Georges van Vrekhem (Photographer: Andrea)The latest talk of Georges van Vrekhem on Thursday December 9 was about Sri Aurobindo's take on the Big Bang theory. Sri Aurobindo’s works are seldom approached for their scientific contents, yet he has followed the evolution of scientific thought up close. He wrote at the time of Einstein and the quantum mechanic revolution. In Savitri, his ‘testament’, Sri Aurobindo takes a clear stand for the Big Bang theory, even before the general consensus it has today.

Georges van Vrekhem in 2006 (Photographer: Giorgio)On Saturday, December 4, Georges van Vrekhem’s talk was on “Sri Aurobindo’s Descent into Death”. Georges recounted that soon after the Second World War, the world, in Sri Aurobindo’s words, was “worse than worst”. In fact, Sri Aurobindo’s and the Mother’s work was in jeopardy -- and it was not his intention “to give his sanction to another fiasco”. This is one of the most dramatic episodes in spiritual history and the history of humankind, documented hour-by-hour and commented upon by the Mother herself. Georges explained Sri Aurobindo’s voluntary descent into death, only six years later, the manifestation of the Supermind with its enormous future consequences.

 (Photographer: Andrea)Georges Van Vrekhem, an old-time Aurovillian and a Belgian journalist, poet and playwright, gave the first talk in a series of four on November 15, Saturday, at the Savitri Bhavan. Introduced as an authority on Sri Aurobindo and The Mother, Georges’s topic was “2012 and 1956”. He said he was intrigued by all the hype around 2012, when the fourth cycle of the Mayan calendar comes to an end. Georges analyzed if the world would come to an end in 2012 or if on December 21, 2012, all at once, a major change would take place when everyone would be spiritually transformed. He also made a connection with February 29, 1956, when the manifestation of the “super mind” took place.

Georges van Vrekhem (Photographer: Giorgio)In the Gita, Sri Krishna shows himself to Arjun "brighter than a thousand suns", but then also as Time the Devourer. The Integral Yoga is a constant battle the hostile forces, as we see in the examples of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother themselves. And "none will reach heaven who has not gone through hell", as we read in "Savitri". Listen in for the fourth of Georges van Vrekhem's talks.

Preparing for the Miraculous

Wednesday, 10 November 2010
Georges van Vrekhem (Photographer: Giorgio)The great Change is taking place now. If a new species has to come about, it has to happen through a series of miracles. The first ones must be the psychic and spiritual realizations - followed by ... the unexpected. It might be more practical to see our task of transitory beings as a preparation for the unexpected than as an expectation of an overmental or supramental realization. But, despite our ignorance, our dedicated effort is essential (as is Auroville) in the present turnabout. Our yoga is not for ourselves, but for humanity. Listen in for the third of Georges van Vrekhem's talks.

Tuesday, 28 September 2010
Georges Van Vrekhem (Photographer: Courtesy auroville.org)Sunday morning, September 26 Georges Van Vrekhem, a well-known author and exponent on Integral Yoga, began a series of four talks in Town Hall. Sri Aurobindo and the Mother have talked about the "archetype" as the idea of terrestrial evolution (which is also the origin of the four varnas). The Mother has seen it and talked about it to Sri Aurobindo, who confirmed her vision. If this is true, it is the explanation of the human form, therefore of the forms gradually created by the evolution and leading up to the human, and the fundamental shape of the supramental being. Mystics in the past have seen the same, and some of them, in the Gnostic tradition, have called the archetype Adam Kadmon. Listen in for the full first talk. Read more
