The Auroville Spirit

"Auroville is not just an idea. It is the future, the future of the World. It is the only model that I know of that has survived, and I believe in it more today than ever before. I have come here today to breathe the Auroville spirit. I am not an Aurovilian, but I have the Auroville spirit."
