Book Which Sees the Future

Since Prof. Makarand Paranjabi was very inspired by Anu’s book he has received by Anu last month, he decided to return to Auroville and talk about it, and about the future.

Yesterday it was lively discussion regarding Anu Majuda’s Book – Auroville: A City for the Future at Bhumika Hall in Sri Aurobindo Centre for Studies – India and the World in Bharat Nivas.

In conversation with Makarand were Suryamayi, Deepti, Bill, Aster, and others in the presence of Anu, herself.

50th – Who, What, Where, When

By 50th Auroville Anniversary Core Team (Fabienne, Chali, David, Fred, along with Milan, Pala, Claudine) the community was invited to a workshop about preparations for Auroville’s 50th anniversary…
The workshop (interactive session) was aiming to inform the community on where we are today and to explore the next steps … or what we can do together.
Team leaded us through where we are at this moment with the preparations according to various possibilities – depending to either grant from Governemnt of India will be given or not.
50 years of existence of intentional community is a remarkable mark. Some members would prefer to celebrate it quietly, yet is pretty obvious that it will have quite an impact on life of the community, and surely cannot be ignored.
In second part of the event all were invited to explored possibilities how , and where one could actively participate.
Two years ago WC offered a theme for anniversary – Centering within , and during intensive participatory planning exercises theme evolved in vision:
to re-inspire our individual, collective aspiration in order to achieving of Auroville Charter and A Dream.

Desire takes a long time to get rid of entirely. But, if you can once get it out of the nature and realise it as a force coming from outside and putting its claws into the vital and physical, it will be easier to get rid of the invader. You are too accustomed to feel it as part of yourself or planted in you – that makes it more difficult for you to deal with its movements and dismiss its ancient control over you.

(Letters on Yoga, P – 1399)

“Love is like a flame changing the hard into the malleable, then sublimating even the malleable into a kind of purified vapor. It doesn’t destroy: it transforms.
Love, in its essence and in its origin, is like a white flame obliterating ALL resistances. You can have the experience yourself: whatever the difficulty in your being, whatever the weight of accumulated mistakes, the ignorance,
incapacity, bad will, a single SECOND of this Love – pure, essential, supreme – melts everything in its almighty flame. One single moment and an entire past can vanish. One single TOUCH of That in its essence and the whole burden is consumed.
It’s easy to understand how someone who has this experience can spread it and act upon others, since to have it you must touch the unique, supreme Essence of the whole manifestation – the Origin and the Essence, the Source and the Reality of all that is; then you immediately enter the realm of Unity where there is no more separation among individuals:
it’s a single vibration that can repeat itself endlessly in outer forms.”
Mother’s Agenda , 10 January 1961.

Rachel's Story

An Interview you must listen to. I met Rachel some weeks ago when she had just arrived in Auroville and immediately, I could not help but notice what a kind person she was. A few days ago, I decided to interview her knowing that she had traveled quite a bit and it may make for an interesting story. This story was however something I was not prepared for. In this interview, Rachel talks about her life and what kept her going in spite of what hardships came her way.
