Basic Course in Hypnotherapy
I will teach this basic course from 11th- 13 January (Saturday to Monday) -  3 Days from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Tibetan Pavilion. Therapists, as well as those with an inclination for this work are welcome to participate.
Hypnotherapy is about being in a state of “awake sleep”. The moment a person closes the eyes, is aware and goes on an inner journey… he actually is in an hypnotic state. This is a state we experience in meditation, and it is also often used in therapy: Guided imagery, progressive relaxation - all these are states of hypnosis. The basics learned in these 3 days enable you to start off as such or integrating it with your therapy modality!
This course is the first of 5 certified courses of CHII  www.californiahypnosis.in  . CHII founder, Yuvraj Kapadia is connected to Sri Aurobindo and The Mother since childhood.  AV Today published an article on hypnotherapy (available with me).
A 70 page Script goes with the course, and is available in English, Francais and German.
Welcome for an exploration of consciousness, Sigrid
Number of participants is limited.                                                                                            
Sigrid, is an Aurovilian therapist, offering classical homeopathy (Sankaran) and transpersonal regression therapist.

Weekly sessions on Awareness Through the Body

The focus is to develop the awareness of what is happening inside. We spend much of our time involved in outer perception,
and most of the time we forget to develop our capacities for inner sensing.
The body has its own way of functioning, its own way of telling us what's going on inside, its own logic.
Much of our task is to learn to listen to it.

...And then it becomes also, a window to observe the other parts of our Being... a passage to access them.

Every Wednesday morning 7.00 to 8.30am, with Rosa.

Walking into Exile
The Dalai Lama arrives in Tawang
(March 31 to April 18, 1959)

The exhibition will be inaugurated by Prof Samdhong Rinpoche, former Kalon Tripa (Tibetan Prime Minister) on Saturday 28 March at 5 pm.


It will be followed by a talk by Samdhong Rinpoche on My Vision of Future Tibet.
All are welcome!


On March 31, 1959, the Dalai Lama and an entourage crossed over to India at Khenzimane in today’s Tawang district of Arunachal Pradesh.
He was received by a senior officer of the Ministry of External Affairs and the local Assistant Political Officer who handed over to him a message from Jawaharlal Nehru, the Prime Minister of India: “My colleagues and I welcome you and send greetings on your safe arrival in India. We shall be happy to afford the necessary facilities to you, your family and entourage to reside in India. The people of India, who hold you in great veneration, will no doubt accord their traditional respect to your personage. Kind regards to you.”
The Pavilion of Tibetan Culture invites to an exceptional exhibition of rare photos of the first days of the Tibetan leader as a refugee in India.
We have added more recent photos of Tawang district, particularly the majestic Gompa (monastery) and Urgyeling, the birth place of Tsangyang Gyatso, the Sixth Dalai Lama a few kilometers South of Tawang town. 
An excerpt from the Dalai Lama in his autobiography Freedom in Exile
(Entering India on March 31, 1959)
“…After bidding these people [his Khampa bodyguards] a tearful farewell, I was helped on to the broad back of a dzomo, for I was still too ill to ride a horse. And it was on this humble form of transport that I left my native land.
…We must have been a pitiful sight to the handful of Indian guards that met us at the border - eighty travellers, physically exhausted and mentally wretched from our ordeal. I was delighted, however, that an official I knew from my visit two years earlier was there to rendezvous with us. He explained that his orders were to escort me to Bomdila, a large town that lay a further week's travel away, for rest.”

The exhibition will remain open till March 1.

Glimpses on the History of Tibet

Click to see the exhibition pagesOn January 20, 2009, His Holiness the Dalai Lama visited Auroville to inaugurate the Pavilion of Tibetan Culture. Before leaving, he suggested that we work on an exhibition on the History of Tibet. The present display is our answer to His Holiness.

Long before the introduction of Buddhism, Tibet looked ‘inside’ to discover the secrets of the Spirit. This is clearly the thread linking these glimpses of the political history of the Roof of the World.

We have faced several difficulties in preparing the exhibition. The main one was how to slice several millennia of history in 25 portions without betraying the flow of events and people. Impossible said the experts; unfortunately (in fact fortunately) we had no choice but to try. This exhibition should be seen as 25 snapshots of this ancient nation’s history.

The two thankas presented by His Holiness gave a direction to our search.

The first, depicts Santarakshita and Padmasambhava, who established the roots of Buddhism in Tibet, particularly the Nalanda lineage and the Indian Tantrik tradition respectively; the second thanka of the Three Religious Kings demonstrates the military strength of the Tibetan Empire at one point in history; in His Holiness’s words: “There have been occasions when Tibetan rulers conquered vast areas of China and other neighbouring states. This, however, does not mean that we Tibetans can lay claim to these territories.”

These Glimpses show that in the past Tibet was an independent nation and though for sometime it lived in isolation, during most of the last 4000 years Tibet had constant contacts and interactions with the Click to see the exhibition pagesneighbouring nations and often influenced other cultures.

A prayer for peace

Message from His Holiness The Dalai Lama


I am very happy to know that on the last day of the year a mandala of light and prayers for peace will be offered at the Pavilion of Tibetan Culture in Auroville.

It is easy simply to pray for peace without doing much to bring it about, but I feel that such prayers will be both more effective and more fulfilling when combined with the simple practice of offering light.
This is a longstanding Buddhist tradition said to give rise to many benefits that include enhancing the wisdom being able to distinguish what is right from what is wrong and eliminating the darkness of ignorance, which is equated with the misconception of inherent existence.

It is further said that as a result of offering light, even while turning in the cycle of existence we will always find illumination and we will eventually become a light for the world. Another explanation equates offering light to the stability and clarity of patience. We cannot practise patience without wisdom and compassion, which is why it also contributes to overcoming ignorance.

Patience that is compared to light does not denote weakness, but rather strength of mind, the clear, stable nature of the mind that is not disturbed by other forces. Such patience has great qualities, like the clarity that knows what is to be done, what is necessary and what is not necessary.

Finally, it is easy to see that light has a pervasive and uplifting quality.

Therefore, I pray that as this year gives way to the next, due to the merit generated by your offerings and prayers on this occasion, the light of peace may shine clearly throughout the world.
