Auroville – A City for Human Unity

It is said that are invited to Auroville all men of goodwill, who thirst for progress and aspire to a higher and truer life. Auroville is a young city, inaugurated in 1968 by representatives of 124 countries and 23 Indian states, who placed a handful of earth from their countries in a lotus-shaped urn as a symbol of human unity.

Auroville does not belong to India nor to any other country. It is a universal town that belongs to Humanity. The idea of the city came to The Mother in the 1930s. She met Sri Aurobindo in the early 1900s and immediately recognized him as a guru. Together, they worked to help us evolve our level of consciousness. With the development of the mind, they believed humans could consciously participate in the process of inner discovery and life’s true purpose, not only as an individual but also as a meaningful part of our evolving world.

Thank to Salvador’s Dad, Carlo Carlucci, we decided to visit this universal city and experienced one of the most amazing feelings in the world inside the Matrimandir.

We leave you with this short inspirational quote from The Mother. We hope it helps you in your self-discovery process.

For millennia, we have been developing outer means, outer instruments, outer techniques of living and finally those means and techniques are crushing us. The sign of the new humanity is a reversal in the standpoint, and the understanding that inner knowledge and inner technique can change the world and master it without crushing it.

Auroville is a place where this new way of living is being worked out, it is a centre of accelerated evolution where man must begin to change his world through the power of his inner spirit.
