Kireet Joshi on Self Governance

In Auroville’s history Chairman Dr Kireet Joshi has talked to all Aurovilians in 2003 at Bharat Nivas about Self Governance.
It brings back to memory all the interrelations between Auroville, India and the world, beginning with 1968, designing a very clear and precise picture in which one can follow the progressive roads taken inspired by Mothers Auroville Charter.
Auroville is presently called to traverse a new evolutionary stage. The fruits of His Dialogue are still alive and wait to be lived and manifested, at the same time supported by the Eternal Breath inspiring us on the way to new Creations.
With immense and profound gratitude to our precious Guide and Comrade, who is always actively present among us.
By GangaLakshmi

C’est une remémoration à compter de 1968, au travers d’un tableau très clair et très précis, avec toutes les inter-relations complexes d’Auroville , de l’Inde et du monde - on peut y suivre les pistes progressives inspirées par la Charte d’Auroville de Mère.
Auroville est actuellement appelé à franchir une nouvelle étape évolutive et les fruits de Son Dialogue sont toujours vivants et attendent de se vivre et de se manifester; portés parallèlement par le Souffle Eternel avec des inspirations en voie de nouvelles Créations.
Avec une immense et profonde gratitude à notre Guide et Camarade précieux, toujours activement présent par nous.

Cracking Good Tales

Derek Hook, a brilliant story teller, offered a performance accompanied with music and mysterious sounds on Sunday night at Solitude Farm for children and adults.
Humility, love, identity quest, dreams and death were the central themes of the tales. We had an opportunity to interview Derek where he explains the meaning of his tales and gives information for those who wish to follow him.
He also recites "Stand Still", a poem that he finds particularly inspiring.
