Sri Aurobindo - Philosophy and Spiritual Vision

Philosophy and Spiritual Vision

According to Sri Aurobindo his philosophies were first formed by studying of Upanishads and Gita, and later from vedas. Aurobindo tried to realise what he read through his spiritual experiences and was able to match them. He also notifies that his philosophy is not due to any intellectual abstractions, ratiocinations or dialectics and most of his writings were to justify to the intellect of the readers. And other sources of his philosophy were supposed to be flown into him as thoughts through higher planes of consciousness.

Famous quotes containing the words philosophy, spiritual and/or vision:

    And new Philosophy calls all in doubt,
    The element of fire is quite put out;
    The Sun is lost, and th’earth, and no mans wit
    Can well direct him where to look for it.
    John Donne (c. 1572–1631)

    Drinking spirits cannot cause spiritual damage.
    José Bergamín (1895–1983)

    Every civilization when it loses its inner vision and its cleaner energy, falls into a new sort of sordidness, more vast and more stupendous than the old savage sort. An Augean stable of metallic filth.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
