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 Campaign
“Let us all work with a growing sincerity for the Manifestation of the Divine Truth”
The Mother’s symbol represents the truth of a higher reality. Its twelve attributes, the Powers of the Mahashakti, are enshrined in the 12 Meditation chambers at the base of the Matrimandir. They show us the qualities we need to link the two poles of our existence - Divine and Human – and to be builders of a New World: Sincerity, Humility, Gratitude, Perseverance, Aspiration, Receptivity, Progress, Courage, Goodness, Generosity, Equality, Peace.
Bridging these two poles in collective life and in matter is the aim of Auroville, the Mother’s great pioneering point and City of Dawn. Anchored in Matter, Auroville is non-separable from its land. Today, securing Auroville’s still-missing land is the urgent need. We can all see this need around us, and so we must all unite and act! As Sri Aurobindo wrote:
“If you merely wait for things to happen, there is no reason why they should happen at all”
Collaborating to manifest The City of Dawn is our privilege! Join the A4A action to secure the land now!!
