Golden Sunbeams

Sunny afternoon was a perfect frame for yesterday’s inauguration of Golden Sunbeams at Matrimandir’s Boulder Garden. This was the first in the series of four, stretched over the Golden year, or Auroville 50th Anniversary, and it will be on view until 3rd of January 2018. On 1st of January , after early morning events it will be open to public again, otherwise all visitors who passes the Boulder Garden on their path to viewing point will be able to see it.
In short interview with curator of the exhibition Adil Writer we find out where the idea comes from, who is participating, and the next steps. As he says, there was an idea to showcase Auroville art outdoor in collective , which has not been done yet, and the team of Matrimandir supported the idea by proposing the Boulder Garden.
In this first edition are on display art works in different materials – from ceramic, wood, fiber glass….
and we can see works of Alexey Golubev, Henk Van Putten, Nele Martens, Priya Sundaravalli, Rkahee Kane, Sabirna Srinivas, Saraswati, Torkil Dantzer and Adil Writer.

A New Step For Auroville

Patrizia Saccá is a paralympic table tennis champion who overcame her disabilities by becoming a champion. She describes her visit to Auroville in Italian translated to English by her friend, Susmita. She is in awe of the Matrimandir and recalls her visit to the inner chamber with the help of Susmita, who is a pioneer of the Accessible Auroville project. She describes in vivid detail how the peaceful atmosphere made her feel, and the reason that she keeps going back to relive the experience. The interview is conducted outside the Matrimandir, the place that inspires Patrizia.
They also discuss the concept of human unity, which they feel goes beyond goes caste and color to include people with disabilities. Susmita and she remind us that we are, above all, human beings and we deserve to feel equally loved and respected. They shed light upon the importance of the issue of accessibility and are confident that a new step for the City That The Earth Needs is making Auroville fully accessible at all fronts. Patrizia also shares with us the secret behind her success and positivity in life.

Gli ascoltatori Italiani possono ascoltare l’intervista con Patrizia Saccá tradotta da Susmita in Ingese. Patrizia Saccá e’ un’atleta paraolimpica che sta visitando Auroville.

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.

How magic happens!

How it feels when you finally ‘realise’ that this is what you’ve been looking for…
On Tuesday, 18th April 2017, SAVI hosted a volunteer presentation in Tibetan Pavillion, two volunteers Jyothirmayee and Mayank, working in “Kenji’s Japanese Carpentry workshop” shared their life experience and how Auroville managed to give them what they have been looking for their whole life. They shared how they managed to deal with all the problems , how they managed to keep their basket full of questions aside and have an empty basket for answers on them. Jyothirmayee told a story how she felt magic happening when her 40 year plan started in like a snap. Mayank shared his love for wood, how they speak to him. After years of struggle inside out, they found something they have been looking for.
All you need to do for yourself is keep cleaning the stream of your flow and to put mind, body and heart in harmony and the magic will happen. This is how one can find that one “thing” they are looking for.
The applaud at the end of each talk spoke how everyone was so deeply touched by their stories.
