Aurobindo considered an integral education as one of the best means of moulding future humanity.

The Aurobindo Society is doing good work, and I was humbled and gratified to be part of it for a short afternoon.
Two additional items for your enjoyment:
Yuk of the Week: If you haven’t read Frank Bruni’s Op Ed piece titled Panic in the Locker Room” you owe it to yourself. It's a hoot, and along with the merriment are some gentle truths. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/11/opinion/bruni-panic-in-the-locker-room.html?partner=rssnyt&emc=rss
Also, a final chorus for a favorite American patriot who died last week. I have used the songs and recordings of Pete Seeger for some 3 or 4 decades in my work, and I never tire of hearing him or the songs, nor did the students, young and older. He wrote my favorite American ballad, "This Land Is You Land". Take a few minutes to enjoy some of his best recorded moments at this website: http://entertainment.time.com/2014/01/28/pete-seeger-best-songs/ Don't miss the Obama inauguration video with Bruce Springsteen and his grandson. It is EPIC, and he looks so damn cute in that plaid shirt and stocking cap!
