there are some people among us who feel very superior over the others because they are the followers of Sri Aurobindo, or for practising Integral Yoga. They even go to an extent that they will announce the rest of the teachings, or philosophies are myth. some even tend to propagate the Masters vision like missionaries, though i have come across some words of The Master and The Mother to not to do so. they even like to overpower others beliefs.

This is probably a bit late, but what I feel is that followers of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, instead of feeling superior, should feel that they are so fortunate in getting to know sri Aurobindo and the Mother and learn their teachings. Others have not been so fortunate. This does not mean that Aurobindo followers are superior.
Just as some people are born intelligent, some in wealthy families, some are fair, some are tall, some have leadership qualities, and so on, it is simply a question of being more fortunate. This should make us feel humble that we have such a wonderful opportunity, and HAVING that opportunity, we must be diligent and sincere in following the teachings. We must show to everyone that the followers of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother are worth emulating, and that anyone may become a follower and gain spiritual ascension.
It is like being in Grade 1, then 2, 3, 4 and so one. Everyone is going to pass out of school! sooner or later! And everyone needs a helping hand. Who will give it? I know one person who always does, no matter who or what. I am sure you all know someone like that. Maybe it is you. Is it?
