An unfortunate statement...The editors seem to be too confident...This is too presumptuous...dubious and self-contradictory

DB wrote: The scrupulous avoidance of stereotypical usage of words through at least two means: (1) to keep one's language expression within the limits of one's experience; and (2) to handle language creatively - is mandatory to prevent the easy slippage into the "integral religion" of "conscious evolution." In this regard, Sri Aurobindo himself gives us the best example. Further, he coins a completely different dictionary for his own use in the Record of Yoga. DB.... Permanent Link
- First is that an assertion which can be verified?
- and next if true, is the fact that it was not published by either Sri Aurobindo or the Mother because they wished to resists its slippage into the discourse regime of the (pseudo)enlightenment industry?
- or even mis-interpreted by the aspiring sadhak or sadhika?
- or did he just wish for these to simply function as his own personal notes and reflections?

We became attracted to the works of Sri Aurobindo, a freedom fighter, mystic, and highly accomplished yogi who had lived much of his life in deep contemplation in Pondicherry, India. Joined in this work later by a Frenchwoman, Mirra Alfassa, who eventually came to be known as the Mother, his great task was to anchor into the collective consciousness of humanity what he referred to as the ‘supramental force', a force that he claimed would most surely awaken humanity into her true evolutionary destiny as a supramental species, as far beyond the current human species as humanity is beyond the apes.
Grace and I spent much time in Auroville, the city of human unity founded by the Mother after the death of Sri Aurobindo. We connected deeply with the spirit of these two visionaries, and had some powerful glimpses of the supramental realms, which they had promised would soon be manifested in the mass consciousness of the Earth. We spent a lot of time meditating in the Matrimandir, a golden sphere in the center of Auroville, which represented a vehicle for the descent of this supramental force...

Angry outbursts followed, particularly from those who considered that they had been elected. Finally two members each of the Council, the Working Committee and of the proposed planning team sat together for a long afternoon. Focusing on ‘what shall we do next?' they hammered out a proposal. The following day, in a full meeting of all three groups, this proposal was accepted with minor modifications and published in the News and Notes, the weekly newsletter.
A novelty in the way l'Avenir d'Auroville will function is that the meetings of its coordinators will be open to the public. This is a historic first (for Auroville!) To prevent misunderstandings and coordinate activities, monthly meetings between the Council, the Working Committee and the coordinators have been scheduled. And the groups agreed that the Working Committee and Auroville Council will evolve a fair workable system to resolve appeals against decisions of working groups, including those of L'Avenir d'Auroville.
Joint efforts have, indeed, paid off. And one other major point was gained from the process: all agree that the functioning and method of decision making of the Residents' Assembly has to be finalised. The Working Committee has promised to submit a proposal to the Residents' Assembly soon.

PUDUCHERRY: The 135th birth anniversary of Sri Aurobindo was observed here on Wednesday at the ashram.
A large number of devotees from within the country and from abroad thronged the ashram premises from early morning to offer prayers. A mass meditation was organised and the room used by Aurobindo was thrown open to the public on the occasion.

Some, like Buddha and his whole lineage, have declared that the world is incorrigible and the only thing to do is to get out of it because it can never change -– it changes, but really remains the same. The result is an attitude of perfect acceptance. And the goal is to get out, that is, to escape the world as it is.
Then there are the others, who sense that mankind is striving toward a progressively realized perfection. I see more and more that the two movements complement each other, and not only complement each other, but are almost indispensable to each other...
My old mantra keeps the outer being very quiet: OM, Namo, Bhagavateh. Three words which to me mean:
OM: I implore the Supreme Lord.Namo: I obey Him. Bhagavateh: Make me divine.
Nothing is impossible. Amen, Mother. May we be receptive to you always. Posted by ned on August 6, 2007. Filed under Aphorisms, Contemplations, Inspiration, Integral Philosophy, Sadhana.

There are a number of different narratives interwoven in Alfassa's life, most dramatically the transformation of a girl from a non-religious family in France into a woman worshipped by thousands in India as an incarnation of the Divine Mother. ; the first Westerner to become an Indian guru 
The Mother herself did not care for biographies of her life, and never wrote a comprehensive or systematic account of her life. However a lot of biographical information is found scattered through her works, in her correspondence and talks with disciples, and in several Ashram publications . These have been gathered in compilations by devotees, and the compilations and the original material also serve as reference for several on-line biographies.
A second problem is that many of the experiences related by the Mother and Sri Aurobindo to their disciples do not sit well with the secular Western mind, and hence cannot be easily presented without seeming incredible or fantastic. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
