Plans For Creating Auroville

Mother’s Reasons and Plans For Creating Auroville

Because this is the year of Auroville’s fiftieth birthday, the children of Transition School have a one-year project on Auroville. The teacher of a class of fourteen-year-old students asked Loretta to speak to them about Mother and Sri Aurobindo’s plans for creating Auroville. This talk is broadcast today, the first day of the year, to honor Auroville’s fiftieth Birthday. Mother and Sri Aurobindo started to speak about creating a new city back in the 1920’s. Over the years a total of four reasons and four plans came to Mother, which show the great universal work that Auroville is created to do. This talk gives the experiences that showed Mother these reasons and relates the things Mother said about why Auroville is so important for the world and the whole creation. It also has the story of an ancient Auroville which Mother was instrumental in making and an old Tamil legend which predicted the coming of Aurovilians and some of their work.

GM – Pump house and Youth Hive

On the 13th November 2017 a general meeting was held at the Unity Pavillion to try to resolve the issue between The Pump House community, The Youth Hive Project and Poppo.
The feeling from the meeting was the need in AV for the individual to get out of the way for the greater good, this is extremely important on an inner level too, so the Impersonal Consciousness can manifest into the physical realm, being intensely radiated through all sincere participants here in this divine experiment called Auroville.

50th – Who, What, Where, When

By 50th Auroville Anniversary Core Team (Fabienne, Chali, David, Fred, along with Milan, Pala, Claudine) the community was invited to a workshop about preparations for Auroville’s 50th anniversary…
The workshop (interactive session) was aiming to inform the community on where we are today and to explore the next steps … or what we can do together.
Team leaded us through where we are at this moment with the preparations according to various possibilities – depending to either grant from Governemnt of India will be given or not.
50 years of existence of intentional community is a remarkable mark. Some members would prefer to celebrate it quietly, yet is pretty obvious that it will have quite an impact on life of the community, and surely cannot be ignored.
In second part of the event all were invited to explored possibilities how , and where one could actively participate.
Two years ago WC offered a theme for anniversary – Centering within , and during intensive participatory planning exercises theme evolved in vision:

Green Acres

Sigrid is dedicated to raising funds to purchase land for green practices. The fund raising project is called Green Acres.
She briefly explains how the land prices within Auroville have increased over the past 10 years and developments within the area are on the increase. Already, various pieces of land within the Green Belt have been bought by outside parties. Further encroachment is very likely to happen where land has not yet been acquired by Auroville.
To help the fund-raising project we need to create public awareness of the importance and urgency of securing the land for Auroville; and we need to provide information of the good work done so far in the green belt area. The appeal is to all people of the world to help acquire land for this evolutionary project.

Sustainable Living in Auroville

Yesterday, at the Sustainable Living Institute in Kottakarai was a workshop conducted as a part of a Reasearch program between Heriot Watt Univeristy, Findhorn Foundation College, Scene Connect, CSR, Buddha Garden and Auroville Consultancy. The workshop was meant to learn from the local farmers about the challenges and opportunities in the Tamil Nadu farming community.

This interview is with Micheal and Andrew who are visiting academics from Findhorn Foundation College and Herriot-Watt university. They are developing sustainable agriculture and energy conserving practices . They talk about the technology being tested here could potentially be implemented at a mass scale, and help drastically reduce the unbridled consumption of natural resources. The irrigation systems being developed could result in a 60% reduction in water consumption of irrigation, reduction in compost input, increase in yield and increase in nutrient content of the harvest.

Poppo on Archeology

Poppo Pingel is a celebrated architect, who came to Auroville in 1968 for the inauguration as the German delegate. In this interview, Pingel talks about his passion for archeology that stayed with him throughout his life, but found an outlet in Auroville. He describes his various findings from his very first excavation attempt to his recent discoveries as well as the challenges that accompanied them. Additionally, he discusses the archeological park he established (which is situated on Crown Road between Solar Kitchen and Visitors Centre) and explains why he chose to create a ‘park’ instead of a conventional historical site.
