Well, my apology for not having included your name. Since your website is an open forum than the other sites of your friends I also regard you as being more openminded. Your reply is honest, which I appreciate. Would you mind if I share this with others? August
Mother said, "don't change a comma", but we got successive editions up to the 1993 one even though the best authorities - viz. Sri Aurobindo and the Mother - had passed away. But now it is said that since the next set of authorities (AK/NB) are inactive, we should not make more changes, even though it appears that there are spurious elements in the 1993 edition. Can one have it both ways?
I cannot read into people's hearts and minds to know what they really want or whether they are raising false disputes. What if one genuinely wants Savitri as Sri Aurobindo left it, and deeply feels there are issues with the available versions and the processes to get to them? What advice would Mr. T and Mr. V give them on how to raise the issue effectively?
