The meeting of man and God must always mean a penetration and entry of the Divine into the human and a self immergence of man in the Divinity.
But that immergence is not in the nature of an annihilation. Extinction is not the fulfilment of all this search and passion, suffering and rapture. The game would never have been begun if that were to be its ending.

Sri Aurobindo , Thoughts and Glimpses.

Happy New Year 2016

Auroville Radio Team wish to all our listeners, friends, family members ….aurovilians, guest, volunteers, newcomers….. HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016

The universe is a finite whole, but its content is infinite; the changes which occur in this infinity result from the action of Essence on substance, from the penetration, the permeation of quantity by quality, which brings about a constant and progressive organisation and reorganisation of the content of the universe.
The Mother

Bla Bla – Svaram

The Bla Bla Christmas Fare was a very special occasion for the workers of the Svaram music shop.

Svaram co-workers have been receiving training in playing music, and music theory ever since the beginning of the project from a succession of teachers, local and international. Many performances have been given in Auroville, India and even a few abroad.

The group’s performance at the Fare, accompanied by a flute player, was a success, with catchy drum rhythms and the crowd dancing in front of the stage.

UPS to Blame, Badminton

in today’s news we feature an excerpt of interview with Jan from Svaram talking on his reasons for hunger strike since last Friday incidents. One would expect that power cuts translate into lower electricity consumption bills but this not always the case. The culprit is the backup inverter with battery storage. About 30- 45% of energy that passes through an inverter system is lost. Tamil Heritage Centre Team invites us to celebrate Dasara Festival of Evolution at ILAIGNARKAL EDUCATION CENTRE every day 4pm to 6.30pm from tomorrow until 24th.

Does the Divine exist in all things, even in the dustbin? The whole universe is the manifestation of the Divine, but a manifestation which begins with a total unconsciousness of its origin and rises little by little towards this consciousness.The Words of The Mother, Vol. 15

The method of gathering of the mind is not an easy one. It is better to watch and separate oneself from the thoughts till one becomes aware of a quiet space within into which they come from outside. Sri Aurobindo
