A Living Story of Organic, Sustainable Agriculture in Tamil Nadu, India.
A few days before the inauguration of Auroville, the Mother “perched on a low stool and armed with a huge black felt-pen” started writing the Auroville Charter. A unique document in earth's history, it has given a new challenge to the human spirit - and the challenge of building a unique universal town for this unique, visionary charter.
Throughout history, attempts have been made to create a new model for human life. Most have proved to be short-lived or limited in scope. But Auroville - The Mother’s City of Dawn – has stood the test of time, continuing to grow with richness and vibrancy. In this 50th year, we salute Auroville and remember The Mother’s wish for the land, Auroville's material body!
