Steven Johnston

Steven came to the Sri Aurobindo Ashram at age five and studied at the Sri Aurobindo International Centre for Education for five years. While living in the Ashram, Nolini-da gave

him the name “Stota”, meaning one who chants the mantra. Later he came to live in Auroville, which he had discovered as his heartfelt true home. Steven enjoyed studying languages and was fluent in several. He also studied pottery and was a fine creator of artistic ceramics. His greatest love was for trees and the afforestation work in Auroville. One day, looking over an Auroville grove, he said admiringly, “The trees all look different to you when you know their names.”
