Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust does not Approve The Lives of Sri Aurobindo
The following is the notice displayed on the Ashram Notice Board.
SRI AUROBINDO ASHRAM TRUST
It is unfortunate that certain rumours are being circulated that the Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust is in some way endorsing, supporting or promoting the book Lives of Sri Aurobindo by Peter Heehs. We would like to reiterate what has been our consistent stand since October 2008, namely:
“Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust does not approve and has nothing to do with the book entitled The Lives of Sri Aurobindo written by Peter Heehs and Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust is not in any way responsible for the contents or the interpretations of the material contained therein…”
This is to re-affirm that the stand of the Ashram Trust has been consistent and remains unchanged. The book is not sold from any department of the Ashram.
Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust is fully aware of its responsibilities and its actions are determined keeping in view the vision and values it is supposed to uphold.
