Features:
Publisher of Collaboration.
Description:
The primary purpose of the Sri Aurobindo Association is to distribute information about Sri Aurobindo, the Mother, and Auroville, and to support various projects related to the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Auroville, and work in America related to the Integral Yoga.
SAA publishes the journal "Collaboration", maintains a number of websites for various Sri Aurobindo centers, and administers 25 different e-mail lists related to the yoga. SAA is a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation. We forward donations to the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Auroville and to other foreign non-profit trusts sharing our mission to promote the teachings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. One-twelfth of each contribution goes to support Mother's work through SAA. We work to facilitate collaboration and cooperation among the community of devotees, especially through financial and logistical support of the annual AUM (All - USA - Meeting) conference, and support and coordination of lecture tours by sadhaks visiting the US. SAA does not represent the Sri Aurobindo community as any kind of authority.
Future Plans:
We have a number of publishing projects in the dream stage, including works by contemporary devotees of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother and an anthology of sadhak's poetry.
How you can help:
Donations to assist the work and subscriptions to "Collaboration" are most welcome.
