[Introduction Letters Michael Murphy to the Managing Trustee
Letter to the Managing Trustee, from Michael Murphy
Dear Manoj–
And among those of us acquainted with Ashram politics, admiration for you, Manoj, and for the others there who support Peter's work has grown enormously. Many of us are inspired by the courage and wisdom you have shown in the midst of the controversy surrounding the new biography. Your leadership reflects the fearlessness Sri Aurobindo valued. He, after all, went where his work and vision led in spite of the consequences.
For all of this, I salute and thank you. You are one of my new heroes.
With fond regards,
Michael Murphy] 3:47 PM
