Auroville is not just any place on the planet - it is a consecrated space for the growth of a truer consciousness. For 50 years, starting with barren soil, Auroville has created beauty where before there was none. Much of Auroville’s designated land – the material base for this work and beauty - is missing and at risk of being bought and used for private profit. The future of many missing plots is now up to us - together, we can make a difference!
