Sri Aurobindo Influence in Pondicherry

Pondicherry is home to the Aurobindo Ashram, founded in the 1920’s and growing exponentially ever since. Auroville is a planned community just to the north of Pondicherry established in the 1950’s to be a multi-national enclave of peace and meditation. The ashram is in-town along with a multitude of related workshops and studios producing products. Chances are that the Indian incense or scented oil that you use at home came from an Aurobindo-related enterprise. All of this gives the town a bit of a new-age, spiritual slant wherever you go in the “White Town”.
