Resurgent India

(In the service of Mother India and the World)

Sri Aurobindo, the greatest Pioneer  and  the Forerunner of the future-humanity or super-humanity  has put forth three tasks that India must undertake and accomplish, if India is to fulfill herself through a new resurgence and rebirth, and if India is to serve the highest aspirations of humanity and world-unity.

Sri Aurobindo has said:

“The recovery of the old spiritual knowledge and experience in all its splendour, depth and fullness is its first, most essential work; the flowing of this spirituality into new forms of philosophy, literature, art, science and critical knowledge is the second; an original dealing with modern problems in the light of Indian spirit and the endeavour to formulate a greater synthesis of a spiritualized society is the third and most difficult. Its success on these three lines will be the measure of its help to the future of humanity.”

The following four Organizations have joined together to promote the three tasks that Sri Aurobindo has put forward with inspiring force:

  1. Rashtriya Jagriti Sansthan, Lado Sarai, New Delhi – 110 030
  2. Divya Jeevan Foundation, Bivar Road, Shillong – 793 001
  3. The Mother’s Institute of Research, 192 Sukhdev Vihar, New Delhi – 110 025
  4. Shubhra Ketu Foundation, B - 42, Maharani Bagh, New Delhi – 110 0

These Organizations invite all other Organizations and Centres, as also all those individuals who feel inspired to contribute to the accomplishment of the tasks envisaged under the programme of Resurgent India.
