Atimanas Divas

Devotees throng Aurobindo Ashram on `supramental consciousness day` Deccan Herald Puducherry,Feb 29, 2012, (PTI)
Devotees today thronged the Aurobindo Ashram here and paid homage at the memorials of Sri Aurobindo and his spiritual collaborator, The Mother, on the occasion of the `Supramental Consciousness day`. It was on this day in 1956 that `the Mother` is believed to have realized the `supramental or divine consciousness` as a result of her spiritual experiments. The Ashram was established by Aurobindo on April 24, 1926. He passed away in 1950. The Mother (Mira Alfassa), who died in November 1973, founded Aurobindo International Centre of Education in 1952 and the international township of Auroville, 10 km from here, in 1968.

A critique of the book "The Lives of Sri Aurobindo" by Peter Heehs ... Posted by General Editor at 2/29/2012 09:33:00 AM The total number of Ashram inmates and devotees who protested silently from February 26th to 28th was around 270.

Govind Feb 17, 2012 06:06 AM "It is unfortunate that an inmate who has enjoyed the facilities and amenities provided by the Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust..."
At least this confirms from the proverbial horse’s mouth that this line that we have been hearing for more than a year from agents of the trust both on Savitri Era Open Forum and SAICE comes directly from "the very top"
They are speaking like owners or at least anna-daataa type father figures and openly patronizing Ashramites. Not only that they are laying claim to property and, much worse, loyalty that rightfully belongs exclusively to Mother Sri Aurobindo. 
Do they have no concern whatever that sadhaks will not tolerate this kind of a domineering attitude and this daylight robbery from Mother Sri Aurobindo?
