Ever heard of Auroville? Spirituality sans the Religious aspect

Utopian Living?

A peculiar place in South India, Auroville seeks to unite people from all walks of life with people from over 50 countries living together. Auroville is populated with roughly 5% of it's eventual total capacity of occupants.

I was just in and around Chennai a few months ago, but thought you had to get special permission to visit, now I think that information must be old and you just have to check in at a Visitor Center.

I'm quite curious to get some first hand accounts of what it was like when you visited or what you've heard from friends that may have been there.
