TOWARDS HUMAN UNITY
A traveling event that takes the idea and ideals of Auroville to a new nation every time. Auroville is supposed to represent all nation-souls, and thus we need to reach out to various nations, to inspire them to be conscious of their nation-soul and contribute to Auroville’s culture.
Auroville aspires 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 realize human unity.
Sri Aurobindo's 5 Dreams
‘Invocation – The Gnostic Festival’. An Invocation to various aspects of Sri Aurobindo – the revolutionary, the poet, the seer, the guide, and most importantly to the future.
As this year’s 15th August also marks 75 years of India’s independence, we’re invoking Sri Aurobindo’s 5 Dreams for a New India. He wrote them for the eve of our independence, and they were broadcast on Air India, Thiruchirapalli, in 1947. He enunciated His 5 Dreams for India, yet their significance reaches beyond her borders. He dreamt about a United India, an Asian Resurgence, a World Union, a Spiritual Gift, and Self Perfection.
this event is planned not as grand celebrations, but rather as a reminder and a means to come together or go inwards through programmes related to Concentration, Convention, Collaboration, as well as Cultural and Casual gatherings.
The Spiritual Summit is an annual event held by Auroville and Sri Aurobindo Ashram in major Indian cities, in relation to Spirituality as propounded by Sri Aurobindo. In addition, it also serves as a prominent international conference, with world spiritual leaders attending its related summits and meetings to discuss various problems and global issues, strengthening co-operation, and making decisions and declarations based on spiritual thoughts. The summit will also be attended by world leaders for its success and ability to produce results on a global level.
