Auroville's relationship to other communities

Eternity in an hour Tuesday, 13 July 2010
On Monday morning, 12th of July Bharat Nivas was joyfully crowded with many children and Aurovilians for the release of the book Passage made by Auroville teenaged students of Auroville as illustration of their educational growth and development. Shri Kapil Sibal, the Union Minister for Human Resource Development released the book with informal talk about education, and Auroville, which for him encompass within the spirit of the world, the spirit of human beings. For him a thing of beauty is a joy forever, and the beauty is the discovery of the truth. But the road to discovery is not visible because we need to dwell into the soul and figure out what we are here for. And that's why he sees this particular publication Passage very emotive, because we are truly passengers. 

Sraddhalu Ranade, invited by the Newcomer Program Team, offered a lecture at Savitri Bhavan the 19th of June 2010. Sraddhalu is a scientist, educationist and scholar residing at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram; Pondicherry. This talk covers a broad spectrum of themes relating to life in Auroville, from the essential spiritual truths that it seeks to realize, to the practical forms and means that need to be worked on. Among other things, it covers issues such as Auroville's relationship to other communities, attitude in dealing with daily trials and struggles in the community, critical difference between daily work and karma-yoga, practical hints and secrets to Auroville's success that are embedded in the Charter of Auroville. Introduction by Julia for the Newcomer Program team.
