I am happy to learn that Auroville is celebrating fifty years of its foundation.
The International Township of Auroville, inspired by the vision and ideals of
Sri Aurobindo, one of modern India’s greatest sages,
is a unique symbol of human unity, of trans-continental collaboration. of
harmony and synthesis.
Auroville represents humanity’s aspiration for peace and goodwill
and symbolises our civilisational and age-old belief in
lts aim of promoting international
understanding, a new vision of education and harmonious collective living is inspiring.
This also reflects our quest for achieving
oneness in diversity.
I extend my warm greetings and felicitations
to all those
associated with the Auroville Foundation.
I wish the Golden Jubilee
Celebrations every success.
