Dear Friends,

Yesterday I attended the rehearsal of Shree Aurobindo's 'Savitri' ( a more detailed description of what you will savour is mentioned below...I would just like to share my views...

I personally have tried to read 'Savitri' and have failed to read the whole book as it is very beautiful but 'heavy'

Here you have an opportunity to see a beautiful, enjoyable visual treat, which will be an experience and learning, which 'chances are' you will not do on your own.

Fix a group and go for the 'cheaper tickets' if you must...but do attend...

See you,

Love Shakun

Much love,


In an effort to bring the embalming freshness of Sri Aurobindo's spirituality to this generation, the Bombay Regional Committee is presenting a three fold dance ballet called "The Cosmic Embrace" at the main auditorium, Nehru Centre, Worli, Mumbai on Sat. 17th January 2009, from 5:15 pm to 7:30 pm.

On this spectacular evening of song, dance, drama and Malkhumb emerging from a spiritual base, our esteemed audience will first behold and experience the impact of the Cosmic Embrace on an ordinary individual called Venketraman who gets instantaneously transported to the height of a saint – none other than the great Raman Maharshi.

Next they will see how the same theme of Divinity is expressed in the tantalizing story of Nachiketa in the ancient lore of the Upanishads.

And lastly they will get a chance to unravel and absorb the most powerful excerpts of Sri Aurobindo's epic poem SAVITRI performed by skilled national level Malkhamb artists.

We hope that this viewing will firmly plant the seed of spirituality in the hearts and minds of the audience who will certainly feel a change in themselves by the time they are brought to the finale of this program.
