Ashram inmates see Asuras everywhere

The Matrimandir - Travel Photos - IgoUgo
At Auroville, visitors meditate at the 'Viewing Point' in front of Matrimandir. Visitors who'd like to go inside and meditate must get a prior appointment at the Visitors' Centre… The Matrimandir gleams like a somewhat tacky jewel—the huge circular tiles on the outside are 24 carat gold leaf (sandwiched between sheets of glass and fused together). Auroville: The Embodiment of a Vision

Auroville's best known monument, however, is the meditation centre known as Matrimandir (literally, 'The Temple of the Mother' or 'The Mother Temple'). ...
I got the uncomfortable feeling that the entire setup was very commercial—a ‘scam’, as one Adishakti artiste labelled it. The principle of simple living and high thinking just doesn’t seem to be reflected here; it’s all very targeted towards the affluent, what with the expensive boutique, the swimming pool (yes, they have one: the fee is Rs 250 a day) and a general air of having lots of money and plenty of free time in which to meditate on things other than having to earn a living.

Jung’s Psychology of the Living God and Transformation of Individual and Community: Part IV A—by David Johnston Comment posted by: auroman
I wasn't referring to Sri Aurobindo's disciples but the Sadhaks who exist today.  It is not necessary that all of them have gathered because they were greatly endowed for some work.
I can't help notice the biases of various groups –
a) The Patricia/Thea group reads geometry, numerology and astrology into everything
b) The Ashram inmates see Asuras everywhere
c) The Jungian group sees shadows and evil personas everywhere
d) The pomo crowd (SCIY) sees the world as a giant power struggle with hegemonies and marginalizations creating internalized resentment from which arise suitable cultural responses.  And yes, covert agendas!
In the absence of spiritual sight, all these are only inferences which could be right...or wrong.
