News & Notes 688:A proposal for the celebration of Auroville’s 50th anniversary
A proposal for the celebration of Auroville’s 50th anniversary
Dear all, we would like to propose to review the plans for a large and expensive celebration of Auroville´s 50th anniversary. We feel that although it is a significant achievement for Auroville to even still exist after half a century, it would be more appropriate to make this event a time of introspection and reaffirmation of our original aims, to be more focused on our internal processes and to share this achievement in a quiet way with a meditation under the banyan tree with our fellow Aurovilians rather than with a big public event. It will be nice to find a way to see how many people share this view and if It´s not too late to change the program, if that’s what the community wants.
