No single institution can now claim monopoly over Sri Aurobindo and the Mother’s teachings

4 January 2010 09:12 - Do u know on 31st Dec Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust declined to send on 7.1.10 SA's Relics to 8 centres (as per their earlier letter) in Orissa for installation. Presently hectic discussion is on at Pondy and a final decision is expected by today afternoon. Here all preparation has been made to welcome the Lord. Anyway the best will happen. Bye.

7 January 2010 20:43 - Finally SA's Relics for installation in 8 Odisha centres were received by Sri Debasis Samantaray, MLA. Tomorrow the Relics will come to Bhubaneswar as per programme.

Of late, the large scale positive response to Sri Aurobindo's ideals first in Orissa and now in Tamilnadu, apart from the hundreds of centres that have sprung up all over India and abroad, shows that Sri Aurobindo's yoga is not limited to only a few serious sadhaks but has a considerable .... 

A critique of the book "The Lives of Sri Aurobindo" by Peter Heehs ... By Raman Reddy
After the Mother’s passing away in 1973, the circumference of her spiritual action seems to have further increased and spread across India, especially in the states of Orissa and Tamilnadu and less in the rest of the world, so that no single institution can now claim monopoly over Sri Aurobindo and the Mother’s teachings. The question that comes to my mind is how is it that the most difficult Yoga, a Yoga which begins where the old Yogas end, has been at all accepted by so many?
It only shows the Power that is behind and the infinite plasticity it has to adapt itself to various levels of consciousness. It is in the context of this action of the Mother that the present situation should be judged. People often compare the glorious days of old with the present times, but they don’t visualise what would have happened had there been no takers after the first generation of disciples disappeared with time. Thus, ironically, it is this very dilution that has been our gain, for so many of us would never even have had the chance to enter the life of the Ashram.
