People like you and me should not unnecessarily criticise others

From Jitendra Sharma to "Tusar N. Mohapatra" date 1 November 2010 19:10 subject Reply to Mr. Sunil S.R.
Dear Mr. Sunil,
                        You are judging other Members of the Ashram and telling bad things about them. Several times, the Mother has warned not to judge others in such a manner.
                       As you say, the Mother is omnipresent. She knows how things are in the Ashram and let Her do whatever She likes. People like you and me should not unnecessarily criticise others. It serves no constructive purpose.
                       A person, who is not happy about the Ashram and its Trustees, can always leave the Ashram and settle down elsewhere in this vast world. Who gives a shit? Sri Aurobindo and the Mother are really omnipresent and are not limited to the Ashram in Pondicherry. Dr. Jitendra Sharma, Calicut (Kerala)


  1. This is not about the members. Nor it is a question of being happy it is question of right and wrong a question truth and falsehood a question of Dharma and Adharma. It is a question of guarding the sanctuary of the Ashram.

    And if you are writing to be in the good books of the Trustees or seek some reward in the future you should seek that in the Divine and not in any human.

  2. Jitendra Sharma is absolutely right. None of us can and should try judging others and The Mother has repeatedly warned us all against it.

    Nobody is perfect and we all have our defects. So pointing fingers and blaming each other is completely counter-productive and goes against The Mother's and Sri Aurobindo's teachings.

    We should all mind our own business and do the best we can in our own areas and offer it to the Divine.

    Those of us who are interested in Sri Aurobindo's and The Mother's works and teachings are not here for MDG, Heehs, RYD, or Ranade. So let us not judge anyone and let us leave each one to his own destiny.
