Peter Heehs is writing a biography of Sri Aurobindo due to be published next year

A couple of weeks ago, our Savitri study group in Manhattan had the privilege of meeting Peter Heehs, a historian who is writing a biography of Sri Aurobindo due to be published next year. Peter Heehs is also the author of a paper entitled The uses of Sri Aurobindo: mascot, whipping boy, or what?, and a wonderful little book called Nationalism, Terrorism, Communalism.
In both the paper and the book, he thoroughly investigates all the allegations of Sri Aurobindo having been an “extremist” or a “Hindu supremacist” and shows that they simply do not hold water.
Peter was quiet and unassuming, and I really enjoyed meeting him... Meeting Peter Heehs from The Stumbling Mystic by ned Matagiri
