THE HINDU RENAISSANCE AT A TURNING POINT
The Example of Sri Aurobindo

Of India's great modern teachers, one in particular embodies the kind of spiritual and cultural renaissance that India and the world need today. I am speaking of Sri Aurobindo, one of the greatest yogis, philosophers and poets not only in the history of India but in the history of mankind.

Sri Aurobindo was a well-rounded personality, who could function in all spheres of life with spirituality, intellectual acuity and practicality. He was not only a great yogi, but also a great politician in his early days and throughout his life retained a vision of the future of India as the spiritual guide of the planet, the guru among nations. Aurobindo did not look to the West for India or the world's true progress or enlightenment. Rather he saw the need for India to awaken and lead the world.

Aurobindo began as a fiery revolutionary in the Indian independence movement. He was a close young colleague of B. G. Tilak, the leader of the movement and the then Congress Party. However Aurobindo chose to retire from politics and devote himself entirely to inner yogic practices. He sought to change the human being, not outwardly by social means but inwardly by a change consciousness. He became a pioneer of yogic transformation on all levels from body to soul. Yet he never lost his concern for the country and his remarks about India up to the time of his death remain extremely insightful. His views on the direction India that should take were very different from and frequently highly critical of the way the country went.
