there, not in the huge mass of the Holy Roman or the Russian Empire.

And granting that in this direction lies the future, how can such an empire so artificial in appearance be welded into a natux'al and psychological unit?
