People who circulate these letters into the public domains have no clue about responsible behavior

Sri Aurobindo Ashram: Lecture on “Prasthana Trayam”, by Bimal Mohanty, Aurobindo Ashram, Aurobindo Marg, 10 a.m.
Heritage walk organised by Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage Thronging the past: Heritage walk participants visit the house, in Puducherry on Friday, in which Sri Aurobindo lived.
PUDUCHERRY: Much has been said and written about Sri Aurobindo's life in Pondicherry. But how often do you get a chance to visit the exact places, where he lived? In connection with the centenary of Sri Aurobindo's arrival in the seaside town, the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) organised a heritage walk, to three of the many houses that Sri Aurobindo resided in, in the 40 years (1910 – 1950).
INTACH's co-convener Ashok Panda, and Hardie, an Ashramite, regaled the walkers with interesting anecdotes.
The first house Aurobindo hid in was the Shankar Chetty House on Vysial Street. The house still stands and is inhabited, although with a few alterations.
Those on the walk could also visit the second floor room, where Aurobindo lived, which is still intact. There also exists a shaft of sorts, extending from the ground floor to the second floor, which was perhaps used for urgent communication with the house owners.
The Raghav Chetty House on Rue St. Louis, where Sri Aurobindo lived from 1911 to 1913, was the place where he, along with Subramania Bharati, Mandayam Srinivasachariar and others used to hold eclectic discussions.
The entrance to his room, was also blocked by a cupboard, whenever the police arrived, Hardie revealed, pointing to the room.
Two houses in which he resided, on Suffren Street and Mission Street, do not exist anymore. In 1922, he moved to the Guest House on Rue Francois Martin which the walkers visited, and then to the main Ashram building.
The balcony overlooking Rue Saint Gilles was where he gave his darshan from, until 1950.
The Initial Development of the Mental Consciousness by sriaurobindostudies
Sri Aurobindo points out “In the human mind there is the first hope of understanding, discovery, a free comprehension; here we might seem to be coming to the possibility of self-knowledge and world-knowledge. But in fact our mind can at ...
As a result of this somewhat extended review of this chapter of Sri Aurobindo’s Life Divine, we can see that “the conception of a divine Mind and Will creating the cosmos becomes justifiable, while at the same time the perplexing elements in it which our reasoning mentality refuses to ascribe to an arbitrary fiat of the Creator, find their explanation as inevitable phenomena of a Consciousness emerging with difficulty out of its opposite–but with the mission to override these contrary phenomena and manifest by a slow and difficult evolution its greater reality and true nature.”

The mother of Savitri in Sri Aurobindo's epic poem says that the sufferings of others are harder to bear than her own. Such suffering leads to internal spiritual reorientation. Then it does not result in loss of aplomb. ...

It is also nothing new that every organization and institution has within and around it, its “judas” who pretend to be there to do a great service…
that letter is a shameful public display of petty and dirty mud-slinging and slandering probably undertaken by some frustrated individual(s), that puts Sri Aurobindo’s devotees and followers to shame. And the people who circulate these letters into the public domains surely have no clue about responsible behavior.
The charge of bigotry has also been levelled on SCIY before.
Let this self-appointed defender of you-know-who, Satheesh, first acknowledge and condemn Peter Heehs first for the disparaging remarks made in the biography against the direct disciples of Sri Aurobindo.  Then we can talk about what RYD has written here.

India’s Princely states covered nearly 40% of the Indian subcontinent at the time of Indian independence, and they collapsed after the departure of the British. This book provides a chronological analysis of the Princely State in colonial times and its post-colonial legacies. It focuses on one of the largest and most important of these states, the Princely State of Mysore, and offers a novel interpretation and thorough investigation of the relationship of king and subject in South Asia.
Using a combination of historical and anthropological methodologies and based upon substantial archival and field research, the author argues that the idea of kingship lived on in South India and continues to play a vital and important role in contemporary South Indian social and political life.
