We then headed for the world-acclaimed Aurobindo Ashram, build in 1926. One can easily walk to it from the beach. We had heard of different people having different experiences once in the Ashram. The tranquillity and aura of the place can’t leave you untouched. After 30 minutes of meditation at the samadhi, we picked up a few books from the Ashram’s book store. And how could we have missed out on shopping. Pondicherry is considered a hot destination for those interested in local craft, textile and silk, aromatics, leather goods and hand-made papers. So we hit La boutique d’ auroville and bought some excellent candles, incense sticks and oils for family and friends. What we couldn’t cover in our trip was Auroville, some 10 km from Pondicherry and is said to have its unique cosmopolitan culture. The chic streets, elegant houses, excellent restaurants and wine makes you wonder if this could be the place you could stay forever. French legacy very much a part of Pondicherry 21 Sep, 2008, ET Bureau

musings... Aside from yoga... I've started studying Sanskrit again. I've started studying the Upanishads. I've started studying something Rod likes to call the Philosophy of Evolution. I've started reading more poetry (mostly by Sri Aurobindo who is a really amazing poet). And I've also started studying the history of linguistics. All of those things are once a week, for about an hour. So on top of the hours I'm at school teaching, I have five more hours taking "courses" at Savatri Bhavan. It sort of seems like a lot having typed it out here, but I'm really quite interested in all of it, and if it gets to be too much, I'll drop some of it. No worries until it happens. And it might not happen. So that's about it in my world. om shanti shanti shanti... Posted by sally at 2:04 AM

Chapter Too - Part 1 ... compact idea of my work, my studio, Mandala Pottery, other potteries in Auroville and the setting of Auroville, an international experiment in communal living in South India, based on the philosophy of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.

Gorgeous group: Sri Aurobindo once described flowers as the moment’s representations of things that are in themselves eternal. The Hindu: Tamil Nadu News: Splendorous shade

When Sri Aurobindo came to Pondicherry in search of a new light. He used to get five rupees from a friend and four persons used to live on this. Suksy's Pensieve: Intellectual Speech - Part II

Sri Aurobindo wrote in his Bande Mataram days that it was their inner force and their sense of discipline which pulled them out of their difficulties. » The Mother in Japan II

Sri Aurobindo's book "The Life Divine" has a chapter called "The Origin of Ignorance" (Book II, Part I Chapter 12). FYI - Almost all of Aurobindo's writings, including The Life Divine are available as PDF downloads from the ashram. Posted by: Michael H September 19, 2008 at 05:00 AM
