The Sri Aurobindo Ashram is a religious community located in Pondicherry, in the Indian territory of Puducherry. The ashram grew out of a small network of disciples who had accrued round Sri Aurobindo after he retired from politics and settled in Pondicherry in 1910. On 24 November 1926, after a major non secular cognizance, Sri Aurobindo withdrew from public view that allows you to hold his religious work. At this time he passed over the overall responsibility for the internal and outer lives of the sadhaks and the ashram to his religious collaborator, "the Mother", in advance referred to as Mirra Alfassa. This date is therefore normally known as the founding-day of the ashram, although, as Sri Aurobindo himself wrote, it had “much less been created than grown round him as its centre."
Life in the community that preceded the ashram became informal. Sri Aurobindo spent maximum of his time in writing and meditation. The 3 or 4 young men who had observed him to Pondicherry in 1910 lived with him and looked after the family. Otherwise they were loose to do as they wished. The Mother and French writer Paul Richard met Sri Aurobindo in 1914 and proposed that they bring out a monthly assessment; but after the outbreak of World War I, they have been obliged to go away India, and Sri Aurobindo had to do nearly all the paintings at the overview himself, helped a touch via the young guys who were residing with him.
