We have no mandate to mix

From Tusar N. Mohapatra date 31 October 2010 19:06
The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have set forth a new path for their works, to follow which also demands that we eschew the tenets of traditional enunciations. The latter may seem impressive and imposing but we have no mandate to mix them with what are specifically prescribed by the masters.

This is the most difficult aspect of their teachings although initially one is drawn by the liberal notion that The Mother & Sri Aurobindo leave out nothing and synthesize everything. No doubt, they used to tolerate the fancies of their disciples until one was aware. But the basic principle was always the same: unreserved surrender. [TNM]
