About The New Being and the New Society

During the early years of Auroville, which was founded in 1968, the Mother was engaged in many aspects of the town's development. The aim of this book is to present a historical view, through the collection and grouping of documents, notes, conversations, messages, and reports, either in the Mother's words or from disciples who worked closely with her on the project. Among the themes explored are the Mother's guidelines for work, economic activities to support the township, the organisation of life in Auroville – internal and external –, and the relationship with the local villagers. Some archival material is published here for the first time.
