The news today features an excerpt from Jyoti’s introduction of the symposium ‘Exploration of the National Soul’ plus the insights of B on this profound topic. Also featured is the pond-like condition of the Auroville Library, again flooded due to the rains, due to the lower confines of the space housing the Auroville Library; a yearly occurrence for the last 15 years. Announcements include the 150th anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore to be be commemorated through the Tamil Heritage Centre and, NOW: the Nomadic Orchestra of the World presented by the Italian Pavilion.

Why dost thous recoil from a mask? Behind its odious, grotesque or terrible seemings Krishna laughs at thy foolish anger, thy more foolish scorn or loathing and thy most foolish terror. When thou findest thyself scorning another, look then at thy own heart, and laugh at thy folly. – From Sri Aurobindo’s Thoughts and Aphorisms.
