A NEW YEAR IS HERE – A WARM WELCOME TO 2024!
Dear Esteemed friends of Auroville,
Today, 25th December, is Christmas, one of the significant days in human history. The following are the last three messages of the Mother on Christmas.
Hail the new light.
That it may grow in all hearts.
The time has come for the rule of falsehood to end.
In the Truth alone is salvation.
We want to show to the world that man can become a true servitor of the Divine.
Who will collaborate in all sincerity ?
The New Year 2024 is upon us. Auroville, a luminous “pearl” of the unfolding human future, too, is continuing her onward march.
“Auroville…at last a place where one will be able to think only of the future” – reads one of the moving messages of the Mother.
In our New Year 2024 card, we have tried to capture something of the spirit of Auroville with two photographs of its pioneering days. Perhaps these will also serve as a reminder of how far the international township has come, and all the work and commitment that has accomplished such “miracles”. In our card, we have also included the significance of various Hibiscus flowers as given by the Mother which symbolize the many aspects and values for the intended City of Dawn as it continues to develop.
During the year that is ending, several new plots have been acquired to consolidate Auroville’s physical base, both in the designated City area and the Greenbelt. This has been possible thanks to your concern and commitment for Auroville’s bright and harmonious future.
We gratefully acknowledge your contributions as members of the wider Auroville community which knows no borders and, as a token of our sincere appreciation for your collaboration, we are enclosing our annual card with our warmest wishes for the new year ahead.
We thank Auroville Archives for providing the photos, Auroville’s major book publisher PRISMA for designing it, Raju of Auroville Printers for publishing the card, and Satyakam for releasing the card.
Besides this e-version, we will be sending our land donors outside of Auroville a printed copy of our New Year’s card by post.
Here are few points:
If you would not like to receive the card by post, please let us know.
If there is any change in your postal address or email ID, kindly let us know.
If you would like to receive several cards to gift to your friends and colleagues, please let us know, and how many. We will be glad to provide the cards in a larger quantity.
In case you are in Auroville or going to visit in the coming weeks, these cards are available for free at the Town Hall Kiosk, Information Service at the Visitors’ Center, the Unity Pavilion and the two Pour Tous centers (PTDC and PTPS).
Solidarity works – so let us keep up our collective dynamism! By supporting Auroville’s harmonious land consolidation, together we strengthen Auroville’s ability to be an inspiring beacon of hope and light!
With confidence in Auroville’s bright future, our sincere appreciation, and our warmest wishes for a happy, harmonious and enriching 2024!
