The new Auroville Library opens Monday 28 November at 9 am. Parking is along the Ring Road, opposite the Library. Gratitude to former librarian Juergen, whose idea and vision it was to create the right Library for Auroville; without his dream, his relentless energy and push, there would be no new Library here today. Tomatis Programmes: available for both therapeutic purposes and language assimilation. The Tomatis Method addresses not just problems and disabilities, but enhances potential and creativity in its wide range of applications.

We ponder the coming and the going of life as we perceive it... people we know go, souls take birth in new bodies that we learn to know. Maurizio Gabriel: a fine musician; a guitarist. Not only a performer but a teacher, supporting numerous young would-be musicians on the intricacies and style of being a good player, Gabriel will be missed by many; as a musician, as a friend and as a gentle man, always soft-spoken, with a humor that brought laughter to our midst. A Dieu Gabriel.

Nearly 100 years before the World Trade Towers became associated with Sept. 11, Mohandas K. Gandhi launched the modern nonviolent movement on Sept 11, 1906.

To mark this 100-year anniversary and the power and impact of Gandhi’s nonviolent movement, worldwide screenings are being organized of the 1982 movie, Gandhi, along with a debut release of a 10-minute short film entitled Satyagraha: 100 Years of Nonviolence. Auroville is pleased to partner in this anniversary by screening at 9:00 am Gandhi along with the short film Satyagraha (10 min).
At 3 pm Satyagraha The Film Opera: This luminous visionary opera tells the story of how Mahatma Gandhi developed the philosophy of satyagraha. With Music by Philip Glass.

Background: True unity presupposes that nothing from the whole is missing and therefore implies a culture of synthesis, a capacity to harmonise contraries which has not been sufficiently cultivated in Auroville. Yet, synthesis is the very core of Sri Aurobindo's action as well as the constant invitation of the Mother to Aurovilians to learn and practice what Auroville must be. But we are not yet free from the habit of splitting, judging and imposing our own partial views in the name of truth. The actual capacity of synthesis has not been developed and the raison d'etre of our collective life is therefore still missing. That is why some of us have decided to meet regularly to explore and learn what happens when we choose synthesis as our only possible law and method. From within that perspective we will look at Auroville's issues.
Process: We do not want to debate issues. We want to examine what the synthesis of divergent points of view is. That is, what is the truth which is inclusive? The issues at hand are an occasion for us to learn, to progress, to become more and more capable of synthesis. All are welcome! Guests, please excuse us.
