Comment by Shrikant Soman

This comment is from a Sadhak who is not so much an expert in these matters. When I went through the postings, I was actually elated in a strange and weird manner. It clearly appeared to me that the Lives of Sri Aurobindo by Peter Heehs is a very clear attempt to 'bring down' the spiritual height of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. And to a Sadhak who has made even an elementary progress on the Path, the attempt of Peter is a miserable failure. He has not been able to throw even a 0.1 % doubt on Sri Aurobindo and the Mother's spiritual heights.

Secondly, there may even be more attempts by other individuals. It is unavoidable. While it is good that we refute these attempts, we need not get 'disturbed' by them. Sri Aurobindo and the Mother are BEYOND the REACH of these people. I do NOT find anything SUBSTANTIAL, in spite of the laborious efforts made by Peter in his writings. Instead of downgrading Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, it actually results in UPLIFTING their stature - because it clearly shows that after digging the mountain, Peter could not even get a mouse, not even an ant !
