Remembering Kannan as he moves on

Kannan represents a generation of persons who are etched in my memory as they played a large role in the life we shared of Auroville’s early struggles and hopes. The straightforward devotion to the Mother is touching to remember as the particular caliber of this generations contribution leaves us. Frederick remembers fondly the times that he shared with Kannan. We also discuss the ancient funeral rights practiced in the village and those that we are developing as an emerging culture to better express our beliefs in the absence of a religion

Auroville Pioneers :Shyama part 1

Francois and Rakhal have been, for the past three years, recording interviews of the few Aurovillians who had the great blessing of meeting Mother when she was still in her human body. They put the firsts stones, and dug the first tree holes, at a time where nothing was there. There are no more than thirty of them still with us. This project aims at keeping their memories for future generation, honored them as elders should be, but also at reviving our spirit and keep our path to The Dream. Listen to Shyama`s incredible life journey.
