Be honest towards yourself -(no self-deception). Be sincere towards the Divine – (no bargaining in the surrender). Be straightforward with humanity -(no pretence and show).

What is Petra?

We were hosting Uma and Torkil this morning in our studio, and the talk was on PETRA. What is Petra, where it came from, where is aiming….
Out of Retreat in 2015 many (working) groups has emerged, and one of them was Integral Entrepreneurship Lab, from which group Petra was born. The group is growing, expanding, merging … because their member feels the need that Auroville moves from urban village toward sustainable township, offering enough support for the human resources to join.
Petra ( a working name, homage to late Petra) would not only be a gateway or filter, but also a place where economy should become a catalyst to turn things around, and develop the city of Dawn; it aspires to be a meeting pong, borderline with holistical approach with inbuilt possibilities and opportunities for residents and visitors alike.

The ‘After-Meeting Interview’

Should we open Auroville’s doors and allow people to find out for themselves if the ‘city of dawn’ is their community; or should we assume the responsibility to select candidates carefully?
How can we avoid the Entry Service to be closed for such a long time?
Do New Comers feel under scrutiny during the one year process?
What can we do to involve more Tamil New Comers and Aurovillians to these meetings?

Auroville Radio asks participants of the meeting to express their view.

Consciousness is a reality inherent in existence. It is there even when it is not active on the surface, but silent and immobile; it is there even when it is invisible on the surface, not reacting on outward things or sensible to them, but withdrawn and either active or inactive within; it is there even when it seems to us to be quite absent and the being to our view unconscious and inanimate.

A talk with Lisbeth and Ashwin

In the hustle of reaching to our destination we often forget to look around the path we are walking on. We just cross a lot of things without even noticing the beautiful depths they bear. And we do the same while going to Pondicherry from Auroville, we pass a small village called Muthialpet. Even the people traveling through this road daily don’t know that such a place even exist because they always try to run as fast as they could from there because of all the traffic but in this they forget to consider going inside the village and know it truely. Lisbeth and Ashwin decided to pay a visit to this village. Very impressively they captured the essence of this place in their photographs and exhibited them to let people know this place more closely and not judging it based on the outside traffic. They have showed Muthialpet in every light from dawn to dusk in their exhibition held in Pitanga.
To know more about the exhibition and the experience they had while shooting Muthialpet listen to the talk we had with the Photographers.

CAT13: Auroville is Volunteerland

This CAT’s meet (Creating Auroville Together) was on the most crucial topic to Auroville, which are the volunteers. As someone once said, without volunteers there would be no Auroville. And for this utmost important service of facilitating the volunteers, we have the SAVI service. SAVI had created this CAT’s meet and gave a heart touching presentation on the workings of SAVI to support the volunteers and also an insight into the contribution volunteers are literally making into the Auroville lifestyle, with an underscore that they are being perhaps taken for granted rather than cherished. Who were the first set of Aurovillians, the Volunteers!
SAVI team through its members gave a presentation based on facts and figures about their day-to-day working and in a unique manner invited an entire array of real-time sharing from existing volunteers, something the audience could relate to. SAVI pointed out about the stringent rules of the visa process and also some of the rules of Auroville community are not so encouraging for volunteers. They with proper projections proved the actual accounted contribution done by volunteers which is more than 3.5 crores, and a question was naturally left imposing to the participating community members, why so are volunteers preferred lesser than visiting guest in terms of housing and contributions? In simple words why are the volunteers often found in hardships and how can we create resources which give the message of Auroville being a Volunteerland, WELCOME VOLUNTAIRE’.

GM on Entry Process

A General Meeting was called by the Entry Serice Group in Collabration with ETG, for residents of Auroville. The agenda of the meeting was to revisit the new Entry Service Process to invite new comers to Auroville. A concern was raised recently when 60+ Aurovillians signed and submitted a petition to halt the new Entry Service Process, as they realise, its going too fast and were concerned about the future repercussions of encouraging a process without a thorough set of guidelines, which everyone in the meeting agreed, were not complete.
The Entry Service Group & ETG, on their part made presentations of all the facts and figures and were encouraging a dialogue which could lead to a mutual, practical solutions. The tension in the room was abnormally high, doubts were raised regarding the data provided by both the committees and several outburst were staged regarding the implementation of the process being approved by the RAS, earlier this year. The ETG has openly invited the residents of Auroville to come forward and participate in ratification of process, if so is required. The meeting ended on an abrupt note and general consensus that all the groups along with the residents need to do solid ground work, before moving forward in any direction.
