We surrender to Thee this evening all that is artificial and false, all that pretends and imitates. Let it disappear with the year that is at an end. May only what is perfectly true, sincere, straight and pure subsist in the year that is beginning.
- The Mother, 1935
For the past two years, we have been welcoming the New Year by reciting Sri Aurobindo’s epic Poem, SAVITRI. This year too, the Akhand Path of Savitri is taking place at Sri Aurobindo Society and one can participate live as well as online.
Savitri contains 724 pages and about 24,000 lines. It will take around 28 to 30 hours to do an Akhand Path (continuous recitation) of Savitri, considering the different paces of reading.
Everyone who volunteers will read for 15 minutes at one time. There will be time slots of 15 minutes. Each one can reserve a preferred time slot. One can opt for reading just once or multiple times over these 30 hours.
Those desirous of listening can come and sit silently whenever convenient to them.
Please use the link to reserve your time slot in the google spreadsheet given below, by 30th December 2022, 05:00 pm IST.
The physical recitation will take place on 31st December 2022 from 05:00 AM to 11:00 AM IST in AuroYajna department and from 11:30 AM till 1st January 2023 in The Mother's room at Society House.
