In 1966,The Mother asked Sunil Bhattacharya to compose the musical accompaniment for Her readings of Sri Aurobindo’s Savitri. He continued to compose music for Savitri (and for the New Year) till his passing in 1998.
In his compositions for Savitri and for the New Year, Sunilda incorporated chantings of mantras from the Vedas, the Upanishads and various Stavas and Stotras, invoking the diverse Godheads of India. To him, the Mother and Sri Aurobindo were the Supreme as well as all the Goddesses and Gods of Indian mythology. As a result, we often find him replacing the names of the different deities mentioned in the originals with the names of the Mother or Sri Aurobindo.
MANTRAS IN SUNILDA'S SAVITRI MUSIC
SAVITRI BOOK 06 CANTO 02
तद्ध तद्वनं नाम तद्वनमित्युपासितव्यं स य एतदेवं वेदाभि हैनं सर्वाणि भूतानि संवाञ्छन्ति ।
यो वा एतामेवं वेदापहत्य पाप्मानमनन्ते स्वर्गे लोके ज्येये प्रतितिष्ठति प्रतितिष्ठति॥
The name of That is '' That Delight'' ; as That Delight one should follow after It. He who so knows That, towards him verily all
He who knows this knowledge, smites evil away from him and in that vaster world and infinite heaven finds his foundation, yea, he finds his foundation.
Kenopanishad : 4,6,9

THE RECITATION BY THE MOTHER :
SAVITRI BOOK 6 CANTO 2
603 Bear; thou shalt find at last thy road to bliss.
604 Bliss is the secret stuff of all that lives, . . .
613 Indifference, pain and joy, a triple disguise,
614 Attire of the rapturous Dancer in the ways,
615 Withhold from thee the body of God’s bliss.
