Invitation to Sri Aurobindo's Savitri
Based on a series of talks in Pondicherry
— M. V. Nadkarni
ISBN: 978-81-7060-400-6
Available since 16-Oct-2019
Binding: Soft Cover
Pages: 426
Price: Rs 450

The first chapter of this book, which is based on the author’s series of thirty-one talks introducing the poem, lays down a few key principles in his approach to the subject. First, that in writing Savitri, Sri Aurobindo was leaving for posterity a verbal embodiment of his own consciousness. Then, through the poetry he was flooding the earth atmosphere with the vibrations of hope and love in an age already wallowing in nihilism, building a bridge between this world of human limitations and the future world that he was opening up. And that is why the writing of Savitri is a very significant event in human history. The transcribed talks cover the entire epic as well as chapters on how to read Savitri and comparisons with the original legend. The book concludes with a glossary of Sanskrit terms used in the poem and references for the many quotations from Savitri and from other texts by Sri Aurobindo cited by the author.
