Economics for People and Earth: The Auroville Case 1968-2008

This book provides fascinating insights into the challenges, creativity and commitment of the Aurovilians in building a collective economy based on the visions of universal harmony, human unity and individual flourishing. It contains original and excellent research on four decades of development, dealing not only with the economic history but also the forms of employment and work in and around Auroville. It discusses in detail the unique features of Auroville’s financial structure including the notion and practice of ownership, the role of money, the patterns of production and distribution and the sustainability of the ‘economic model’. The book is highly recommended for those who are interested in understanding the complexities of pursuing alternative and participatory forms of communal living.

La Filosofia dell’Evoluzione (Italian)

Come presentata qui, La Filosofia dell’Evoluzione è un compendio di lezioni presentate da Rod Hemsell presso l’Università dell’Unità Umana ad Auroville nel 2008, 2009, 2012 e 2013. La spinta principale nello yoga di Sri Aurobindo è sempre stata verso una partecipazione attiva all’evoluzione umana e questo è il concetto che ha fissato e definito fin dall’inizio la differenza dello yoga di Sri Aurobindo e della Madre da tutti gli altri. Con la sua vasta conoscenza della filosofia e del pensiero di numerosi filosofi, e la sua familiarità con la scienza attuale, Rod è in grado di guidare il lettore attraverso lo sviluppo del pensiero in queste discipline e ci mostra il luogo che Sri Aurobindo, precursore illuminato, ci ha indicato come prossimo obiettivo. Queste lezioni non sono una salita difficile o noiosa verso altezze rarefatte, piuttosto, sono esplorazioni istruttive dei campi base più ampi che circondano il monte; è lasciato a Sri Aurobindo ed alla Madre la guida alla nostra ascesa. Tuttavia, con questa esplorazione della terra ferma, diventiamo sempre più sicuri che le nostre Guide verso le cime innevate in realtà sanno di che cosa parlano. Questa versione in lingua italiana riprende, su indicazione dell’autore, i capitoli più indicativi della versione originale inglese, che permettano comunque al lettore di seguire un filo conduttore lineare e chiaro del percorso di pensiero seguito da Rod Hemsell nelle sue letture.

Il Libro. Parole dagli scritti di Mère e Sri Aurobindo

Questo è stato il primo libro in lingua italiana sulle opere di Sri Aurobindo e Mère, comparso nel 1972 ed oggi completamente esaurito. Approvato dalla Madre, che ne ha manoscritto il titolo, viene riproposto dalla Comunità Aurora del Centro Sri Aurobindo e Mère che provvede alla sua stampa nel 1998 in formato cartaceo. Il volume si divide in due parti. La prima contiene la traduzione di alcuni “Entretiens” che la Madre ha tenuto dal 1951 sino al 1958, tutti i mercoledì e i venerdì nella palestra scoperta, in quello che all’Ashram viene chiamato il “Play-ground”. La seconda parte contiene parole di Sri Aurobindo sulla Madre, su quello che è la Madre. Ora questo prezioso documento viene riproposto in formato ebook da Auro e-Books.

A way of exploring Human Unity in Auro e-Books

The Auro e-Books Project is an efficient meeting of good-will, intention and aspiration to achieve technical perfection and maintain a “conscious presence” during the work so as to reveal as much as possible our highest possibilities.

It is a laboratory of evolution and consciousness, of brotherhood and sharing. There are no set limits of time (everyone gives to the project as much as she/he can), nor of space (we use Skype, e-mail, and social networks to work together).
