How magic happens!

How it feels when you finally ‘realise’ that this is what you’ve been looking for…
On Tuesday, 18th April 2017, SAVI hosted a volunteer presentation in Tibetan Pavillion, two volunteers Jyothirmayee and Mayank, working in “Kenji’s Japanese Carpentry workshop” shared their life experience and how Auroville managed to give them what they have been looking for their whole life. They shared how they managed to deal with all the problems , how they managed to keep their basket full of questions aside and have an empty basket for answers on them. Jyothirmayee told a story how she felt magic happening when her 40 year plan started in like a snap. Mayank shared his love for wood, how they speak to him. After years of struggle inside out, they found something they have been looking for.
All you need to do for yourself is keep cleaning the stream of your flow and to put mind, body and heart in harmony and the magic will happen. This is how one can find that one “thing” they are looking for.
The applaud at the end of each talk spoke how everyone was so deeply touched by their stories.

Entervista informal con huespedes

Que sienten los huespedes de Auroville cuando visitan el parque de la Unidad del Matrimandir? Que experiencia vivencian cuando ingresan a la camara de concentracion?
Mientras cenamos entre amigos en un restaurante local, entrevistamos a Jimena, una Argentina. Aqui les compartimos esta entrevista informal, que surgio espontaneamente.

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”

Man, sole awake…

Once more Aryamani and an actors ensemble had worked on a selection from Sri Aurobindo’s Savitri, trying to evoke, to bring close to us, its vastness, infinity, its mantric power.
Through voice, sounds and movements.

It is an exploration and an ongoing search. It is a prayer and a call.

Auroville Architecture with CISS

Auroville architecture has been a source of inspiration for thousands of people, everyone visiting Auroville can only stare in astonishment and wonderment, how did they manage it?
Well today as a special orientation for the students visiting from California Institute of Integral Studies, Suhasini and Piero put together a marvelous presentation. It was an entire spectrum of architecture, Piero with his special insights on the early Auroville days and construction of Matrimandir and Suhasni with her sharing of the ideology and practice of her unit in creating architecture of Auroville that we see around us. Projects like, Matrimandir, Solar Kitchen, Visitor Center, Future School, Unity Pavilion were some of striking projects discussed in details by the two master architects.
This is a rare presentation, created by Piero with his collection of photographs which gives the real sense of the time when humanity as a whole embarked onto creating Matrimandir and eventually Auroville.
