You don't come to an Ashram to read the text

From Sunil sunilauro@gmail.com to tusarnmohapatra@gmail.com date 19 October 2010 18:50 subject For posting

When Savitri after following Death and crossing all the difficulties and planes goes and wins back the soul of Satyavan a feat only the divine Mother can do, Peter insists that they should be together in ‘lust’ and not the ‘in the same last’. He gives his nonsensical, fabricated argument with his logic and totally confuse or make somebody run in wild circles. A blind man leading a blind world to a blind hole.

Are you the public here to read Sri Aurobindo for the Light it brings or be fooled who are misleading the world under the disguise of editing and what not. They do it because they don’t have the experience of yoga. Yoga is not the words you read it is an experience an unlimited experience and this experience awakens the inner being which has the sight and its Light can distinguish the True from Falsehood. Do you go to a restaurant to eat only the menu. You don't come to an Ashram to read the text, you come to the Ashram for its spirituality and its experience but if you don't do the yoga sorry buddy no experience you are out, and being out they want to make it public that there is nothing but out. That is your loss your logic your nonsense not what is there in the Ashram. Certain trustees and others they openly say what spirituality, boy how you all missed the boat and because of that the darkness has flourished and Peter is a hero. Sunil S R

From the Supplement to the Revised Edition of Savitri (page 16-17)


(7) In a passage dictated by Sri Aurobindo in the Epilogue as part of Savitri’s final speech to Satyavan, these lines occur in the scribe’s hand:
Heaven’s touch fulfils but concels not our earth:
Our bodies need each other in the same last:
(719.24-25)
The expression “same last” has baffled attentive readers ever since it first appeared in print. Taking into account the implication of the first part of the line, the suggestion has been made that Sri Aurobindo might have said “lust”, using this word as he sometimes did to mean simply desire – particularly the normal physical desire between man and woman – with no pejorative connotation intended. The scribe it is supposed, could have heard it as “last”. ..

    Did Sunil really utter these words??? Then why is he eating the menu? Why does he hang around the Ashram and "read the text" instead of concentrating on spirituality and its experience?

    No wonder he is the "buddy" who is always "out."

    Sunil is hung up with some observations made by the editorial board (Peter was never the Editor of the Savitri as Sunil wrongly claims) regarding the "text" "last" and "lust". Isn't an editorial board entitled to share its observations? And that to in a Supplement? Does that amount to "tampering"??? Is that sacrilegious?

    Sunil would like us to believe so, but thankfully he will be able to impress only a Shelley or two who will drop him, as many have done in the past, as soon as they find out that when Sunil takes them to the restaurant he shall only feed them the menu.

    A.A.D.

  3. The pompous nobodies on the editorial board are entitled to nothing. What they do is a service to the Divine and has NOTHING to do with RIGHTS and ENTITLEMENTS. Whoever came up with that statement was arrogating to himself/herself rights they did not possess. The Ashram has no business officially speculating on alternative readings of Savitri based solely on it's own grammatical/contextual/content-based/ etc. etc. mentation-based ignorance. What the scribe heard is none of their business and shows a Titanic arrogance that would turn the whole Savitri topsy-turvy. What is there to prevent the same presumptuous brain from using the same logic to suggest alternative renderings of EACH LINE in Savitri? Nothing. There would be nothing to prevent each line of the Savtiri from being thrown into dispute. While you can keep mocking Sunil based on totally irrelevant counts, we all know what he meant by eat the menu, your own words, howsoever grammatically correct betray an alarming lack of intelligence and mala-fide intentions against those who choose to question the integrity and correctness of those who question the integrity and correctness of the Savitri itself.

  4. Ok, Moron-Fanatic, why are they called an "editorial board" if they are not even entitled, as you claim with YOUR RAVANA-STYLE arrogance, to expressing their views on the contents of a text?
    It is certain that you are unaware of the semantics of "editorial board" in English!

    Why? Are you, Sunil and other from your ilk planning to opt for an early retirement scheme? Don't give up so easily your Battle for Truth. Lay down your lives, become martyrs, the moment is now or never, a once in a life time opportunity to fame!
