SACSO Online

Sri Aurobindo Central Sales Organisation

An eCommerce website under development

This eCommerce website is being developed for the manufacturing units of the commercial trusts and some of the products can be ordered online from “Our Shop” option on the navigation bar. Inmates of Sri Aurobindo Ashram work in these units for practising Nishkam Karma, the way of  the Bhagavad Gita, along with the Works of Knowledge, the Works of Love and finally the Works of the Will in Life. Some of the units of the Trusts are listed below. The units which have a website are given in CAPS and a link is provided to browse the site.

The Mother had opened a shop called SAACSO, Sri Aurobindo Ashram Central Sales Organisation, which was closed down because Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust was advised not to carry on any commercial activity. We would like to carry forward the vision of the Mother to have a Central Sales Organisation for the commercial Trusts..

The name given by the Mother, therefore, has been  modified to SACSO which stands for Sri Aurobindo Central Sales Organisation and the purpose of the website is to display and sell online products of the manufacturing units of the commercial Trusts, whose one of the beneficiary is Sri Aurobindo Ashram Trust.

To see the products and place an order online, move the mouse on “Our Shop” option on the navigation bar and then move the mouse over to the name of the manufacture whose products you would like to see and have and then right click the mouse. The list of the products of that manufacturer will be displayed. Then add the item that you would like to have to your cart.
