"Measured and Detatched" - Sorry "Ned" - Peter Heehs does not come through measured or detatched. His personal venom and disdain for Sri Aurobindo and especially the Mother is evident in his words. Recently I heard a recording of his interview. It seemed like he enjoyed raising laughs talking derogatorily about the Mother (he speaks about he stopped Sri Aurobindo from smoking). He successfully made his fawning audience break into giggles. Well, you speak authoritatively about what Peter Heehs WANTED. Please refer the reading public to examples of his declared intentions. 11:51 AM, October 20, 2008 11:06 AM
The ringleaders of the excommunication movement have consciously or unconsciously incited forces that have arisen straight out of the dark side. Because of this there have been things that have happened that have physically crossed the lines of what can be called civilized behavior.
Those leading the charge against the author of this book have managed to evoke both psychological and physical forms of violence that desecrate the very principles of the yoga and mockingly trample on the large tolerant spirit of its founders. rich Reply

As for the Peter Heehs controversy I have no personal stake in it nor do I care much about the emotional reactions people are having to his biography. He has his opinions and my faith in Sri Aurobindo and the Mother is strong enough to not be affected by such trivial things. I do find it really sad that people who are *supposed* to be "spiritual" are resorting to such petty reactions and even to violence against Peter, if that's the case. It only shows the lack of actual spiritual experiences -- when you start having experiences you stop reacting like this. Posted by ned to Savitri Era Open Forum at 7:51 PM, October 20, 2008
