Auroville is a philosophical township where people from all around the world live in an integrated harmonious way, with a common purpose of realising human unity. Born out of the idea that there should be a place on earth a place which no nation could claim as its own, where all human beings could live freely as citizens of the world. A place of peace; a place where the needs of the spirit and the concern for progress would take precedence over the satisfaction of desires and passions, the search for pleasure and material enjoyment.
Auroville is It is the site of material and spiritual researches for a living embodiment of an actual human unity, Auroville is the home of an unending education, of constant progress, and Youthfulness that never ages.
