ACRES FOR AUROVILLE – 21 February 2015
The Matrimandir is not any building. When the Mother called it “the soul of Auroville’ she alluded to its profound dimensions. And the land around it is not any land – it is the material base, the adhara, for these profound dimensions to work for human progress and evolution.
must have a vast area - not like this
(Mother took Her handkerchief in Her palm and closed Her hand), so small. Also there must be a silent
zone. No vehicles should move in this area, there should be no noise of any
The Mother’s words give a glimpse into her vision of the Matrimandir area – a precious haven of peace, beauty, inspiration, and spiritual sustenance. But significant strategically important pieces of land are still missing, still at risk of being developed in a way that is inconsistent with the Mother’s vision and intention for the Matrimandir.
That is why on August 15th, 2014, Sri Aurobindo’s birthday, Auroville International and Lands for Auroville Unified- LFAU launched the Acres for Auroville campaign, whose first goal is to acquire the missing plots which are so vital for protecting the consecrated atmosphere of the Matrimandir.
February is the month in which the visionary of Matrimandir, of Auroville, of the new creation and a new world, graced this earth with her physical embodiment. 21st February, as we know, is the Mother’s birthday. For our A4A campaign, it is a third point in time, a third rhythm to recall and re-activate our concern and commitment. Every donation adds a point of energy, force and solidarity to the ring of protection we are together creating for the Matrimandir. The accompanying flyer provides information on how to donate.
United for Auroville, for a great vision of the future,
