Le zandu balm hui hay in a wrong way

[Response to False Propaganda Larry Seidlitz says: February 28, 2012 at 4:18 am I believe that important falsehoods that should be countered are in the court complaints against the ashram as well as earlier cases against Peter Heehs. These documents characterize the contents of the book The Lives of Sri Aurobindo in false ways, ascribing to it assertions that it does not make and in places even contradicts.

Simultaneously, Larry Seidlitz should also strive to disclose as to why the author thought it fit to rub people the wrong way with a harsh and disparaging tone at the first place. And, whether the gang of four egged him on to such an extreme, or he, on his own, was out to settle past scores? These basic queries remain unanswered even after three and half years. [TNM55]
