The idea of a modern day, utopian society has been thought up and illustrated by humans for centuries, however, there may actually be a demonstration of this concept in India. A society known as Auroville (City of Dawn), is an experimental township of approximately 2,500 people has no politics, religion or physical currency. It maintains a few core beliefs that it applies to every aspect of daily life:
- Auroville belongs to nobody in particular. Auroville belongs to humanity as a whole. But to live in Auroville, one must be the willing servitor of the Divine Consciousness.
- Auroville will be the place of an unending education, of constant progress, and a youth that never ages.
- Auroville wants to be the bridge between the past and the future. Taking advantage of all discoveries from without and from within, Auroville will boldly spring towards future realisations.
- Auroville will be a site of material and spiritual researches for a living embodiment of an actual Human Unity.
The society was founded in 1968 by Mirra Alfassa (known as “The Mother”) and architect Roger Anger. The society was intended for 50,000 people from any and all countries. If you would like to be a part of this experimental society based around peace, the link is below.
