Comment on The Anti-Hindi Riot of Pondicherry by Togo Mukherjee by Anurag Banerjee from Comments for Overman Foundation by Anurag Banerjee
Many people think we are trying to establish a “new religion” or that we are against this or that religion; there are many ideas like that everywhere. But that doesn’t interest us at all! (The Mother, 27 February 1965)
Sri Aurobindo Ashram -Delhi Branch founded on 12 Feb 1956.
The Delhi Branch was officially inaugurated on 12 February, 1956, with the Blessings of the Mother. To the great joy and gratitude of spiritual seekers in
the Mother graciously granted the very first Sacred Relics of Sri Aurobindo to
be enshrined here on 5 December, 1957.
Since then the Ashram has been growing at a steady pace. The shrine and the Meditation Hall continue to be the centre of life and the teaching of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother the guiding light. The Love and Blessings of the Master and the Mother and their Grace are always available to their disciples living here.
All live and work here as equals. No distinctions of sex, creed, religion, race, caste or national origin are observed: all are looked upon as souls and children of the Mother. There is no hierarchy of officials and subordinates. All work in association and as a unit under the general supervision of one or more sadhaks. Last Updated on Wednesday, 14 December 2011
Ranganath Raghavan's Response to "A Declaration of Solidarity" from A critique of the book "The Lives of Sri Aurobindo" by Peter Heehs To Jay Raichuria and Meera Gupta (Sabda)
To anyone reading your “Declaration” casually and superficially, it will appear to contain very sound reflections and plausible ideas. But a closer scrutiny will reveal that the words are high sounding without solid content. We are having a closer look at your declaration in a more deliberate manner and these are my reactions.
1. It is NOT an attack against the Ashram, it is a peaceful protest by some of the Ashramites and devotees of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother against the non-action (or rather active support) of the management, against an offender who, even while being an Ashramite, thinks it is admissible, even justifiable to find fault with the Guru. This is absolutely inadmissible in any spiritual life, specially so in the Indian tradition.
Tusar N Mohapatra said... Dear Debabrata babu,
As per the teachings of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo, we are all participants in an evolution that is taking place whether we stay aware of it or not. So, when you say that ‘I am this and this, and I do not want to be that and that’ it is simply not within your powers to decide. If we really leave ourselves in the hands of The Mother, then it is she who makes one Bagha Jatin, and another her

P.S.: If you tell us that you are indeed conscious of that deeper reality within yourself, and that you are truly inwardly realised and convinced that it is necessary to set up 'systems', create a 'Savitri Era Party', 'save' the Aurobindonian community from impending doom and destruction wrecked by the wretched administrators you seem to conjure - well, sound the bugle, and perhaps we shall be inspired to join you. But at present you hardly come across as one who has the Knowledge or the Call. I can imagine there is much which can be changed for the better, in Auroville, in the Ashram, in
in the world; but where does that change begin? Nay, Their workings are far
more complex, intricate, and mysterious, and "One man's perfection still
can save the world…" 9 July 2008 14:00 India
