We stumbled upon this amazing concept and community of Auroville. Considering the complexity of humanity and adding a spiritual foundation, the international community of Auroville was envisioned by spiritual guru Sri Aurobindo and Mother. It was born out of the idea that all communities should be allowed to live in harmony. Over 2000 'citizens' -1200 from Tamil Nadu and 800 representing 40 other countries- live side by side in 90 different communities - each emphasizing different arts, crafts, renewable energy, healing or cottage industries. In the center of this resurrected desert community, surrounded by millions of trees forming the 'green belt' lies the Matrimandir - "the soul of Auroville". This 10 storey high golden sphere houses a spiritual treasure, a silent inner chamber built out of white marble with 12 pillars spaced around the circular room (very Free Masonic). The floor is covered with white carpeting and pillows and the lights dimmed. Sunlight from above shines a beam through the darkness down into the world's largest glass crystal ball, at the center 50 feet below.
Auro Ba Cottage
Auroville is a spiritual town at the outskirts of Pondicherry. It houses maximun number of french expatriates who run cultural and spiritual centers. Auro Ba is a beach side cottage resort. Each cottage is in the form of huts each having ground and first floor. Staying in huts is an awaesome experience all together. We feel all time connected to nature and enjoy an inexplicable adventurous stay. Better to stay away from fancy glittery rooms with all amenities and take up something that soothes our mind body and soul.
