Above all conflicts and disagreements

This website is a place of peace, harmony and love, above all conflicts and disagreements. It is a collective effort of many souls united in their aspiration and devotion to the Mother and Sri Aurobindo and the Supramental Force which they have brought down and is now in the process of transforming this earthly life to a life divine.

The site was inaugurated during 1998-99 with the encouragement and approval of the then Managing Trustee of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust. Later, in November 2002, further impetus was given by the present Managing Trustee to continue this effort. Over a period of time with the help of ashramites, aspirants and well-wishers, a very large collection of the writings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother and their disciples have been uploaded in our E-library.  
We are working to gather all relevant and important data on the Sri Aurobindo Ashram and the entire Sri Aurobindo community, including the many Centers and Ashrams devoted to Their vision.  It is an 'open source' approach to present a virtual Sri Aurobindo Ashram to the world. We intend to collect and integrate all information on Sri Aurobindo and the Mother and Their creation and make it available to all sincere seekers who are searching for a higher and truer way of life.
The number of hits the website is receiving is steadily increasing. During the last six months there were more than 2.5 million hits and an extraordinary amount of additional data uploaded.  This has led to increased difficulty for viewers, as browsing speed and search functions have slowed. In an effort to improve the site, a decision has been taken to upgrade the hardware to a 'cloud compatible server' and reprogram and upgrade the present software into a powerful content management system (CMS).  We invite all devotees and disciples,  wherever they are, to participate and help enrich this website.  
Due to the collaborative nature of work, some errors are present in various sections. Viewers are requested to verify the content against the relevant printed material and whenever any discrepancies are found, to send us feedback so that all errors may be corrected. Guests who are seeking official information on the Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust, Pondicherry are requested to visit  
Hosting and hardware support is provided by some sincere sadhaks in America. The software for this website is prepared by a few members of Auroville. The content is collected and prepared by ashramites and many aspirants around the world. We are thankful to all disciples of the Mother and Sri Aurobindo  who have collaborated in this work, and grateful as well to all those who have offered their services to date.  If you would like to participate please  write to us
