Mr. Anathoo speaking on SAFE FOOD

An interactive session with Mr. Anathoo at Sustainable Livelihood Institute (SLI)
– An activist with deep commitment towards sustainability and involved in setting up several amazing ventures related to organic farming including ReStore (www.restore.org.in),OFM (www.ofmtn.in) and Tula (tula.org.in), an orgnaic cotton initiative. He has also been recently involved with the anti-GM Mustard campaign as well as the force behind organising the National Seed Savers & Diversity Festival at Anna University, Chennai.
Mr. Anathoo clearly states how commercialization of the agriculture industry is literally poisoning our food and our lives. In his talk in SLI, he presented with some serious facts and figures clearly pointing out the trend the agriculture industry in adopting by allowing practices like genetically modifies seeds which is a great fraud to our nutritional needs but also encourages the culture of heavy fertilizer and pesticide use. He stresses on the urgency on the consumers to become aware and start demanding for standardized and organic produce which is not only healthy to human but also keep the natural cycle of cultivation in check which supports the entire biosphere connected to producing and harvesting crops.

Good eating and well being

The idea of showing people how harvesting, cooking and celebrating your food can lead to a balanced community living led to the ‘6 Days of Hundred Percent Exploration of Nutritional Security’ Project at Solitude Farm last week. In this interview with Krishna, we discuss how it all began, food as much more than just a functional necessity and how important it is to honour mother earth and the soil.

If mankind only caught a glimpse of what infinite enjoyments, what perfect forces, what luminous reaches of spontaneous knowledge, what wide calms of our being lie waiting for us in the tracts which our animal evolution has not yet conquered, they would leave all and never rest till they had gained these treasures. But the way is narrow, the doors are hard to force, and fear, distrust and scepticism are there, tentacles of Nature to forbid the turning away of our feet from less ordinary pastures.

Consciousness is not only power of awareness of self and things, it is or has also adynamic and creative energy .It can determine its own reactions or abstain from reactions; it can not only answer to forces, but create or put out from itself forces. Consciousness is Chit but also Chit Shakti.

Africa House in Making

The Auroville Council and the Working Committee inform us on daily operations at Entry Service

Water Group says : ” So saving water is critical. It is NOT the time to plant anything new. It is NOT the time to refill your massive swimming pools. It is NOT the time to water the roads, as much as it helps to keep the dust down. It is NOT the time to water your lawns, or keep your ornamental gardens lush and green. It IS the time to prioritize your water usage, and have honest conversations within your communities about water usage in communal spaces. It IS the time to save water in every possible way, and to encourage respectfully others in the community to do the same.”

We know the Divine and become the Divine, because we are That already in our secret nature.

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.
