Intro to Auroville: A Dream Down to Earth:
A glimpse of Auroville an intentional township in the South of India based on the ideals of Sri Aurobindo and his spiritual companion the Mother. This film explores the aspects of renewable energy, education, health, art, economy and decision making and ending with bioregion and international effect.
Already in 1954 the Mother had spelled out an alternative formula for a new way to live and to be. She described a new society: balanced, just, harmonious and dynamic. At the time she saw that "the earth is not ready to realise such an ideal" and therefore called it ‘A Dream’. The fact that Auroville steadily grows, and its residents continue to carry this same ideal and vision in their hearts and minds, gives hope. The challenges are enormous and daring. When this dream touches you, don’t hesitate to join us.
