This bubbly spoken word poet arrived at Auroville to do her internship at Pavillion de France. Ayushi loves to travel, and she uses her words to paint pictures of her home town in Rajkot, Gujarat. But is coming home always as great as it is made out to be? Ayushi reveals the flip side of the place that never changes, even when you do.

Highest Health Through Nutrician

On the 4th of December 2017 in the reading room, at Savitri Bhavan, Dr Nandita Shah shared some of her deep knowledge on the subject of diet and nutrition and the link to many of the diseases such as cancer and diabetes which have severely increased in the last 50 years. She then gives many simple and logical explanations and reasons why we should change the food we eat to be simply more in tune with our instinctual and natural diet, in the same way that all animals instinctively know their natural food, to help alleviate some of these deadly diseases.
Let us all revert back to an organic plant based diet, let Auroville be a place and example to the world for the health and spiritual benefits of this simple shift.

Dr Nandita Shah has just had her new book “Reversing Diabetes in 21 Days” launched in India and published by Penguin Books. It’s available on Amazon and will soon be available at the Visitors Centre book shop too.

Synthesis of Yoga

Part Two The Yoga of Integral Knowledge, Chapter X The Realisation of the Cosmic Self, page 368.

” … find that self in all that seems to us at present to be outside us … to realise all things in this visible and sensible existence as God … then to go beyond to all that is behind … “

” the mind may be brought to a favourable state … in which, by the rending or withdrawing of the veil, the supramental vision may flood the mentality and change entirely all our seeing…. there will supervene eventually a change of becoming so that what we see, we become.”

Synthesis of Yoga

The Release from Subjection to the Body Chapter VII, pages 343 – 349:

” ….. what seems is not the Truth, that the self is not the body or life or mind ….. these are only its forms ….. “

” ….. our first step must be to set right our mind ….. so that it may arrive at its own relation with the Self ….. to create a separation between the Prakriti and the Purusha. Purusha is the soul that knows and commands ….. mistakes this physical working which we call the body for himself …. forgets that he is so much greater than the physical form ….. he is the Master ….. it is not fit the Master should be enslaved to his own workings, the Transcendal imprisoned in a form which exists only as a trifle in its own being.”

” ….. mind will come to know the Purusha seated within it ….. witness of the movements …. perceiver of experiences ….. this detachment can be made so normal ….. carried so far … this is the initial liberation of the mental being from servitude to the body ….. for by right knowledge put into practice liberation comes inevitably.”
