The meeting of man and God must always mean a penetration and entry of the Divine into the human and a self immergence of man in the Divinity.
But that immergence is not in the nature of an annihilation. Extinction is not the fulfilment of all this search and passion, suffering and rapture. The game would never have been begun if that were to be its ending.

Amazing voices of Vera, Shakti and Swaha, with Saraswati on flute, and Rolf on guitar lulled us fully into the region. By the last song the audience joined them excitedly.

Art for Land – Flow of Donations

In the care for land Unity Pavilion joined the action Acres for Auroville (A4A) with unique way – Art for Land, by which they connect all good wishers also with artist, thus creating a flow of donation. Here the generosity is a gesture with noble action, as Devasmita mentions in between.
Team of Acres for Auroville(A4A), and Green Acres with Mandakini, Aryadeep and Sigrid in care to secure the master plan, as envisioned by The Mother, try to raise  funds to buy missing plots.
This year Art for Land will be inaugurated on 1st of January 2018 at 4pm at Unity Pavilion, with accompanied music. Exhibition   will be on display until 15th  of February . This year there wont be an auction but just a display of already collected over 300 art works from painting, photography, sculptures and pottery.
With this action the Unity Pavilion joins the events celebrating not only the 50th anniversary of Auroville, but also plea for  Gratitude which we all feel for the land,  that gives space to uniqueness of Auroville. As Jaya says,  they still hope that to celebrate the 50th, each account in Auroville, either be personal or other,  would join the celebrations by monthly recurring small or big amount toward purchasing missing plots of the land for the Master Plan.

Auroville Papers

Much more than paper, Auroville Papers is a unit that works as a team where there is no hierarchy, but only friendship and sharing of creativity and responsibility. They work in true Auroville spirit.
This is one of the units that started in the early times when conditions were difficult, but nevertheless in time they have expanded and improved their work.
With the recent change of economy, Auroville Papers had to adapt, and this pushed the team to be more innovative. Now not only do they produce aesthetic stationery, but they have also extended their repertoire to include all sorts of handicrafts, such as: earrings, door screens, a large variety of decorative items, and also some art work. One item that particularly caught my eye was a beautiful sculpture of a white unicorn (see our video on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqW332od3KA). I felt like I had just walked into an art gallery rather than a paper factory.
Because of the economic change Luisa remarked that we cannot be passive. We always need to be challenged in life if we want to keep ourselves well and active, and stay awaken. It is a work of challenges and creativity says Jean Jaques.
These words reminded me that “all life is Yoga”.

At the interview we have Jean Jaques, Herve’,and Luisa

Tabla recital by Sanjay Mukherjee

Saturday evening we witnessed a powerful tabla recital, supported by the sitar, by Pt. Sanjay Mukherjee showcasing various styles of tabla playing.
He is one of the most well versed musicologist and great teacher on the subject belonging to the Farukhabad Gharana of Hindustani Classical Music.
He went through different complex tabla rhythms which only connoisseurs can name. Even poetry could be recited by playing the tabla… as he commented, the fingers need to sprout vigour and emotions with supreme artistry.
Tabla and sitar blended together very well. They concluded with a jugalbandi on tabla and sitar much to the taste of the public.
The evening was organised by ARPANAA.
Thank you so much Geeta, Creativity & Mona, Yantra for this wonderful evening.
