Garba Dance

Garba is a form of dance which originated in the state of Gujarat in India. The name is derived from the Sanskrit term Garbha (“womb”) and Deep (“a small earthenware lamp”). Many traditional garbas are performed around a centrally lit lamp or a picture or statue of the Goddess Shakti. The circular and spiral figures of garba have similarities to other spiritual dances, such as those of Sufi culture (garba being an earlier tradition). Traditionally, it is performed during the nine-day Hindu festival Navaratri Nava = 9,nights). Either the lamp (the Garba Deep) or an image of the Goddess, Durga (also called Amba) is placed in the middle of concentric rings as an object of veneration.

Mana Fashion Design Studio

The Mana Fashion Design Studio is a project created and run by a team of 3 Aurovillians, Claire, Rv, and Julie. Each one of them carries an artistic background (painting, graphic designing, music) and they take their inspiration from traditional arts and crafts from around the world. All their products are entirely hand made and every piece is unique with its’ own delicate embroidery and special fabrics. At the moment, they open their studio (Located at Sukhavati) every Wednesday and Saturday between 9;30 and 12 for women to come and find the perfect piece of clothing or one of their gorgeous bags as well as interact with the artisans themselves. Mana has a website on which you may look through their designs and learn more about the whole project:

Rachel's Story

An Interview you must listen to. I met Rachel some weeks ago when she had just arrived in Auroville and immediately, I could not help but notice what a kind person she was. A few days ago, I decided to interview her knowing that she had traveled quite a bit and it may make for an interesting story. This story was however something I was not prepared for. In this interview, Rachel talks about her life and what kept her going in spite of what hardships came her way.

The Words of The Mother, Vol. 14 A discovery in Morocco points to the
oldest Homosapiens fossils found so far. An international team of researchers uncovered 300,000 year-old fossil bones of Homo sapiens, a find tha is approximately 100,000 older than any other previously discovered Homosapiens fossils.The discovery, reported in two papers published June 8, 2017 in the journal Nature (here and here), was made at Jebel Irhoud, Morocco.
The team noted that the fossils reveal a complex evolutionary history of mankind that likely involved the entire African continent. Professor Jean-Jacques Hublin is a a palaeoanthropologist at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany. Hublin said in a statement:We used to think that there was a cradle of mankind 200,000 years ago in east Africa, but our new data reveal that Homo sapiens spread across the entire African continent around 300,000 years ago.

Princesse Polignac

My Life in Revolution with the Princess Constance de Polignac.
The life of the Princess Constance de Polignac is the exceptional journey of a Woman’s Life, crossed since early childhood by extraordinary trials and experiences, which led her from the sophisticated spheres of a princely aristocracy linked to the history of France … to deserts and Virgin forests of the First Peoples who initiated it, and immediately recognized as master and healer.
This unique experience, integrated in consciousness in each of the cells of her woman’s body, places at the heart of her life path the status of the Feminine and her recognition by the Masculine, “a crucial stake in the construction of a completely new world”.
Presented by the French Pavilion.
