Maybe it is unique?

The creative radio workshop led by Chlo last week offered six days to experiment with different sounds. Here we are trying to weave the rich sounds of the Auroville forests, roads and cafes into a story about tango.

New Category

In todays’ news we feature short interview with Bascar, who volunteers with Auroville Film Festival 11 team as technical support. Over seventy films are in for the reviewing, and need to be categorize and prepared for screening at the Festival. In the team they realized that there are some films which do not fit into any category but it would be nice to see them anyway. Ganesh Chaturthi Day is on Thursday, the 1st of September. Everyone is welcome at the Ganesh temple of Auroville, from 9.30 to 11 am.

To feel hurt by what others do or think or say is always a sign of weakness and proof that the whole being is not exclusively turned towards the Divine, not under the divine influence alone. And then, instead of bringing with oneself the divine atmosphere made of love, tolerance, understanding, patience, it is one’s ego that throws itself out, in response to another’s ego, with stiffness and hurt feelings, and the disharmony is aggravated. The ego never understands that the Divine has different workings in different people and that to judge things from one’s own egoistic point of view is a great mistake bound to increase the confusion. What we do with passion and intolerance cannot be divine, because the Divine works only in peace and harmony.
The Mother (Words of the Mother – II, 2004 ed., p. 279)

Vasudev Murthy on the Oudh

Professor Vasudev Murthy has incorporated and adapted the Indian/Hindustani scales and music technique to the Arabic Oudh. For him music is a true friend. Feeling the music is the most essential aspect of appreciation, learning and playing. Raags are names of feelings, when played right, they create a perceivable image for the listener. Recognition of notes is a process that takes time and experience and is a milestone to reach. Musicians not only hear sounds but also hear the parallel structures of the notes, but it does not come easy.

Professor Vasudev Murthy is the author of the book “What the Raags Told Me”.

Excellent and accomplished musicians from Auroville and Pondicherry musical communities had come together in an attempt to fuse Indian classical music with jazz. The compositions have emerged from selected Indian ragas played on sarod with jazz on saxophone and guitar, run side by side while transporting their music on parallel tracks rather than attempting to merge them together.

You must do the work as an offering to the Divine and take it as part of your sadhana. In that spirit the nature of the work is of little importance and you can do any work without losing the contact with the inner presence.The Words of The Mother, Vol.14
