Politics



                                                            Politics

Sri Aurobindo withdrew from politics; and, in his Ashram,

a most important rule is that one must abstain from all politics

― not because Sri Aurobindo did not concern himself with

the happenings of the world, but because politics, as it is

practised, is a low and ugly thing, wholly dominated by

falsehood, deceit, injustice, misuse of power and violence;

because to succeed in politics one has to cultivate in oneself

hypocrisy, duplicity and unscrupulous ambition.


                                               - The Mother
(Pages 127-128 ,  Words Of The Mother Volume 13 , CWMCE)


                                       


We do not fight against any creed, any religion.
We do not fight against any form of government.
We do not fight against any social class.
We do not fight against any nation or civilisation.
We are fighting division, unconsciousness, ignorance, inertia and

falsehood.
We are endeavouring to establish upon earth union, knowledge,

consciousness, Truth, and we fight whatever opposes the advent

of this 
new creation of Light, Peace, Truth and Love.

These words of MOTHER should be a role model for our life.

I respect Sri Aurobindo Yogi.

But how a nation can keep functioning if all the citizens abstain from politics?
A spiritual advice should be equally good for all.

No politics for all means no system of gov,, no elections, no leaders, no defense, no education, no embassies or ambassadors, etc.

Who would want to live in such a country with no politics? I think none.

So then "no politics" means no dirty politics.
We need clan politics based on dharmic (spiritual) principles.
Ram raajya is an example.
ChaNakya gave us Vedic politics.

Vedic dharma does not tell us to force dharma on others, we never did.
It is not tolerant of the intolerant religions; and we unknowingly allowed them to stay in our desh; and we are suffering.

We also are suffering because many of us do not know dharma as it is in Gita (the summary of the Vedas).
So, we malpractice it. That is adharma and therefore sinful.

So essentially we need clean politics based on universal religion that is the Vedic dharma.

jai sri krishna!

Bonjour Jitendra,
Pour répondre à ton message,je pense que le jour où l'Amour régnera en maître dans l'univers la politique telle que nous la pratiquons deviendra caduque,L'Amour étant lui même la politique qui peut mener au Nirvana quelque soit les religions.L'AMOUR est au-dessus de toutes les lois et se moque bien de nos politiques politicienne.
C'est l'AMOUR qui sauvera le monde et pas la politique telle qu'elle est pratiquée dans le monde en ce moment. l'Amour régnera de façon universelle dans tout l'Univers et apportera à tous et toutes un Bonheur infini.Nul ne sait quand cela se passera,mais cela aura lieu.L'Amour est plus fort que le Mal et de plus il est éternel.La politique passe et ne laisse rien de bon derrière tous ses mensonges. L'Amour lui est Vérité car il vient du coeur et du plus profond de nôtre âme.Le véritable amour ne triche pas.Aimons- nous déjà,si politique il y a ,nous verrons après.
