KALVI – Our Story

KALVI (Education in Tamil) was created by a group of educators engaged with Integral Education in Auroville. The unit focuses on researching and implementing games and activities for didactic purposes. These games/activities are designed to nurture a child’s inner awareness. KALVI is presently exploring and researching “Aurogames”, educational games developed by Auroculture. She arrived at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry, in 1971, and moved to Auroville in the mid 1990s. She was asked by the Mother to create educational games, which she called “Aurogames”. Auroculture has given KALVI “Aurogames” to use and expand upon. KALVI 's imminent plan is to develop educational materials to expand the six faculties of consciousness (thinking, seeing, hearing, speaking, vital and body). To make this work happen any support is greatly appreciated. Please visit www.facebook.com/Kalvi-Auroville-246577842371218 Or contact kalvi@auroville.org.in

A talk with Shraddhavan

Shraddhavan, an author and Project coordinator at Savitri Bhavan talks about how things unfolded and brought her to Auroville, her initial days here, Sri Aurobindo's epic Savitri and a sweet message for the 50th Anniversary of Auroville.

The Auroville Charter

Auroville was born on 28 February 1968. Its founder, the Mother, created the Auroville Charter consisting of four main ideas which underpinning her vision for Auroville. When Auroville came into being, All India Radio (AIR) broadcast the Charter, live, in 16 languages. Aurovilians apply the ideas of the Auroville Charter in their daily life, in policy-development, and decisions, big and small. The Charter thus forms an omnipresent referent that silently guides the people who choose to live and work for Auroville.

The Auroville Charter

Auroville belongs to nobody in particular. Auroville belongs to humanity as a whole. But, to live in Auroville, one must be a willing
servitor of the divine consciousness.
Auroville will be the place of an unending education, of constant progress, and a youth that never ages.
Auroville wants to be the bridge between the past and the future. Taking advantage of all discoveries from without and from within, Auroville will boldly spring towards future
realisations.
Auroville will be a site of material and spiritual researches for a living embodiment of an actual human unity.


During the Auroville inauguration in 1968, youth from 124 different nations and 23 Indian states, deposited a handful of their native soil into the Urn, a marble clad structure in the form of a symbolic lotus bud, located in the centre of the Amphitheatre (see photo). The Auroville Charter - handwritten in French by the Mother - rests along with this soil, sealed in the Urn, as a powerful message and promise.
