Please post the following in reply to what Deshpande has sent me (see below). I am always at loss with your various websites, I don’t know where the various postings and comments are.
There is no condescendence at all. As for going ballistic it is a fact, whether we like it or not, that one finds such people within as without this Path, all over the world. Yoga – Self-realisation! – is for very few, not to mention the Supramental Yoga; it is a matter of spiritual evolution, no one can play with this. Sri Aurobindo himself was absolutely against proselytizing avalanches of people who simply do not fit.
Individuals can go only as far as they are equipped for the journey, and that’s it. What’s unacceptable is when a certain type of people tries to impose on others peculiar beliefs, aids and devices which have nothing to do with Yoga and sadhana, and only point to the obvious absence of it. Paola de Paolis has written her text in response to a certain attempt of this nature.
