In 1968 the Mother commenced her work on Savitri with Huta. The Mother read out passages from Savitri and then after a deep contemplation gave her comments which were tape-recorded and later transcribed by Huta. The Mother named the work About Savitri.
In 1972 Huta offered to the Mother copies of About Savitri, Part One (now out of print), consisting of Book One Canto One. The Mother's message for the book was: "Savitri -- The supreme revelation of Sri Aurobindo's vision." Part Two of About Savitri consisting of Book One Canto
Two was published in 2000 (also now out of print), while Part Three with Book One Canto Three was issued in 2005.
Here is Part Four of About Savitri consisting of over a third of Book One Canto Four, with the Mother's explanations on the passages, and including 18 paintings by Huta inspired and approved by the Mother.
About the Author:
Born in Paris in 1878, the Mother studied painting at an art studio and became an accomplished artist. Primarily interested in inner development, she was associated with several groups of spiritual seekers in France.
In 1914 she journeyed to India to meet the Indian mystic Sri Aurobindo in Puducherry and settled there permanently in 1920. For nearly fifty years, she was the head of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, from its founding in 1926 until her passing in 1973. She also established a school, the Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education, in 1952, and an international township, Auroville, in 1968.
