ACRES FOR AUROVILLE FLIER – 24 NOVEMBER 2022

Auroville was created to be a first pathway towards a spiritual future. Inspired by Sri Aurobindo’s evolutionary vision of a “progressing universal harmony”. The Mother stated “Auroville is the place where this new way of living is being worked out”. And because the way forward is “a completely new road”. The Mother called it the “Great Adventure” – inviting us to help build this pioneering path and progressively advance together, step by precious and often difficult step!

LFAU LETTER – 24TH NOVEMBER 2022

These are turbulent times in the world, as well as in Auroville. And in these heightened times, we keep faith, helped by remembering the long-term view, and also by what is the secret of Auroville: the deeper soul connection that has brought most Aurovilians to Auroville and which connects friends and donors to Auroville. We are together – united at a deeper level – and sharing a common hope, a common vision and a common adventure. Version française en pdf … பிடிஎஃப்பில் தமிழ்ப் பதிப்பு

THE ROAD TO THE LIFE I ALWAYS DESIRED – BY TIA PLEIMAN

Tia Pleiman is an American art therapist and educator who “fell in love” with Auroville in 2006, where she discovered The Mother and Sri Aurobindo whose works expanded and transformed her life and work. She has contributed over the years to several Auroville and AV outreach schools, and is now an official “Newcomer”. For Tia, Auroville provides the “creative, spiritual, multi-cultural, educational and environmental qualities” of the life she has always desired.

SRI AUROBINDO’S FIVE DREAMS

Very significantly, India attained its independence on the 15th of August 1947, Sri Aurobindo’s 75th birth anniversary. On that historic occasion, All India Radio requested Sri Aurobindo to give a message to a free India, broadcast on the transitional night of August 14th. In this message Sri Aurobindo spoke of his “Five Dreams” – for India, humanity, and the world. To finish this landmark 150th year, we share Sri Aurobindo’s historic message.

THE VALUE OF AUROVILLE’S FARMS

Auroville’s farmers are engaged in applied research, networking and policy making: Annapurna farm, South India’s first organic dairy farm, helped to set the national standards, and Dr. Lucas Dengel, secretary of the Biodynamic Association of India, has built up EcoPro with its vast educational outreach in the use of EM (micro-organisms) for farming and sanitation. The Sustainable Livelihood Institute (SLI) is one such initiative to reach out since many years to Tamil Nadu through a multitude of channels, collaborating with the Tamil Nadu State Government

A4A FLIER – 15TH AUGUST 2022

Upon Sri Aurobindo’s passing, The Mother inscribed these words on his Samadhi : “May we never forget even for a moment, all we owe to Thee”. Then, in 1972, The Mother issued this call “Let us all strive to be worthy of Sri Aurobindo’s Centenary”. And now for the 150th anniversary of Sri Aurobindo’s birth, it is we who express our wish, our gratitude, and our aspiration to serve his high dreams, and to help build the City of Dawn.
