Source of Silence
Nicole Christine is from Munich, Germany. She organizes and leads silent meditation retreats in India and abroad. In this interview Nicole delves into the source of silence within our own selves. She introspects on the transformative and pathfinding personal experiences that led her to look for truth and meaning beyond mind and matter. For her it is important to look at silence as a living "presence" as opposed to perceiving silence as an "absence".

Jazz Standards
Fresh Saturday night in the beginning of monsoon, but we were lucky because rain had stopped before the concert started. Gathered audience could listen to some classic jazz songs, sung by Nuria, who’s voice is highly trained but more inclined to opera singing, and was accompanied by Matthew on keyboards, Keith on bass and Suresh on drums. The mellow and somehow nostalgic mood of Duke Ellington songs was brightly interrupted by short Suresh solo on drums, which earned him laud applause from the audience. Read more

Les rescapés de l`été

Pour beaucoup, en mai, faut vite se barrer, échapper à ces foutus degrés qui montent, qui grimpent, qui escaladent sans se gêner, l'échelle d'un thermomètre déséquilibré. Que se passe-t-il alors dans la cité en plein été ? C'est la froide enquête que nous avons menée sous les rayons d'un soleil surexcité. Mais attention, si en juin, certains font les malins au loin sans penser à leurs voisins néo-urbains restés au turbin. En juillet faudra pas qu'ils se mettent à flipper de rentrer vite fait pour tout changer dans la continuité avec le Working Comittee. Sinon, en août, ils n'auront pas de casse-croute.

15 August

Today is a day for quiet reflection yet at the same time a day for celebration. The Independence of India and not surprisingly the birthday of Sri Aurobindo both fall upon August 15. Sri Aurobindo, at one period in his life actively involved in the fight for independence, retired from that work and took on the greater far-reaching inner work, which has brought us all here. The Amphiteatre at Matrimandir at 5:15 a.m. is the site of the traditional bonfire, accompanied by a reading of Savitri by the Mother accompanied by the music of Sunil. Next at Bharat Nivas at 8:30 the Indian flag will be raised, in a meditational moment of gratitude.Read more
