Arka is a living and activities centre arranged for the needs of elder Aurovilians. It aims to be an environment in which seniors can dedicate themselves to the inner work pertaining to their particular stage in life, while sustaining a healthy, balanced and harmonious lifestyle. Arka aims to keep people healthy and active as long as possible. The project has chosen to address a particular facet of the total problem concerning the ageing process by providing means for postponing and preventing the need for the kind of care that can only be provided by a hospital, medical centre or hospice.

Arka publishes a regular schedule of therapies and workshops. It has an internet browsing centre open to the wider Auroville community, and a library space that doubles as an art gallery.
