Ashwagandha has been referred to as Indian ginseng; its roots are used in India in much the same way as ginseng is used in traditional China.
Auroville is a centre for alternative technology in India and the world. Natural earth-building methods have been developed to a high degree. Organic farming is well established and use of natural methods of manufacturing without pollution or destruction of the planet are a hallmark of the Auroville community.
Auroville means City of Dawn. It was founded in 1968 as a place where people of goodwill from all over the world could come together to make a living experiment in human unity and serve a greater dream and greater purpose. It is a site of spiritual and physical research. Presently some 2000 people from 35+ countries and India are gathered in this amazingly creative place, located 160 kms south of Chennai, India, on the Coromandel Coast near Pondicherry. The city-in-the-make is intended for 50.000 inhabitants and works closely with the local population from the surrounding villages in whose midst it is emerging.
"Greetings from Auroville to all men of good will. Are invited to Auroville all those who thirst for progress and aspire to a higher and truer life."
"Auroville wants 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. The purpose of Auroville is to realise human unity."
