Presenting Internships

For Shriya, our internship student from Dehli, was today her last day in Auroville, and at that occasion, and to say goodbye to her, we talked about her experience along with Ishana(who is still staying with us).
Shriya mentioned that none of the blogs she has read prior to coming, has not talk about the energy of the space, and if one wants to understand it, would need to stay here for longer period….
Ishana experience in life is not to expect too much in order not to be disappointed, but is amazed over the Auroville , which she sees as testament to sheer determination ; she met people who gave up “old” (material) life to come to AV to dedicate their life to a cause …
Both are joyfully talking about their experiences in past month, and we can add that they were helpful, and also inspiring addition to our team.

The Force of Consciousness

We talked with Loretta, who is going to the USA in a week.’ Following her line of service to the Mother, she is invited to lecture in California.’ When you serve something, its vibration becomes part of you.’ Serving Mother means receiving her consciousness.’ Loretta received an inner push to lecture. This started with five talks on the Supramental Transformation connected with her recent exhibition.’ Eight presentations in seven weeks will include four of these talks, a talk on Savitri, a question/answer session on Auroville, and a talk to children.’ She will speak at the AUM Conference in Lodi, the California Institute of Integral Studies and the Cultural Integration Fellowship in San Fransisco, the East/West Cultural Center in Los Angeles, and Meditation Mount in Ojai.
