  • Founded by Japanese Monk, Nichidatsu Fuji (1885-1985), the Nipponzan Monastery at the heart of Kolkata in Lake Place is an ideal place for meditation on the Lotus Sutra, which incidentally is the last teaching of Buddha’s life.
  • The ancient link b/w India and Japan was reinstated after Rabindranath Tagore’s visit to Japan in 1916; the Poet also met Sri Mirra Alfassa in Japan who would later join Sri Aurobindo in Pondicherry.
  • Fuji was very much influenced by the writings of Nichiren and thought of travelling to India, the spiritual birthplace, to invigorate the teachings of Enlightenment. This was a difficult time here in Calcutta when the country was striving for freedom from the British Colonial Rule.
  • Fuji arrived in 1931 and walked the streets near lake place beating his drum and chanting ‘Namu Myoho Renge Kyo’.
  • He met Mahatma Gandhi in 1933 at Wardhah and shared his ideas of compassion and non-violence.
  • Industrialist and philanthropist, Sri Jugal Kishore Birla gave him land to build a monastery in 1935 which is now the Nipponzan Myohoji Buddhist Monastery at 60/1, Kabi Bharati, Kolkata 700029

All objects are the perceiving of them, and the perceiving of them is
what they are. It follows that the perceiving of them is not separate
from the objects, and the objects are not separate from the perceiving
of them.

Therefore, no objects exist as objects, either as phenomena or in noumenon.

APPEARING (FORM) is not an object, but a functioning. It appears as a
objectivisation.

HAPPY 2017 – As we are LINKS in the CHAIN, I open my heart to all of
you so we can walk together to see the great transformation coming to
this world. It will be a higher consciousness of technology that will
enable a sustainable living based on higher ethics and aesthetics.

Love & Peace

Divine Mother at Pondicherry photograph by Henri-Cartier Bresson

It has the latent frequency of the universe

It configures and re-configures itself by an unknown process

Unknown because it cannot pre-empt itself

But it knows how to propel and navigate

Self-contained, it is the BLISS Regulator

The art of Surrender is the Miracle of Miracles

It is the only pre-requisite to be with the Divine

To have the heart’s content in every situation is the indomitable will that makes you free

Pray to the Mother so your embryonic self can connect with the universe

Pray to the Lord in you and the Lord in All

A single word can create the dynamic pathways of the circuit for consummation

That is the Secret of Upanishadic mantras

That is Urandiskhungtat/Tool//Wool/Cool//Pool (*Proximity to the Future can RECREATE THE PAST)

St John’s looks to break into Indian and Chinese B&B market for 2017

As the number of tourists from Asia visiting the historic university city of Cambridge continues to rise, one of its most iconic Colleges is looking to target visitors from both India and China to develop revenues that can help to fund its core work in education and research.

playground

St John’s,  founded in 1511, is one of the largest and best-known Colleges in Cambridge  

Indian and Chinese visitors to Cambridge are being targeted by one of the university city’s most iconic colleges in a bed and breakfast business campaign designed to attract growing numbers of “high value” tourists from Asia.

 

St John’s College was founded in 1511 and is known for producing several of Cambridge University’s Nobel Laureates and numerous other distinguished academics, as well as for its riverside setting and famous “Bridge of Sighs”. Now, the college is hoping that this unique history will prove a draw for its bed and breakfast business for tourists during the summer of 2017.

 

While Cambridge colleges were once strictly private for most of the year and closed off to the general public, the situation has changed dramatically during recent decades. Like many others, St John’s offers a bed and breakfast service while students are away during the long summer vacation, and many rooms are therefore vacant. Rather than staying in a hotel, this gives tourists the chance to enjoy the unique surroundings of a centuries-old college in the heart of one of Britain’s most spectacular cities.

 

Tourism is one of the main ways in which, especially during the summer months, the College generates income which it can invest in its core aims, which are teaching students and supporting world-class research. With numbers of visitors from India and China both on the rise in Cambridge, St John’s is now making a concerted effort to appeal to would-be customers from both of those countries in particular.

 

“The economic growth in both countries means that we are seeing more independent, high-value visitors coming to Cambridge,” Bill Brogan, who is Catering and Conference Manager at St John’s College, said. “Some are business people or visiting academics, but there are also a lot more families who are just interested in seeing a part of the UK outside London. Our thinking is that if you choose a hotel you could be anywhere, while a stay in a Cambridge College is an experience unlike anywhere else.”

 

Cambridge is one of the most popular visitor destinations in the United Kingdom outside of London. According to Visit Britain, the city had approximately 430,000 “staying” visitors in 2015 – an increase on the previous two years.

 

Research by the same organisation also suggests that visits from China and India to the UK overall are on the rise. Between 2014 and 2015 (the latest period for which accurate and complete data is available) it recorded a 45.7% increase in visitors from China, and an 8.47% increase in visitors from India.

 

Brogan estimates that about a fifth of the College’s own Bed and Breakfast custom during 2015 similarly came from those two countries. As a result, the College is now developing existing collaborations in both China and India to promote its bed and breakfast business. Information is being sent to bodies such as the China-Britain Business Council, Air China, the Institute of Hospitality, and several Indian universities, as well as smaller businesses and suppliers with which the College has a relationship, such as Sula Vineyards near Mumbai.

 

Visitors to St John’s are typically drawn by its famous grounds on the River Cam and its architecture, some of which dates back to the Tudor Era, and which also includes the Bridge of Sighs and the superb 19th-century Chapel designed by George Gilbert-Scott. These have provided the backdrop for numerous blockbuster films.

 

Among several other prominent Indians, Dr Manmohan Singh, the country’s former Prime Minister, is a graduate and Honorary Fellow of the College, and was awarded a BA in Economics in 1957. Since 2007, he has given his name to a scholarship programme that enables academically outstanding doctoral students from India to study at St John’s.

 

Noted Chinese alumni include the novelist Louis Cha, who became a Doctor of Philosophy at St John’s at the age of 86 in 2010, and was admitted as an Honorary Fellow of the College in September of that year. A stone, inscribed with a poetic couplet which he composed for the College at the start of his career as a graduate student in 2005, stands in the College’s rose garden. The College is developing strong links with China, not least through exchange programmes and opportunities for Visiting Overseas Scholars to study at the College.

 

The resulting high international profile has made St John’s one of the most popular destinations in Cambridge. During the financial year 2014-15, more than 54,000 tourists visited, generating a £160,000 profit for the College.

 

Bed and breakfast facilities are available at St John’s every summer. For more information, visit: http://www.joh.cam.ac.uk/bed-breakfast.

ART AND MINDFULNESS:EXPRESSION OF THE TRANSCENDENTAL UNITY IN MAN by having a discourse with the Universe

romain-rollande-and-tagore

“Be reverent before the dawning day. Do not think of what will be in a year, or in ten years. Think of to-day.”
― Romain Rolland, Jean Christophe. Vol 1

“We are the music-makers

We are the dreamers of dreams”.

“The individual man must exist for Man the great, and must express him in disinterested works, in science and philosophy, in literature and arts, in service and worship”. (Rabindranath Tagore)

Mother and Sri Aurobindo

Divine Mother and Sri Aurobindo

“But if Art is to reach towards the highest, the Indian tendency must dominate. The spirit is that in which all the rest of the human being reposes, towards which it returns and the final self-revelation of which is the goal of humanity. Man becomes God, and all human activity reaches its highest and noblest when it succeeds in bringing body, heart and mind into touch with spirit. Art can express eternal truth, it is not limited to the expression of form and appearance. So wonderfully has God made the world that a man using a simple combination of lines, an unpretentious harmony of colours, can raise this apparently insignificant medium to suggest absolute and profound truths with a perfection which language labours with difficulty to reach. What Nature is, what God is, what man is can be triumphantly revealed in stone or on canvas.

Behind a few figures, a few trees and rocks the supreme Intelligence, the supreme Imagination, the supreme Energy lurks, acts, feels, is, and, if the artist has the spiritual vision, he can see it and suggest perfectly the great mysterious Life in its manifestations brooding in action, active in thought, energetic in stillness, creative in repose, full of a mastering intention in that which appears blind and unconscious. The great truths of religion, science, metaphysics, life, development, become concrete, emotional, universally intelligible and convincing in the hands of the master of plastic art, and the soul of man, in the stage when it is rising from emotion to intellect, looks, receives the suggestion and is uplifted towards a higher development, a diviner knowledge.”

– Sri Aurobindo, The National Value of Art, 1909

ART IS AN ORGANIC EXPRESSION OF THE TRANSCENDENTAL PERSONALITY OF MAN; IT MIRRORS HIS SOUL THAT EXTENDS TO BECOME THE UNIVERSE AND THE UNIVERSE IS HIM IN ALL ITS LUMINOSITY. THEREFORE, HIGHEST ART IS A SYNERGY BETWEEN MAN AND THE UNIVERSE THAT IS MANIFESTED AS AN EXPERIENCE OF AWARENESS. THE PRIMAL MIND ALONE GIVES BIRTH TO ART, ITS THE STORY OF THE UNIVERSE, ITS THE VIBRATION OF THE COLOURS OF COMPASSION, OF LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP,OF STRUGGLE FOR EXISTENCE WHICH FINALLY CONSUMMATES IN THE BLISSFUL STATE OF ‘ANANDA’ – THIS IS PERHAPS THE INDIA STORY – THE STORY OF MANY LIVES TRANSMUTING INTO ONE, FOREVER AND FOREVER….

Niyeti Chadha, Untitled, 3.5 x 6 inches, Isograph pen and water colour on paper 2015

In the context of South Asia, with histories of colonialism, ethnic divisions, communal tensions,marginalization, border disputes, living indigenous traditions whose needs and demands contest impositions of political power, urbanization, language politics, and centuries of conquests and border fluidity, maps have been imposed upon maps. Such projects are often ‘carto-histories’ or ‘carto- biographies’ written by agents of power. The irony remains that despite attempts at ‘harmonious’assimilation of parts into a whole, maps are instrumental only when inferred in parts. Lived experience of these inscribed spaces present an entirely different vocabulary of social relations, cultural differences

and particularities, unfamiliar landscapes, and even quotidian symptoms of political and diplomatic relations.

Waseem Ahmed, untitled, Pigment colour, Silver leaf on archival Vasli Paper 2015

Waseem Ahmed’s delicate use of the miniature style, explores the politically charged terrain of issues and identity. The works visit myths and anecdotes to critique the current, often media generated, caricaturing of the Islamic identity.

Thisath Thoradeniya, who is based in Sri Lanka, picks up the figure of the joker, who occupies the margins of society and has no ostensible relevance except as an entertainer. Yet his comical acts mirror his context and becomes a narrative of testimony. The joker becomes an appropriate channel for the artist to articulate the anxieties stemming from his own personal experiences. Niyeti Chadha is preoccupied by the transient topographies of urban spaces – ever climbing skylines, buildings under construction and the whir that entwines them. Her abstract works enmesh these various geographies, often hyperbolically, giving primacy to the experience of these landscapes and necessarily
escape fidelity to actual architectural spaces in urban India.
The Gond artist Bhajju Shyam invokes the folklore of his village in Madhya Pradesh in his art, creating a contemporary idiom infused with traditional style and content. As a storyteller, his works capture rural and marginalized histories in a form that is disappearing from mainstream, globalized art contexts.
These works which will be exhibited as part of The India Story (TIS), capture narratives that are alternative to media and political narratives, overturning imposed collective identities within South Asia.

About Latitude 28
Through curated shows, careful strategizing and discovering emerging artists with exciting practices, Latitude 28 over the years has become synonymous with cutting edge art coming out of the country, seeking out fresh perspectives in its attempt to stimulate commercial interest in new waves of art- making. The establishment aims to cultivate a space where collectors and art enthusiasts can interact with younger artists and their practices.It provides a horizontal environment where younger artists are
able to contextualise their work alongside the masters of Indian art, experiment with medium, material and institutional critique. We have supported Kartik Sood, Anindita Dutta, and Shweta Bhattad in their innovative practices, exhibiting them alongside veterans such as Anupam Sud and Baiju Parthan. The gallery collection consequently includes cutting edge contemporary alongside modern masters.
Latitude 28 has been imagined as an incubation space, generating ideas through curatorial projects, site-
specific artworks, artist talks and curated walks. Exhibitions such as ‘In You Is The Illusion Of Each Day’
(curated by Maya Kovskaya, 2011), ‘Slipping Through The Cracks’ (curated by Meera Menezes, 2012),
‘Crossing Over’ (curated by Ambareen Karamat, 2013) and ‘Sacred/Scared’ (curated by Nancy Adajania,
2014) tried to initiate renewed readings of artworks within art historical/socio-political contexts.
Latitude 28 frequently travels to International art fairs, and supports our artists’ presence at biennales
around the world. The gallery has been part of Art Gwangju (2012), Art HK (2013) [solo booth project by
Prajakta Palav], Dhaka Art Summit (2014), and most recently Art Dubai (2015) [solo booth project by
Dilip Chobisa]. Latitude 28 is also committed to generating discourse on contemporary art through
projects that are not-for-profit, interact with the public sphere, and commission research articles and
critical writing from critics, curators and researchers. We also partner with similar initiatives, facilitating
several special projects at the India Art Fair over the years.
This investment in the discursive prompted Latitude 28 to organize TAKE on Writing | Critic-Community:
Contemporary Art Writing in India with TAKE on art (its sister publication), an intensive destination workshop in Goa to cultivate dialogue among peers on art criticism. Most recently, the gallery supported

Ashland India provides science education to disadvantaged children

Partners with Agastya International Foundation for mobile science labs

Mumbai, August 1, 2016 – Ashland Inc. (NYSE: ASH), a global leader in providing specialty chemical solutions to customers in a wide range of consumer and industrial markets, today launched two Mobile Science Labs (MSL) in collaboration with Agastya International Foundation, a non-governmental organization (NGO) that works with financially disadvantaged children through innovative, hands-on science education. The kickoff event held at The Leela Hotel in Mumbai was attended by Ashland leaders and employees, and Agastya representatives who demonstrated their pedagogy through live models. The vans will be operational in and around Ashland India offices in Mumbai and Hyderabad beginning August 5.

MSL is a very powerful and innovative instrument to revolutionize rural education and make education increasingly accessible. It is a catalytic channel that is fun, engaging and interactive, aimed to raise awareness among disadvantaged government school children of the value of learning science. The MSLs travel to remote schools with 100+ hands-on science models covering a wide range of topics in physics, chemistry and biology for Classes 5 through 10. The teaching approach is consistent with India’s National Curriculum Framework and the topics overlap the syllabus of National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT).

There are also experiments not directly correlated to the state syllabus that are intended to spark curiosity and encourage interaction and questions among the children. Children are better able to relate to concepts explained through interactive demonstrations rather than through rote learning. MSLs have been found to be highly effective in delivering large science fairs, and reaching community members through night visits too. Night community visits allow the students’ parents, family and community members to participate in learning sessions about various beneficial topics.

“At Ashland we believe good chemistry is not only about innovative, differentiated science, but also about the way people come together to make a difference,” said Luis Fernandez-Moreno, Ashland senior vice president and president of the Chemicals Group. “With a primary focus on education, the environment and health and human services initiatives, we provide support both financially and through hands-on involvement. We are glad to partner with Agastya for this important community initiative.”

“All companies today want to hire the best talent. Hence, it is also our responsibility to invest in expanding this pool for a sustained future. This partnership with Agastya to bring science in an innovative way to young children is a small step in that direction from Ashland,” said Nelson Corda, general manager, Consumer Specialties, Ashland Specialty Ingredients, Rest of Asia.

Added Sai Chandrasekhar, chief of operations, Agastya International Foundation: “Through the mobile science labs donated by Ashland, we plan to reach out to more than 16,000 students and their teachers. Teachers will be trained with an aim to disseminate knowledge and propagate creative-thinking and problem-solving skills.”

The community involvement plan for Ashland is a blended mix of both financial and engagement support. Employees would be participating in various programs that would require them to use their technical and professionals skills in the arena of social responsibility.

Across the river in an ocean of blissful sky

the kirtan of the mellow sun

Permeates the golden green harvest

A million light years nearer to the Self

In a destiny of boundless love

And a silent embrace endures the pain

THE SACRED BEAUTY OF LIFE IS A HIGH-RESOLUTION MONTAGE OF THE ALMA MATER WORKING THROUGH A CONSCIOUS TECHNOLOGY FOR FURTHER EVOLUTION OF THE ENTIRE-CREATION-ENTIRE

Chandra-Bhaga (Path to Triloknath), 1932 Nicholas Roerich

Path to Triloknath by Nicholas Roerich circa 1932

“Awareness of Beauty saves the world”. Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Brahman is known as ‘Sukrita’, the self-created, the self-made

Parmatma is really the ‘Ananda Himself’

“Above the heavens and below the heavens I am the only honoured one”.

(Sakyamuni Buddha)                                                                  Vsevolod Pudovkin's Storm Over Asia (1928)

Beauty hides in the most simplest of things

An arm of arrow is also the quill of human destiny

Mountains are also rivers when the rock subsides

Skies turn waterfalls into ice in the cold winters of Siberia

Stars are bangles on the back of the tyger wandering like a monk in the wild forests of eternity

They share the same fire of a Tolstoy in the quasi-gravity effect of an over-back mesomoun particle

Silver spring ecstasy is the quartet in c minor of a Stravinsky on mud-ether moon

And as we climb the mountains of fortitude and silence

The physical existence gives birth to multiple self-reflective selves

Language there is the artifice of Nicholas Roerich’s stone from Sirius

Consciousness shall define our human evolution not through chance and probability

But through active endurance of the being learning as it grows like a sapling

Anandamayi Maa

Sri Sri Anandamayi Maa

Technology of the Light-Muscle Verb Act is the mother of all inventions

And as the dog around the tree dances in rhythmic compassion

We know we are the logged woods of a Pudovkin’s montage

That carries in our heart the chalice of Immortality

Neyunkav in the Alpa square Vitruvian man

Reason cannot super cede the divine beauty of all existence

Alma Mater of man is on throat of a gyrating time

Dynamic in the pure silence of an absolute rest

Let friendship be the rule of connecting our minds forever.
