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

Adishakti is a beautiful place.
As I enter the candle lit area, I feel like coming home, a warm and wordly nest settled in a flourishing garden.
Lail Arad from London and JF Robitaille from Montreal are bringing their `We got it coming` Tour presented by the Hindu Nov 2017 Fest, tonight in Adishakti, an artist and so much more theater hidden somewhere between Pondicherry and Auroville.
A guitar, two voices, a handful of songs, a warmly lit theater, good acoustics and a welcoming audience, is all it needs for an intimate successful evening show.
They set in with a Simon & Garfunkel song, Hello darkness my old friend, which sounds quiet funny and right to the point at 7 pm.
Short songs followed, some written by themselves, some together like We got it coming, some of the old masters as there`s Joni Mitchel, Bob Dylan don`t think twice it`s all right, Smokey Robinson you got a hold on me and Leonard Cohen 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!

GM – Pump house and Youth Hive

On the 13th November 2017 a general meeting was held at the Unity Pavillion to try to resolve the issue between The Pump House community, The Youth Hive Project and Poppo.
The feeling from the meeting was the need in AV for the individual to get out of the way for the greater good, this is extremely important on an inner level too, so the Impersonal Consciousness can manifest into the physical realm, being intensely radiated through all sincere participants here in this divine experiment called Auroville.

Monsoon Rains

In all is the one Self, the one Divine is all; all are in the Divine, all are the Divine and there is nothing else in the universe, — this thought or this faith is the whole background until it becomes the whole substance of the consciousness of the worker.

Sanghamitra Das in Auroville

Sanghamitra Das rendered us a fascinating presentation on the highly traditional Baul singing and dancing tradition in Kala Kendra.
Bauls are a religious and cultural group of India, best known for their songs and poems to the god who dwells within. The term “Baul” is usually understood to mean “madman” or religious ecstatic, and Bauls often describe themselves as crazy for God.

The Baul tradition dates back to the early 8th C AD and has grown weaving together threads from Sahajiya Buddhism, Turkish Sufism and Bengali Hinduism. This powerful musical form has been recognised as a “Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity” by UNESCO.

She supported herself on Ektara and Guggi drum and Suresh on cajon and Dhani on guitar took care of some added percussion and strings.

To be sincere, all the parts of the being must be united in their aspiration for the Divine – not that one part wants and others refuse or revolt. To be sincere in the aspiration – to want the Divine for the Divine’s sake, not for fame or name or prestige or power or any satisfaction of vanity.
The Words of The Mother, Vol.14

Princesse Polignac

My Life in Revolution with the Princess Constance de Polignac.
The life of the Princess Constance de Polignac is the exceptional journey of a Woman’s Life, crossed since early childhood by extraordinary trials and experiences, which led her from the sophisticated spheres of a princely aristocracy linked to the history of France … to deserts and Virgin forests of the First Peoples who initiated it, and immediately recognized as master and healer.
This unique experience, integrated in consciousness in each of the cells of her woman’s body, places at the heart of her life path the status of the Feminine and her recognition by the Masculine, “a crucial stake in the construction of a completely new world”.
Presented by the French Pavilion.
