Savitri Bhavan in Auroville is a centre dedicated to fostering a living sense of Human Unity through spiritual education based on the vision and teachings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. The central focus is Sri Aurobindo’s mantric epic Savitri : a legend and a symbol, which the Mother has called ‘The supreme revelation of Sri Aurobindo’s vision’.

Savitri Bhavan aims to gather and create, to house and make available all kinds of materials and activities that will foster a deeper appreciation of Savitri, of the lives, work and vision of
Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, and of the aims and ideals of Auroville, in a space that breathes the atmosphere of Savitri.

An Introduction to Savitri

To assist people who are just beginning to explore Sri Aurobindo’s mantric epic, the Savitri Bhavan team has compiled an introductory booklet containing statements about the poem from Sri Aurobindo himself and from the Mother, a brief account of the composition of the poem, summaries of all the 49 cantos making up the twelve books of the epic, and a reading list of publications which may be helpful to students and researchers.
