Lively Discussion (Photographer: Miriam)Despite the holiday Saturday the discussion on the second session on the Nation Soul was lively, and more spontaneous. But they all agreed upon to go back to basic text of the Mother and Sri Aurobindo to find the starting point of the research. The double, philosophical aspect on the subject lies within the nature of the Mother's world about it, and the nature of it by itself. We need to dwell into pshychic being of each nation, to grasp the fundamental genius, in order to bring it into the contact with the true spirits of other countries, and start the interaction of mutual respect and understanding.

Mr. Shimelis Adugna (Photographer: Miriam)The most interesting to Mr. Shimelis Adugna is the Auroville approach and active way on how to make this planet a better place to live in for all of us, as he emphasized – to go back to truth,to our inner strength, and to work on these to work together. He sees hope as a moving agent to create reality from the dreams and vision as the Mother envisioned. To him, and so many of us, this world has to be the world of sharing.
