Enlight is the endeavour of youth grown up within the consciousness of Auroville. A place of continuous harmony and spiritual awakening. Enlight in this journey is focused on “Creating awareness about responsible tourism and slow travel. Encouraging alternative and more mindful experiences and interactions. Between service providers, local communities, travellers and our environment. A blend of wisdom and pragmatism, providing an opportunity to learn and experience the open university that is Auroville, self-learning through mentorship”.
Our main focus is to work with local communities in building and developing self-sufficiency and livelihood efficacy. We started as a bridge between our community and travellers to experience the many faces and facets of Auroville. Its soul of entrepreneurship is based on walking the journey of life. Walk people through the spiritual ethos of Auroville as they are enveloped in its caring and accepting inclusiveness.
Our Key Activities are Programs and Workshops highlighting the talent and multiple textures of Auroville. We started our journey in January 2023 as an activity under LEAD (Auroville Foundation).

Auroville Cycle Tour
One of the most remarkable concepts of Auroville is its master plan, laid out in the form of a galaxy – a galaxy in which several ‘arms’ or Lines of Force seem to unwind from a central region. At the centre stands the Matrimandir, the “soul of Auroville”, a place for individual silent concentration. Radiating out beyond the Matrimandir Gardens are four Zones, each focusing on an important aspect of the township’s life:
- Industrial (north)
- Cultural (north east),
- Residential (south/south west) and
- International (west)
Surrounding the city area is a Green Belt consisting of forested areas, farms and sanctuaries with scattered settlements for those involved in green work

Every part of this land is honored and respected.Solitude Farm is a true example of Masanobu Fukuoka’s philosophy in practice – a road back to nature through eating local food.
