Koodam

Yesterday afternoon, Elvira and Sacha presented, at Unity Pavilion, a new project called Koodam. It aims at finding a new approach to resolving conflict. At the moment, anybody who seeks a solution to a dispute has but one choice: The City Council. The Auroville Koodam has been created to support Aurovilians who face difficult conversations, communication blockages or conflict. It is a move away from the idea of wrong vs. right and a judiciary system, and towards, instead, the idea of multiple truths, Read more

Auroville Pioneers: Shyama part 1

Francois and Rakhal have, over three years, interviewed the few Aurovilians who were greatly blessed to meet Mother when she was still in her human body. They put the first stones, and dug the first holes for planting trees, at a time when not much else was there, of Auroville. There are no more than thirty of these Aurovilians still with us and the project aims at preserving their memories for future generations. It also aims to honour them as our elders, and to help revive our spirit and keep us on the path to realizing The Dream. Listen to Shyama`s incredible life journey here.

The New Being
On January 1, 1969, starting just after midnight, Mother felt an immense personality, something very material and luminous. It was very powerful but its character was a smiling benevolence, a peaceful joy and a blossoming in the joy and the light. It came directly into Mother's body and gave the feeling of something that had come to stay. Mother wondered if it was the personality which would later manifest in supramental forms of if it would manifest in the body of the intermediary being, the superman. After that , Mother's body no longer... Read more

The Universal Mother
Sri Aurobidno tells us that Mother's prayers in Her book "Prayers and Meditations" are mostly written in an identification with the earth-consciousness. The Mother in the lower nature addresses the Mother in the higher nature, the Mother herself carrying on the sadhana of the earth-consciousness for the transformation. These prayers are written in 1914. Half of century later, in Her Agenda, Mother tells of enfolding the earth and seeing a changed earth with a glorious inner light. Later She explains that Her body was built for the purpose.. Read more

Invitation by Sri Aurobindo
Invitation With wind and the weather beating round me Up to the hill and the moorland I go. Who will come with me? Who will climb with me? Wade through the brook and tramp through the snow? Not in the petty circle of cities Cramped by your doors and your walls I dwell; Over me God is blue in the welkin, Against me the wind and the storm rebel. I sport with solitude here in my regions, Of misadventure have me a friend. Who would live largely? Who would live freely? Here to the wind-swept uplands ascend. I am the lord of tempest and mountain, I am the Spirit Read more

Aswapati and Sri Aurobindo
Aswapati and Sri Aurobindo in Savitri : The book of the Traveller of the Worlds, in which the levels of the World Stair are described, contains one of the great revelations of Savitri. It is of prime importance to realize that the Traveller, named Aswapati, is Sri Aurobindo himself writing from his experience. Savitri is given to us to participate and grow in its reality. If thought of as the poetic experiences of a mythical or legendary figure, the experience of sharing in Sri Aurobindo’s mantric evocations might become removed from us.

The walls of reality
The walls of reality: shedding our evolutionary impediments : Seeing the world from inside out, normally we humans are not aware that our perceptions of Reality are not direct, and therefore not really real, because we are enclosed within the deforming walls of the evolutionary species to which we belong. This existential way of being became critically important in the experiments of quantum physics, where Reality remains indefinable and only the interaction of the scientific instruments with Reality can be interpreted.

True philosophy- West and East
‘Philosophy had become too much a thing of abstractions, a seeking for abstract truths in a world of ideas and words rather than what it should be, a discovery of the real reality of things.’ (Sri Aurobindo) True philosophy in the East, but originally also in the West, was indeed a search for mental truth but at the same time for ways to apply such truth to life. Essentially the true philosopher is a yogi and the yogi a philosopher.
