Growth Management for Greenbelt

The Auroville Integral Sustainability Insitute for the 4th time invited group of post graduate students of planning from Queens University, Canada to be part of learning exchange between Auroville and them.
Anna Geladi, Phillip Pirell along with Lalait came to our studio to invite us to a presentation on Growth Management Framework for Settlement in Auroville Green Belt, which would take place on Friday 15th at 4.30pm at SAIIER Conference room.
Both Anna and Phillipe found out the particularities of the space, and complexity of given topic, which requires a bit different approach to other planning in the world. Yet, the group of 12 students with their professor, managed to focus on the topic of development in green belt, and came up with suggestion, which we would hear at the presentation.

Ut queant laxis Resonare fibris

Another edition of healing frequencies, and we are going back to ancient solfeggio scale by featuring tracks from Gregorian chants, along with orgianl ut, re mi…and other sacred music.
The origin of the ancient Solfeggio scale can be traced back to a Medieval hymn to John the Baptist, and the original frequencies were capable of spiritually inspiring mankind to be more “god-kind”.
The original Solfeggio scale was developed by a Benedictine monk, Guido d’Arezzo (c. 991 AD – c. 1050 AD). It was used by singers to learn chants and songs more easily. Today we know the Solfeggio scale as seven ascending notes assigned to the syllables Do-Re-Mi-Fa-So-La-Ti. The original scale was six ascending notes assigned to Ut-Re-Mi-Fa-Sol-La. The syllables for the scale were taken from a hymn to St. John the Baptist, Ut Queant Laxis, written by Paulus Diaconus.
Guido d’Arezzo
The secret meanings of the ancient syllables
Each tone has its own unique potential
As you already know, the syllables used to denote the tones are: Ut, Re, Mi Fa, Sol, La. They were taken from the first stanza of the hymn to St. John the Baptist:
Ut queant laxis Resonare fibris
Mira gestorum Famuli tuorum
Solve polluti Labii reatum
Sancte Iohannes
Literal translation from Latin: “In order that the slaves might resonate (resound) the miracles (wonders) of your creations with loosened (expanded) vocal chords. Wash the guilt from (our) polluted lip. Saint John.”
In other words, so people could live together in peace and communicate in harmony about the miracle in their lives, and how God blessed them to produce this “magic”, people’s true unpolluted spiritual natures required revelation. The above text seems to suggest that Solfeggio notes open up a channel of communication with the Divine.

King Lear

In the high spirited , intimate space of Adishakti Theatre, classical William Shakepseare’s play King Lear is set on stage.
Auroville Theatre group presents King Lear by amazing act of home based actors, along with visiting actors and actresses. Tragedy follows the original language but is set in current time, thus giving actors a freedom to express their characters by their visions. Hard, demanding roles, lengthy time wise has shown the dedication, maturity, and brilliance of the actors.

Classical Shakespeare’s tragedy depicts the gradual descent into madness of the title character, after he disposes of his kingdom giving bequests to two of his three daughters based on their flattery of him, bringing tragic consequences for all. Derived from the legend of Leir of Britain, a mythologicalpre-Roman Celtic king,

Due to the restoration work of Bharat Nivas Sri Aurobinod amphitheater, Auroville Theatre Group decided to stage the play at the Adishakti Theatre, Adishakti Laboratory for Theatre, Arts & Research on Edayanchavady Road. Adishakti Theatre with its funder Veenapani Chavla, who was deeply connected to Sri Aurobindo Ashram and Auroville. It is a fascinating place, with utmost respect to vernacular architecture, with reverence towards well being of humans, and nature , yet dedicated and focused in fields of performing arts.
