The Human Progress Metrics

In our dynamic world, evaluating human progress must extend beyond conventional metrics. Drawing from Sri Aurobindo’s wisdom, IntegralWorld presents “Human Progress Metrics,” a novel framework for gauging comprehensive well-being. Unlike the UN’s Human Development Index (HDI), our approach encompasses spiritual, social, and environmental dimensions, reflecting a deeper understanding of human flourishing. By embracing a holistic perspective, we aim to capture the intricacies of human experience and foster true progress that transcends economic measures alone. Through this innovative framework of assessing the holistic well-being of individuals and societies, we aspire to cultivate a more nuanced and inclusive approach to assessing human advancement in our ever-evolving global landscape.


In the midst of the digital revolution encompassing AI, automation, and other transformative technologies reshaping our lives and livelihoods, traditional metrics of success are proving inadequate. As the Global South rises and we confront the triple planetary crisis of climate change, pollution, and biodiversity loss, the urgency for a more nuanced understanding of progress becomes apparent.

The conventional Human Development Index (HDI) primarily focuses on factors like life expectancy, education, and income, offering a quantitative but limited view of human well-being. However, it fails to capture the qualitative dimensions crucial for true progress—truths about environmental sustainability, social consciousness, and individual fulfillment and means of bliss.

Enter the “Human Progress Metrics,” inspired by the profound insights of Sri Aurobindo. This initiative seeks to transcend the shallow measures of success, advocating for a holistic approach that integrates material prosperity with inner growth and environmental stewardship. By emphasizing the evolution of consciousness as central to human development, the “Human Progress Metrics” endeavor to redefine progress in a way that aligns with deeper values and fosters genuine well-being for individuals and societies alike.

How the "Human Progress Metrics" Works:

Drawing from the profound insights of Vedic knowledge, IntegralWorld’s “Human Progress Metrics” offers a comprehensive framework for redefining human progress based on the principles of Sat-chit-ananda—truth, consciousness, and bliss.

Harmonize Material and Spiritual Growth

This approach highlights the importance of balancing material prosperity with inner growth, a fundamental principle in Sri Aurobindo's teachings. By integrating measures of consciousness growth, the index aims to harmonize material and spiritual aspects of human progress, fostering a holistic approach to development.

By challenging conventional notions of success and including inner fulfillment, social harmony, and environmental sustainability as essential components, the index offers a transformative perspective on progress. This redefinition aligns with Sri Aurobindo's vision of a more comprehensive understanding of human flourishing beyond material wealth.

Inspired by Sri Aurobindo's integral yoga, the index provides a comprehensive assessment of well-being, encompassing the mind, body, and spirit. This holistic approach reflects the integral nature of human existence and acknowledges the interconnectedness of various dimensions of life.

IntegralWorld's initiative encourages individuals and societies to make conscious choices aligned with their own and collective well-being, echoing Sri Aurobindo's vision of humanity's conscious evolution. By promoting awareness and mindfulness, the index empowers stakeholders to contribute positively to their personal growth and the advancement of society.

By assessing social harmony and inclusivity, the index promotes the spirit of unity in diversity, a core principle in Sri Aurobindo's philosophy. Embracing diversity and fostering inclusive communities are essential steps towards realizing a world where all individuals can thrive, regardless of their background or identity.


The “Human Progress Index” represents a revolutionary shift in our understanding of human progress. It is designed to:

Environmental Sustainability

Social Equity

Social equity refers to fairness and justice in the distribution of resources, opportunities, and privileges within society. It encompasses efforts to address income inequality, ensure access to essential services for all individuals regardless of socioeconomic status, and promote equal rights and opportunities.
