The founders and expert coaches of Purnam from Auroville.
10+ Years of Transformative Coaching.
Auroville is the world’s largest international community of karmayoga dedicated to the spiritual evolution of mankind based on the teachings of Sri Aurobindo.
Purnam is a part of Auroville, the City of Dawn in the making in South India, near Pondicherry.
While the whole of Auroville is an international campus for karmayoga covering all aspects of the life of the city in the making for 50,000 people, the specific focus of Purnam is on spiritual education based on the ideals of Auroville and sharing it with the wider world.
Auroville is based on the vision of Sri Aurobindo and the task of giving a concrete form to Sri Aurobindo’s vision was entrusted to his spiritual collaborator the Mother. The creation of a new world, a new humanity, a new society expressing and embodying the new consciousness is the work she has undertaken. By the very nature of things, it is a collective ideal that calls for a collective effort so that it may be realised in terms of an integral human perfection.
The Meaning of Purnam
Purnam is a Sanskrit word that means integral, whole and complete.
When you live with internal conflicts and confusion, you are getting torn and psychologically fragmented. Thus you lose your wholeness. Then, you cannot engage with your life or work wholeheartedly. Eventually this internal fragmentation will manifest as outer friction and conflict with the larger whole of which you are a part. This friction and conflict manifests everywhere – within family and personal relationships, within organisation and teams, within society and Nations and within the larger ecosystems of which you are a part. To restore the outer harmony, first, you must restore your inner wholeness. This is the paradigm shift we at Purnam work with. This is the fundamental idea upon which the Purnam Community is built.
All movements of Nature are integral, evolving together as a whole. Every part is a whole in itself and evolves in harmony with the larger whole of which it is a part. Wholeness exists in Nature at all scales. Atoms, molecules, cells, organisms, individuals, families, teams, organisations, societies, Nations, and Earth are the different scales of the same wholeness. All can thrive and evolve harmoniously together when we discover our own wholeness. This wholeness is the key to our individualisation and uniqueness bringing forth diversity in unity.
Swadharma & Swabhava
There is an inborn purpose, function and way of being for each part in the larger whole of which it is a part. It is the very truth and foundation of its being, its reason for existence. This inborn truth of being and way of being is its Swadharma and Swabahava, it is the key to its unique individuality and evolution towards its own wholeness. This principle of Swadharma and Swabhava is the same for an individual, organisation, community or a Nation and it is the foundation of one’s culture. When you live according to your Swadharma and Swabhava, you will naturally find your wholeness and evolve harmoniously with the larger whole.
Swabhava niyatam karma – Gita
Work according to one’s natural way of being is the starting point of accelerating one’s spiritual evolution through work. It is the path of your destined work, your life purpose.
