Synthesis of Yoga

This reading is Chapter VI The Synthesis of the Disciplines of Knowledge in its entirety, pages 335 through 342.

“The central aim of Knowledge is the recovery of the Self, of our true self-existence, and this aim presupposes the admission that our present mode of being is not our true self-existence.”

“We conceive of ourselves falsely, we see ourselves as we are not ….. this falsity is the root of a general perversion, confusion and suffering ….. our personal life and our communal life ….. are founded on a falsity ….. although through all this error a growing truth continually seeks to express itself.”

” ….. our primary aim in knowledge ….. to realise our own supreme Self ….. the pressing need of the individual, to arrive at the truth of his own being, set right its disorders, confusions ….. so that our whole existence may find their right basis, may live in our highest self ….. and obey no other law than that which proceeds from our highest self ….. ”

Auroville Papers

Much more than paper, Auroville Papers is a unit that works as a team where there is no hierarchy, but only friendship and sharing of creativity and responsibility. They work in true Auroville spirit.
This is one of the units that started in the early times when conditions were difficult, but nevertheless in time they have expanded and improved their work.
With the recent change of economy, Auroville Papers had to adapt, and this pushed the team to be more innovative. Now not only do they produce aesthetic stationery, but they have also extended their repertoire to include all sorts of handicrafts, such as: earrings, door screens, a large variety of decorative items, and also some art work. One item that particularly caught my eye was a beautiful sculpture of a white unicorn (see our video on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqW332od3KA). I felt like I had just walked into an art gallery rather than a paper factory.
Because of the economic change Luisa remarked that we cannot be passive. We always need to be challenged in life if we want to keep ourselves well and active, and stay awaken. It is a work of challenges and creativity says Jean Jaques.
These words reminded me that “all life is Yoga”.

GM on Code of Conduct

On the 23rd of October a general meeting was held to discuss the topic of “code of conduct for all trusts and units of the Auroville Foundation”. There was a good presentation along with many questions and doubts being raised.

Exploring Prosperity Gathering

Since a few months a movement has started in Auroville, a movement of reasoning and result.
A few community members have come together and are backing an initiative by the name of ‘Exploring Prosperity’. The group made an introduction in one of the ‘CAT’ meeting. They shared an open letter which spoke of their agenda of work. They invited other community members to join this initiative. There was a signature campaign. On 17th Oct they organized a 1st gathering of all the people wishing to join this collective work. More than 40 people attended the meeting and selected an area of work to participate. The process was inclusive and involving, here the participants in groups shared what is their definition for Auroville Prosperity and then worked on pointing out what are the real obstacles in achieving this kind of prosperity.
the meeting ended with, group members self organizing their next steps and the path they wish to take as a collective to explore solution to all the obstacles realized during this exercise.
The Team is committed to re-allign Auroville to its original ideal and vision, and not focus too much on finding faults but investing energy in finding solutions which can bring prosperity to Auroville.
