"A free equality founded upon spontaneous cooperation,
not on governmental force and social compulsion
is the highest anarchic ideal."

- Sri Aurobindo ' The Human Cycle

 

Auroville Health Services is a new administrative enterprise for health resources management in Auroville, founded in June 2001,a unit of the Auroville Foundation under the Auroville Fund. A concerted approach to management of health care ~ funds, activities, projects, liaisons, people

The paradigm for its operations is that of:

Needle and thread, stitching together the various health activities and units through resource facilitation, co-ordination, sharing information, awareness enhancing activities.

The core concept on which it is founded is:

Auroville Health Services is the name of a concept that visualises complete individuation of each part that makes up the whole while keeping in mind that it is a whole at a primary stage with the inevitable growth that will come. Yet, each part is aware of the interconnectedness and thus intends interdependence in a symbiotic manner so as to lead to a system that is rich in diversity and yet is harmonious in its manifestations with the central ideals of Auroville.

The mainstay of our operations is Goodwill towards Auroville; in the form of Friends of Auroville who become our partners for progress, Aurovilians who are involved in the field of health & medicine. All those who have the will to help develop Auroville as an experimental field in healing and health.

We aspire to support all health education and research activity in Auroville. Towards this we appeal to you for your generous help and support to achieve the Mother's dream that "Auroville will be a place of unending research" in human unity.

 

Its central idea takes from a quote of the Mother's in a letter written in October '71 to Auroville -


"The true spirit of Auroville is collaboration and must be more and more so.
True Collaboration Paves The Way To Divinity"
