What is the Low-Tech Lab? Is it another business brand using trends such as sustainable and environment friendly to sell a product, or is this an innovative movement that wants to change the approach to global development?
Considering key words such as do it yourself, local manufacturing, low environmental impact, economic, repairable, and for all, how sustainable and environment friendly are some innovative inventions such as solar panels?

An introduction of Kabir’s philosophical poetry by Dr. Sehdev Kumar. Through the tale of the illiterate poet Kabir, we revisit the history and politics of India from the 15th century to the India of today.

As Ribhu says “a little campaign” of LFA or Litter Free Auroville 2017 is going on for next almost three weeks with the main purpose to engage the whole community on the topic of our trash. They are trying to center their efforts in the ways how to treat our garbage with the mission to come to the zero waste…
Wastless(educational part), Upcylcing Studio(take care of difficult waste stream) and Eco Service(picking our daily waste) are main players in those efforts, and they are trying to reach integral service, an approach to treat waste.

Sri Aurobindo The Synthesis of Yoga
Frequency of the week | ECHO
Our soul is constantly working for us. She shows us the way and wants to inspire us. Often we dont listen, because the signals from the soul sometimes seem illogical. They dont fit within the boundaries of our thinking. This is what you experience when you feel something is going to happen, but you are not sure exactly what.
At a subconscious level you pick something up, something that you cannot explain within your head. That something feels like an echo. Its the reflection of what your soul transmits to give you information about where you are right now. Echoes can repeat frequently or not; it all depends on where you want to go. That is why its important to give your soul the right information. Tune into exactly what you want, what makes you happy and which people or situations will help you further. Just like a radio station, your soul will transmit the exact signal to you at the right moment just before you reach your next station.
The frequency of Echo gives you insight into which energy you transmit and when it will echo back to you.

Do not aim at success. Our aim is perfection. Remember you are on the threshold of a new world, participating in its birth and instrumental in its creation. There is nothing more important than the transformation. There is no interest more worthwhile.
The Words of The Mother, Vol. 12
Here is the third reading (of 4) of Part One The Yoga of Divine Works, Chapter 4 The Sacrifice, the Triune Path and the Lord of the Sacrifice.
In this portion, Sri Aurobindo explains further the often confusing concept of duality; the biune duality of Brahman-Maya, of Purusha-Prakriti, stands revealed. This Duality although in aspect separate, is inseparable. Wherever there is Prakriti, there is Purusha. Wherever there is Purusha, there is Prakriti. In fact, the dynamic duality of Ishwari Shakti, divine consciousness and World-Mother, become a mediatrix between the eternal One and manifested Many.

I am concerned with the earth, not with worlds beyond for their own sake; it is a terrestrial realisation that I seek and not a flight to distant summits. All other yoga regard this life as an illusion or a passing phase; the supramental yoga alone regards it as a thing created by the Divine for a progressive manifestation and takes the fulfillment of the life and the body for its object.
