Celebrating fifty years through photographs, this book is a dynamic visual narrative of Auroville’s development. Although the photographs, both familiar and fresh, do not follow a strict chronological order, there are recurrent themes that provide a historical perspective. It begins with the local inhabitants of the land on which Auroville is built, followed by photos of the inauguration ceremony in 1968 and the first settlers to arrive on the dusty plains, some very dramatic photos of the Matrimandir construction, and ends with the golden jubilee celebration on 28 February 2018. Interspersed are photographs of several people who played a role in supporting the growth of Auroville, a photomontage of Auroville’s children, studying, playing, and growing up before our eyes, and views of Auroville life through the creative arts, sport, experimental architecture, alternative energy, village development, quiet moments of contemplation in the beauty of the growing surroundings, and informal portraits of its residents.

Huta then completed the work in her studio as an oil painting. The Mother named the series of paintings Meditations on Savitri. This volume of 124 paintings accompanied by the corresponding lines from Savitri, covers Book Four, "The Book of Birth and Quest” (31 paintings), Book Five, “The Book of Love” (21 paintings), Book Six, “The Book of Fate” (23 paintings), and Book Seven, “The Book of Yoga” (49 paintings).


Sri Aurobindo's Savitri: An Apocalyptic Literature
— Prof. Dr Madhumati M. Kulkarni
ISBN: 978-81-93953-80-8
Available since 10-Jun-2019
Binding: Soft Cover
Pages: 370
Price: Rs 575

This book is a study of Sri Aurobindo’s Savitri based on the concept of revelatory visions of the future of mankind. Taking a scholarly approach to the subject, the author includes chapters defining the genre of apocalyptic literature and its mystic or spiritual basis, and Savitri as an Indian illustration of the genre. Subsequent chapters examine the revelatory aspects of the poem in relation to the true nature and purpose of the human being, the mystery of consciousness on the mental, vital, and physical planes, and the hidden meaning of consciousness on the planes of the higher mind, the illumined mind, the plane of intuition, the overmind, and the supramental.
