Auroville is a small settlement in South India , planned as an international experimental township, inspired by the vision and ideals of Sri Aurobindo and founded by Mirra Alfassa, known as the Mother. It is an international city of the future where people from all over the world live together and explore new ideas and thoughts on culture, science, education, environment and a spiritual way of being.

About This Channel

The Lébou people say that not knowing is bad, but not seeking knowledge is worse. Travel in the modern world is an ethical minefield of terms like ethical tourism, responsible travel, fair trade travel.
