Peter Heehs is studying and practising Sri Aurobindo’s Yoga

Manoj Das Gupta, Managing Trustee, Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust, wrote on 21 June 2010 a letter to the Regional Registration Officer, Pondicherry, for the extension of the visa of Peter Heehs by five years. This looks strange, to say the least. He had asked Peter Heehs to stay away from the Archives a few months ago, but did not officially assign work in any department of the Ashram. Now here’s a letter of recommendation! If Peter Heehs is here for the purposes of “studying and practising Sri Aurobindo’s Yoga", as the letter states, we do not know in what exact capacity he is here—as a private individual or as a member of the Ashram. It is obligatory for the Managing Trustee to clarify the point. ~ RYD
