auromira shrine

"Let this place be worthy of its name and manifest the true spirit of Sri Aurobindo's teaching and message to the world."

- The Mother CWM, vol. 15, p217.

Sri Aurobindo‘s and The Mother‘s Centre of Integral Yoga is known as Auromira Centre.

Its aim is to promote spiritual progress in its entirety for everyone, irrespective of caste, creed or colour.

Auromira Centre came into existence in 1981, originally as a small centre for prayers, meditation and occasional lectures. Those activities gathered momentum and by 1988 the annual summer lectures on spiritual topics and the celebration of Darshan days became well known features. In 1996 a bust of Sri Aurobindo was installed at the Centre. The enshrinement of Sri Aurobindo‘s Relics took place on 1st January 1998 by Professor Manoj Das of Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry.

A shrine room has been specially created to permanently house the bust and relics of Sri Aurobindo, where one can meditate in a quiet and peaceful environment.

Sri Aurobindo and The Mother‘s presence are also strongly felt in the Meditation Room, where regular meetings and talks are held.

Activities at the Centre include regular meetings with readings and meditation, as well as children‘s workshops and classes in Gujarati and music.

In addition, there are talks by various speakers on topics related to Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. There is a library of spiritual literature including books and periodicals in English and Gujarati on Sri Aurobindo's and The Mother‘s teaching.

A variety of agarbatis, photographs, books and audio and video cassettes are available for sale.

The Centre is a charitable trust. However, it is not involved in any fund-raising activities and charges no fees. Everyone is welcome to participate in the activities of the Centre for the Divine Work. Any offerings will be gratefully accepted for the Centre‘s various activities, including inviting speakers from abroad.
