Ashram doesn't own the teachings of Sri Aurobindo

Numerically, the members of Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Puducherry are a miniscule among the devotees of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo, but a handful of them at the helm have an inflated status owing to legal safeguard. Any challenge to their supremacy, understandably, is resented. Fortunately, the Ashram doesn't own the teachings of Sri Aurobindo but now an effort is on to establish a kind of outsourced certifying authority to denounce alternative interpretations and critical impressions. While we welcome their expose on indiscretions committed by inmates, any attempt to homogenize the legacy of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo will be resisted. [TNM55]
