Earth needs a place where men can live away from all national rivalries, social conventions, self-contradictory moralities and contending religions; a place where human beings, freed from all slavery to the past, can devote themselves wholly to the discovery and practice of the Divine Consciousness that is seeking to manifest. Auroville wants to be this place and offers itself to all who aspire to live the Truth of tomorrow. (The Mother on Auroville, p.1, 20/9/1969)
Auroville is an intentional community in the south of India. Established in 1968, it is an experimental township; blending spirituality and technology together in a myriad of ways.
