Imagine - Auroville


Auroville. A city nestled on the east coast of Southern India, within the the famous cyclone corridor of of the Bengal, is a City established by The Mother, also known as Mirra Alfassa in 1968, about 20 years before this song was released. Founded on the principals and Teachings of Sri Aurobindo, Auroville is a living example of the miracles Human Unity can produce. Only 50 years ago, the city was nothing but a barren, arid red dessert into a lush forest. A city with No Nationality, No Money, No police, No Religion.

Auroville is found on the Principal, that the Divine Consciousness, if manifested materially, would need an instrument suitable enough and with matter in its present condition, it cannot be fully manifest or expressed physically in one person or being. Hence, an entire city, to absorb and manifest this consciousness, with millions of trees, a lot of wild life and several humans, Auroville is the cradle from which the new creation is rising to take it's very first steps into the Luminous Future.
