We have mentioned Auroville in our prior blog ‘Tempting Tamil Nadu’, here we explore a little further.
Auroville is the first and only internationally recognized ongoing experiment in human unity and transformation of consciousness.
Found in South India, in the state of Tamil Nadu (not far from the Coromandel coast),
Auroville has a small charter, which outlines their goals and philosophies.
Basically these are –
1. “Auroville belongs to nobody in particular”. The people are to live in unity and must be willing servitors of the Divine Consciouness.
2. Auroville will be a place of “unending education”, of constant growth and progression.
3. By looking in to the past and also in to the future one can learn more and move more confidently towards future realisations.
4.“Auroville will be a site of material and spiritual research for a living embodiment of an actual Human Unity”.
So by now you might be wondering exactly what Auroville is! Well it’s a small township made up of about 2100 residents from all corners of the world (and the population is growing). The conception of Auroville came to the ‘Mother’ in the 1930’s but only became a reality in the ’60’s. The Mother, Mirra Alfassa, was a spiritual collaborator of Sri Aurobindo, with whom she founded the ‘Sri Aurobindo Ashram’. Sri Aurobindo’s vision was the evolution of human life into a life divine.
“Auroville wants to be a universal town where men and women of all countries are able to live in peace and progressive harmony above all creeds, all politics and all nationalities. The purpose of Auroville is to realise human unity.” The residents of Auroville also prioritise and practice sustainable methods of living.Our tour the ‘Heart of South India’ will introduce you to this fascinating place.
