Diario di un viaggio interiore

24 giorni in India: il libro racconta il viaggio di Valentina Garozzo che lo scorso anno, dal Gange fino ad Auroville, ha fatto viaggiare la propria anima: qua da noi si e’ fermata due settimane, scoprendo una nuova energia che le ha fatto cambiare driezione nella vita. Desiderosa di condividere il proprio percorso, ha deciso di pubblicare il proprio diario di viaggio, uscito nell’agosto 2016 e disponibile ad essere acquistato online. Per ogni copia venduta, Valentina ha deciso di donare 1 Euro alla campagna “Green Acres for Auroville”, “perche’ Auroville e’ esempio di sviluppo consapevole per tutta l’umanita'”.
In visita in questi giorni ad Auroville, si e’ raccontata ai nostri microfoni.

Ashesh Joshi on his new book

On the occasion of International Yoga Day, I talk with Ashesh Joshi who released his new book ‘Introduction to Integral Yoga’ in Savitri Bhavan. In this interview, Joshi discusses why he felt compelled to pen this book, his work in Auroville and the world running workshops and finally, the power of Integral Yoga.

A Review of 'In An Antique Land'

In this segment, I review ‘In An Antique Land’ written by Amitav Ghosh in 1992. The book follows two main narratives, the first is the anthropological account of Ghosh’s time in Egyptian villages in the present and the other is the life of a trader named Abraham Ben Yiju in the past. As an Indian anthropology student, this book was immediately fascinating to me because it deals with the dilemma of studying a subject with a dark colonial past as a former colonial subject. Furthermore, the book is ambitious in it’s desire to recreate the past not defined by colonial conquering but one of peaceful cultural and material exchange between two countries (Egypt and India).

Savitri – Book VII, Canto VII

Savitri, Book VII, The Book of Yoga
Canto VII, The Discovery of the Cosmic Spirit and the Cosmic Consciousness

This is the last Canto in The Book of Yoga, where Savitri is going to attain Cosmic Consciousness. This is the last thing that Savitri must do to prepare herself for her husband’s death and the great work she was born to do. Now she must conquer Almighty Death and bring her husband’s soul back to live on earth again. We have now come to the point where the whole story of Savitri starts. Canto l, at the very beginning of Book I is called The Symbol Dawn. It is the dawn of the day when Savitri wakes and remembers that it is the day that Satyavan must die.

But It Is Done

B explains the significance of the recent publication But It Is Done’ in today’s interview. ‘But It Is Done’ is a small but mighty book, composed by Dr. Kireet Joshi, a small volume revealing the reason for the Mother’s Agenda as well as the reason for creating Auroville. This volume contains direct quotes of the Mother from the Agenda. It also speaks of the fact that although the Mother’s work is done, our collaboration is definitely and obviously very much needed.

an excerpt from Sri Aurobindo: Letters on YogaAll who enter the spiritual path have to face the difficulties and ordeals of the path,
those which rise from their own nature and those which come in from outside.
The difficulties in the nature always rise again and again until you overcome them;
they must be faced with both strength and patience. But the vital part is prone
to depression when ordeals and difficulties arise.
This is not peculiar to you, but comes to all… must train yourself to overcome
this reaction of depression, calling in the Mothers Force to aid you….

…Know then your self; know your true self to be God and one with the self of all others; know your soul to be a portion of God. Live in what you know; live in the self, live in your supreme spiritual nature, be united with God and Godlike. Offer, first, all your actions as a sacrifice to the Highest and the One in you and to the Highest and the One in the world; deliver last all you are and do into his hands for the supreme and universal spirit to do through you his own will and works in the world. Sri Aurobindo
( from The Esasays on The Gita )

“Chercher plus loin, toujours plus loin”, voici la philosophie d’Aurevan, 20 ans, et de Smiti, 19 ans, toutes deux étudiantes à «Last school» depuis 7 ans. Pour elles, il ne s’agit pas d’aller à l’école afin d’obtenir des diplômes, mais de vivre l’école et même la cité, comme des lieux d’apprentissage, et de progrès permanents. A “Last school”, la joie d’apprendre et la soif de perfection sont stimulées et nourries grâce a cette éducation particulière appelée: “Libre Progrès”. Ainsi, en 2009, Smiti et Aurevan ont-elles choisi de créer, avec 2 autres étudiants, leur propre exposition d’art à la Pyramide (école d’art d’ AV).
Cette expérience intense se révélera être un véritable passage et donnera également naissance à un livre intitulé justement «Passage».
En Juillet 2010, le ministre des ressources humaines de l’Inde lui-même, viendra à Auroville soutenir et assister le lancement du livre, illustration et espoir d’une nouvelle éducation pour un futur meilleur.
