ACRES FOR AUROVILLE is dedicated to raising funds to purchase urgently-needed land for completing and consolidating Auroville’s material base. A collaboration of Auroville International & Lands for Auroville Unified (LFAU) in coordination with Auroville’s Land Board, the campaign fundraises for priority plots within all of the Master Plan area – the City Area, the Greenbelt, and the Peace Area that encircles and protects the Matrimandir. The boom in land speculation makes each unsecured acre a target in danger of being lost to Auroville forever! The need is great, and the time is now! Let’s get the land the Mother envisioned for the City of Dawn! Join the A4A action!! More campaign & donor information: www.colaap.org

ACRES FOR AUROVILLE land campaign24 November 2016 – The Siddhi Day
« To Thee our infinite gratitude »
November 24th 1926 was the date of Sri Aurobindo’s great siddhi or realization, opening the gates to a greater, spiritualized consciousness for Humanity. He consecrated the next 24 years to concretizing the promise of Spirit and Matter in harmony.
Auroville is the designated place for pioneering Sri Aurobindo’s great vision. Over the past 48 years, it has flowered step-by-inspiring step, thanks to so many acts of individual and collective dedication. But one step is still needed – completing Auroville’s material body with urgently-needed Master Plan area land.
For Auroville’s upcoming 50th birthday, Acres for Auroville is building a gift of gratitude – the precious gift of land! We thank all the donors whose invaluable support has already made part of this gift possible – you have our sincere gratitude. All friends and visionaries are invited to join us in solidarity for building the City of Dawn. Setting the tone for us all, The Mother had these words engraved in the marble of Sri Aurobindo’s Samadhi:
“May we never forget even for a moment, all we owe to Thee”
Let’s unite in gratitude for the Vision & Achievements!
Help build the 50th birthday gift of land!!
