Auroville is based upon the vision of the Mother who described it as aspiring 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

It is an emerging international township of over 1,500 people from India and more than 30 other nations.

The activities pursued by the inhabitants are many and various. They include village development, education, business, land restoration and afforestation, research into renewable energy and experimental construction, health care and varied cultural activities.

Whatever the outer activities, however, the main aim is inner change, for without a radical change in inner consciousness permanent outer change is impossible.
