This August 15th inaugurates the year commemorating Sri Aurobindo’s birth 150 years ago. To initiate this special year, we asked members of Auroville and of Auroville International to share their favorite inspiring quotes from Sri Aurobindo’s writings. Not surprisingly, many of their choices have been taken from “The Human Cycle” and “The Ideal of Human Unity”, but also from “Thoughts & Aphorisms”, “Savitri” and his other poetic writings. We thank the many contributors to this rich collection of inspiration!

From a certain perspective, we, humanity as a whole, constitute a crew within a “Spaceship Earth” that's flying to a distant goal. What goal could that be? 111 years ago, in 1910, an exceptional "crew member" - a man of destiny - came to an unknown corner of Spaceship Earth called Pondicherry in South India. His name was Sri Aurobindo and he came under what he once termed as “sailing orders”. Over the next four decades, he explored and explained the secrets and keys that throw light on the journey’s goal. ... Version française en pdf. ... பிடிஎஃப்பில் தமிழ்ப் பதிப்பு

Few people realize the enormity of the work of Auroville’s Land Board. A small team of Aurovilians has the mandate for leading, organizing, and managing all of Auroville’s land protection and land purchase actions, supported by several teams working in various areas. In recognition of this immense responsibility, we are dedicating a series of articles to their work. In this first installment, we focus on what the Land Board’s mandate involves, as well as the considerable achievements made in the past 3 years.
Since our last announcement, Auroville has added 19.09 new consolidating acres in five Greenbelt areas, all funded by your donations! We thank all you donors who made these purchases possible and congratulate the Land Board for these achievements. Our sincere appreciation goes to the land owners whose goodwill made these purchases happen in such a harmonious spirit. May we continue to manifest together the City of Dawn!
