Obadiah Harris in his letter (deliberately?) does not mention his connection with Debashish. Obadiah is the president at where Debashish is on the faculty. Check the faculty bios on the site. The lawyers of Heehs (SCIY) are working behind the scenes. Posted by Anonymous to Savitri Era at 11:44 PM, July 03, 2009

I believe you are mistaken here. No one who has read Purani will even imagine or question his love and admiration for Sri Aurobindo. Words are not mere words but a means of expression of the consciousness of the writer and are therefore infused with his consciousness. The author here under the garb of rationality and academic posture has damned his teacher, cast a cloud on virtually everything that SA did in his life. He has cast a cloud on his teacher's role as a nationalist.

It is a tragic irony that after 60+ years of India's independance SA finds himself condemned (posthumously) by the "High court" of history that has held him negligent and therefore responsible for the bloodshed that accompanied the partition. And who is the judge of this court? It is SA's own disciple who delivers this stunning pronouncement and revelation. Contrast this with CR Das who stated

"..Long after he is dead and gone, his words will be echoed and re-echoed, not only in India but across distant seas and lands. Therefore, I say that the man in his position is not only standing before the bar of this Court, but before the bar of the High Court of History..".

I do believe you do not see it this way but if you pause and reflect a little the treachery of the book will reveal itself to you. It is because you are sincere that you find yourself withdrawing from the controversy. This naturally translates itself into a suspension of your overt support of the author and his book. Clearly those who are sincere the Divine Grace often prevents the seeker from being an instrument for perpetuating a falsehood. Why let the voice of your "friends" speak for your soul?.

In my opinion Chinmoy was deluded. I refer you to the entry for 18th August 1965 of "Mother's Agenda" (Vol. VI). It can be read online in English at the following link: ... Thank you. Posted by Chotochele to Aurora Mirabilis at 7:14 AM, July 07, 2009
