Join us in an exploration of the International township of Auroville, an experimental city in Southern India created to realize what is possible when people live together in a community beyond the boundaries of nation, religion, race, politics, money – all that separates and divides. Here, citizens from 40 nations attempt to live lives of selfless service, dedicated to the pursuit of human unity. Transformed from an arid barren desert land, into flourishing forest and a conscious city supported by UNESCO and the Govt. of India, Auroville will is a unique place – an experiment in Human Unity.
A guided Journey into Auroville. A rare insight into the community and how they live and become part of an endeavour to transform human consciousness and establish human unity. Meet some extraordinary yogis, researchers, inventors and artists from across the world and explore how they are working in harmony with nature, to create a better future and a model for the rest of the world.
Experience he the Rich Indian spiritual and material culture. Immerse yourself in a life changing experience to the home of one of the most ancient cultures as it evolves and adapts into the 21st Century. Legend has it that the area of Pondicherry and Auroville is a sacred spot that was the Tapas Bhoomi (land/place of austerity) and Ashram of Agastya Muni, a great Sage of the Vedic era who has set in motion traditions and practices that are being followed even till today.
