GENESIS OF “PROF KAMAL DAS” ESQ. AND REASONS FOR HIS MANIFESTATION
Manoj Das did not want to go public; I also did not want, when I forwarded to Tusar the disgusting letter of “Prof Kamal Das” targeting SAICE (and of course Manoj Das Gupta). But we are living between the power of the 17 and that of the 24 November, everything is exploding. So here is the answer, to those wondering how “Prof Kamal Das” was conceived and born – and why I was the recipient of his four horrendous emails. As somebody in this forum has pointed out, I have managed to stick under the gentleman’s skin.
The court case against the Ashram Trust and the five trustees, following four court cases against Peter Heehs, was born in relationship to the contested biography – originally. But events prove that the book is a pretext; the real matter is assaulting Manoj Das Gupta and the trustees and take over Ashram management, crushing any opposition by all means. From what is emerging, there are compelling reasons for this operation other than those so far foreseen. But contrarily to most instigators or instigated ones, I have read the book and, as other Aurovilians who have done it, I cannot be fooled. I am aware that in spite of its flaws, language or whatever its detractors point out, there are accusations at the border line of insanity, even turning hilarious. In the light of such evidences many in Auroville cannot understand how the court cases are not dropped as “frivolous petitions” and the petitioners are not severely warned and fined, to say the least.
I have written three detailed refutations concerning some of the most appalling accusations. Namely: 1) Tantric sexuality & related matters. 2) Schizoprenia, hereditary insanity etc. 3) Supermind & immortality. I wrote these papers by the same procedure I used to write papers to discuss them as public interactions with the professors, assistants and students of the Faculty of History at Milano (Government) University. Henceforth I listed in my papers the allegations on these themes presented by 1) Sraddhalu Ranade. 2) The Information Handbook. This is an 82 page pamphlet which someone had received from Sraddhalu’s mother, in the office inside the Ashram compound which had been M. Pandit’s. Successively I confronted those accusations with the corresponding quotes (which I had scanned and reproduced in their entirety) from the Heehs biography.
This exercise proved automatically, without any need for comments, that those tragicomic allegations have been fabricated by Holy Inquisitors for the exclusive purpose of witch hunt, heretic’s burning, demonization of the author and canonization of the devil he is. An operation that points ineluctably to the shadow and projection of the shadow, as the Mother calls this engineering machine, and which in Integral Yoga takes the name of evil persona, in Sri Aurobindo’s language. But still I had to discover how deep and far can the phenomenon reach, in his trajectory hitting me directly as well.
I had circulated the three refutations I have mentioned among a restricted number of people. However, I received an email from Alok Pandey (still I don’t know informed by who), complaining; he proposed a discussion where the two of us were free to forward the resulting emails exchange to anyone we felt appropriate to involve. I accepted, my attitude having always been to list evidences and discuss them, dispassionately, appealing to reason. Trusting that, even in the most obstinately perverse, reason can emerge and accomplish the miracle. The (visible) email addresses to whom Alok forwarded his comments were Sraddhalu, Deshpande, Ananda R., Kittu R., Raman R., Govind, and Sandeep (formerly known as Auroman). From the comments I received from some of these people it was clear that others in Alok’s group had read my refutations (which in the meantime I had revised, adding or shifting material), partially or in full.
In accepting the discussion I expressed my concern, of a dual nature. On one side, the peremptory rejection of any court case among inmates, in overt violation of the Mother’s injunctions; this stand, which unites all of us in Auroville, applies even more forcefully when targeted are the Sri Aurobindo Ashram trustees and Trust. My other major concern is the riddle of accusations, against the book and Peter Heehs, so delirious that many people end up laughing. But alas, instead of a rational, meticulous debate, point by point, on well-defined issues, the replies I got were the same old stuff going back and forth for the past two years. Peter Heehs is the greatest evil being in the whole history of creation, the Master is demonically vilified by the traitor etc.; besides legitimizing the court case against Manoj and the trustees by the repertoire all of us know by heart. Starting, sadly, from Alok, who wrote more than half a dozen emails in two days, at least 3956 pages each – and which I diligently read. The outcome was that some prominent Aurovilians, flooded with incessant invectives and jeremiads, refused to read altogether. Confronted with that camp’s usual tactics of beating around the bush, without quoting anything substantial to prove accusations that are groundless, I forwarded them my first refutation, Tantric sexuality &
Co. But apart from Sandeep (who lives in the ), all others went on beating around the bush with their customary repertory, or eschewed replying altogether. USA
By then it had become unmistakably clear that my wasting so much time, in the sincere attempt to make some of those ‘teachers’ revert to reason, was pure Utopia. Aware that nothing would come out of it, the whole charade was a pretext to bury my arguments, and time was running short, I bypassed refutation no. 2 (schizophrenia, hereditary insanity & Co.); I forwarded instead, directly, refutation no. 3: supermind & immortality. In order to clear Sraddhalu’s astounding assertions, plus those in the Information Handbook equally untenable, an on top ridiculous, I went on reproducing pages and pages from Peter’s biography – along with quotes from Sri Aurobindo, Nirod, Amal Kiran and, yes, even Pranab (the latter was quoted in Mirror of Tomorrow, but much conveniently obliterated). As with the other two, this confutation settles the matter for good, at every level – but also raises most disquieting questions, for obvious reasons. What kind of “teaching” is this? What “knowledge” is being bestowed?
It is then, and only then, as soon as I forwarded the confutation on supermind/immortality, that “Prof Kamal Das” materialized out of his nether space, hitting me in all his fury; I got the first two emails in one day. As if this were not enough, that very same day I was presented a photocopy of his horrific letter against MDG and SAICE… which had been handed over by Sraddhalu’s mother to a Western stranger, in M. Pandit ex office, inside the Ashram compound. It was October 25. The second hearing was scheduled the next day.
The mystery of Prof’s identity can be solved, among others, in the light of certain details I am aware of, but which right now I don’t feel disclosing. Others are pointing out the same name(s). Paulette
