50 Poems from Auroville
Aurovilians have always expressed themselves through their work – be it by planting trees, teaching children, or through dance, painting, and literature. Vikas Vickers, who has been connected to Auroville since the early beginning and who was given his name by Mother (Vikas, meaning Progress), has collected 50 of these expressions into a beautiful book of poetry.
Poetry has a central place in many spiritual traditions as a means of conveying the unspeakable inner experience of the seeker. This collection does precisely that – it allows the reader to feel the depth, the pains and the joys of the seeking.
