After having read and discussed this Canto in two previous sessions, Matteo, Andrea, John Robert, Geoffrey, and Marco read through all of it in one go, receiving something of a transmission.
We are performing an intimate reading of Sri Aurobindo’s Savitri – A Legend and a Symbol, with virtual meetings 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.
