about Auroville
“Is it possible to bring a utopia to life? When searching for an ideal world, do we part with reality or maybe give it a new shape? And is creating alternative realities something that only cult leaders do? Stasia Budzisz discussed these and other questions with Katarzyna Boni, whose reportage Auroville. Miasto z marzeń[Auroville: The City Made of Dreams] was published in Polish in June 2020.”

Auroville is not meant to provide a comfortable life; all it gives to its people is the means of basic survival, and everyone must take care of the rest.

Auroville shows that change, while being slow and difficult, is actually possible. It requires enormous open-mindedness, endurance and conviction. The fact that changes happen so slowly is less comforting; today, we need changes to take place much more swiftly. But perhaps it would happen faster if more people worked to make them come true?
