Synthesis of Yoga

This reading concludes Chapter 5, Renunciation, pages 331-334. In these pages Sri Aurobindo again emphasizes what we read in the teachings of the Gita, how subtle and difficult is freedom from egoism, the very thing which is demanded of us. He points out that renunciation (or self-denial) is an instrument; there is period for its use which passes.

“We must be prepared to leave behind on the path not only that which we stygmatise as evil but that which seems to us to be good, yet is not the one good ….. things which ….. seemed beneficial ….. once their work is done ….. become obstacles ….. even hostile forces when we are called to advance beyond them.”

” …..march on to the wider kingdoms of God beyond …..everything is kept ….. restored for us ….. with a wonderful change and transfiguration into ….. the All-Light of Him ….. the mystery and the miracle that ceases not through the ages.”

Djanfa Magni – African Scream

Like most modern music in French-speaking West African countries, the music of Benin and Togo was influenced by a few main musical currents: Cuban, Congolese and local traditional music, as well as Chanson Francaise. Additionally, the geographical location of Benin and Togo – sandwiched between Ghana and Nigeria – exposed Beninese and Togolese musicians to Highlife music.
The cultural and spiritual riches of traditional Beninese music had an immense impact on the sound of Benin’s modern music. Benin is the birth place of Vodun (or, as it is known in the West, Voodoo), and some of the rhythms used during traditional rituals – Sakpata, Sato, Agbadja, Tchenkoumé and many others – were fused to Soul and Latin music as early as the mid-1960s and later to Funk.
In the late 60s and early 70s rock and soul music started creeping into the region. In particular, the music of James Brown and Johnny Hallyday became immensely popular with university students. It was then that the music scene in Benin really started to take off.

AV Safety and Security

Yesterday’s Information Meeting of Auroville Safety & Security Team at SAWCHU, Bharat Nivas, Pavilion of India was not well attended from the side of community.
Current AV Safety&Security Team , consisting of Samuel, Indra, Srijita, Mattheiu, Peter, Carlos, and the guards, which took its place about year and a half ago, shared intensively with us what are they going through, changes they have implemented in their work, obstacles, scope of work, and future plans. In all they also emphasized the importance of prevention rather than intervention. In this aspect collaboration with the community is of utmost importance. They would like to have wider interaction with the members of the community from sharing of information to the appropriate attitude of each of the member of the community. Just for an example – in past year 90% of thefts occurred due to the fact that people leaved the doors unlocked!

Ecological Sanitation

Yesterday’s presentation of Lucas from EcoPro was trying to show what are the downfall of classical sanitation versus ecological sanitation.
Presentation was illustrated with power point slides with many examples of life cycle, and sanitation, either the one that is most commonly used, and the ecological, and field examples. Lucas , for the start, elaborated on the cycle of nutrient, on entrophication of water bodies and nutrient – poor wastelands, reflection current sanitation systems, on the purity – pollution gradient in a caste-based society.

CAT on RC in Auroville

Friday 6th October there was a CAT (Creative Auroville Together) gathering on Restorative Circles (RC) in Unity Pavillion, Auroville.
Together with the Cat team we explored what RC can offer us as a community, how do they work and why do we have them.
RC is a community process designed to hold space for those in conflict.
There are 3 stages designed to identify the key factors in the conflict, reach agreements on next steps, and evaluate the results.
As circles form they invite shared power, mutual understanding, self – responsibility and effective action within the community.
The process is voluntary and open to all. Anyone can call a circle, anyone can be named to be invited to a circle and anyone can contact the facilitator and request to be included.
Most of the participants find RC a powerful tool to be used as one of Auroville`s conflict resolution options.
How to call a circle? Send a mail to restorative@auroville.org.in or speak in person to L`aura, Janet, Shanti, Helene or Kati.
Two day regular workshops will be offered (see News and Notes).
Also interesting to know that RC practices development began with the work of Dominic Barker in Rio de Janeiro in the mid 90`s in the favelas and continues with a growing community both in Brazil and internationally
