Commercial enterprises of the Ashram manufacture and sell a whole load of lifestyle products

Sri Aurobindo's arrival in Pondicherry a century ago gave this coastal town a different identity — that of a spiritual centre. He and The Mother have since influenced lifestyles in this town many ways, drawing people from all over the world. Any given day, hundreds gather to pay homage to Sri Aurobindo and The Mother at the Ashram, and then walk to the nearby Manakula Vinayagar Temple. This year marks a hundred years since Sri Aurobindo's arrival here. But the Ashram is more than just that. The commercial enterprises of the Ashram manufacture and sell a whole load of lifestyle products ranging from clothes and fragrances to stationery and handicrafts fashioned out of handmade paper. Members of the community are also involved in environment and social causes.

Located 12 km from Puducherry, Auroville is a universe by itself, centred around the Matrimandir. Auroville today stands as a universal township, celebrating diversity of culture and nationalities. From small-scale manufacturing units to organic farms, there is nothing you cannot find in Auroville. It is at once, a spiritual centre, an industrial town and a pulsating cultural hub, complete with impromptu gigs and high-profile performances. The huge international population, great food, and the constantly-brewing boho-chic fashion storms make Auroville irresistible, for tourists.
