Adishakti`s Hindu Nov 2017 Fest Tour by Lail Arad and JF Robitaille

A guitar, two voices, a handful of songs, a warmly lit theater, good acoustics, and a welcoming audience are all it takes for an intimate successful evening show. As I enter the candle lit area, I feel as though I am coming home to a warm and wordly nest settled in a flourishing garden. Adishakti is a beautiful  place.

Lail Arad (London) and JF Robitaille (Montreal) brought their “We Got It Coming” Tour presented by the Hindu Nov 2017 Fest to Adishakti tonight. These artists and so much more theater is hidden between Pondicherry and Auroville. They set in with a Simon & Garfunkel song, “Hello Darkness, My Old Friend”, which sounds quite funny and right to the point at 7 pm. Short songs followed – as individuals and as a duo – such as “We Got It Coming”, some of the old masterpieces from Joni Mitchel, Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice It’s All Right”, Smokey Robinson’s “You Got A Hold On Me”, and Leonard Cohen’s “Bird On A Wire” – all performed with artistry, beauty and wit.

Thank you so much.
I can’t wait to see the weekly Adishakti Happenings next February 2018.
So long, Adishakti!

Synthesis of Yoga

This reading completes Chapter 2 The Status of Knowledge, Part II The Yoga of Integral Knowledge, pages 303 – 307. Sri Aurobindo continues to teach us that God is in us, in everything, and that our whole being ought to demand God. The whole life and body can be satisfied of God.

Knowledge and experience, which we must attain, are primary means of arriving and possessing identity ; it is ourself that we see and experience but are incomplete unless they culminate in identity, living in all our being the supreme Vedntic knowledge: He am I. A supernal unity with the Ineffable. Actually that is the culmination of all divine knowing; that is also the source of all divine delight and divine living.

The status of knowledge then is the aim of this path and when pursued to its end is only a first approach to the ascent which we have to use until the divine doors swing open into the infinite Light.

The Words of The Mother, Vol. 14 A discovery in Morocco points to the
oldest Homosapiens fossils found so far. An international team of researchers uncovered 300,000 year-old fossil bones of Homo sapiens, a find tha is approximately 100,000 older than any other previously discovered Homosapiens fossils.The discovery, reported in two papers published June 8, 2017 in the journal Nature (here and here), was made at Jebel Irhoud, Morocco.
The team noted that the fossils reveal a complex evolutionary history of mankind that likely involved the entire African continent. Professor Jean-Jacques Hublin is a a palaeoanthropologist at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany. Hublin said in a statement:We used to think that there was a cradle of mankind 200,000 years ago in east Africa, but our new data reveal that Homo sapiens spread across the entire African continent around 300,000 years ago.

Consciousness is not only power of awareness of self and things, it is or has also adynamic and creative energy .It can determine its own reactions or abstain from reactions; it can not only answer to forces, but create or put out from itself forces. Consciousness is Chit but also Chit Shakti.

Radio as vehicle of information

Brief interview with attendees of the General Meeting held at Unity Pavilion on Monday the 24th of April. The topic was to discuss a proposal to restructure the Town Development Council.
Some of the comments made were that “”we need more collaboration in order to develop Auroville together”; “we need more involvement by residents in these meetings”;” and “we could submit our questions prior to the meeting””.
Generally everybody agrees that “overall, these meetings and the way they are prepared show a good attempt in moving towards the development of Auroville”.
