The thing is that they have worked very well, a very thorough job, a fool proof plan, that is why they challenge with authority that Peter has done no editing and we are all clean. Yes they are clean in covering their tracks, but their tracks cannot cover the consciousness which betrays out the fact of what is divine and undivine. Their foolproof plan goes somewhat like this:
1. That they did not do any editing it was authorised by Nirodbaran and Amal Kiran. So they get a letter signed from them. Amal Kiran and Nirodbaran whom the Mother calls morons have no authority. But they have been peddling strongly that they do have the authority as they need that to protect themselves.
2. They have with them as proof that all their editing is being done by Sri Aurobindo himself. It looks like it is Sri Aurobindo who himself has corrected his own works, in this situation the question of any editing does not come into play. When I had insisted in not believing that it is Sri Aurobindo who has changed the meaning they had asked me to come back after some days to see the proof and I was shown on an old printed paper the corrections made, and it was in Sri Aurobindo’s hand writing. They have everything in Sri Aurobindo’s hand writing, “Look this is not Peter it is Sri Aurobindo correcting himself”. We can only wonder why after 50 years.
3. They entered the Sri Aurobindo Ashram as inmates. We are no outsiders, we are and represent Sri Aurobindo Ashram so it is authentic. We are the Archives department we have developed Archives Research and Development. So who are you going to catch as we are Sri Aurobindo! They had to create this Research and Development not for the growth of consciousness and its upward journey but to come out with their own versions successfully of what is Sri Aurobindo’s life and his works which were already printed approved and sealed.
