The Evolution of Man-Woman Relationship


At the Sambhuti workshop held at Sri Aurobindo Foundation for Indian Culture (SAFIC) in April 2018 in a session titled “Man-Woman Relationship” the speaker, Dr. Alok Pandey emphasised several aspects related to the topic.  In this part of his session, Dr. Pandey speaks of feminism as a means to bring the humanity’s attention to the intrinsic inner equality between men and women — an ideal which got lost in time because of excessive focus by the human societies on pursuing only the external lines of development which naturally create divisions based on external differences. He also briefly refers to the place held by women in ancient India, the deeper significance of Hindu marriage traditions, the gradual evolution of man-woman relationship within the context of marriage, and the necessity for an independent path of growth of each partner in the relationship.

First Step towards Conscious Parenting

At the Sambhuti workshop held at Sri Aurobindo Foundation for Indian Culture (SAFIC) in April 2018 in a session titled “New Age Parenting” the speaker, Dr. Alok Pandey emphasised several aspects related to the topic. In this part of his session, Dr. Pandey speaks of the necessity to reflect on some fundamental questions, questions that are often not asked even by the most educated individuals – why does one get married? Or, why should one bring a child into this world? Reflecting upon such fundamental questions in a sincere and objective manner helps an adult become more conscious of his or her choices when it comes to entering the householder stage of life. Dr. Pandey also highlights the fact that given the deep significance of parenting on a child’s growth and progress throughout life, this work must be done with a deep awareness and consciously. Only a fully conscious human being can become a conscious parent, so the real work begins by becoming conscious of oneself as an individual, as a human being, as a soul in evolution.
