Spiritual Collectivities: a Talk By Sri M.P. Pandit
Sri M.P. Pandit of Sri Aurobindo Ashram recorded this talk on February 26, 1989 in Pondicherry India.  While the topic is spiritual collectivities, it should be noted that the issues raised are of use in dealing with the world at large.  As our world is confronted with polarized extreme positions that create conflict everywhere, we may find that some of the prescriptions set forth here are useful in resolving these conflicts. Humanity is undergoing an existential crisis, the solution of which can only come about through the cooperation of the entire body of humanity.  We must find a way to go behind the differences of viewpoints, languages, cultures, religions, political and economic philosophies to address the core issues that are driving us to the brink of catastrophe and extinction.  The ideas embodied in this talk help to create an atmosphere within which we can move beyond the transitory differences and find our common ground and work together for mutual survival and mutual growth in the evolutionary development of consciousness. Every human being has a seat at the table.  Every human being has a stake in the outcome.  Whether one follows one religion or another, one political ideology or another, one economic model or another, in the end, we need to address and solve certain basic problems of existence, and this can only come about through learning how to respect one another and communicate with each other in a positive and respectful way, regardless of our differences in viewpoint and approach. Santosh Krinsky of the podcast Sri Aurobindo Studies recites the transcription of M.P. Pandit's talk.  For more information about the work of M P Pandit visit www.mppandit.com   For the work of Sri Aurobindo visit www.aurobindo-net.
