Country: Russia
Language: Russian / EN subtitles

A philosophical doctrine on the transformation of human nature.

The film expresses the concept of Human Unity which is being developed in the experimental city of Auroville, founded on principles of shared leadership, sustainable development and new consciousness. The driving force behind the manifestation of it was Mirra Alfassa, known to her followers as The Mother. Auroville is meant to be a universal town where men and women of all countries are able to live in peace and progressive harmony, above all creeds, all politics and all nationalities. Under the shaping influence of the Mother’s and Sri Aurobindo’s dual philosophies, Auroville emerges as a unique, multi-cultural confluence where matter and spirit, the individual and the collective meet in the search for a higher consciousness.
