Money is meant to circulate
Money is not meant to generate money; money should generate an increase in production, an improvement in the conditions of life and a progress in human consciousness. This is its true use.
All wealth belongs to the Divine and those who hold it are trustees, not possessors. It is with them today, tomorrow it may be elsewhere.

ShopThe physical world is the world of form and the perfection of form is beauty.
Art galleries cannot be brought into every home, but, if all the appointments of our life and furniture of our homes are things of taste and beauty, it is inevitable that the habits, thoughts and feelings of the people should be raised, ennobled, harmonised, made more sweet and dignified.
Join Auroville...to live in Auroville, one must be a willing servitor of the Divine Consciousness.
To be convinced of the essential unity of mankind and the will to collaborate in the material realization of that unity.
...a place where the needs of the spirit and the care for progress would get precedence over the satisfaction of desires and passions, the seeking for pleasures and material enjoyments.
