A rare footage of Dec. 5, 1950 after Sri Aurobindo’s passing

We are privileged.

Just now coming back home after a few hours of work for Repos in various Auroville offices, I found in my mail  this link to a rare footage showing, most importantly, Sri Aurobindo’s body after his passing, and also documenting, together with the crowd gathered at the Ashram, the coming of the VIPs of the time with garlands as is the custom in India.

The music being played in the background is music improvised by the Mother on the organ, that much I am sure of; it was probably played for another occasion and just added as the only adequate accompanying music for this exceptional document.
