Reverting to referendum

[A DECLARATION OF SOLIDARITY Or we may decide that now is the time to make our voices heard…
There are vested interests attempting to create the impression that a majority of Ashramites are sympathetic to those filing lawsuits against the Trust, but nothing could be further from the truth. We will not allow this false and dangerous notion to gain further ground. This is  the time to stand firm, stand together in the face of this assault on the core values of our Ashram, to lend our voices in support of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother's institution and its appointed representatives against the forces that are out to destabilize our community.]

The Heehs camp has always maintained that the Ashram is beyond democratic principles and what the Trustees utter are inviolable lines of Veda. Hence, it’s good that they are now finding virtue in majority support and raising voices, thus recognizing that each individual vote matters. A referendum, we reiterate, would be the best means to assess and diffuse the present unrest blowing in the Ashram. [TNM55]
