President Draupadi Murmu

 On 8th August, 2023 

For the first time after becoming the President of India, Droupadi Murmu visited the Matrimandir at Auroville and inaugurated a conference on 'Aspiring for Supermind in the City of Consciousness'

Bridging Global Challenges through Auroville’s Supermind

President Droupadi Murmu said as India stood poised to lead the world in providing lasting solutions to global challenges, the Auroville community could greatly contribute towards this endeavour.

In her special address at the plenary session of a conference hosted in Auroville on “Aspiring for Supermind in the City of Evolving Consciousness”, the President said India occupies the high table among nations in the contemporary world.

The President recalled Sri Aurobindo’s significant speech on India’s Independence where he outlined his dreams for the country and humanity, of passing on India’s spiritual gift to the world which was turning towards it with hope. The message of India goes beyond the economic and technological spheres. India’s message of ‘One Earth, One Family, One Future’ or ‘Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam’ reflects the ideals propagated by Sri Aurobindo.

Awakening the Divine Within

In her eloquent speech, President Smt. Murmu delved into the transformative power of the Supermind, emphasizing its ability to elevate human consciousness and bridge the gap between the material and the intangible. She beautifully articulated how divinity, though individually interpreted, transcends the mundane and aspires toward progress, unity, and collective development.

Furthermore, she highlighted the impact of awakened minds working together—a force capable of achieving unimaginable results. Drawing inspiration from Maharishi Aurobindo’s concept of the Cosmic Being, she advocated for cosmic consciousness as a solution to the world’s challenges, leading us toward a harmonious and peaceful existence.
