Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi offers tributes to Sri Aurobindo at Paris


Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on April 10, 2015, arrived at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) headquarters at Paris, where he paid his respects and offered flowers at the bronze statue of Sri Aurobindo.

In his speech, he referred to Sri Aurobindo and his teachings, saying: “Outside this hall, I paid respect at the statue of a great Indian philosopher and sage, Sri Aurobindo. There is much that we can learn from his humanism and spiritualism, from his belief in the unity of individual consciousness with the world outside; the enlightened purpose of education; the service of science; and, the unity of world, founded on national freedom, diversity of civilizations and autonomy of culture.”
