Auroville will be the place of an unending education, of constant progress, and a youth that never ages.
Volunteer, Intern or Study
As education has become a lifelong process it is necessary to re-imagine all activities and institutions of life as contexts for learning. This demands us to re-imagine the very notion of the university if it is to embrace all contexts of human life from birth to death. It has to be a learning society that is at once a university as well as a city where the full complexity of human life is experimented upon in live-in laboratories.
Discover Who You AreThe first necessity is the inner discovery in order to know what one truly is behind social, moral, cultural, racial and hereditary appearances.
Learn Through WorkWork, even manual work, is something indispensable for the inner discovery.
Learn with PractionersLearning in Auroville is not academic but happens with practitioners who are following their passion in work.
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.
