Synthesis of Yoga Pt. 1, Ch. 9

Continuing with part 1 the Yoga of Divine Works, Chapter 9 Equality and the Annihilation of Ego on page 226 through its conclusion on page 231.

Sri Aurobindo explains that for we must grow into equality of spirit; there is a stoical period of preparation of equality in which we learn not to run from that which pains nor run towards that which pleases, but to accept, face, bear and conquer. He calls this period a most elementary and yet a heroic age. This period of resignation and endurance shall result in the soul’s strength, equal to all shocks and contacts.

The follower of this Path will finally realize him/herself as the conscious instrument of the eternal Worker, having renounced, surrendered fully to the supramental Shakti his works as well as the fruits of his works.

Pem Flow by KinGi

“Connectivity, bio circuitry, aren’t we all vibrating along,
getting in and out of touch,
looping through some ups and downs,
feeling locked in or out,
free to contact, interact,
with whichever next big challenge flows by…”
(words by KinGi)

27th April (at Tibetan Pavillion) was an evening of vocally performed poetry describing some climatic sensations of an inner environment. A single man show cannot be better than this. KinJi amazed everyone with his narration and act and no doubt the words he used. Everything was so beautifully written and with each piece he expressed the struggles going on inside every person’s mind. It was an so great to listen him and to witness his acting, the expressions, changing voice notes, everything was so awestruking and touching.

A talk with Lisbeth and Ashwin

In the hustle of reaching to our destination we often forget to look around the path we are walking on. We just cross a lot of things without even noticing the beautiful depths they bear. And we do the same while going to Pondicherry from Auroville, we pass a small village called Muthialpet. Even the people traveling through this road daily don’t know that such a place even exist because they always try to run as fast as they could from there because of all the traffic but in this they forget to consider going inside the village and know it truely. Lisbeth and Ashwin decided to pay a visit to this village. Very impressively they captured the essence of this place in their photographs and exhibited them to let people know this place more closely and not judging it based on the outside traffic. They have showed Muthialpet in every light from dawn to dusk in their exhibition held in Pitanga.
To know more about the exhibition and the experience they had while shooting Muthialpet listen to the talk we had with the Photographers.

Le Pavillon de France présente

« Le nid du vent : recherche dystopique » Une « en-quête » sur l’habiter, l’utopie et la dystopie
Présentée par Julie Beauté, étudiante en éco-philosophie à Paris

Comment habitons-nous la Terre ? Quelle place nous donnons-nous, êtres vivants, les un-e-s les autres, les un-e-s avec les autres ? Quelles tranches de vies partageons-nous ? Comment construisons-nous notre demeure dans le monde ? Comment nos vies se pelotonnent-elles pour faire tomber les frontières de nos identités ?

C’est à ces questions que Julie, étudiante en éco-philosophie à Paris et actuellement volontaire à Auro-Orchard, tente de répondre. Elle partagera sa recherche en cours, en proposant de s’interroger sur la question de l’habiter, sur les notions d’utopie et de dystopie, sur les concepts de maison et de chez-soi – et leurs revers. Sortant des bibliothèques et s’implantant dans la terre et dans les romans (notamment de science-fiction), elle dressera l’esquisse d’une « philosophie de terrain » en train de se faire, pour tenter de comprendre comment les vies se mêlent, s’entrelacent et se confondent dans les replis du monde.

CAT 14 with Russian singing bells

On 21st April, in unity Pavillion last session of CAT14 was held and it was all about creating harmony. Russian Bells were used to demonstrate how harmony can be developed among various individuals and that too with minimal efforts, all you need is balancing between receiving and giving. Vera with her Russian bells showed us how with just a bit of practice the sound vibrations can be harmonised.
The 2 hour of ringing bells session was so soothing and relaxing, people meditated with the sounds. They shared the joy of sound and silence and to tune with others’ vibrations.
With the music, CAT 14 ended leaving everyone present there totally spaced out, still feeling the vibrations passing through them.
