Birth anniversary of SriMaa celebrated at Koraput on 21st Feb-2012 Tuesday, 21 February 2012 09:10 | Written by Ch. Santakar
Birth anniversary of Sri Maa was celebrated at Sri Aurobindo Bhavan , Koraput on 21st Feb-2012 . While children and followers of Sri Maa & Sri Aurobindo offered Dhup and Flowers at the Relics, the presence of eminent Sadhaks like Anadi Bhai added more strength to the aspiration of all. 

Those who see Sri Aurobindo and the Mother as separate from each other are frankly making a huge mistake. Both of them always held that they were the same consciousness and that there was no distinction between them.

aurotruths commented on New content: Attempts to create an "Aurobindonian religion" … it must be said that just because Makarannd Paranjape thinks that They encouraged a cult, it doesn't mean that it was so. Those who opine upon and judge Sri Aurobindo and The Mother superficially are likely to derive conclusions that differ from those clearly spelled out by Sri Aurobindo and The Mother Themselves. We therefore do not need a Makarand Paranjape to tell us whether Sri Aurobindo and The Mother contradicted themselves or not.

Anonymous Sep 29, 2010 12:34 AM Your comments if studied over a period of time reflect your penchant for appearing objective and fair while leaving a backdoor for escape. Essentially you go with the weather. It’s not the royalty but the wider damage done to the scholarship on Sri Aurobindo at stake.

BABUL'S WORLD: Judgement of The Mother But at present you hardly come across as one who has the Knowledge or the Call. I can imagine there is much which can be changed for the better, in Auroville, in the Ashram, in India, in the world; but where does that change begin? Nay, Their workings are far more complex, intricate, and mysterious, and "One man's perfection still can save the world…" 9 July 2008 14:00

We are not suggesting that the institutions that Sri Aurobindo and The Mother have established, such as the Sri Aurobindo Ashram or Auroville, are free of problems or cannot be criticized. Everyone is free to poke their nose into the internal affairs of these institutions or criticize them to their heart’s content if it so pleases them… Lastly, we do not claim to posses the Truth, but we believe that we can help remove those obstacles that come in the way of or obfuscate Truth - especially those obstacles that are in the form of deliberate misrepresentation and distortion of facts or the creation of myths – by providing more reliable, accurate and  complete information. Administrators.

Many people think we are trying to establish a “new religion” or that we are against this or that religion; there are many ideas like that everywhere. But that doesn’t interest us at all! (The Mother, 27 February 1965)
Sri Aurobindo Ashram -Delhi Branch founded on 12 Feb 1956.
The Delhi Branch was officially inaugurated on 12 February, 1956, with the Blessings of the Mother. To the great joy and gratitude of spiritual seekers in Northern India, the Mother graciously granted the very first Sacred Relics of Sri Aurobindo to be enshrined here on 5 December, 1957.

He may have borrowed this notion from Aurobindo (I think Wilber has not acknowledged the full extent of Aurobindo’s influence on his writings). Aurobindo wrote that he was a practitioner of “mystic empiricism”, an undertaking, he believed, was empirical in just the way scientific inquiry is empirical!
But then Aurobindo never explained, although he wrote several big books, the actual process by means of which he allegedly arrived at knowledge of “occult worlds, entities, and forces”, not to mention the modus operandi of harnessing them, e.g., “Yogic force”, to allegedly cure illnesses, influence world events, etc.
