Last Wednesday, 22nd of April a "Conversation Cafe" on Holistic Food Systems took place at La Terrace. There were not as many participants as had been hoped for, but still a very interesting conversation took place. Some well known Auroville faces such as Krishna, Anandi, Antonio, and Marc (of course) took part as well as some guests and visitors, too. Main theme was a question: Is Auroville really working towards a holistic food system? Or, what could we do to become self sustainable?

Teaching trough heart

Education is a learning process. In many traditional education models, children are forced to learn solely by repetition and test taking. An atmosphere of pressure prevails at the same time with pressure on both the students and teachers to perform. In other systems, however, the emphasis is placed on what's happening inside of the children, teaching them how to connect to their heart and spirit. Children are encouraged to access their own inner voice and communicate from that deep place. Chris, an American teacher, who has taught in different schools in various countries around the world, discusses in the interview some of her experiences teaching with both traditional and alternative methods in oder to find a balance between them in the name of a child.

“My name is Swamynathan. I studied in Kanchipuram, but I came to the village of Irumbai to work in the temple there, which is actually our family temple. I have been working there for the past four years performing puja. Irumbai temple is a very ancient one. It is said that long ago Thirunanna Sambanther came to this temple, singing a song regarding Kaduvali. In front of the temple there's a Banyan tree, where he had sat in meditation, as for the past year there had been no rain. During that time his only food was the leaves of the Banyan tree.” To download this program (in Tamil) click here.

“I see music as a combination of numbers. The music harmony is a beauty of number sequence. You can't touch numbers. They are beyond the matter. The material world is based on number's canons. They are timeless and never-ending. Their harmony helps you to get out of the mental frame and feel the Divine.” Alexander Zhikharev, a Russian inventor of a unique musical instrument - the set of specially tuned plate bells, is sharing with us in the interview the source of his inspiration in Russian.

Touching the Soul through Music
Written by Marlenka
Wednesday, 22 April 2009
“The more I live life, the more I play, it seems like I have so much to say, but then I have nothing.. I'm not here to become a master, I'm here to be present, be with people and enjoy life, be conscious in every single breath. Each breath we take is all we have. Until you get to that place of silence inside yourself you are not able to feel life. That's what music is all about, that's all about silence” - says Oliver Rajamani, a renowned world music artist from Tamil Nadu. He has created his own music by arranging traditional folk songs of the Middle East, European Roma, Spain, Africa, North America, and India chronicling their historic path and by adding new compositions not found anywhere else on the globe.
