Re: Corrections to textual excerpts of The Lives of Sri Aurobindo by Peter Heehs by koantum on Sat 27 Sep 2008 Profile Permanent Link [7:03 AM]
Thanks, Rich. Very timely. Hopefully it will restore some semblance of sanity. I am reminded of a note written by the Mother and, by her own account, inspired by the New Consciousness of 1969:
Why do men want to worship? It is much better to become than to worship! (Mother's Agenda, April 30, 1969)
As one who wants to become, I read Sri Aurobindo's books when I want to learn about the inner Sri Aurobindo, and I read Peter's refreshingly level-headed biography when I want to learn about the outer Sri Aurobindo. I don't mean this in a mutually exclusive sense. The outer Sri Aurobindo is an integral part of the inner. The hagiographies, which tell us more about their authors than about Sri Aurobindo, are for those who are content to worship — and to worship a figment of their imagination at that. No wonder they get upset if this clashes with reality.
