"A free equality founded upon spontaneous
not on governmental force and social compulsion
is the highest anarchic ideal."
- Sri Aurobindo ' The
Auroville Health Services is a new administrative
enterprise for health resources management in Auroville, founded in
June 2001,a unit of the Auroville Foundation under the Auroville Fund.
A concerted approach to management of health care ~ funds, activities,
projects, liaisons, people
The paradigm for its operations is that of:
Needle and thread, stitching together the various
health activities and units through resource facilitation, co-ordination,
sharing information, awareness enhancing activities.
The core concept on which it is founded is:
Auroville Health Services is the name of a concept
that visualises complete individuation of each part that makes up the
whole while keeping in mind that it is a whole at a primary stage with
the inevitable growth that will come. Yet, each part is aware of the
interconnectedness and thus intends interdependence in a symbiotic manner
so as to lead to a system that is rich in diversity and yet is harmonious
in its manifestations with the central ideals of Auroville.
The mainstay of our operations is Goodwill towards
Auroville; in the form of Friends of Auroville who become our partners
for progress, Aurovilians who are involved in the field of health &
medicine. All those who have the will to help develop Auroville as an
experimental field in healing and health.
We aspire to support all health education and research
activity in Auroville. Towards this we appeal to you for your generous
help and support to achieve the Mother's dream that "Auroville
will be a place of unending research" in human unity.
Its central idea takes from a quote of the Mother's
in a letter written in October '71 to Auroville -
"The true spirit of Auroville is collaboration and must be more
and more so.
True Collaboration Paves The Way To Divinity"
