Embracing the Dream of United India
As the 150th birth anniversary of Sri Aurobindo draws to a close, Auroville seeks to invoke His timeless wisdom and guiding light. This momentous occasion beckons us to extend His profound vision to a wider audience, offering glimpses of His transformative insights. Commemorating India’s independence on 15th August 1947, Sri Aurobindo envisioned five dreams for a New India – a United India, an Asian Resurgence, a World Union, a Spiritual Gift of India, and a Spiritualised Society through Self Perfection.
This year, Sri Aurobindo’s First Dream – United India – stands at the forefront of Invocation’23, embodying the spirit of harmony and oneness that resonates beyond borders. Today, as India celebrates 75th year of independence, the dream of true unity and freedom remains a work in progress. While remarkable strides have been made, disturbing echoes of the past still linger, posing challenges to the nation’s cohesion. At the heart of Invocation’23 lies the cherished aspiration for a United India, a beacon of hope illuminating the path towards global harmony. May we heed the call to transcend barriers and embrace the dream of united hearts and minds, for it is within unity that the spirit of Auroville finds its fullest expression.
In Auroville, during the month of August, a 15-day event named ‘INVOCATION’ honors the essence of Sri Aurobindo – the revolutionary, the poet, the seer, the guide, and the harbinger of the Future. Rather than extravagant celebrations, the focus is on introspection and collective contemplation, fostering unity through Concentration, Convention, Collaboration, Cultural and Casual gatherings.
Auroville invites all to partake in this meaningful journey of invoking Sri Aurobindo’s presence within ourselves and our lives. United in purpose, we explore the profound teachings that unite us as one human family.
