Celebration of Gratitude for Eugenio, Crisal and Mario

Fiesta de Prout On Saturday, October 4, 2013, many friends of the PROUT Research Institute of Venezuela gathered to give a warm send-off to long-term community members Eugenio, Cris, and Mario. This lovely family has given selflessly of their time, energy, and resources in their two-and-a-half years at PROUT, and we wanted to celebrate them and their friendship before they head off to Yaracuy for their next project. Twenty-five friends gathered to eat delicious food, laugh and tell stories, including neighbors who participate in daily yoga classes at PROUT, an organizer from AISEC, professors and graduate students from Universidad Nacional Experimental Simón Rodríguez, our organization’s lawyer and his wife, and PROUT residents and volunteers. Cris, Eugenio, and Mario have meant so much to all of us, and we wish them the best in their next adventure. . . . → Read More: Celebration of Gratitude for Eugenio, Crisal and Mario

Our Task Force on the Americas delegation, led by Lisa Sullivan, came to Venezuela to observe the presidential elections in April, 2013. Luckily we stayed at Quinta PROUT in Caracas. The volunteer staff’s hospitality was warm and welcoming, the accommodations comfortable, and the vegetarian food was delicious and varied. Eugenio and his family made us feel like it was our home away from home, adding a personal touch which we loved.

Evaluating the Legacy of President Hugo Chávez Using the Progressive Utilization Theory (Prout)

by Dada Maheshvarananda

Dada Maheshvarananda presenting a copy of his Prout book to President Hugo Chávez on June 1, 2003President Hugo Chávez dedicated his life to the poor people of Venezuela. He transformed their lives and transformed their country.

On March 6, the day after his death, I spent 11 hours waiting with friends to pay my respects as his body was slowly transported through the city. It took much longer than expected, as hundreds of thousands of people filled the streets and the giant stadium where the procession ended to get a glimpse of the passing casket. The crowds sang and clapped along with popular songs about “El Comandante”, shouting: “Chávez lives, the struggle continues!” “The people united will never be defeated!” “I am Chávez!” When the body finally arrived at night in the National Military Academy for viewing, the line of people waiting was more than two kilometers (one mile) long!
