We are performing an intimate reading of Sri Aurobindo’s Savitri – A Legend and a Symbol, with virtual meeting every 1st and 3rd Wednesday until the poem is fully read. Savitri: A Legend and a Symbol is an epic poem in blank verse by Sri Aurobindo, based upon the theology from the Mahabharata. Its central theme revolves around the transcendence of man as the consummation of terrestrial evolution, and the emergence of an immortal supramental gnostic race upon earth. Unfinished at Sri Aurobindo’s death, Savitri approaches 24,000 lines.

A quick notification to @MarcoMasi who requested zoom information.

I will (still) be unable to attend this and future sessions. I have started reading the first Canto and love the deep langauge of the Unconscious Spirit…if it can be named as such.

Pleased that these sessions are in slow time chunking, opening up a more graceful learning curve for us fast living individuals with only spare time to spare.
