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.

Interview with Dominique

We invited Dominique to speak to the radio about her project SAVI and the circumstances for volunteers in Auroville. The zeal and passion for making a difference stands out while speaking with Dominique as she narrate’s the challenges and opportunities volunteers possess while contributing to Auroville. She points out volunteers are an integral part of the Auroville story, “We have Auroville because of the volunteers efforts over the years”. In this high energy exchange of ideas, she laid out various plans and ideas the community could adopt to safe guard their greatest asset, the volunteer workforce. In the recent past the change in visa policy of the Indian government has made things already tough for volunteers to freely come and participate in the Auroville experiment. She emphasis, the community too has developed some policies which make it difficult for the volunteers to imagine contributing to growth of the community. How have we reached a place where the volunteers are not only, not encouraged, but strangely are sometimes not even acknowledged for their unconditional giving. Recently she made a presentation in the CAT’s program, underlining the exact amount of contribution the volunteers make towards Auroville’s overall wealth. She has made some ground breaking discoveries and has also developed a detailed plan, to help the community reverse this situation of not being an ideal choice for volunteers coming from all over the world. Auroville belongs as much to them as to the people living here. With this strong determination to cause a break through, she will soon be initiating her LEAD project, to know more, support and contribute towards this endeavor you can contact her on

Synthesis of Yoga Pt. 1, Ch. 8

Sri Aurobindo: the Synthesis of Yoga, Part 1 Yoga of Divine Works, Chapter 8 the Supreme Will, page 208. This chapter will be recorded in 2 parts, ending on page 220.

“Abandoning all dharmas, all principles and laws and rules of conduct, take refuge in me alone.” These are the words spoken to the Karmayogin in the Gita. We must have the faith and the courage to utterly trust ourselves, unconditionally surrender ourselves (take refuge) into the hands of the Lord, leaving behind our mental limitations.
A mind fallen into silence is only a channel for the Light and Truth of the divine knowledge; the ocean of the Infinite flows through him and moves him … forever.

Summer Jazz with Jazz Night

We hosted Vera and Juriaan in our studio, and they came with an invitation to Sunday 16th of April Jazz Concert – “Jazz Nigth” at Bharat Nivas Auditorium. Apart from Vera and Juriaan we will listen as well Matt, Mishko, Rolf and Sreenath , playing some of the original compositions along with some jazz standards. And as Vera promised there will be some light Latino jazz songs to swing us into the summer.
p.s. the soundtrack is from their rehearsal at Kalabhumi studio
