The Manifestation of the Art Dome

A conversational interview between Sankalpa: Art Journeys intern Marichelle Gurski (US) and architect Peter A. (German Aurovilian) on his philosophy behind creating the double-dome structure of the Sankalpa Art Center. Sankalpa is sub-unit of Thamarai, including the center located behind Tibetan Pavilion in the International Zone and the Art Cart parked at Visitor's Center. Sankalpa provides the community with creative spaces for transformation of both inner and outer worlds, by breaking down the barriers that inhibit self-expression, making art accessible to all, and facilitating human unity through art.

This is an open dialogue about Peter's journey to Auroville where he found a fascination with geodesic domes and their application in the community. We are given a rare glimpse into the wisdom of the stories he has to tell and how the structure of these domes bring people together.

Welcome to ‘A Library Of Things’

Alot - A Library Of Things is an initiative taken by Earth&Us, which is an Auroville unit working as sustainability consultants and resource management experts.
We tend to own a lot of things but seldom use all of the things we possess, resulting in clutter in our cupboards and our lives. We want to possess and store things to satisfy the impatience of having things readily available for our use, even it is just a one time use.
Earth&Us have come up with a solution. Alot, which acts as library of things, literally. The idea is to have collective archive of tools and products which can be accessed by the community and returned back to the library, making it readily available for others to re-use. This takes away the huge burden of purchasing, storing and maintaining a lot of our things. Imagine buying a drilling machine, to put few shelves and not finding a need for it for next few years or the toys the children get bored of faster than even seasons can change. Mass consumptions demands mass production and ultimately causes mass destruction of our natural resources. The library of things poses as a hope of not only giving respect to the great tools we invent but also paves way for a community to come closer and relate to each other through the service of sharing. This is an innovative concept which will of course go through its teething process and as a progressive community, who encourages collective sharing, we must take initiative to support this new venture, which promises to bring abundance and a joy of sharing in our lives.

What is Petra?

We were hosting Uma and Torkil this morning in our studio, and the talk was on PETRA. What is Petra, where it came from, where is aiming....
Out of Retreat in 2015 many (working) groups has emerged, and one of them was Integral Entrepreneurship Lab, from which group Petra was born. The group is growing, expanding, merging ... because their member feels the need that Auroville moves from urban village toward sustainable township, offering enough support for the human resources to join.
Petra ( a working name, homage to late Petra) would not only be a gateway or filter, but also a place where economy should become a catalyst to turn things around, and develop the city of Dawn; it aspires to be a meeting pong, borderline with holistical approach with inbuilt possibilities and opportunities for residents and visitors alike.

The Auroville Charter

Auroville was born on 28 February 1968. Its founder, the Mother, created the Auroville Charter consisting of four main ideas which underpinning her vision for Auroville. When Auroville came into being, All India Radio (AIR) broadcast the Charter, live, in 16 languages. Aurovilians apply the ideas of the Auroville Charter in their daily life, in policy-development, and decisions, big and small. The Charter thus forms an omnipresent referent that silently guides the people who choose to live and work for Auroville.

The Auroville Charter

Auroville belongs to nobody in particular. Auroville belongs to humanity as a whole. But, to live in Auroville, one must be a willing
servitor of the divine consciousness.
Auroville will be the place of an unending education, of constant progress, and a youth that never ages.
Auroville wants to be the bridge between the past and the future. Taking advantage of all discoveries from without and from within, Auroville will boldly spring towards future
realisations.
Auroville will be a site of material and spiritual researches for a living embodiment of an actual human unity.


During the Auroville inauguration in 1968, youth from 124 different nations and 23 Indian states, deposited a handful of their native soil into the Urn, a marble clad structure in the form of a symbolic lotus bud, located in the centre of the Amphitheatre (see photo). The Auroville Charter - handwritten in French by the Mother - rests along with this soil, sealed in the Urn, as a powerful message and promise.

Auroville Dream

To Heal Skin Problems

Sarah arrived in Auroville as one of many Weltwaerts volunteers from Germany, and has decided to work with plants, since that is her passion, and maybe her future line of work with environmental science. Most of time here she spent at Botanical Garden continuing with the work of a garden someone started last year., and as she mentions, some one will continue after her ...

Sarah compiled booklet, which supposed to be the first one in the series, on Local Medicinal Plants in Tamil Nadu. That one is focused on healing skin problems with local plants.
So many possibilities, and freedom to chose , would be high on the list of things Sarah like about Auroville, followed by her good relationship with Makachi, a Tamil woman with an enormous knowledge on plants and their uses, who generously shared her knowledge with Sarah.....
