Sri Aurobindo's birth anniversary August 15, 2010

in Auroville's Amphitheatre

This is a short documentation of the gathering in Auroville for the anniversary of Sri Aurobindo's birth,
on August 15, 2010.
As every year we wait for the rising of the sun in a meditative atmosphere in the amphitheatre
with flower decorations and a dawn bonfire, which we call "dawnfire".
The amphitheatre is the place where Auroville was founded, 42 years ago,
around the lotus-shaped urn which contains soil from all countries of the world,
in front of the Matrimandir, the spiritual center of the town.
