I was let free to grow at my own pace and rhythm

from Paulette (paulette@auroville.org.in) date 16 November 2009 14:08 Please post this comment: When I first came to the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, in 1973, none of the old Indian sadhaks to whom I related enforced on me anything, whether a particular yogic approach, or the concept of Avatar, Divine Mother etc.: I was let free to grow at my own pace and rhythm. One day, years later, I suddenly realized that Sri Aurobindo is an Avatar – and the Mother, the Divine Mother: my consciousness had widened enough to introject these truths.

It is certainly not straitjacketing people that we can force them to share our beliefs. What’s needed is expansion of consciousness – not dogmas. Paulette 7:11 AM, November 17, 2009

from Paulette (paulette@auroville.org.in) date 17 November 2009 07:42 Please post my reply: Tusar, this is exactly what I mean, where is disagreement? I know very well what dogma is, having been brought up in a country, Italy, where you were excommunicated and went to hell if you didn’t endorse unconditionally all the dogmas set by the Catholic Church.

The mystery of the avatar is so unfathomable that only through consciousness it can be apprehended – not through indoctrination and threats. No matter how long it takes, it is for one’s psychic being to find out the truth. Nobody else can do the job, there are no other ways. Paulette 7:52 AM, November 17, 2009

Re-discovering Indian psychology- Hindustan Times
Sri Aurobindo's vision of an impending change in the consciousness of humankind prompted the Indian Academy of Applied Psychology to ask Dr Matthijs Cornelissen from the Netherlands to organise this conference.
He has lived in the ashram for almost 30 years and values the Indian tradition. During his lectures on Sri Aurobindo's vision of psychology in America and Europe, he noticed that there is a big demand for teachers of Indian psychology in the West. The many conference sponsors included the Indian Council of Philosophical Research and the Infinity Foundation of USA.
