Just ordered "The Life Divine" printed in India at the Aurobindo Ashram

Re: Evolutionary Enlightenment takes another Postmodern Drubbing Lisaji said Today, 9:52 AM:

Andrew Cohen is a fine example of a living teacher who is easy to ridicule... I've found his commentary and teachings especially interesting, along with Ken Wilbers, - aside from the breadth Ken gives to theory, mainly because of how they utilize some of the most profound insights of Sri Aurobindo (among many other things) who continues to be a fundamental catalyst and inspirational in my own personal development.

I don't understand how people can allow themselves to get so comfortable with slating something that they have no first hand experience of. It seems incredibly immature to me to mock current 'enlightenment' teachings, which are designed to be ultimately, a collaborative ongoing process, using insights of some of the most committed capable people alive.
