This soul of desire is a separative soul of ego and all its instincts are for a separative slef-afirmation; it pushes always openly or under more or less shining masks, for its own growth, for possession, for enjoyment, for conquest and empire.

To Heal Skin Problems

Sarah arrived in Auroville as one of many Weltwaerts volunteers from Germany, and has decided to work with plants, since that is her passion, and maybe her future line of work with environmental science. Most of time here she spent at Botanical Garden continuing with the work of a garden someone started last year., and as she mentions, some one will continue after her …

Sarah compiled booklet, which supposed to be the first one in the series, on Local Medicinal Plants in Tamil Nadu. That one is focused on healing skin problems with local plants.
So many possibilities, and freedom to chose , would be high on the list of things Sarah like about Auroville, followed by her good relationship with Makachi, a Tamil woman with an enormous knowledge on plants and their uses, who generously shared her knowledge with Sarah…..

Auroville Economy Fundamentals

A new study group has been inspired, to brainstorm and create a resolute economy structure for Auroville of the future. Spearheading this endeavor is Jaya and Divyanshi, in collaboration with other team members. We have a tendency of approaching economy in a very logic frame of mind, based on financial rules and principles and tend to have rigid parameters, here we have a refreshing new approach to economy with spirituality at its base, guided by the principles of only The Mother, and fundamentals derived from interpretation of the Matri-Mandir gardens. Yes! the Matrimandir gardens is like a matrix in its own, gifted to us by the Mother and can bring enormous insights into designing of lifestyles and ecosystems, as Jaya elaborates in this interview. They propose, for an out-of-the-box solution is required to shape an economy, which should have no parallel in the world, as it should very well be like an invention, such is the theme set for Auroville. It is an interesting and thought provoking point-of-view where you have flowers, gardens, spirit and feelings as a vocabulary to design an economy which serves the people rather than an economy designed to enslave the talent and power humans can produce. This group has started off with small steps but with great intensity into research and problem solving methods, starting right from the micro level and building up the economy story.
Anyone listening to this interview and is related to Auroville economy must consider offering time and energy to this special group, determined to achieve The Mother’s Dream, “Money is no longer the sovereign lord of people”

CAT-10 Creating greener Auroville

CAT10- was organized on Mother’s birthday to reflect on the ‘Joy of building a green universal township: Auroville’.
Luigi and team had created this presentation based on the vision of the Mother of an eco-friendly city the Earth needs.
It was a very harmonious presentation and was explained in much detail to inspire deeper insights.
An innovative presentation style, with 4 panelist from various fields and having pioneering experience in Auroville, to discuss and comment on the presentation content as it moved along from topic to topic. Due to late start, the presentation was cut short but the passion and enthusiasm with which Luigi and panelists presented was abundant. There were many aspects to take away from this presentation, like the suggestion to ‘remove the internal fences between communities to concretely foster human unity ‘ or to increase the use of creepers in a maximum effect manner or use applied research in making internal spaces, external facades and terraces more energy efficient in order to develop greener landscapes including vegetables cultivation.
The entire evening and the audience response was very pleasant, ideal to discuss Mother’s vision in action.
Thank you Luigi, the panelists, the participants and the ‘CAT’s’ to co-create this safe space of reflection on what holds Auroville to the past and what opens to the future.

Emergence at Solitude

“Home” band Emergence has brought last night at Solitde Farm joy to friends, family and fans. Emergence, an acoustic indo-pop band with electric stage presence is consisting of Krishna Mckenzie on guitar and lead vocals, Mishko M’ba on bass, Karthik Iyer on violin and vocals and Soundar Rajan on drums and percussion.
Mostly known songs from their repertoire, written by band members, and of course life in Auroville brought smiles and memories on the faces of patrons. Besides all, the band’s music does spread the spirit and message of Japanese Zen master and farmer Masanobu Fukuoka, natural farming, as well the importance of local, seasonal food for our health; and not to mention the importance for every community to celebrate together.
