Happiest of New Years! from Auroville

Children light candles outside the Tibetan Pavilion

Our second home became a place of meditation as hundreds of people gathered to reflect on the past year and light a candle to welcome the new one. Buddhist chants echoed throughout the atrium as the laughter and chatter of friends and family surrounded the pavilion.

The City of Dawn sees its first sunrise of the new year

The amphitheater at Matrimandir was lined with candles and new years greetings in a dozen languages written with flowers. The Mother’s organ music played as visitors watched the first sunrise of 2010.
