Auroville Dream

A chapter on Auroville can be found on this magical book series of Vladimir Megre encapsulating the life and energy of Anastasia, a Siberian Vedic Avatar. Many are called to Auroville after having read this Megre’s encounter with Anastasia.

Sustainable Living in Auroville

Yesterday, at the Sustainable Living Institute in Kottakarai was a workshop conducted as a part of a Reasearch program between Heriot Watt Univeristy, Findhorn Foundation College, Scene Connect, CSR, Buddha Garden and Auroville Consultancy. The workshop was meant to learn from the local farmers about the challenges and opportunities in the Tamil Nadu farming community.

This interview is with Micheal and Andrew who are visiting academics from Findhorn Foundation College and Herriot-Watt university. They are developing sustainable agriculture and energy conserving practices . They talk about the technology being tested here could potentially be implemented at a mass scale, and help drastically reduce the unbridled consumption of natural resources. The irrigation systems being developed could result in a 60% reduction in water consumption of irrigation, reduction in compost input, increase in yield and increase in nutrient content of the harvest.

Our Local Food at Solitude

Solitude Farm invites us on 12th of June to experience a week of eating food only grown in Auroville. Participants will be invited to learn how to use the local ingredients, will also be able to get involved with harvest and we will touch on how to make our own gardens and explore how to bring our community together to create change.

Auroville Institute of Applied Technology signed MOU with 6 companies in Tamil Nadu 
and Pondicherry to be partner, and consolidated industry stipend for 96 students under the Dual System of Training. That way Auroville youth have a unique opportunity to learn technology in various disciplines in the Dual System of Training at Auroville Institute of Applied Technology.

WC informs us that for the full month of June 2017, the Working Committee Secretariat will be open only in the mornings from 9:30am to 12:30pm

When you awake, you cross a line of no return, and you never see the world in the same way. You are still dreaming—because you cannot avoid dreaming, because dreaming is the function of the mind–but the difference is that you know it’s a dream.

Pem Flow by KinGi

“Connectivity, bio circuitry, aren’t we all vibrating along,
getting in and out of touch,
looping through some ups and downs,
feeling locked in or out,
free to contact, interact,
with whichever next big challenge flows by…”
(words by KinGi)

27th April (at Tibetan Pavillion) was an evening of vocally performed poetry describing some climatic sensations of an inner environment. A single man show cannot be better than this. KinJi amazed everyone with his narration and act and no doubt the words he used. Everything was so beautifully written and with each piece he expressed the struggles going on inside every person’s mind. It was an so great to listen him and to witness his acting, the expressions, changing voice notes, everything was so awestruking and touching.

Happy May Day

International Workers’ Day, also known as Labour Day is a celebration of labourers and the working classes . The date was chosen for International Workers’ Day by the Second International, a pan-national organization of socialist and communist political parties, to commemorate the Haymarket affair, which occurred in Chicago on 4 May 1886.
The first May Day celebration in India was organised in Madras (now Chennai) by the Labour Kisan Party of Hindustan on 1 May 1923.
The International Workingmen’s Association took up the demand for an eight-hour day at its convention in Geneva in August 1866, declaring “The legal limitation of the working day is a preliminary condition without which all further attempts at improvements and emancipation of the working class must prove abortive”

“The existence of poverty is the proof of an unjust & ill-organised society, and
our public charities are but the first tardy awakening in the conscience of a robber.”

The Low-Tech Lab meets Auroville

The Low-Tech Lab, an initiative of young ingenious inventors working together to meet basic needs of humanity in a creative sustainable and environmental friendly approach.
One of the main focuses of Low-Tech Lab is working on a global collaborative research program and open-source documentation.
Their next step is to locate a suitable common ground for these inventors and engineers to gather and work together. Could this common space be offered by Auroville?

What is the Low-Tech Lab?

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?
While working on technical solutions, how much do we ease our impact on the environment? Has Low-Tech Lab considered focusing on educating people to be more in tunes with nature?
A brief interview with Clement and Camille from Low-Tech Lab, and Mitia from Joy of Impermanence (Auroville).

GM for SolarPower Plant by Varuna

“The solar light is the symbol of the supra-mental light ” – The Mother said

Varuna is shining bright like the sun, so to speak. A Genaral Meeting was organized by Varuna and TDC to discuss the revised site application for the Solar Plant, it has proposed for Auroville. The meeting was packed with people from Auroville, obviously demonstrating the magnitude of this project. The Solar Power Plant, which proposes to take care of the electrical needs of the entire community for 50,000 future inhabitants of Auroville, had come across a kind of road block regarding the location of the site it had been allocated earlier. The matter was pending and was needed to be addressed by the residents along with the groups involved. In the spirit of Auroville, where mutual respect is above personal ambition, the Varuna team, made ingenious amendments and by the end of their presentation, the general feeling was that they have found out a way to keep the balance in opinions and integrity of their project intact. Much kudos to Varuna for envisioning such a remarkable project along with the state of the art desalination plant and the uphill power storage project all of which are discussed in detail in the presentation. Very soon Varuna can expect list of recommendation for site application from TDC after which it will follow its general procedure and will be posted in the News&Notes for mandatory two weeks notice and if all goes well, finally commence work on this new land for the project. All we can say is, let the force be with you.
