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.

Presentation Unnicycles for MSF

"Unnicycles" a cycle tour across India to support Doctors Without Borders (Medecins Sans Frontieres), with its (2010-2013) International President Dr. Unni Karunakara, was in Auroville last Wednesday. Starting from the Solar Kitchen and ending at Aurovelo, he took Aurovilian children for a ride. At Aurovelo, over delicious chocolate ice cream,’ Dr. Unni told the kids the story of his great humanitarian project. They were also asking him questions about his job as a humanitarian doctor around the world.

It gave a great awareness to the children who could understand how lucky they are to be able to see a doctor when needed. They understood that MSF is an association which helps people who cannot otherwise afford to be cured, those who suffer from wars, who do not have enough food or who do not have access to healthy water, as is actually the cause of many diseases. We wish that Doctor Unni Karunakara comes back to spread his message in Aurovilian schools, to Aurovillian doctors, Pondicherry University, high schools and all of us, to remind us how important this action is and maybe to inspire some to join the MSF team…?

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. —
