The aims of Auroville:
An effective human Unity
Peace upon earth.
The Hall of Peace is the home of the Peace Table for Asia, the third of six such tables envisioned and created by architect and wood craftsman George Nakashima, to be placed one on each continent. It was on 29 February 1996 the Table of Peace was installed in Bharat Nivas, Auroville.
The intention of the Hall of Peace is to create around the Peace Table a simple and artistic collective environment that generates an atmosphere of peace, harmony, light and beauty which will inspire people to explore the depths of their own inner nature and Consciousness. It will be a space for deeper dialogues, meditations and explorations into the nature and truth of Peace in all areas of life, where people can collectively be open to new inspirations and works to be done for the field of Peace and Human Unity in the future.
