Auroville wants to be a universal town where men and women of all countries are able to live in peace and progressive harmony above all creeds, all politics and all nationalities. The purpose of Auroville is to realise human unity.

I have been for many years a visitor in Auroville. To support in projects in sustainability, to guide and contribute to those projects and find funding. 

I have always liked it to be the intermediair between possibilities and actual manifestation. 

The creation of Auroville, comes from a woman and man, called Mirra Alfassa (later called The Mother) and Sri Aurobindo (born as Aurobindo Ghoose). It was a vision of Sri Aurobindo which The Mother manifested.

Here about She wrote 'The Dream', which refers to The Dream of The Divine, which means a city living in human unity.

Hope it inspires you:

A Dream 

There should be somewhere on earth a place which no nation could claim as its own.
Where all human beings of goodwill, who have a sincere aspiration, could live freely as citizens of the world and obey one single authority, that of the supreme truth.

A place of peace, concord and harmony, where all the fighting instincts of man would be used exclusively to conquer the causes of his sufferings and miseries, to surmount his weaknesses and ignorance, to triumph over his limitations and incapacities.
A place where the needs of the spirit and the concern for progress would take precedence over the satisfaction of desires and passions, the search for pleasure and material enjoyment.

In this place, children would be able to grow and develop integrally, without losing contact with their souls.
Education would be given not for passing examinations or obtaining certificates and posts, but to enrich existing faculties and bring forth new ones.

In this place, titles and positions would be replaced by opportunities to serve and organise.

The bodily needs of each one would be equally provided for and intellectual, moral and spiritual superiority would be expressed in the general organisation, not by an increase in the pleasures and powers of life, but by increased duties and responsibilities.

Beauty in all it's artistic forms, painting, sculpture, music, literature, would be equally accessible to all.
The ability to share in the joy it brings, would be limited only by the capacities of each one and not by social or financial position.

For in this ideal place, money would no longer be the sovereign lord; individual worth would have a far greater importance than that of material wealth and social standing.

There, work would not be a way to earn one’s living, but a way to express oneself and to develop one’s capacities and possibilities, while being of service to the community as a whole, which, for it's own part, would provide for each individual’s subsistence and sphere of action.

In short, it would be a place where human relationships, which are normally based almost exclusively on competition and strife, would be replaced by relationships of emulation in doing well, of collaboration and real brotherhood.

The earth is certainly not ready to realize such an ideal, for mankind does not yet possess the necessary knowledge to understand and accept it, nor the indispensable conscious force to execute it. That is why I call it a dream. Yet, this dream is on the way of becoming a reality. That is exactly what we are doing on a small scale, in proportion to our modest means. The achievement is indeed far from being perfect, it is progressive; little by little we advance towards our goal, which, we hope, one day we shall be able to hold before the world as a practical and effective means of coming out of the present chaos in order to be born into a more true, more harmonious new life.

The Mother, august 1954
