The West has lost the truth. We have lost the Great Sense, the meaning of our evolution, of why so much suffering, why dying, why getting born, why this earth, who are we, what is the soul, what is reincarnation, where is the ultimate truth about the universe… But India has kept this truth. India has preserved it through seven millennium of pitfalls, of genocides and attempts at throttling her santanam dharma.

And this will be India’s gift to this planet during the next century: to restore to the world its true sense. to recharge humanity with the real meaning and spirit of life. India will become the spiritual leader of the world, as India’s Great Sage, Sri Aurobindo, had predicted nearly a century ago :

“It is this religion that I am raising-up before the world, it is this that I have perfected and developed through the Rishis, saints, and Avatars, and now it is going forth to do my work among the nations. I am raising forth this nation to send forth my word…When therefore it is said that India shall rise, it is the Santana Dharma that shall rise, it is the Santana Dharma that shall be great. When it is said that India shall expand and extend herself, it is the Santana Dharma that shall expand and extend itself over the world. It is for the Dharma and by the Dharma that India exists”. (India’s Rebirth. p. 46 -Uttara speech)


And one is tempted to shout in the ears of all those “secular”, cynical, westernised, Indians of today, the eternal mantra: “Rise up, O India of the Vedic ages. Thou livest in the hearts of all thy people. Rise up O Westernised “secular” India, because thou art also the true India. Realise in your hearts the genius of the country which is yours. Stop comparing it to a civilisation, which is crumbling and cease equating it with parameters that are not hers. Wake up to the greatness of thy country. Not only the past greatness, which thou seekest to repossess in its music or in its temples, but the greatness that IS, there, waiting to be grasped again, waiting to be brought down concretely. Rise up O India, to the greatness that IS in you. Rise up O true India”.


Ah, we are coming back again full circle to the wonder that WAS India, the India of the Vedas and the Upanishad, which A.L. Basham, the best-selling author of “The Wonder That Was India”, criticised as being militant and politically disunited. But the truth was that they were united in their diversity, that it was much more democratic and allowed much more free play and freedom, individually and collectively, than the India of today allows. Let us again reread history, let us look at India, not through the Western prism, but with the ancient wisdom that She has bestowed upon us.


For indeed, this is one of the most amazing paradoxes of today’s world: here you have a country, India, which rates today as one of the poorest on this planet, which is disregarded by most Western nations (and many of its own people), as irrelevant, backward, too bureaucratic – and lately, as a hotbed of Hindu fundamentalism. Yet, India holds the key to the world’s future. For India is the only nation which still preserves in the darkness of Her Himalayan caves, on the luminous ghats of Benares, in the hearts of her countless yogis, or even in the minds of her ordinary folk, the key to the planetary evolution, its future and its hope. This knowledge which once roamed the shores of the world from Egypt to China, is today lost everywhere. Europe has now entered a turbulent Age; it will take a long time before it unites in spite of the near uniformity of its races and religions. The West, in its thirst for materialism, does not know anymore where it stands and has lost this precious knowledge, which India still holds, alone in the world.


The 21st century then, will be the era of the East; this is where the sun is going to rise again, after centuries of decadence and submission to Western colonialism; this is where the focus of the world is going to shift. And as when India used to shine and send forth Her Dharma all over the Orient: Japan, Thailand, China, Burma, or Cambodia and influence their civilisations and religions for centuries to come, once more She will emit Her light and radiate, Queen among nations: “India of the ages is not dead nor has She spoken Her last creative word; She lives and has still something to do for Herself and the human peoples. And that which She must seek now to awake, is not an anglicised oriental people, docile pupil of the West and doomed to repeat the cycle of the Occident’s success and failure, but still the ancient immemorial Shakti recovering Her deepest self, lifting Her head higher towards the supreme source of light and strength and turning to discover the complete meaning and vaster form of Her Dharma. (Sri Aurobindo).


But for that India has to succeed in her attempt to liberalise her economy, it has to learn to decentralise the heavy hand of its Government in Delhi, it has to rewrite its Constitution, which it adapted blindly from the British, it has to re-indianise her education methods, reform her political system, which has made a mockery of democracy, it has to keep Kashmir, for it is of vital spiritual and strategic importance, it needs to face-up to the Chinese and Pakistani threats… In one word, She has to become a superpower on par with any western nation. Then, when She will have the respect and the attention of the West, can Her message of spirituality and the ancient wisdom of santanam dharma, once again shine forth and bring down a New World to this beleaguered planet, which is on the brink of self-destruction. We all need to support @NarendraModi, who has embarked upon this extremely difficult task, as he faces multiple obstacles and enemies, who all know that this would be their death.





The problem of converts is that they are taught by missionaries (who are now mostly Indians), to hate anything Hindu. Thus, if you add other Hindu haters such as Marxists, Dalit converts, most of the Media, many Muslims, who sill consider Hindus idol worshipers and the Gandhi family, you get an idea of what Narendra Modi & Dharma are up against at the moment. Not only that , but India is surrounded by hostile nations, China, which claims a huge chunk of Indian territory, Pakistan, which has the nuclear bomb and no qualms about using it, Nepal in the hands of Maoists, Bangladesh, which is become ing more and more islamised, Sri Lanka even with Sinhalese majority which can never be trusted…

Can @amitShah & the @BJP4U win next 4 elections???

Can Amit Shah, who has just been reelected President of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) unopposed, win the next four crucial state elections (Assam, West Bengal, Kerala and Tamil Nadu)? Mr Shah has lost the last three elections the BJP contested – badly at that – and it should maybe have been a warning a sign to the BJP leadership for introspection and change.
Met Mr Shah once in his palatial house in Akbar Road. For a man who spent quite some time in jail, he seemed to lack humility (he promised to help the Shivaji Maharaj Museum of Indian History, Pune, which I am building ‘”, but I never heard of him again and all my attempt to contact him failed). But there is no doubt that he has a shrewd mind.
Do you think Amit Shah can win these elections ? It’s crucial, for if Narendra Modi were to lose all of them, there is a good chance he will lose also the next general elections in 2019… And India would be the greatest loser… FG…/story-lRDiTzXzvWnDPomyirBkQ…

Is now @narendramodi, Center Right (or left?)

If you don’t go after your enemies today when you have the power, it will come back to haunt you, for if they come back to power because of your weakness and so-called forgiveness, they will go after you without any qualms. This is a mistake Hindus have done since Prithrivaj Chauhan – and paid for it. Nobody wants to learn lessons from Kargil or Pathankot, which happened immediately after a goodwill gesture done by Indian Prime Minister. Nowadays Mr Narendra Modii reaches out to his enemies, such as Sonia Gandhi to whom he does Namaste or invites for ‘tea’ (but that did not stop her from sabotaging his GTS bill) but shuns his friends, such as Dr. Subramanian Swamy, or Arun Shourie, because they are perceived as too far right, by Leftists intellectuals and journalists, because the Prime Minister wants now to be seen as Center right (or Center Left?). Do you thinks he & the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are making a big mistake?

@NarendraModi supporters are puzzled today

I know quite a few hardcore supporters of Narendra Modi​, who are puzzled – and sometimes angry- that like Mr Vajpayee, before him, as soon as he became Prime Minister of India, he changed his tigers stripes for the fluffy white cotton of a lamb, who sheds tears over the death of a dalit (who was not even a real dalit), before his people told him that the guy insulted everybody, specially anything Hindu, and repeatedly challenged the authorities of the university.

Concentrating on the economy and foreign trips only, may make him friends amongst westerners and businessmen, but Mr Modi does not seem to understand, like Mr Vajpayee before him, that he will loose the next general elections, because the common Hindu, from the Dalit to the upper castes, who elected him in a united vote two years go, don’t give a hoot about Obama, Francois Hollande and free enterprise. Mr Modi also does not seem to grasp that Muslims, Christians, Intellectuals and most of the Media, will always hate him, however much he tries to please them.

I also hear that a lot of hardcore friends of the Prime Minister, who supported him in his darkest hours, when the entire Indian National Congress​, the Media and many western leaders were after his blood, to put him in jail, are being shunned by Mr Modi & the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)​ now, have no access to him and no way to tell hm what the real people of India feel about his Government. Delhi is a big bubble, totally cut off from the real India, where diplomats, journalists, bureaucrats and politicians pat each other’s back and forget totally about rural India, whom they are going to need at the next legislative elections. Some of these disgruntled erstwhile friends of Mr Modi are now whispering that the Prime Minister has lost his fiery, down to earth, no nonsense, pro-Hindu personality and has adopted the Delhi mode of thinking, forgetting why and by whom he was elected…

he has lost the last three regional elections, they say and instead of drawing a lesson of humility from it, of reviewing his public relations, he has reappointed Mr Amit Shah​ and still listens to himself, whereas even Sonia Gandhi had a national Advisory Council, which she consulted frequently.

As in this article below, they say that nothing has changed: education is still the Congress-type of education, Kashmir is as bad as ever and Pandits are a long way from returning; Article 370 and Ram temple will never happen and Hindus continue to shrink in West bengal, Assam and UP…..

I don’t know what to think, boys and girls, as I am a great supporter of Mr Modi and I have been thinking for a long time that he is the right type of India at a crucial moment, a vibhuti, maybe even. But after listening to al these friends, I have started to doubt even myself… please enlighten me. Fr

Happy #RepublicDay, boys and girls. Did you know that there were Republics in India long before the Greek and Roman ones,

although the world credits the Greeks with having created democracy? But as usual History is recorded through the prism of the Western world and is very selective indeed. Republican forms of government however existed in many parts of India long before the Greeks! In some cases these “Republics” appear to have been governed by a democratic assembly and some came out of a revolution; in other cases, they seem to have had an oligarchic senate.The Buddha’s father for instance, was a king elected by its own people. These republics enjoyed throughout India a solid reputation for the excellence of their civil administration and the redoubtable efficiency of their armies. One should also add that none of these Indian republics developed an aggressive colonising spirit and that they were content to defend themselves and forge alliances amongst them.

On this Republic day, let us listen to the wisdom of Sri Aurobindo: “India, shut into a separate existence by the Himalayas and the ocean, has always been the home of a peculiar people with characteristics of its own, with its own distinct civilisation, way of life, way of the spirit, a separate culture, arts, building of society. it has absorbed all that has entered into it, put upon all the Indian stamp, welded the most diverse elements into its fundamental unity. but it has also been throughout, a congeries of diverse people, lands, kingdoms and in earlier times republics also, diverse races, sub-nations, with a marked character of their own, developing different brands or forms of civilisation and culture…India’s history throughout has been marked by a tendency, a constant effort to unite all this diversity of elements into a single political whole under a central imperial rule, so that India might be politically as well as culturally one…
the ancient diversities of the country carried in them great advantages as well as drawbacks. by these differences the country was made the home of many living and pulsating centres of life, culture, a richly and brilliantly coloured diversity in unity; all was not drawn up into a few provincial capitals, or an imperial metropolis, other towns and regions remaining subordinated and indistinct or even culturally asleep. the whole nation lived with a full life in its many parts and this increased enormously the creative energy of the whole. there is no possibility any longer that this diversity will endanger or diminish the unity of India. those vast spaces which kept her people from closeness and a full interplay have been abolished in their separating effect by the march of science and the swiftness of the means of communication. the idea of a federation and a complete machinery for its perfect working have been discovered and will be at full work. above all, the spirit of patriotic unity has been too firmly established in the people to be easily effaced or diminished and it would be more endangered by refusing to allow the natural play of life of the sub-nations than by satisfying their natural aspirations… India’s national life will then be founded on her natural strength and the principle of unity in diversity which has always been normal to her and its fulfilment the fundamental course of her being and its very nature the many in one would place her on the sure foundation of her swabhava and swadharma…a union of states and regional people would again be the form of a united India”

happy Republic Day again boys and girls! Spread this post of Sri Aurobindo and let us resolve to carry in our hearts the aspiration for a truer Indian more in tune with what all the great rishis, saints, avatars, kings and queens, poets, singers, have strived and fought for since 5000 years



Sri Aurobindo wrote that there are three major Asuras controlling the Falsehood in the world : one that he called Lord of the Money, the other which dwells in Politics, and the third one is in the world of Sex.

The Asuras are beings of the mental plane; they act upon men through their mental forms and constructions and their egoism. “Men, he said, form ideas in their mind and accept them as truth; they form all sorts of plans and projects impelled by ignorance and egoism, this is where the Asuras find a scope in their play with man”

A disciple asked Sri Aurobindo : When do the Rakshasas and Asuras get a chance of exploiting men?
Sri Aurobindo replied: “When men open themselves to their influence. If we indulge ourselves to any great extent in ambition, lust, greed etc. they get a chance of establishing their sway over us”.

ALLOW ME TO ADD A FOURTH ASURA, which has emerged in the last 20 years, the Asura of JOURNALISM. We can see today that sensationalism, false information, biased reporting, anti-divine slants, the kind of campaign that has been going in the name of ‘Intolerance’ against Narendra Modi is the work of the Asuras and the Rakshasas, because if you look coldly at statistics, India has been the most tolerant country in the world – and still is.
Thus it can be said that the Barkha Dutt, Rajdeep Sardesai, Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan & many others, are rakshasas, tools of the Asura of Falsehood. FG
