History of Armed Revolution -- Aurobindo Ghosh

 The booklet, " Bhabani Mandir", reveals that Aurobindo organised the youth in all India perspective to make a success of the 'Bengal Partition' movement. In his plan one gets the reflection of the thoughts of Swami Vivekananda. Aurobindo stressed that the political freedom of a country is just like breathing of a human being.If this aim is not clear then all other things such as social reform, educational reform, expansion of Industry and moral upliftment of a nation becomes meaningless and hence on the point of Swaraj he was just opposite to the moderates. The demand of the moderates is to get  Dominion Status under the British umbrella  where as the revolutionary followers of Auronindo demanded complete independence.In the year 1906, Aurobindo explained the meaning of the term Swaraj as  complete Independence. The followers of Aurobindo took the path of sacrifice on the demand of complete independence.
Aurobindo explained to his followers another important issue i.e. the role of religion in a  multi-religious country like India. He quoted some sayings from Upanishad and explained in his own way  what should be the role of religion in India. In his explanation he took the help of Ramkrishna and Vivekananda.
Rabindranath had close relation with the revolutionaries of India and he attented several open meetings organised by them.
