The Mother’s Birthday

As every year, Aurovilians gathered at the Amphitheatre besides the Matrimandir at dawn for a collective meditation, in honor and memory of The Mother, the founder of Auroville.

This year, a reading was given from Mother’s meditation; an event which took place between 2-3 in the afternoon, and in which she saw an undisturbed vision of the supramental consciousness, and how people travelled to and from that land on a great city-sized ship.
The dawn chorus accompanied the subsequent concentration, and the daylight seemed to appear as if from nowhere.

Sadhana Forest Kabir Music 1

Last Saturday was quite a memorable day for the Sadhana Forest community and all its guests. Having welcomed everyone to celebrate their ten years of existence, they served up numerous activities during the day and late into the night. The place was crowded, especially waiting for the Kabir Music performance. AurovilleRadio was there, of course, recording this great event for you. The concert started with Prahladji Singh Tipaniya, had people celebrate, in a great spirit of freedom and unity, and only ended at 3am on the Sunday morning,

We thank everyone that made this event possible. For those not familiar with the Kabir project, Prahlad Singh Tipaniya is an Indian folk singer who performs Kabir bhajans in the Malwi folk style of Madhya Pradesh. He was born in a Dalit family on September 7th, 1954, in Luniakhedi, Tarana, Malwa, Madhya Pradesh. Prahlad Singh Tipaniya has toured the U.K., the U.S., and India, and his music has been played on all of the Indian radio stations. Having received several awards, including the Padma Shri in 2011, Tipaniya also performed at the annual Sufi music festival, Ruhaniyat. At Sadhana Forest, he performed together with a group of skilled and passionate khartal, dholak, harmonium, timki and violin players.

Collected Poems – Sri Aurobindo

I have rendered a few poems from the book Collected Poems of Sri Aurobindo. I am having a great time discovering the multi-faceted grandeur of Sri Aurobindo’s poetic genius. I am interested in sharing with the listeners my voice-adventure of trying to feel and render the poetry of Sri Aurobindo. The poem Bride of the Fire was written on November 11, 1935. The listeners can look forward to more such endeavours in the time to come. I am thankful to AurovilleRadio for letting me experiment.

Collected Poems is a great collection of poems written by Sri Aurobindo from 1890 to 1950. — intyoga.online.fr/poems.htm

New Selection Process

Following are minutes of 2nd General Meeting on a proposed New Selection Process for the Working Committee and the Auroville Council with Participatory Working Group Proposal. Due to rain meeting was not well attended but still was exposed, that maybe a new process isn’t a right answer to solve dissatisfaction of the community. As it was mentioned, the best selection process would not help until we are ready to tackle the real, core issues of problems that are burdening community, and cause as well the passivity or non participation of members.

What is Participatory Working Group proposal?The Participatory Working Group proposal aims to widen community participation in our working groups, and introduce pertinent changes to the operational/team structure to foster dynamism and participation.

1. New Team Structure: Distributing the work load wisely – the 4 roles
If an Aurovilian wants to participate in a working group, s/he can choose between four roles or types of membership: Listener, Coordinator, Facilitator and Resource Person. Each working group will have its unique set of capabilities for the three types of active roles.

2. New Operational Structure aims to be: supportive, inclusive, dynamic and adaptable.
The new Working Group sets the goals and defines the roles. Communication between the working groups and the community is given an important role plus all members are connected via an online forum where internal communication is flowing and meetings are set up when required.

3. New Selection Process
The big change compared to previous working group selections is that there is no Selection Committee, but a 3-day selection process mediated by the RAS and the Study group. The candidates interested to join the WC and the AV Council work out the membership among themselves.
After a successful process, the newly formed working groups present themselves to the community through the RAS for final approval of their membership.
Candidates propose themselves to become members of a working group.
Encouraging other capable people to self-propose themselves will enhance participation.

The Grace is equally for all. But each one receives it according to his sincerity. It does not depend on outward circumstances but on a sincere aspiration and openness. Words of The Mother, Vol. 14 **************************************************************************************** On 17th November 1973, the Mother left her body. She was ninety-five. Many among her children were deeply shaken for the time being. But they realise now that she is always present amidst them.**************Both at home and abroad, the devotees see the Mother in their dreams. They feel her presence, listen to her message and get inspiration and instruction in their work. They firmly believe that the Mother will return in a new form. Meanwhile her mission is getting quietly fulfilled more and more. When Sri Aurobindo left his body the Mother said, "Nothing has changed. All that Sri Aurobindo has said is true, time will prove it." On the Mother’s withdrawal, her children are carrying on her work repeating the same dictum "Nothing has changed." *************************************************************************************** On 17 November 1973, the Mother laid down her residual human body while she continued to exist forever in a body consisting of a supramental substance. The supramental substance as worked out by the Mother is a material substance – otherwise the earthly revolution would have no meaning – though it is composed of a substance more refined than the Matter known to us. Generally speaking, the Gross Matter of our Mother the Earth is still in the process of transformation. This process is now in an advanced stage thanks to the avataric Yoga of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. When gross Matter will have become sufficiently subtle and receptive, i.e. transformed, the mature souls, ready and waiting in their soul-world, will descend and incarnate in it. The formation of their bodies will be moulded by the existence of the Mother’s supramental body, the prototype of the new species. -Georges Van Vrekhem: The Mother – The Story of Her Life

Mother … there is another blue, near to the purple, which is the light of a power of the vital. Sri Aurobindo. Lord , give me perfect sincerity, that sincerity which will lead me straight to Thee. The Mother
