[Principles of the Evolutionary Process from Sri Aurobindo Studies Sri Aurobindo has outlined this very succinctly in this chapter:

“At the outset, we can easily see that, since this is an evolution out of a material Inconscience into spiritual consciousness, an evolutionary self-building of Spirit on a base of Matter, there must be in the process a development of a triple character. An evolution of forms of Matter more and more subtly and intricately organised so as to admit the action of a growing, a more and more complex and subtle and capable organisation of consciousness is the indispensable physical foundation. An upward evolutionary progress of the consciousness itself from grade to higher grade, an ascent, is the evident spiral line or emerging curve that, on this foundation, the evolution must describe. A taking up of what has already been evolved into each higher grade as it is reached and a transformation more or less complete so as to admit of a total changed working of the whole being and nature, an integration, must be also part of the process, if the evolution is to be effective.” Sri Aurobindo, The Life Divine, Book 2, Part 2, Chapter 18, The Evolutionary Process — Ascent and Integration]

Western rationality clearly stands under the upanishadic golden lid, it is not rationality that has to be removed but the lid we are dying under. The discovery and the opening up of the lid is the historical force that has destined India to be the leader .

Rationality cannot combat the pseudo, the twisting, the distorted, av is facing. It cannot even identify clearly the enemy. Here is the struggle : pseudo AV vs un-distorted AV. I do not think people need to be protected against any mass paranoiac psychosis, they rather need protection against soul’s assassination. … Philippe Auroire.

SELF posits a model of counselling and communicative action as an instrument in order to stimulate the public sphere. The model aims at supplementing the individual’s struggle for a successful social adjustment with more aspirational inputs so as to help one take an informed and balanced attitude towards life as well as society.
