Growth Management for Greenbelt

The Auroville Integral Sustainability Insitute for the 4th time invited group of post graduate students of planning from Queens University, Canada to be part of learning exchange between Auroville and them.
Anna Geladi, Phillip Pirell along with Lalait came to our studio to invite us to a presentation on Growth Management Framework for Settlement in Auroville Green Belt, which would take place on Friday 15th at 4.30pm at SAIIER Conference room.
Both Anna and Phillipe found out the particularities of the space, and complexity of given topic, which requires a bit different approach to other planning in the world. Yet, the group of 12 students with their professor, managed to focus on the topic of development in green belt, and came up with suggestion, which we would hear at the presentation.

AV Safety and Security

Yesterday’s Information Meeting of Auroville Safety & Security Team at SAWCHU, Bharat Nivas, Pavilion of India was not well attended from the side of community.
Current AV Safety&Security Team , consisting of Samuel, Indra, Srijita, Mattheiu, Peter, Carlos, and the guards, which took its place about year and a half ago, shared intensively with us what are they going through, changes they have implemented in their work, obstacles, scope of work, and future plans. In all they also emphasized the importance of prevention rather than intervention. In this aspect collaboration with the community is of utmost importance. They would like to have wider interaction with the members of the community from sharing of information to the appropriate attitude of each of the member of the community. Just for an example – in past year 90% of thefts occurred due to the fact that people leaved the doors unlocked!

Absence of love and fellow-feeling is not necessary for nearness to the Divine; on the contrary , a sense of closeness and oneness with others is apart of the divine consciousness into which the sadhak enters by nearness to the Divine and the feeling of oneness with the Divine. …In this yoga the feeling of unity with others, love, universal joy and Ananda are an essential part of the liberation and perfection which are the aim of the sadhana.

When you awake, you cross a line of no return, and you never see the world in the same way. You are still dreaming—because you cannot avoid dreaming, because dreaming is the function of the mind–but the difference is that you know it’s a dream.

To Heal Skin Problems

Sarah arrived in Auroville as one of many Weltwaerts volunteers from Germany, and has decided to work with plants, since that is her passion, and maybe her future line of work with environmental science. Most of time here she spent at Botanical Garden continuing with the work of a garden someone started last year., and as she mentions, some one will continue after her …

Sarah compiled booklet, which supposed to be the first one in the series, on Local Medicinal Plants in Tamil Nadu. That one is focused on healing skin problems with local plants.
So many possibilities, and freedom to chose , would be high on the list of things Sarah like about Auroville, followed by her good relationship with Makachi, a Tamil woman with an enormous knowledge on plants and their uses, who generously shared her knowledge with Sarah…..

The integral Yoga is so called because it aims at a harmonised totality of spiritual realisation and experience. Its aim is integral experience of the Divine Reality, what the Gita describes in the words samagram mam, “the whole Me” of the Divine Being. Its method is an integral opening of the whole consciousness, mind, heart, life, will, body to that Reality, to the Divine Existence, Consciousness, Beatitude, to its being and its integral transformation of the whole nature.
