"Savitri" by Sri Aurobindo
A theatre performance



An offering by the residents of the Delhi Sri Aurobindo Ashram
Sunday 30th March at 5 pm - Sri Aurobindo Auditorium - Bharat Nivas - Auroville

One shall Descend and break the iron Law,
Change Nature's doom by the lone spirit's power.

- Savitri

This offering is a dramatized, meditative rendition of selected passages from the epic poem Savitri by Sri Aurobindo.
Savitri is an incarnation of the Divine Mother, "the daughter of the Sun, goddess of the supreme Truth", descended upon earth to lead humanity out of bondage, pain, suffering and death.
Satyavan represents the bound soul "descended into the grip of death and ignorance."
This play traces the life of Savitri from her birth to her ultimate triumph over the Lord of Death, a triumph that releases Satyavan from the jaws of death and darkness.

Sunil-da's musical compositions for Savitri provide the background support for this play.

Nature shall live to manifest secret God,
The Spirit shall take up the human play,
This earthly life become the life divine.

- Savitri
