Presentation of Inuksuk

Auroville radio was there last Sunday, to capture the peaceful moment around the Inuksuk (stone figures created by the first inhabitants of the Canadian north, the Inuit). It was built in the International zone by AVI Canada, along with Aurovilians born in Canada. A presentation of the monument and a meditation was followed by a round table to share experiences. Aurovilians, volunteers, newcomers and guests all took part, creating links between people of good will who would never have met all together otherwise, so: many thanks to Canada for such a great action for unity!

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.

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

For her it is important to look at silence as a living "presence" as opposed to perceiving silence as an "absence". Therefore, the need to integrate the practice of being restfully and quietly aware here-now. Read more
