Dreamlike atmosphere at the entrance of the new school area

The entrance of the new school area – very advanced now – looks as beautiful as a fairy tale illustration – a source of inspiration for all the people passing by or going inside. Within the last weeks building works were realized at a small multipurpose house and at a storage hall for clay bricks. The production of bricks is very meaningful – economically and ecologically regarded and as well for creating jobs in the poor and unemployed Mudigubba area. All the further buildings on the school area are planned to be built with self made clay bricks only. The hall has to be big enough for a sufficient amount of clay bricks to be prepared permanently; 5000 big clay bricks can be stored - four weeks drying in the shadow guarantees the high strength and resistance. Our Shanti Ananda Education Society will give the knowledge to the people of Mudigubba for enabling them to build in an ecological and low cost mood as well. The selling of bricks is planned to be a permanent income source for our school project. By preparing 5000 bricks monthly and selling them for 15 – 17 Rupees each we might achieve an income of approximately 40.000 Rupees per month covering the fixed costs of the school. Confidently we are thinking this self help project will be realized very soon.

Many heavy rainfalls – very unusual in this area known as a drought area - made the progress very difficult for the building team in the month of November; but the progress nevertheless can be recognized very clearly.

The clay bricks exposed in the Sustainable Living Centre, Puttaparthy, (http://www.ecosustainable.com.au/) have been put into the water for a period of five years – as a test for the material – and look as if recently coming out of the machine. This very high resistance can be explained by the fact that the brick machine puts high pressure onto the material; furthermore 5 % white cement approximately is included. Six or seven workers can produce more than 1000 bricks daily with the help of this machine which will be given to us for a small fee. The clay first has to be analyzed for achieving the best possible mixture of materials to be given into the brick machine. Project manager Horst Wagner will receive the needed know how in January 2011 in Auroville, Tamil Nadu (http://www.earth-auroville.com/).

Now let’s come to the activities in the school: On the last Nature Day the students and the teachers made an excursion to a Shiva temple located on a hill behind the new school area. The way was very beautiful passing by the full water tank before climbing up the hill (Shiva temples mostly are located on top of hills or mountains because Shiva’s place is in the Himalayas). At the designated place a pooja was celebrated; and afterwards a picnic took place in the enchantingly charming landscape – very green in the moment because of the redundant rain falls.

The children enjoy the picnic with a beautiful view into the greenery

Way back passing by the water tank – very full the first time since 7 years!

The Nature Day – meant mainly for the elder students of the classes 5 and 6 - takes place always when our doctor comes (for more than two years one time monthly) to examine the students. In the morning some „nature activities“ are performed for creating a good connection with the new school area and with Mother Nature; and in the afternoon all the students are examined and receive some medicine if needed. This program is working very nicely.

Linda Whitaker – active at our school as a teacher trainer since 2008 – was the leader of our first Games‘Day on December 8th.

Meditation circle before starting with the Games‘Day

The main aim of the day was to introduce some new indoor games. Linda first asked the teachers to think over for which age group the games might be used and which skills could be trained with the games.

In the morning the teachers were busy with the games intensively; in the afternoon the elder students of the classes 5 and 6 were integrated as well.

Raja Sekhar and students experiencing the domino game

Definitely all the involved persons should think over or try how to use these games – and not only „obey“ the user’s manual. In this way very creative new ideas were generated; for example M. Saraswathi had the inspiration to teach fracture calculation with the domino game; Jayalakshmi will use the game in mathematics for ratio calculation as well. All the members had a lot of fun and joy practising the Games’ Day and said that it was a big success. Head mistress Sabitha reported very enthusiastically – representing all the teachers – that they had learnt a lot during this very special day.

The mechanic game is well liked by everybody

The press photo of the German chancellor Angela Merkel and the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was published in the Deccan Chronicle, a supra regional newspaper, of December 13th. The newspaper reports that Germany and India want to cooperate concerning the education more than before.

Angela Merkel and Manmohan Singh

The new Chief Minister of the State Andhra Pradesh, Kiran, said that the education failed and that it is necessary to start once again from the very beginning. He announced that his main work will be to improve the education for enabling the country to be successful; he stressed new inspirations to be needed desperately. His vision and the planned cooperation of Germany and India concerning education to be strengthened might let us hope for more quality and creativity definitely. Model schools - like the Shanti Ananda School – are very trendy because a value oriented and nature friendly education for head, heart and hands is an inspiration for the complete education sector; model schools can realize this new strategy actively and are very meaningful for putting forth innovative creative accents. However, India and Andhra Pradesh and as well most of the 25 other states have to shoulder a lot of work if they really want to improve the miserable situation of the momentary education in a sustainable way.

I wish you a Happy Christmas and a good start into the Year 2011!

With cordial greetings from South India!

Yours, Helga Shanti Fründt

The new gate – view from the school area

On September 29th the long expected iron main gate was set up – this wonderful piece of art with a Merkhaba (star tetrahedron) in the centre is visible already from some distance – clearly to be identified as the symbol or landmark of the school. In the weeks after it was integrated into octagon towers – but these works were very difficult because of special circumstances. In October heavy rain falls and a motor bike accident of project manager Horst Wagner - which put him out of action temporarily – wrecked our timing schedule. In November a cyclone of an unusually big dimension again brought heavy rain falls – causing damage and high water in Andhra Pradesh and in the neighbour states Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Such a climate is very extraordinary, especially in this non monsoon season; the rain water missing in the past years now comes down too fast and in too big amounts…

On 20th October 2010 – a very auspicious date – we drilled a bore well in the west of the school area; in 3 meters depth only we found water with an amount of approximately 3000 litres/day (good drinking water, but not sufficient for the plantation of the area). So it might be necessary to drill once again to fulfil our needs. In the moment a new water tank is built very near to the school area for the inhabitants of Mudigubba; we will be able to use this water for drinking purpose as well. A connection to the watchman– and multipurpose house which fundament was built already is planned.

In the school we missed some days because of the heavy rain falls; in our tiny fresh air class rooms it is not possible to have normal teachings with such weather conditions – the students know this and don’t come to the school… So the teachers had the opportunity to be busy with some other topics, for example with the reports of the parents’ visits or as well with the preparation of our next project week planned as a science fair. Because of a generous donation some desperately needed books – for instance encyclopaedia (very important for the preparation of the project week) and pedagogically valuable kinder garden materials as well as some special games for the elder students could be purchased. For the introduction of the new materials into the school life we plan to conduct an „indoor games day“ after some time. A „Maintenance Day“ is planned as well; we think that it is pedagogically very meaningful students learning to care for, repair and maintain the items they are using every day. Maintenance is a critical point in India very often – curtains in hotels are not washed properly, public buildings are not painted, roads are not repaired, and garbage can be found nearly everywhere…

In October during the Dassara holidays (Dassara is a nine days’ festival to honour the divine mother - Lakshmi, Saraswathi, Durga und Kali) our annual teacher training took place. On five days we had a music workshop led by Horst Wagner, a kinder garden workshop led by me, an excursion to the RishiValley School near Madanapalle (www.rishivalley.org )– started by Krishnamurthy (nowadays it counts more than 75 years of very successful experience), a deeper activity with the speech of Red Indian tribal Chief Seattle (see attachment) and the structural planning of the next project week led by Linda Whitaker.

Head mistress Sabitha informs about necessary changes in the teaching periods

On the last day of the teacher training head mistress Sabitha gave impulses and inspirations for necessary changes in the teaching period creation. If we want to be a “Creative Nature School” the school and of the school area should be created in an ecologically inspired and sustainable way; the teaching periods should be vivid and inspiring according to the nature of the students; the teaching aids and materials should be natural or nature made as far as possible, the periods should take place outside in the nature if possible. Our teachers learnt a lot of skills and knowledge in some numbers of workshops and practise a much better teaching style than usual at Indian schools. Nevertheless we can improve our teaching style even more to earn the name “Creative Nature School” proudly and servedly.

Because of this reason we have a new special conference for the teachers - the „Pedagogical Progress Meeting“ - to discuss and arrange the changes mentioned above under the leadership of head mistress Sabitha as Pedagogical Advisor. It will take place every two months alternating with the „Creativity Progress Meeting“ (Creativity Advisor: A. Saraswathi); this meeting is planned to discuss, evaluate and improve the quality of the creativity lessons offered in the afternoon. Furthermore one time monthly an „Organisational Meeting“ is arranged for all the persons in the school for sharing with each other’s and implementing necessary changes. On the leader’s level one time monthly we have the Managing Committee Meeting (head mistress, coordinator, project manager and project director). Every Saturday under the leadership of the head mistress the teachers share their teaching experiences in the week before. Furthermore we have society meetings every few months because most of the teachers are members with special functions in our Shanti Ananda Educational Society. As soon as the society receives the FCRA (Foreign Contribution Regulation Account) we will have to arrange some changes… All these meetings are necessary to guarantee a special quality standard and the needed communication as well. Because we are an all day school it is not possible to have these meetings in the evening; they have to be arranged within the normal school timings. The students are busy with special works and materials in these times.

These colourful cups were made by the students on their own

Thanks to the service of Andreas Marloth I can send the newsletters now as a printable PDF file; (see attachment). Furthermore you can find the famous speech of the Red Indian Tribal Chief Seattle to the President of the United States in the year 1855 in the attachment; the speech is very remarkable and worth to be thought about.

With cordial greetings from South India!

Yours, Helga Shanti Fründt

School area diagram designed by Horst Wagner

This very beautiful school area diagram illustrates the status of our momentary planning. You can nicely see the arrangement of the octagon shaped class rooms within a left turning spiral form (Mother Nature selected for her creatures this version mostly). An administration building - in an octagon shape as well - and a multipurpose hall (not yet defined concerning the shape) as well as octagonal small guest houses complete our buildings. In the western part of the area (right side of the plan) three wind wheels (Savonius rotors?) are planned to be arranged, eventually in combination with solar elements. Our area is very windy; so we should use this sustainable energy for the production of “own” electricity. The selling of “home made” electricity could become an income source for the school. A small path around the area is surrounded by trees. Vegetables and grains are planned to be grown up; as well we like some perma culture. This plan is not yet definitive because teachers and students are participating in the planning; may be some changes might take place later on…

Group discussion about the school area plan

Once in the month we arrange a “Nature Day” for the planning and activation of the new school area. Teachers and the elder students of the 5th and the 6th class participate in this event together. On the Nature Day in August the school area plan was distributed as a copy and coloured by the participants; later they discussed in small groups. Everybody presented the nicely coloured plan to the meeting; questions, doubts and new points of view were forwarded. In the afternoon teachers, project manager, coordinator and I went to the new school area. With the help of a measurement tape the centre of the spiral – where the class rooms should be built around – was found; we buried a SreeYantram on a copper plate (a very powerful energetic symbol) in the ground and celebrated a pooja (spiritual ritual).Mother Earth answered with a heavy rain fall which was accepted by us as a confirmation for our positive activities. Interestingly rain had fallen in Mudigubba two times within the last weeks – the first time when Botida (Florian Meyer) had found the place for our bore well and the second time on this special occasion…

Place in a kinder garden in Auroville (Tamil Nadu)

 

Very soon the centre of the spiral mentioned above might look similar to this place: a big tree is planned to be planted here; and a Saraswathi temple should join (Saraswathi is the goddess of education and of arts).

Taking measurement on the new school area

These measurement activities took place within the creativity periods in the afternoon. Activities like these will be extended when we shift to the new area. But already now the students are busy with the planning intensively; on Independence Day on August 15th for example a painting competition was held for the colouring of the main gate design. Here you can have a look to the very beautiful results:

Creative students‘ ideas concerning the coloration of the main gate

 

 

The main gate with a star tetrahedron in the centre (Merkhaba) was designed by Horst Wagner on the base of the number 9. This number is a special one; for example the result of a multiplication with any number will always be a 9 again. This number is symbol of completion as well; some people call it a divine number. The Merkhaba – our light/ energy body is consisting of two tetrahedrons fit into each others; the main gate of the school area is presenting it as a combination of two triangles. You can find some information about the Merkhaba and the holy geometry in the book “The flower of life” of Drunvalo Melchizedek and on: http://www.crystalinks.com/merkaba.html.

The Merkhaba is the centre of the Main Gate

The fabrication of the gate takes more time than for a „normal“ gate because all the elements base on the number 9. That means a most detailed work - sometimes with millimetres… For the welding of the centre part only, the Merkhaba, our welder needed two days. At the beginning he did not feel like doing this difficult work; and he rejected this job. After intensive encouragement by Chandra Mohan at least he confirmed – and the result is very presentable…

The gate work shows progress…

The pillars for fixing the main gate will be in an octagon shape; because of this all the stones need a suitable size. Every stone has to be cut by hand requiring a most accurate work. It was very difficult to find a craft man working as precisely as needed. Happily coordinator Chandra Mohan found this stone cutter – he is handicapped – satisfying our wishes. But of course it takes some time…

Our stone cutter doing his job

In the Sustainable Living Centre (www.ecosustainable.net) which isspreading valuable information concerning sustainable energy in Puttaparthy and the surroundings – for some time a poster of the Shanti Ananda E. M. School is located informing about our activities and presenting our actual planning. It is designed to inspire exchange of technologies as well; and it might bring some new donors. Mario, the leader of the centre, promised that we can use the brick machine for our buildings. With this tool the fabrication of clay bricks (including 5% cement) will be very easy; 40 different forms can be produced.(www.earth-auroville.com).

Information poster in the Sustainable Living Centre, Puttaparthy

We are well known as a model school meanwhile giving a good example to other schools as well. Our students learn with head, heart and hands with education in human values as the core. Besides the subjects Telugu (language in Andhra Pradesh), Hindi, English, Mathematics, Science and Social Science we teach painting, handicrafts, games, computer work, stories and theatre playing and as well the classical Indian disciplines yoga, meditation and singing Bhajans. The quality of our teachings is improved continuously by regular and intensive teacher trainings; team work is very important for us; regular special meetings are standard. Mediation and training of skills to treat the earth with responsibility and love takes an increasing place. Our special is an eco sustainable arrangement with education in human values in combination with three languages (English as focus) and a broad creativity spectrum including classical Indian disciplines. This special combination at the Shanti Ananda E. M. School is unique in the whole Anantapur district.

Did the SreeYantram cause the rain?

I want to request you very heartily for more donations. Our nature school in development later will have some income – when it is completed. But in moment urgently we need more regular incoming funds to cover our increasing expenditures. A better education needs more funds; better qualified teachers request more money. Please give me information concerning persons and institutions which might be interested to support our very special school project as well. Thank you very much!

With cordial greetings from South India,

Yours, Helga Shanti Fründt

Shanti Ananda newsletter 7/2010

All our eight teachers are very eager to give nature like, creative and vivid teachings to our students – also now in our „old“ school. In this newsletter I want to present to you some momentary impressions of the daily life in the Shanti Ananda School. On the last „Nature Day“ in September the students of the 5th and the 6th class developed visions for the daily life in the new nature school going to be built. In four small groups (each including two teachers and four to six students) they worked with methods chosen by them. It was fascinating how much creativity and enthusiasm was expressed by these groups presenting the results – after only one hour of preparation.

The first group presented small pantomimic scenes and integrated the spectators into their activities as well.

Swimming, hopping and other sportive activities

The second group painted pictures of the daily life in the nature school; and the third group wrote a story. In this story an essential part in the daily life of the nature school was the care for the animals and the duty to bring sick animals to the animals’ hospital. In the moment a small sick dog is hanging around on the railway area - where we use to have our outdoor teachings - together with other wild dogs. In India nobody cares for these animals; normally they are left to their fate…

Outdoor teachings in the kinder garden

The meeting of children and teachers took the decision to bring the small sick dog to the government animals‘hospital for treatment. It takes one rupee only; the medicine is given for free. Mounika, a student of the 4th class, who has been in the hospital already with her pet dog, was willing to take it there together with three other students. With this decision we went a huge step towards an active sympathy and practical realization of human values. Besides, on the area opposite to our new school area – on the other side of the road – an old age home is planned to be built – a good opportunity for the students to do some service to these people later. For the old people as well this could be an opportunity to contact children and to share some time with them.

The fourth group presented their vision with a song and movements and created a new school song like this…

Presentation of the song about the daily life vision in the nature school

 

The elder daughter of teacher Munemma was suffering of dengue fever which is caused mainly by mosquitoes. Unhygienic circumstances in the environment are the main reason for this disease. The girl had to be taken into the hospital and was in need of blood transfusions. Teacher Raja Sekhar donated blood for her – an excellent and exemplary behaviour. There are blood banks in India as well; but the stored blood is used for the very urgent cases only. The relatives of the less urgent cases have to organize blood conserves by themselves.

Teacher Jayalakshmi made up a small garden together with the students beside the school building wall. Different plants are grown up planned to be shifted to the new school area as soon as a water connection will be present. The compost prepared in the compost pit by the students was used for these vegetables, flowers and trees. The students of the 6th class are responsible for the garden; and they take this duty with a lot of enthusiasm.

Self-grown plants make the children happy

The Red Indian Tribal Chief Seattle held a speech in 1855 to the President of the United States of America - Franklin Pierce - who wanted to buy the land of the Red Indian people. With this speech only we could justify the building up of a nature school; and we are supposed to concern with it in our next teacher training in October.

"How is it possible to buy or to sell the sky – or the warmth of the earth? This type of thinking seems strange to us. If we do not possess the fresh air or the glistening water – how can you buy them from us? ... Every part of the earth is holy to my people. We are a part of the earth, and the earth is a part of us. The smelling flowers are our sisters; the deers, the horse, the big eagle are our brothers. The rocky heights, the juicy meadows, the body warmth of the pony – and of man – they all belong to the same family… We know that the white man does not understand our nature. One part of the land is same to him as any other part because he is a stranger coming in the night and taking from the earth whatever he needs. The earth is not his brother, but his enemy, and after conquering her he marches on. He leaves the graves of his fathers behind and doesn’t care for them. He is stealing the earth from his children and doesn’t care. His fathers’ graves and the birth right of his children are forgotten. He is treating his mother, the earth, and his brother, the sky, like things for buying and plundering, for selling like sheep or glittering beads. His hunger will swallow the earth and leave nothing behind but a desertThe Earth is our mother. What happens to the earth will happen as well to the children of the earth… the earth doesn’t belong to man, but man belongs to the earth – this we know.

The daily life in the kinder garden became more varied and interesting; and the small children spend a lot of time outside in front of the school what is very meaningful. But because of the climate it is not possible to have outdoor teachings all the time; and to sit in our narrow class rooms is not only beneficial… Our kinder garden materials are not at all sufficient to guarantee a satisfying daily life for our smallest children – because of this we are very thankful for donations; we are in a need for pedagogically valuable materials.

Kinder garden children „write “with stones

 

One time weekly the kinder garden children practise yoga – inspired by the workshop of the two German teachers Andrea and Angelika in April. The children are very happy about this daily life enrichment; the kinder garden teachers Anasuya and Munemma as well discovered the benefits of yoga for themselves…

Teacher Anasuya is teaching yoga

 

Every morning the students collect the waste material on the area around the school and put the organic materials into the compost pit and the other materials into the dust bin. After the first bell Prayer and Oath are done; all the students gather in front of the school building – usual in whole India. Afterwards the elder children meditate in the temple room and the kinder garden children in their class rooms. The small children have shorter periods for meditation alternating with body movements.

Meditation with concentration onto the third eye of the partner

Of course music is a part of the daily life as well. In the last years Klaus Premananda offered several Bhajan workshops and gave an exact instruction how to sing Bhajans with his „Bhajan-Tutor” – a DVD with a collection of popular Bhajans.

Head mistress Sabitha playing the flute

Horst Wagner, our project manager for the new school area, is offering music teachings additionally by giving advice to the teachers how to play music instruments.Botida, Florian Meyer (see Newsletter 5/2010) enabled us to buy some music instruments with the help of a donation for this special purpose.

With cordial greetings from South India,

Yours, Helga Shanti Fründt

Shanti Ananda newsletter 5/2010

A ceremonial fire is prepared on the new school area

On July 26thBotida(Florian Meyer)who wrote this newsletter together with me - realized a Yagna ceremony on the new school area. A yagna or ceremonial fire for the transforming cleaning and energetic charging is practised in India and all over the world in many religions (like the Eastern fire in the Christian religion). With this ritual teachers and students took the area into their responsible possession. It was New Moon day which augured well to us. Botida explained to us that the mind power is dimmed on this day meaning that the human beings can open more easily for higher impulses and for the inner world.

Botida is going for water

Botida is a specialist for very subtle energies. One week before with his rod he found a place in the western part of the area where we will bore our well. At this place the water seems to be present in a depth of 20 meters approximately. If the out coming amount of water is not sufficient for our needs we have to bore more deeply - down to the ground water level expected in a depth of 300 feet approximately.

The teachers explore the area

While preparing the yagna some scorpions were discovered – they love to lie under stones; and we needed stones for erecting the protection wall of the ritual fire. So it happened that one scorpion was killed. That didn’t augur well on such a special day; and we prayed together and thought over (using the scorpion’s death as a potential for reflecting our lives for the benefit of future generations as well) how to keep quiet in a situation like this and how to practise an evasive or resettlement action (which has to be safe for both sides) eventually later. Some of the participants felt that the scorpion could become our protecting animal

In the scorpion’s tail the spiral – we selected it as the central form for our architectural planning – is to be seen again. May be some design elements of the scorpion (an arthropod) can be used for the architecture of our area. In each case the scorpion is a symbol for transformation occurring in many forms on this very special day.

Prayer to Mother Earth

 

Oh Mother Earth,

 

Oh Mother Earth, in your lap we live our lives

and die our deaths.

On your body we have our joys and our pains as well.

You are a very old home of us;

we appreciate you and love you forever.

We want to transform you

into a pure planet of our dreams,

We want to transform you into a planet

where all the creatures have the same value.

We want to transform you into a lovely and soft goddess,

And we embrace you, Mother Earth, with all our love.

You are the ground nourishing us and caring for us.

We want to transform you

into fertile fields of peace, bliss and happiness.

We pray that joy and freedom with millions of sweet smells

may fill our hearts and our souls.

 

Oh Amma! Oh Amma! Oh Amma!

 

The teachers feel the energetic quality of bananas

One week before in a workshopBotida trained the teachers and the elder students to test and examine the energy and quality of food articles. Especially in India most of the farmers handle pesticides and artificial fertilizers in a less attentive way (for the benefit of big groups of companies and as well because of ignorance). Nowadays more than 50 % of the soils in Anantapur District are no more suitable for the agriculture because of detoxification. As long as organic food is hardly available it is very important for the people to receive at least halfway acceptable „normal“ food (until organisational structures are created with Botida’s technologies to heal the polluted soils energetically). Botida is busy for some tens of years

on the one hand with the research of energetically transformative (healing and consciousness widening) natural processes and their universal meaning for the immune system of the earth (ofurban and agricultural spaces and of lakes, rivers etc.), beings and of the cosmos (this could become very important in our future nature school especially together with the agricultural experiences for the spreading of technological knowledge towards the farmers and the rural inhabitants)

and on the other hand with the concrete (energetic nature adequate) architectural, engineering - like medical and environmental – technical realization, transferring and ethical - humanitarian – social usage.

In 23 years of sometimes hard research times Botida found out not only that – well known for us – the traditional Indian Ragas, Mantras, Bhajans as well as religious ritual ceremonies and prayers imply, initiate and promote very effective powers and mediums for the energetic transformation (of our inner soul and of the environmental healing),

but also that the „OM – AUM – Omega – MEGA–OM“ besides the SA– Frequency of the Earth Year (with 136.1 Hz - a Cis basing on the A with 108 Hz) corresponds with a special life supporting „Transformative Whirl Structure“ very important for the immune system of the Earth – an AUM whirl structure containing and enclosing all the aspects of SRI GANESHA as well as of SUBRAHMANYAM energetically. This can be used for the deeper understanding of nature phenomena (whirl processes in the body and in lakes and rivers, the wind playing with plants and leaves, cloud whirls and storms) and technologically for the development of future nature system identical technologies (supporting the Earth in her self healing process) like water tubes, turbines, generators, high water prevention systems, aeroplanes, ships, cars and trains as well as for the nano and for the electro technology (like in the medicine machines for dialyse, diagnosis, treatment and therapy). These technologies reflect the inner spiritual reality of our lives and of the cosmos; they are – most interestingly – exactly contradictory to our momentary current usage technologies.

 

Within the years very interesting health and growth supporting results were achieved (as well by restructuring and healing big areas and by treating single fields). Botida wants to realize these results together with the developments mentioned above in his own technical engineering company and together with a growing ethical and ecological network community.

Children’s picture showing the vision of a new school

This picture was painted by students of the 5th class reflecting the vision of a new school; class rooms, a flower garden, trees, a gate and the Indian flag besides other subjects were painted. Botida explained to us that – energetically regarded – the picture implies very positive elements. The arch way shape means an antibacterial and life supporting terrestrial golden point looming into the sky as a subtle energy column. The square shaped gate symbolizes Dharma (right conduct and good behaviour). A vertical square symbolizes the static quality and a diagonal square the dynamic quality of Dharma or the Divine Order. The octagon combines both aspects; because of this it is energetically high graded. (Our new class rooms are planned to be built in octagon shape). The shape of the trees shows as well that they are growing on top of golden points coming out of Yagna and Agni-Hotra ceremonial fires and others; they are a symbol for the healing process of the Earth and for vitality.

The picture is vibrating of joie de vivre, blaze of colours and abundance. It shows to us the consciousness of an own cultural heritage as well as a positive future for the own lives, the nature, the society and for India as a nation…

A red Indian song for Mother Earth is sung by the students

Before we went to the new school area we trained on the “old” area a Red Indian song for Mother Earth; boys and girls sang it in a canon. It was a powerful experience also combined with movements later. The children enjoyed the musical interlude as a school community very much.

Goate leno lenomaote, Hayana, hayana, hayana.

 

We are one with the infinite sun forever, forever, forever.

Raja Sekhar (Meditation teacher, English Coach and treasurer) and Botida enjoy the fruits energized by mantram prayers

 

Botida in his Workshop on July 19th focused on experiences of energy and aura and the deep internal perception of material and subtle world (concerning our lives and resulting environmental consequences) as a Manifestation of the maternal divine aspect and of the divine enclosing love. The aura of a big tree can be felt and experienced in a distance of 450 meters (we felt the aura of the young Neem tree behind the school building). Mudras (holy finger positions) besides their preventive health care are also very helpful for the feeling of subtle energies.

Our bodies – on the subtle level more or less polluted – like the complete organism Cosmos can be cleaned (Botida showed us some techniques), brought into balance and recharged – leading into an auspicious future - by the eternal original prayer “AUM – the Divine Light“ and by correspondingMantras (as well by the connectedOM – whirl structures)

 

With cordial greetings from South India

Yours, Helga Shanti Fründt
