“Love is like a flame changing the hard into the malleable, then sublimating even the malleable into a kind of purified vapor. It doesn’t destroy: it transforms.
Love, in its essence and in its origin, is like a white flame obliterating ALL resistances. You can have the experience yourself: whatever the difficulty in your being, whatever the weight of accumulated mistakes, the ignorance,
incapacity, bad will, a single SECOND of this Love – pure, essential, supreme – melts everything in its almighty flame. One single moment and an entire past can vanish. One single TOUCH of That in its essence and the whole burden is consumed.
It’s easy to understand how someone who has this experience can spread it and act upon others, since to have it you must touch the unique, supreme Essence of the whole manifestation – the Origin and the Essence, the Source and the Reality of all that is; then you immediately enter the realm of Unity where there is no more separation among individuals:
it’s a single vibration that can repeat itself endlessly in outer forms.”
Mother’s Agenda , 10 January 1961.

CAT13: Auroville is Volunteerland

This CAT’s meet (Creating Auroville Together) was on the most crucial topic to Auroville, which are the volunteers. As someone once said, without volunteers there would be no Auroville. And for this utmost important service of facilitating the volunteers, we have the SAVI service. SAVI had created this CAT’s meet and gave a heart touching presentation on the workings of SAVI to support the volunteers and also an insight into the contribution volunteers are literally making into the Auroville lifestyle, with an underscore that they are being perhaps taken for granted rather than cherished. Who were the first set of Aurovillians, the Volunteers!
SAVI team through its members gave a presentation based on facts and figures about their day-to-day working and in a unique manner invited an entire array of real-time sharing from existing volunteers, something the audience could relate to. SAVI pointed out about the stringent rules of the visa process and also some of the rules of Auroville community are not so encouraging for volunteers. They with proper projections proved the actual accounted contribution done by volunteers which is more than 3.5 crores, and a question was naturally left imposing to the participating community members, why so are volunteers preferred lesser than visiting guest in terms of housing and contributions? In simple words why are the volunteers often found in hardships and how can we create resources which give the message of Auroville being a Volunteerland, WELCOME VOLUNTAIRE’.

49th Foundation Day of Auroville

Right after the sunrise bonfire at the Matrimandir, Aurovillians have participated in the photo gathering at Tibetian Pavilion on 28 February 2017 to celebrate the 49th Foundation Day of Auroville.

Participants were formed in the shape of ‘The Mother’s symbol’ which resembles the message of human unity and and divine consciousness. The photos were captured by the drone camera organized by Max and other members of Auroville International.

Speaking to Auroville Radio, Mr. Julia, an American who has been at Auroville International since its foundation said that this 49th Foundation Day is just special because Auroville would be gearing up for the golden jubilee celebrations next year and would cherish all the activities done so far at Auroville. He also thanked the local authorities especially the people of Pondicherry who have been generous is extending help and the helping spread the mission of human unity and peace for global development and divine consciousness.

Kavitha from Youth Link and Anandi from the Realization of Auroville have expressed their views at the program.

How can we restructure the TDC ?

Presentation by the core group, selected to come up with ‘Terms of Reference’ which will further enable the Auroville Council, and the community on the whole in fulfilling this daunting task of re-structuring the Town Planning & Development Council (TDC). Last year, the Auroville council was asked to facilitate a process to restructure the TDC, the core group working on this comprised of Martin, Sauro, Pashi, Shama, Suhasini, Mamta, Elvira, Lionel and Christiane. The presentation was fully loaded with useful content and consist of guidelines through which restructuring of TDC could be accomplished. The depth of the content and the importance of this procedure saw the meeting going into overtime with only a few people ready to leave this discussion midway. A lot of healthy debate and constructive insights were offered by the members of the community attending the presentation. The group had invited a special artist to create infographics (www.weibkekodi.de) to help break down the heavy content and had created many posters and charts to help envision the key points in reference and the overall presentation was concise. But a point noted by Sauro was, “in the meeting too much time was used in discussing the organization and selection process rather than the content” but maybe that underscores the people’s intimate involvement and keen sense for details for restructuring of one of our most important working group, which will directly be responsible in shaping our future in Auroville.
