Genesis of the Auroville Foundation Act

Talk by Alain Bernard on January 2010

This talk tells the story of the genesis of a very important event for Auroville as this Act, voted by the Indian Parliament in 1988, gave a legal status to Auroville. It is still the basis of Auroville’s administration.

Till now, there was no full documentation on the long period of gestation of this Act and particularly about the dramatic culmination during the three weeks of August-September 1988. This translation of the French transcript has been augmented with a few more details about the events which led to the break-up with the Sri Aurobindo Society.
