Peace Bell at Tibetan Pavillon

The event at the Pavillon of Tibetan Culture was a special moment for the Aurovillian life. All the participants could meditate guided by the sound of Russian Peace Bell and play the bell too. The big Russian Peace Bell is a huge and big metal plate able to produce a great amount of bass frequencies with many harmonic waves. The full sound of the bell moves a lot of energy through the body, particularly if you stand behind it.

In the recording you can hear a brief introduction by Vera about the International Zone of Auroville, the story and the building of this particular instrument. Unfortunately the record can’t give back the whole feeling of live sound.

The Auroville Foundation Act

In September 1988, the Government of India protected Auroville by passing a unique Act of Parliament, the Auroville Foundation Act,1988. Alain Bernard, Frederick, Pashi and Paulette shared the background facts, anecdotes and personal experiences of the circumstances of the times in which Auroville was at stake. Listen to first-hand memories of meeting president Indira Gandhi without prior appointment or to the process of drafting the Act within two days and the actual adaptation of the Act which passed unanimously in both Houses of Parliament.
The CAT session took place in Unity Pavilion on January 31st, 2017.

The jazz band that played on the 25th January in Solitude farm was amazing.
