Centenary sunrise with Savitri reading,

29.3.2014



For the celebration of the Centenary of the first arrival of Mirra Alfassa in Pondicherry and her
first meeting with Sri Aurobindo, on 29 march 1914, a meeting that gave birth to a lifetime collaboration,
and finally to the creation of Auroville, a sunrise gathering in the amphitheater.
In front of a beautiful composition of flowers and lamps, the reading of a long passage from Sri Aurobindo's poem "Savitri",
narrating the first meeting between Savitri herself and Satyavan.
This is a short version of this reading, with subtitles, and more images of the flower decorations,
while the night slowly gives space to dawn, to a new light, finally to the rising sun.
