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.

Chanting to Goddess Sarasvati

Nishtha has translated all main and sub-hymns to Sarasvati in the Rig-Veda. In this first lecture Nishtha brought back the rhythm and tone that was used originally in Sarasvati. So instead of having the dry mechanical tone and rhythm we now have the chants by the Rishis in beautiful poetic sounds and rhythms. Participants also had the chance to join in the chants to the Goddess Sarasvati (the flow of Divine Inspiration) as was heard originally in the vision and spiritual experience of the Rishis of the Rig-Veda.

There will be three succeeding sessions every Wednesday in Verite Hall 3-5 pm with a thorough introduction to Sarasvati taken from Sri Aurobindos book The Secret of the Veda. Nishtha has done 20 years of personal Veda studies and completed a course in higher Sanskrit studies in Auroville with Vladimir Iatsenko. Nishtha has also worked for about 5 years as Veda Researcher and gave programs of Vedic study at the University of Human Unity, Auroville and the Indian Psychology Institute, Puducherry. In 2012 he also gave Veda programs all across Germany.

Future School discusses clothing

Once again The MAMA goes out to interview four teenagers and a teacher that state their thoughts on Future Schools approach on clothing.
Each individual gave their opinion about this new concept.
They mention that it is more of an approach than a code which some of the students agreed to, and others thought it was their decision to dress the way they felt like.
