Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that the world has received positive vibrations from Auroville in many forms over the years, be it unending education, environment regeneration, renewal energy, organic agriculture, appropriate building technologies, water management or waste management.
Inaugurating the golden jubilee week at Auroville International city in Villippuram district of Tamil Nadu near Puduchery, he said Auroville has been a pioneer and done a lot to promote quality education in the country. 'Serving young minds to education will be a big tribute to Sri Aurobindo and mother', PM Modi added.
Sri Aurobindo's vision of India's spiritual leadership continues to inspire us even today. Indeed Auroville is a manifestation of that vision. Over the last five decades, it has emerged as a hub of social, cultural, educational and economic and spiritual innovation. It is important today to remember the vast extent of thought and action of Sri Aurobindo, a man of action, a philosopher, a poet, the Prime Minister said.
