CIIS has been evolving right from its inception and right now they are offering some interesting courses relating to Sri Aurobindo. Leftist orientation is a drawback but also an opportunity for developing an integral perspective. Nothing could develop in India on such a scale, unfortunately.
Divinity of The Mother & Sri Aurobindo, however, can't be a matter of academic scrutiny. Sri Aurobindo can be taught on the basis of his writings but his ontology has gone topsy turvy after the religious dimension. So, any strict or rigorous study of their philosophy is fraught with disability.
Thus, a more balanced approach is needed to understand the new phenomenon that The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have inaugurated. Unfolding world events are also pointers and hence rigidity should be avoided. CIIS, obviously, has a big role here. TNM 27.01.21 #ARYA100Years (1914-21)
