Auroville was founded by in the sixties by the above mentioned Aurobindo and Mirra Alfassa also known as “The Mother”, all with the purpose of creating one spiritual sanctuary where everyone who wants to get to know their inner self is welcomed. They defined the religion and spirituality as something very personal and hard to define, you could say relative, and every individual tends to have different perception of it, but nevertheless it’s something that needs to get renewed to grow and to bring you peace and harmony, because let’s face it sometimes the religion that we face in our society can often become a tool for control of the masses and sometimes even become dogmatic and dull.
