detail from artwork at The Free Heart

How can I say
how precious this is?
How deeply Life loves
when you allow to crack open?

How will you know
how wide are your wings
and gentle the wind
to the one who is broken?

While death is on its way
to bereave you of form
Love wants to love
No words need be spoken
                   
When will you see the innermost “me”
alive as the world thru the light of your eyes?
Sun and moon are only your shadow -
don’t hold the flood, leave all fear behind

from The Free Heart

Auroville U.S.A., Matagiri Center, and the New York Sri Aurobindo Study Group

The persons and entries in this section represent the substantial support, education and service efforts of New York adepts in the tradition of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother (see Photo Archive).  These include the Matagiri center initiated, among others, by Julian Lines and the Study Group and other activities of, among others, Miriam Belov. 

Principals from Auroville and the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in India are members of the Contemplative Alliance and both ISDnA and OneSpirit have done cooperative programs with them, and the New York based support groups.  These have concerned Aurobindo's vision of emerging collective consciousness and embodiment and been hosted by One Spirit.

There is no doubt that this thread is a major one in the ongoing evolution toward world shift and transformation.  Sri Aurobindo and The Mother were gigantic figures not only in the history of India but the evolution of world conscious- ness.  So, we provide a number of links regarding all these groups and persons below.
