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”

Dr. Kumar ‘Vet On Wheels’

Meet Dr. Kumar, in Auroville since 1995, and became Aurovillian since 2008. He is a genius voluntary veterinary doctor in Auroville. So what is the difference between an ordinary doctor and Dr. Kumar, his passion to reach the animal, “not to bring the animal to the clinic, it is stressful for the animal, I like to reach the animal” – Dr Kumar.
He is designing a unique veterinary services with a ‘Mobile Clininc’ and terms himself as “Vet on Wheels”. Dr. Kumar has performed thousands of neuter surgery on dogs in Auroville and Within the bio-region, for the strays in the villages on a cost-to-cost basis. He has invented and mastered a new technique for this surgery, which involves least incision, only 1 injection process, 3 layers of skin stitching and helps the animal revive and be normal within the same day, unlike the general practice which immobilse the animal to intensive care for 3-4 days atleast. Auroville is natural catalyst for pioneering and innovative minds which carries with itself also the spirit to serve, meeting Dr. Kumar gives the same feeling. Every project or proposal requires support and encouragement from the society on the whole, Dr. Kumar wants to realize the dream of providing best animal care in Auroville and is looking for resources and understanding from the community. To contact Dr. Kumar you can call on mobile no. – +919443203092.
More we share, More we care.

Savitri, B. II, C. XI, Part 3

Savitri, Book II, The Book Of The Traveller Of The Worlds, Canto XI, The Kingdoms And Godheads Of The Greater Life, Part 3

The Traveller is reaching the summit of the triple stairs of the Greater Mind. He sees the sovereign Kings of Thought whose thoughts are partners in the vast control of the commanding thoughts of the creator Self. With their abstract purity of godless sight they brought to mind what mind could never reach. This was the play of the bright gods of Thought, attracting into time the timeless Light. They have planned to snare the feet of Truth and keep her captive for the thinker’s joy. Sri Aurobindo shows us how each of us relates to Truth and how we each use Truth for our own purposes, but Truth is greater than her forms. She remains herself and infinite.

Auro and Auroville

Yesterday’s interactive session on exploration of full scholarship opportunities for further study at Auro University in Surat, Gujarat, and possible exchange between Auro and Auroville schools, and projects alike, brought another possibility for our children who might wish to continue with their academic education.
The vision and mission of Auro University is based on the principles of Integral Education, and the ideals of The Mother and Sri Aurobindo.
The session was facilitated by Chali, Lalit, Gijs and Mike, with Anoop from Auro University also present. As part of the information sharing we were assured that all students from Auroville Schools, even those who are not graded or given a ‘recognized’ high school diploma, will have an equal opportunity to enroll in a chosen program
