About this blog

May 25, 2012

We are well-wishers of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram and believe that those who:

– go to court against the Ashram – particularly on matters that are subjective, based on personal opinions and perceptions or even worse which are frivolous;

– purposely spread false, wrong or incomplete information against the Ashram or its members to malign them;

– instigate movements of masses against the Ashram and its members;

– politicize matters relating to the Ashram especially by involving politicians;

– try to get external parties involved with Ashram matters against the will of those in-charge;

DO NOT serve in any way whatsoever the best interests of Sri Aurobindo, The Mother, the Ashram, the well-being of the Ashram members or of all the devotees.

Inspired by several of the blogs that have recently been created to expose those who are doing all of the above, we too have created this blog to share the views, opinions and information that comes our way.

    The purpose seems to be laudable.
    BUT it would help if you categorically clarify whether this group supports and endorses all the actions of the managing trustee with respect to Peter and his book. That would also clarify whether you are supporters of the Guru-drohi.

    • Dear H. Acharya,

      Thank you for your comment and for finding the purpose of our blog laudable.

      Regarding the clarification that you request, we are unclear about what you mean when you say “all” the actions of the Managing Trustee, so we are unable to answer your question as it is too vague. If you can be more specific about which of the actions of the Managing Trustee you want us to comment upon, we will share our views accordingly.

      But we can categorically state that our group upholds, supports and endorses the Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust’s stand – and therefore also that of the Managing Trustee – of neither prescribing or proscribing Peter Heehs’s book “The Lives of Sri Aurobindo.”

      About the clarification that you seek to decide whether we are supporters of Guru-drohis or not, we are intrigued about what makes you believe that you are in a position to decide who is a Guru-drohi and who is not one.

      But for starters, according to us, those who:

      – go to court against the Ashram – particularly on matters that are subjective, based on personal opinions and perceptions or even worse which are frivolous;

      – purposely spread false, wrong or incomplete information against the Ashram or its members to malign them;

      – instigate movements of masses against the Ashram and its members;

      – politicize matters relating to the Ashram especially by involving politicians;

      – try to get external parties involved with Ashram matters against the will of those in-charge;

      are likely to qualify as Guru-drohis.

    Dear Well-wisher;
    You have gone off the point in question, deliberately.
    Peter Heehs, an inmate of the Ashram for last 40 years at the archives, who has used those privileged material and written the book, the lives of sri aurobindo by distorting the references, with the intention to malign his lofty spiritual position, is the guru-drohi. Do you have any doubt on this? Kindly clarify.
    Anybody else, who has actively or passively supported or allowed this to happen at the Ashram by an inmate of long standing, is a supporter of the Guru-drohi. In this list, you can include the managing trustee, and/or anybody who is his accomplice in this act.
    You may like to clarify on your acceptance of this basic act of Guru-droha at Ashram.
