21 Visitors Centre units and Marathon Market participants contributed proceeds from their sales on Marathon weekend to benefit Auroville’s land. The VC restaurants and eateries maintained their solidarity action for the entire month with inspiring cards encouraging land donations on the eatery tables
Auroville's second annual Art for Land auction took place on Febuary 25th after a month-long exhibition of creativity, beauty, fundraising events, & generosity. The action was capped by a joyous closing ceremony on the 28th: "Coming Together for Auroville's Land!"
The "Auroville Lands Information Kiosk" set up at the Visitors Centre for Marathon Weekend was a great success! Now a permanent VC feature, it shows the film "Landing Auroville" every 7 minutes.
Anchored in Matter, Auroville is non-separable from its land. Today, securing Auroville’s still-missing land is the urgent need. Since we can all see this need around us, we must all unite and act! As Sri Aurobindo wrote: “If you merely wait for things to happen, there is no reason why they should happen at all”
February is a special month for Auroville and for the new creation upon earth. It was in this month, on the 21st in 1878, that the Mother was born; in this month, on the 29th in 1956, the universal descent of the supramental force took place; and again in this month, on the 28th in 1968, Auroville was founded.
Your solidarity for the City of Dawn's still-missing land is warmly appreciated! Via the attached inspiring card, we send our thanks to so many friends and supporters. Together and united, our action can grow wider and stronger in 2017!! Wishing you all a happy & luminous 2017 - it's Auroville’s 49th year! To receive a card: email@example.com
“The true spirit of Auroville is collaboration and must be more and more so. True collaboration paves the way to divinity.” These words of the Mother are relevant for us all – for those of us who live in Auroville, or are associated from a distance. Collaboration is built on essential pillars, of which Gratitude is one - gratitude for being able to serve a vision that leads to a better and nobler life for all.
November 24th 1926 was the date of Sri Aurobindo’s great siddhi or realization, opening the gates to a greater, spiritualized consciousness for Humanity and the promise of Spirit and Matter in harmony. Auroville is the designated place for pioneering Sri Aurobindo’s great vision, flowering step-by-inspiring step. But one step is still needed – completing its material body with urgently-needed land.
