Attempts to create an “Aurobindonian religion”:

Sri Aurobindo and The Mother have unambiguously stated that their ideals, teachings and the institutions that they have founded do not belong to any religion or religious body, in any name or form.

For instance, in Sri Aurobindo’s own words (The Teaching and the Ashram of Sri Aurobindo, 1934, p. 6): “The Ashram is not a religious association.

As is rightly observed by TNM, the task of fighting falsehood is likely to be an uphill task. But the journey uphill is as rewarding as the summit that is sought to be attained. Moreover, the investment that is made in this direction is independent of the results that might be obtained, because in spite of our individual or collective efforts Truth shall always prevail and falsehood can only tumble downhill and finally disintegrate into dust.
