Sri Aurobindo

I do know that there's a genuine debate around Mohandas Karamchand; a profound pacific soul, for sure -  and relatedly around Subhas Chandra; the extraordinary intellectual warrior-general.

However I choose Sri Aurobindo as the Father of my Nation - most specifically because of His extraordinarily profound understanding of the Vedic perspective, on  mankind's uniquely central role in the Cosmic Self-Expression (no other - NONE - philosopher West/East or Ancient/Modern comes close).

Perhaps that Yogi's greatest challenge was to help us all realize, the issues involved in drawing down the Supramental Wisdom, into our lives.

This fact will become increasingly more relevant, as we deal with the advanced AI technologies in the 21st century.
