Excellent attitude Babul. I agree completely.
Mr. Chaki, Intellectual approach is movement of Nature Sri Aurobindo says. But we want to go beyond Nature. Nature is Prakriti. We want Purusha. Intellectual movement is good in evolution. Mind will develop, but now it has to understand it does not know all things. Mind is limited. Quiet mind, silent mind is for yoga. Guidance from psychic better.
And you write: "And when we refer to Sri Aurobindo Ashram in connection with the politicians, we are then stooping somewhat low. Should we bring down the Ashram, the symbol of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo, to be referred to in connection with the politicians, who are more or less, from the ignorant un-prepared world?"
Unfortunately that is what some persons are doing like Nandhivarman and Tusar Mohapatra. Luckily devotees prefer to lead quiet, inner lives. Why worry so much about what Auroville, Ashram, centres, doing or not. Either join and help, or just do own sadhana. Aspiration, Rejection, Surrender, Mother says. It is only thing which matters. My simple opinion. Vivek
