and the World? India
Many thanks for Robert's article.
In the midst of sophisticated discussions that are cropping up, here is someone who is not afraid of thinking with his heart.
Having been intimately connected with the French team of Auroville promoters in the 60s and attentive to the frustration of volunteers from the "other" teams, I have dearly paid as a victim of intestine conflicts and clay-hurling, before stopping to consider myself as an indispensable missionary of the New Consciousness.
Maintaining my faith firm, I have a conviction that in spite of all his gentleman-like compassion, Sri Aurobindo is a personified vajra (thunderbolt) of the Spirit : knowingly or unknowingly whosoever chooses to rub up the wrong way is sure to learn the Natural Law of perishing thunder-struck. A consummate connoisseur of the Occult, the Mother was far from ignorant of the incompatible forces that she maintained in equilibrium; she has not lost control of them and will triumph over their momentarily centrifugal lust to rule.
Let go. Let God.

This essay is being sent out to past and present members of the Auroville Advisory Council as well as educators, writers, and students throughout the world who have distinguished themselves as supporters of the incomparable work of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. For many of you this will be a painful confrontation and for others, a breath of fresh air. What will be made clear is that THE TIME HAS COME for an end to the stultifying dogma that has reduced the most important spiritual work of the age to an arrogant, fundamentalist, and elitist cult. Because of the dogged refusal of the Auroville elites to engage in sincere and honest discussion of issues essential to the revelation of Sri Aurobindo’s and the Mother’s knowledge and mission, the conversation is being widened to include members of the larger human community who have been harmed by their failures and who are within their rights, as we are, to demand an open and transparent accounting.
