Under Reconstruction - Coming soon!

On Feb.28, 1968, about 4,500 people came to the desolate and barren plateau in South India, to celebrated the Inaugural Foundation of the world’s first volunteer, international township. Founder, Mira Alfassa, read allowed the Charter of Auroville that she wrote.


Auroville belongs to no one in particular. Auroville belongs to humanity as-a-whole. But, to live in Auroville, one must be a willing servitor of the Divine Consciousness.

Auroville will be the place of an unending education, of constant progress, and a youth that never ages.

Auroville wants to be the bridge between the past and the future. Taking advantage of all discoveries from without and from within, Auroville will boldly spring towards future realizations.

Auroville will be a site of material and spiritual researches for a living embodiment of an actual human unity.

This lotus marble urn was filled, one by one, with the Earth representing each nation in UNESCO at that time. Once the earth was contained as One, the Charter was sealed within it.
