Introspection on the Lines of Savitri: An Exhibition of Symbols of Matter’s Trance, Sleep and Waking

On the eve of 5th December, the day when Sri Aurobindo left his physical body, we like to invoke through prayers, the Great Spirit of the Supreme, to live in us and show us the path towards Immortality.

On the occasion, we present a small exhibition of paintings by Samij Datta with lines of inspiration from Savitri.

In the far distant realms of truth, we invoke the power of the Supermind to descend on the earthly stupor of material inconscience and only through this invocation and prayers and aspiration, we strengthen the possibility of this great Descent to raise matter from its depths of primal ignorance and infuse in it the life-fulfilling potentials of a higher consciousness and force that can sweep the earth of its old, grey feet and bring new leaves and the blossoming lotus.- Joy Roy Choudhury.
