Auroville’s Birthday Meditation

On February 28th 1968, Auroville was founded. As every year, Aurovilians and friends gather on this date to celebrate together, waiting for the sunrise, with a great dawnfire (dawn-bonfire).

The recorded voice of The Mother Mirra Alfassa, founder of Auroville, welcomes us reminding principles, goals and duties of this “living experiment”, of this “city that the world needs”. “Benedictions à Auroville” is written with flowers on the floor in front of the urn that contains handfuls of soil from all 250 countries that founded Auroville 48 years ago.

Happy birthday!
