--- THE MOTHER ON SAVITRI
  - I believe that it is his message; all the rest are the preparations, but Savitri is the message.
  - ... My child, yes, everything is there: mysticism, occultism, philosophy, the history of evolution, the history of man, of the gods, of creation, of Nature. How the universe was created, why, for what purpose, what destiny - all is there. You can find all the answers to all your questions there. Everything is explained, even the future of man and of the evolution, all that nobody yet knows. He has described it all in beautiful and clear words so that spiritual adventurers who wish to solve the mysteries of the world may understand it more easily. But this mystery is well hidden behind the words and lines and one must rise to the required level of true consciousness to discover it. All prophesies, all that is going to come is presented with the precise and wonderful clarity. Sri Aurobindo gives you here the key to find the Truth, to discover the Consciousness, to solve the problem of what the universe is. ... He has noted all the stages, ... in order to advance integrally in the integral Yoga. ...


first lines:
  It was the hour before the Gods awake.
  Across the path of the divine Event
  The huge foreboding mind of Night, alone
  In her unlit temple of eternity,
  Lay stretched immobile upon Silence marge.


Desc GR ::: In this epic spiritual poem, Sri Aurobindo reveals his vision of mankind's destiny within the universal evolution. He sets forth the optimistic view that life on earth has a purpose, and he places our travail within the context of this purpose: to participate in the evolution of consciousness that represents the secret thread behind life on Earth.

Desc Wiki ::: Savitri: A Legend and a Symbol is an epic poem in blank verse by Sri Aurobindo, based upon the theology from the Mahabharata. Its central theme revolves around the transcendence of man as the consummation of terrestrial evolution, and the emergence of an immortal supramental gnostic race upon earth.

75:17.2) A line 1st appears in Savitri ~6 Sep 1942:“His brain was wrapped in overwhelming light”—which can be interpreted as the physical’s mind receiving the higher light, i.e. Mind of Light.That's perhaps similar to the realisation #SriAurobindo described in 'The Golden Light'.,
76:If I had to choose a motto for myself, I would take this one — pure, dure, sûre, [Pure, hard, certain] — in other words: unalterable.

77:If there is a single fact which anyone who seriously studies the history of Christianity cannot help but be struck by, it is the almost complete absence of documents regarding the man whose name this great international religion bears -- Jesus Christ. We know of him only what is told to us in the New Testament gospels, that is, practically nothing. ~ Savitri Devi,
78:A 'civilization' that makes such a ridiculous fuss about alleged 'war crimes' - acts of violence against the actual or potential enemies of one's cause - and tolerates slaughterhouses and vivisection laboratories, and circuses and the fur industry (infliction of pain upon creatures that can never be for or against any cause), does not deserve to live. ~ Savitri Devi,
79:And the greatest praise to India is this: not only are her people beautiful; not only are her daily life and cult beautiful; but, in the midst of the utilitarian, humanitarian, dogmatic world of the present day, she keeps on proclaiming the outstanding value of Beauty for the sake of Beauty, through her very conception of Godhead, of religion and of life. ~ Savitri Devi,
80:We believe that man's value - as every creature's value, ultimately - lies not in the mere intellect but in the spirit: in the capacity to reflect that which, for lack of a more precise word, we choose to call “the divine,” i.e. that which is true and beautiful beyond all manifestation, that which remains timeless (and therefore unchangeable) within all changes. ~ Savitri Devi,
81:Recalling some of the most spectacular horrors of history - the burning of heretics and witches at the stake, the wholesale massacre of heathens, and other no less repulsive manifestations of Christian civilization in Europe and elsewhere - modern man is filled with pride in the progress accomplished, in one line at least, since the end of the dark ages of religious fanaticism. ~ Savitri Devi,

83:Sincere thought, real free thought, ready, in the name of superhuman authority or of humble common sense, to question the basis of what is officially taught and generally accepted, is less and less likely to thrive. It is, we repeat, by far easier to enslave a literate people than an illiterate one, strange as this may seem at first sight. And the enslavement is more likely to be lasting. ~ Savitri Devi,
84:Whether Hindus or Greeks, Egyptians or Japanese, Chinese, Sumerians, or ancient Americans -- or even Romans, the most "modern" among people of antiquity -- they all placed the Golden Age, the Age of Truth, the rule of Kronos or of Ra or of any other gods on earth -- the glorious beginning of the slow, downward unfurling of history, whatever name it be given -- far behind them in the past. ~ Savitri Devi,
85:I worship impersonal Nature, which is neither "good" or "bad", and who knows neither love nor hatred. I worship Life; the Sun, Sustainer of life. I believe in the Law of everlasting struggle, which is the law of life, and in the duty of the best specimens of our race - the natural élite of mankind - to rule the earth, and evolve out of themselves a caste of supermen, a people 'like unto the Gods'. ~ Savitri Devi,

87:I embraced Hinduism because it was the only religion in the world that is compatible with National Socialism. And the dream of my life is to integrate Hitlerism into the old Aryan Tradition, to show that it is really a resurgence of the original Tradition. It's not Indian, not European, but Indo-European. It comes from back to those days when the Aryans were one people near the North Pole. The Hyperborean Tradition. ~ Savitri Devi,
88:I'm for a multi-racial world in which each race keeps to itself, in harmony with the other races. Like in a garden, you have flowerbeds of roses and flowerbeds of carnations and irises and different other flowers. They don't intermarry. They stay separate, and each one has its beauty. . . . I'm against colonialism for the reason that colonialism infects the master as well as the slave. It even infects the master more. ~ Savitri Devi,
89:Creation and destruction are one, to the eyes who can see beauty.

And the greatest praise to India is this: not only are her people beautiful; not only are her daily life and cult beautiful; but, in the midst of the utilitarian, humanitarian, dogmatic world of the present day, she keeps on proclaiming the outstanding value of Beauty for the sake of Beauty, through her very conception of Godhead, of religion and of life. ~ Savitri Devi,
90:She closed her eyes and bowed to the cobra, asking his forgiveness, for they had disturbed him in his kingdom. She faced the cobra and drew the waves of fear and anger into herself, dissolving them, and the cobra, seeing the danger was gone, slid on his way into the undergrowth. When the cobra was gone Mr Baldwin laid a hand on Fiona's upper arm, which was cold from fear and shaking, and David's sunbrowned face looked pale with fright. Only Savitri was unperturbed. She looked up to meet Mr Baldwin's gaze. ~ Sharon Maas,
91:To us, the high-resounding “isms” to which our contemporaries ask; us to give our allegiance, now, in 1948, are all equally futile: bound to be betrayed, defeated, and finally rejected by men at large, if containing anything really noble; bound to enjoy, for the time being, some sort of noisy success; if sufficiently vulgar, pretentious and soul-killing to appeal to the growing number of mechanically conditioned slaves that crawl about our planet, posing as free men; all destined to prove, ultimately, of no avail. ~ Savitri Devi,
92:To those privileged ones -- among whom we count ourselves -- the high-resounding "isms" to which their contemporaries ask them to give their allegiance are all equally futile: bound to be betrayed, defeated, and finally rejected by men at large, if containing anything really noble; bound to enjoy, for the time being, some sort of noisy success, if sufficiently vulgar, pretentious, and soul-killing to appeal to the growing number of mechanically conditioned slaves that crawl about our planet, posing as free men; all destined to prove, ultimately, of no avail. ~ Savitri Devi,
93:Respect the man of noble races other than your own, who carries out, in a different place, a combat parallel to yours -- to ours. He is your ally. He is our ally, be he at the other end of the world.
Love all living things whose humble task is not opposed in any way to yours, to ours: men with simple hearts, honest, without vanity and malice, and all the animals, because they are beautiful, without exception and without exception indifferent to whatever "idea" there may be. Love them, and you will see the eternal in the glance of their eyes of jet, amber, or emerald. Love also the trees, the plants, the water that runs though the meadow and on to the sea without knowing where it goes; love the mountain, the desert, the forest, the immense sky, full of light or full of clouds; because all these exceed man and reveal the eternal to you. ~ Savitri Devi,
94:What, then, remains to be done by those who live now, devoted body and soul to our ideal of visible (and invisible) perfection on all planes? On a worldwide scale, or even national, absolutely nothing. It is too late. The “twenty-fifth hour” has sounded for too long a time.

On the individual scale, or at least “restricted,” there remains to preserve, insofar as it is still possible, the beauty of the world: human, animal, vegetable, inanimate; all beauty; to obstinately and efficiently preserve élite minorities; dedicatedly to defend them at all costs—all noble minorities, whether they be those of the Aryans of Europe, Asia, or America, conscious of the excellence of their common race; or of those splendid large felines threatened by extinction; or of those noble trees threatened by the atrocity of being uprooted by bulldozers in order to install, on their nourishing soil, invading multitudes of mammals with two legs, less beautiful and less innocent than they. It remains to take care and resist; and to aid all beautiful minorities attacked by the agents of chaos; to resist, even if that should delay only a few decades the disappearance of the last aristocrats among men, animals, or trees. There is nothing else that one can do, if not, perhaps, to curse in one’s heart, day and night, today’s humanity (apart from very rare exceptions), and to work with all one’s efforts for its destruction. ~ Savitri Devi,
95: Pi-Dog
This is the time of day I like best,
and this the hour
when I can call this city my own;
when I like nothing better
than to lie down here, at the exact centre
of this traf?c island
(or trisland as I call it for short,
and also to suggest
a triangular island with rounded corners)
that doubles as a parking lot
on working days,
a corral for more than ?fty cars,
when it's deserted early in the morning,
and I'm the only sign
of intelligent life on the planet;
the concrete surface hard, ?at and cool
against my belly,
my lower jaw at rest on crossed forepaws;
just about where the equestrian statue
of what's-his-name
must've stood once, or so I imagine.
I look a bit like
a seventeenth-century map of Bombay
with its seven islands
not joined yet,
shown in solid black
on a body the colour of old parchment;
with Old Woman's Island
16
on my forehead,
Mahim on my croup,
and the others distributed
casually among
brisket, withers, saddle and loin
- with a pirate's
rather than a cartographer's regard
for accuracy.
I like to trace my descent
- no proof of course,
just a strong family tradition matrilineally,
to the only bitch that proved
tough enough to have survived,
?rst, the long voyage,
and then the wretched weather here
- a combination
that killed the rest of the pack
of thirty foxhounds,
imported all the way from England
by Sir Bartle Frere
in eighteen hundred and sixty-four,
with the crazy idea
of introducing fox-hunting to Bombay.
Just the sort of thing
he felt the city badly needed.
On my father's side
the line goes back to the dog that followed
Yudhishthira
on his last journey,
17
and stayed with him till the very end;
long after all the others
- Draupadi ?rst, then Sahadeva,
then Nakul, followed by Arjuna and,
last of all, Bhima had fallen by the wayside.
Dog in tow, Yudhishthira alone plodded on.
Until he too,
frostbitten and blinded with snow,
dizzy with hunger and gasping for air,
was about to collapse
in the icy wastes of the Himalayas;
when help came
in the shape of a ?ying chariot
to airlift him to heaven.
Yudhishthira, that noble prince, refused
to get on board unless dogs were allowed.
And my ancestor became the only dog
to have made it to heaven
in recorded history.
To ?nd a more moving instance
of man's devotion to dog,
we have to leave the realm of history,
skip a few thousand years
and pick up a work of science fantasy
- Harlan Ellison's A Boy and his Dog,
a cultbook among pi-dogs everywhere in which the ‘Boy' of the title
sacri?ces his love,
and serves up his girlfriend
as dogfood to save the life of his
18
starving canine master.
I answer to the name of Ugh.
No,
not the exclamation of disgust;
but the U pronounced as in Upanishad,
and gh not silent,
but as in ghost, ghoul or gherkin.
It's short for Ughekalikadu,
Siddharamayya's
famous dog that I was named after,
the guru of Kallidevayya's dog
who could recite
the four Vedas backwards.
My own knowledge of the scriptures
begins
and ends, I'm afraid,
with just one mantra, or verse;
the tenth,
from the sixty-second hymn
in the third mandala of the Rig
(and to think
that the Rig alone contains ten thousand
?ve hundred and ?fty-two verses).
It's composed in the Gayatri metre,
and it goes:
Om tat savitur varenyam
bhargo devasya dhimahi
dhiyo yonah prachodayat.
Twenty-four syllables, exactly,
if you count the initial Om.
Please don't ask me what it means, though.
19
All I know
is that it's addressed to the sun-god
- hence it's called Savitri and it seems appropriate enough
to recite it
as I sit here waiting for the sun
to rise.
May the sun-god amplify
the powers of my mind.
What I like about this time and place
- as I lie here hugging the ground,
my jaw at rest on crossed forepaws,
my eyes level with the welltempered
but gaptoothed keyboard
of the black-and-white concrete blocks
that form the border of this trisland
and give me my primary horizon is that I am left completely undisturbed
to work in peace on my magnum opus:
a triple sonata for a circumpiano
based on three distinct themes one suggested by a magpie robin,
another by the wail of an ambulance,
and the third by a rockdrill;
a piebald pianist, caressing and tickling
the concrete keys with his eyes,
undeterred by digital deprivation.
As I play,
the city slowly reconstructs itself,
stone by numbered stone.
20
Every stone
seeks out his brothers
and is joined by his neighbours.
Every single crack
returns to its ?agstone
and all is forgiven.
Trees arrive at themselves,
each one ready
to give an account of its leaves.
The mahogany drops
a casket bursting with winged seeds
by the wayside,
like an inexperienced thief
drops stolen jewels
at the sight of a cop.
St Andrew's church tiptoes back to its place,
shoes in hand,
like a husband after late-night revels.
The university,
you'll be glad to know,
can never get lost
because, although forgetful,
it always carries
its address in its pocket.
My nose quivers.
A many-coloured smell
of innocence and lavender,
mildly acidic perspiration
and nail polish,
rosewood and rosin
21
travels like a lighted fuse
up my nose
and explodes in my brain.
It's not the leggy young girl
taking a short cut
through this island as usual,
violin case in hand,
and late again for her music class
at the Max Mueller Bhavan,
so much as a warning to me
that my idyll
will soon be over,
that the time has come for me
to surrender the city
to its so-called masters.

  It does not matter if you do not understand it - Savitri, read it always. You will see that every time you read it, something new will be revealed to you. Each time you will get a new glimpse, each time a new experience; things which were not there, things you did not understand arise and suddenly become clear. Always an unexpected vision comes up through the words and lines. Every time you try to read and understand, you will see that something is added, something which was hidden behind is revealed clearly and vividly. I tell you the very verses you have read once before, will appear to you in a different light each time you re-read them. This is what happens invariably. Always your experience is enriched, it is a revelation at each step.
  
  --
  
  Savitri alone is sufficient to make you climb to the highest peaks. If truly one knows how to meditate on Savitri, one will receive all the help one needs. For him who wishes to follow this path, it is a concrete help as though the Lord himself were taking you by the hand and leading you to the destined goal. And then, every question, however personal it may be, has its answer here, every difficulty finds its solution herein; indeed there is everything that is necessary for doing the Yoga.
  
  --
  
  You know, before writing Savitri Sri Aurobindo said to me, *I am impelled to launch on a new adventure; I was hesitant in the beginning, but now I am decided. Still, I do not know how far I shall succeed. I pray for help.* And you know what it was? It was - before beginning, I warn you in advance - it was His way of speaking, so full of divine humility and modesty. He never... *asserted Himself*. And the day He actually began it, He told me: *I have launched myself in a rudderless boat upon the vastness of the Infinite.* And once having started, He wrote page after page without intermission, as though it were a thing already complete up there and He had only to transcribe it in ink down here on these pages.
  
  In truth, the entire form of Savitri has descended "en masse" from the highest region and Sri Aurobindo with His genius only arranged the lines - in a superb and magnificent style. Sometimes entire lines were revealed and He has left them intact; He worked hard, untiringly, so that the inspiration could come from the highest possible summit. And what a work He has created! Yes, it is a true creation in itself. It is an unequalled work. Everything is there, and it is put in such a simple, such a clear form; verses perfectly harmonious, limpid and eternally true. My child, I have read so many things, but I have never come across anything which could be compared with Savitri. I have studied the best works in Greek, Latin, English and of course French literature, also in German and all the great creations of the West and the East, including the great epics; but I repeat it, I have not found anywhere anything comparable with Savitri. All these literary works seems to me empty, flat, hollow, without any deep reality - apart from a few rare exceptions, and these too represent only a small fraction of what Savitri is. What grandeur, what amplitude, what reality: it is something immortal and eternal He has created. I tell you once again there is nothing like in it the whole world. Even if one puts aside the vision of the reality, that is, the essential substance which is the heart of the inspiration, and considers only the lines in themselves, one will find them unique, of the highest classical kind. What He has created is something man cannot imagine. For, everything is there, everything.
  
  It may then be said that Savitri is a revelation, it is a meditation, it is a quest of the Infinite, the Eternal. If it is read with this aspiration for Immortality, the reading itself will serve as a guide to Immortality. To read Savitri is indeed to practice Yoga, spiritual concentration; one can find there all that is needed to realise the Divine. Each step of Yoga is noted here, including the secret of all other Yogas. Surely, if one sincerely follows what is revealed here in each line one will reach finally the transformation of the Supramental Yoga. It is truly the infallible guide who never abandons you; its support is always there for him who wants to follow the path. Each verse of Savitri is like a revealed Mantra which surpasses all that man possessed by way of knowledge, and I repeat this, the words are expressed and arranged in such a way that the sonority of the rhythm leads you to the origin of sound, which is OM.
  
  My child, yes, everything is there: mysticism, occultism, philosophy, the history of evolution, the history of man, of the gods, of creation, of Nature. How the universe was created, why, for what purpose, what destiny - all is there. You can find all the answers to all your questions there. Everything is explained, even the future of man and of the evolution, all that nobody yet knows. He has described it all in beautiful and clear words so that spiritual adventurers who wish to solve the mysteries of the world may understand it more easily. But this mystery is well hidden behind the words and lines and one must rise to the required level of true consciousness to discover it. All prophesies, all that is going to come is presented with the precise and wonderful clarity. Sri Aurobindo gives you here the key to find the Truth, to discover the Consciousness, to solve the problem of what the universe is. He has also indicated how to open the door of the Inconscience so that the light may penetrate there and transform it. He has shown the path, the way to liberate oneself from the ignorance and climb up to the superconscience; each stage, each plane of consciousness, how they can be scaled, how one can cross even the barrier of death and attain immortality. You will find the whole journey in detail, and as you go forward you can discover things altogether unknown to man. That is Savitri and much more yet. It is a real experience - reading Savitri. All the secrets that man possessed, He has revealed, - as well as all that awaits him in the future; all this is found in the depth of Savitri. But one must have the knowledge to discover it all, the experience of the planes of consciousness, the experience of the Supermind, even the experience of the conquest of Death. He has noted all the stages, marked each step in order to advance integrally in the integral Yoga.
  
  All this is His own experience, and what is most surprising is that it is my own experience also. It is my sadhana which He has worked out. Each object, each event, each realisation, all the descriptions, even the colours are exactly what I saw and the words, phrases are also exactly what I heard. And all this before having read the book. I read Savitri many times afterwards, but earlier, when He was writing He used to read it to me. Every morning I used to hear Him read Savitri. During the night He would write and in the morning read it to me. And I observed something curious, that day after day the experiences He read out to me in the morning were those I had had the previous night, word by word. Yes, all the descriptions, the colours, the pictures I had seen, the words I had heard, all, all, I heard it all, put by Him into poetry, into miraculous poetry. Yes, they were exactly my experiences of the previous night which He read out to me the following morning. And it was not just one day by chance, but for days and days together. And every time I used to compare what He said with my previous experiences and they were always the same. I repeat, it was not that I had told Him my experiences and that He had noted them down afterwards, no, He knew already what I had seen. It is my experiences He has presented at length and they were His experiences also. It is, moreover, the picture of Our joint adventure into the unknown or rather into the Supermind.
  
  These are experiences lived by Him, realities, supracosmic truths. He experienced all these as one experiences joy or sorrow, physically. He walked in the darkness of inconscience, even in the neighborhood of death, endured the sufferings of perdition, and emerged from the mud, the world-misery to breathe the sovereign plenitude and enter the supreme Ananda. He crossed all these realms, went through the consequences, suffered and endured physically what one cannot imagine. Nobody till today has suffered like Him. He accepted suffering to transform suffering into the joy of union with the Supreme. It is something unique and incomparable in the history of the world. It is something that has never happened before, He is the first to have traced the path in the Unknown, so that we may be able to walk with certitude towards the Supermind. He has made the work easy for us. Savitri is His whole Yoga of transformation, and this Yoga appears now for the first time in the earth-consciousness.
  
  And I think that man is not yet ready to receive it. It is too high and too vast for him. He cannot understand it, grasp it, for it is not by the mind that one can understand Savitri. One needs spiritual experiences in order to understand and assimilate it. The farther one advances on the path of Yoga, the more does one assimilate and the better. No, it is something which will be appreciated only in the future, it is the poetry of tomorrow of which He has spoken in The Future Poetry. It is too subtle, too refined, - it is not in the mind or through the mind, it is in meditation that Savitri is revealed.
  
  And men have the audacity to compare it with the work of Virgil or Homer and to find it inferior. They do not understand, they cannot understand. What do they know? Nothing at all. And it is useless to try to make them understand. Men will know what it is, but in a distant future. It is only the new race with a new consciousness which will be able to understand. I assure you there is nothing under the blue sky to compare with Savitri. It is the mystery of mysteries. It is a *super-epic,* it is super-literature, super-poetry, super-vision, it is a super-work even if one considers the number of lines He has written. No, these human words are not adequate to describe Savitri. Yes, one needs superlatives, hyperboles to describe it. It is a hyper-epic. No, words express nothing of what Savitri is, at least I do not find them. It is of immense value - spiritual value and all other values; it is eternal in its subject, and infinite in its appeal, miraculous in its mode and power of execution; it is a unique thing, the more you come into contact with it, the higher will you be uplifted. Ah, truly it is something! It is the most beautiful thing He has left for man, the highest possible. What is it? When will man know it? When is he going to lead a life of truth? When is he going to accept this in his life? This yet remains to be seen.
  
  My child, every day you are going to read Savitri; read properly, with the right attitude, concentrating a little before opening the pages and trying to keep the mind as empty as possible, absolutely without a thought. The direct road is through the heart. I tell you, if you try to really concentrate with this aspiration you can light the flame, the psychic flame, the flame of purification in a very short time, perhaps in a few days. What you cannot do normally, you can do with the help of Savitri. Try and you will see how very different it is, how new, if you read with this attitude, with this something at the back of your consciousness; as though it were an offering to Sri Aurobindo. You know it is charged, fully charged with consciousness; as if Savitri were a being, a real guide. I tell you, whoever, wanting to practice Yoga, tries sincerely and feels the necessity for it, will be able to climb with the help of Savitri to the highest rung of the ladder of Yoga, will be able to find the secret that Savitri represents. And this without the help of a Guru. And he will be able to practice it anywhere. For him Savitri alone will be the guide, for all that he needs he will find Savitri. If he remains very quiet when before a difficulty, or when he does not know where to turn to go forward and how to overcome obstacles, for all these hesitations and incertitudes which overwhelm us at every moment, he will have the necessary indications, and the necessary concrete help. If he remains very calm, open, if he aspires sincerely, always he will be as if lead by the hand. If he has faith, the will to give himself and essential sincerity he will reach the final goal.
  
  Indeed, Savitri is something concrete, living, it is all replete, packed with consciousness, it is the supreme knowledge above all human philosophies and religions. It is the spiritual path, it is Yoga, Tapasya, Sadhana, in its single body. Savitri has an extraordinary power, it gives out vibrations for him who can receive them, the true vibrations of each stage of consciousness. It is incomparable, it is truth in its plenitude, the Truth Sri Aurobindo brought down on the earth. My child, one must try to find the secret that Savitri represents, the prophetic message Sri Aurobindo reveals there for us. This is the work before you, it is hard but it is worth the trouble. - 5 November 1967

  Skyward from its earth-seat through luminous air,
  Queen-browed, the human mother of Savitri.
  
  --
  And caught the heavens, came with a call of hooves,
  As of her swift heart hastening, Savitri;
  Her radiant tread glimmered across the floor.
  --
  Whom hast thou chosen, kingliest among men?"
  And Savitri answered with her still calm voice
  As one who speaks beneath the eyes of Fate:
  --
  Happy is Satyavan mid earthly men
  Whom Savitri has chosen for her mate,
  And fortunate the forest hermitage
  Where leaving her palace and riches and a throne
  My Savitri will dwell and bring in heaven.
  
  --
  Then cried the sage piercing the mother's heart,
  Forcing to steel the will of Savitri,
  His words set free the spring of cosmic Fate.

  A marvel of the meeting earth and heavens

  But Savitri answered from her violent heart, -
  Her voice was calm, her face was fixed like steel:
  --
  It greatens slowly into timeless peace."
  But Savitri replied with steadfast eyes:

  Then Savitri surged out of her body's wall
  And stood a little span outside herself
  --
  But to the too satisfied and confident sage
  Savitri replied casting into his world
  Sight's deep release, the heart's questioning inner voice:

  And Savitri mingling in that glorious crowd,
  Yearning to the spiritual light they bore,
  --
  
  "O Savitri, from thy hidden soul we come.
  
  --
  And the deep cavern of thy secret soul."
  Then Savitri following the great winding road
  Came where it dwindled into a narrow path

07.04_-_The_Triple_Soul-Forces, #Savitri, #Sri Aurobindo, #Integral Yoga
  In soft sweet training words slowly she spoke:
  "O Savitri, I am thy secret soul.
  
  --
  I suffer and toil and weep; I moan and hate."
  And Savitri heard the voice, the echo heard
  And turning to her being of pity spoke:
  --
  Aspired the harmony of her puissant voice:
  "O Savitri, I am thy secret soul.
  
  --
  Omnipotence and omniscience shall be mine."
  And Savitri heard the voice, the warped echo heard
  And turning to her being of power she spoke:
  --
  
  "O Savitri, I am thy secret soul.
  
  --
  This wizard gods may dream, not thinking men."
  And Savitri heard the voice, the warped answer heard
  And turning to her being of light she spoke:

  And Savitri's life was glad, fulfilled like earth's;

  Thus spoke the mighty and uplifting Voice,
  And Savitri heard; she bowed her head and mused
  Plunging her deep regard into herself

  The Book of Death was taken from Canto Three of an early version of Savitri which had only six cantos and an epilogue.

Its original designation, "Canto Three", has been retained as a reminder of this.

  She came to him in silent anguish and clasped,
  And he cried to her, "Savitri, a pang
  Cleaves through my head and breast as if the axe
  --
  Perhaps because thou touchest, death may pass."
  Then Savitri sat under branches wide,
  Cool, green against the sun, not the hurt tree
  --
  He cried out in a clinging last despair,
  "Savitri, Savitri, O Savitri,
  Lean down, my soul, and kiss me while I die."

  Borne into distance from the eyes' desire,

  --
  But still the light prevailed and still it grew,
  And Savitri to her lost self awoke;
  Her limbs refused the cold embrace of death,
  --
  As ceased the ruthless and tremendous Voice,
  Unendingly there rose in Savitri,
  Like moonlit ridges on a shuddering flood,
  --
  Open at last on thee their marble eyes."
  But Savitri answered the disdainful Shade:
  "World-spirit, I was thy equal spirit born.
  --
  Depart in peace, if peace for man is just."
  But Savitri answered meeting scorn with scorn,
  The mortal woman to the dreadful Lord:
  --
  The One lives for ever. There no Satyavan
  Changing was born and there no Savitri
  
  --
  Then shalt thou rise into thy unmoved source."
  But Savitri replied to the dread Voice:

  Consenting to the impermanence of things."
  But Savitri replied for man to Death:

  But Savitri answered to almighty Death:
  "O dark-browed sophist of the universe
  --
  Bare in the bareness, hard with truth's hardness live."
  But Savitri replied to the dire God:
  "Yes, I am human. Yet shall man by me,
  --
  In me all take refuge, for I, Death, am God."
  But Savitri replied to mighty Death:
  "My heart is wiser than the Reason's thoughts,
  --
  Show me thy strength and freedom from my laws."
  But Savitri answered, "Surely I shall find
  Among the green and whispering woods of Life
  --
  And Satyavan can never again be thine."
  But Savitri replied to the vague Power:
  "If the eyes of Darkness can look straight at Truth,
  --
  Whatever once the living Satyavan
  Desired in his heart for Savitri.
  
  --
  And loving empire over all thy loved,
  Two poles of bliss made one, O Savitri.
  
  Return, O child, to thy forsaken earth."
  But Savitri replied, "Thy gifts resist.
  
  --
  Like waves to a swimmer upon infinite seas."
  But Savitri replied to the vague god,
  "Give me back Satyavan, my only lord.
  --
  A constant stream that never is the same."
  But Savitri replied to mighty Death:
  "O dark ironic critic of God's work,

10.04_-_The_Dream_Twilight_of_the_Earthly_Real, #Savitri, #Sri Aurobindo, #Integral Yoga
  I, Death, am the gate of immortality."
  But Savitri answered to the sophist God:
  "Once more wilt thou call Light to blind Truth's eyes,
  --
  
  The great voice surging cried to Savitri:
  "Because thou knowst the wisdom that transcends
  --
  Respect the calm of great established things."
  But Savitri replied to the huge god:
  "What is the calm thou vauntst, O Law, O Death?
  --
  
  Leave then thy dead, O Savitri, and live."
  The Woman answered to the mighty Shade,
  --
  And earthly life become the life divine."
  Then Death the last time answered Savitri:
  "If Truth supreme transcends her shadow here
  --
  And love and joy overtake fleeing Time."
  And Savitri looked on Death and answered not.
  
  --
  The twilight realm passed fading from their souls,
  And Satyavan and Savitri were alone.

  Truth, but of the Sun. But the Veda describes rather the Sun as following the path of Usha and this would be the natural image suggested to an observer of the physical Dawn. Moreover, even if the phrase did not clearly in other passages mean the path of the Truth, the psychological significance would still intervene; for the sense would then be that the dawn of illumination follows the path of the True or the Lord of the Truth, Surya
  Savitri.

   aditayah., adityaso. Mitra and Varuna, we must remember, are powers of Surya Savitri, the Lord of the Light and the Truth.
  
  And the third verse runs, "May the Angirases who hasten through to the goal move in their travelling to the bliss of the divine Savitri; and that (bliss) may our great Father, he of the sacrifice, and all the gods becoming of one mind accept in heart." Turan.yavo naks.anta ratnam devasya savitur iyanah.. It is quite clear therefore that the Angirases are travellers to the light and truth of the solar deity from which are born the luminous cows they wrest from the Panis and to the bliss which, as we always see, is founded on that light and truth. It is clear also that this journey is a growing into the godhead, into the infinite being (aditayah. syama), said in this hymn (verse 2) to come by the growth of the peace and bliss through the action in us of
  Mitra, Varuna and the Vasus who protect us in the godhead and the mortality.
  --
  We have therefore acquired the right to apply the sense we have discovered to other passages such as the hymn of
  Vasishtha which I shall next examine, VII.76, although to a superficial glance it would seem to be only an ecstatic picture of the physical Dawn. This first impression, however, disappears when we examine it; we see that there is a constant suggestion of a profounder meaning and, the moment we apply the key we have found, the harmony of the real sense appears. The hymn commences with a description of that rising of the Sun into the light of the supreme Dawn which is brought about by the gods and the Angirases. "Savitri, the god, the universal Male, has ascended into the Light that is immortal and of all the births, jyotir amr.tam visvajanyam; by the work (of sacrifice) the eye of the gods has been born (or, by the will-power of the gods vision has been born); Dawn has manifested the whole world (or, all that comes into being, all existences, visvam bhuvanam)." This immortal light into which the sun rises is elsewhere called the true light, r.tam jyotih., Truth and immortality being constantly associated in the Veda. It is the light of the knowledge given by the seven-headed thought which Ayasya discovered when he became visvajanya, universal in his being; therefore this light too is called visvajanya, for it belongs to the fourth plane, the turyam svid of Ayasya, from which all the rest are born and by whose truth all the rest are manifested in their large universality and no longer in the limited terms of the falsehood and crookedness.

  A NOTE ON LOVE AND DEATH
  The story of Ruru and Pramadvura - I have substituted a name more manageable to the English tongue - her death in the forest by the snake and restoration at the price of half her husband's life is told in the Mahabharata. It is a companion legend to the story of Savitri but not being told with any poetic skill or beauty has remained generally unknown. I have attempted in this poem to bring it out of its obscurity. For full success, however, it should have had a more faithfully Hindu colouring, but it was written a score of years ago when I had not penetrated to the heart of the Indian idea and its traditions, and the shadow of the Greek underworld and Tartarus with the sentiment of life and love and death which hangs about them has got into the legendary framework of the Indian Patala and hells. The central idea of the narrative alone is in the Mahabharata; the meeting with
  Kama and the descent into Hell were additions necessitated by the poverty of incident in the original story.

2.22_-_Vijnana_or_Gnosis, #unset, #G. W. F. Hegel, #Philosophy
  
  If we would describe the gnosis as it is in its own awareness, not thus imperfectly as it is to us in contrast with our own reason and intelligence, it is hardly possible to speak of it except in figures and symbols. And first we must remember that the gnostic level, Mahat, Vijnana, is not the supreme plane of our consciousness but a middle or link plane. Interposed between the triune glory of the utter Spirit, the infinite existence, consciousness and bliss of the Eternal and our lower triple being and nature, it is as if it stood there as the mediating, formulated, organising and creative wisdom, power and joy of the Eternal. In the gnosis Sachchidananda gathers up the light of his unseizable existence and pours it out on the soul in the shape and power of a divine knowledge, a divine will and a divine bliss of existence. It is as if infinite light were gathered up into the compact orb of the sun and lavished on all that depends upon the sun in radiances that continue for ever. But the gnosis is not only light, it is force; it is creative knowledge, it is the self-effective truth of the divine Idea. This idea is not creative imagination, not something that constructs in void, but light and power of eternal substance, truth-light full of truth-force; and it brings out what is latent in being, it does not create a fiction that never was in being. The ideation of the gnosis is radiating light-stuff of the consciousness of the eternal Existence; each ray is a truth. The will in the gnosis is a conscious force of eternal knowledge; it throws the consciousness and substance of being into infallible forms of truth-power, forms that embody the idea and make it faultlessly effective, and it works out each truth-power and each truth-form spontaneously and rightly according to its nature. Because it carries this creative force of the divine Idea, the Sun, the lord arid symbol of the gnosis, is described in the Veda as the Light which is the father of all things, Surya Savitri, the Wisdom-Luminous who is the bringer-out into manifest existence. This creation is inspired by the divine delight, the eternal Ananda; it is full of the joy of its own truth and power, it creates in bliss, creates out of bliss, creates that which is blissful. Therefore the world of the gnosis, the supramental world is the true and the happy creation, rtam, bhadram, since all in it shares in the perfect joy that made it. A divine radiance of undeviating knowledge, a divine power of unfaltering will and a divine ease of unstumbling bliss are the nature or prakriti of the soul in supermind, in vijnana. The stuff of the gnostic or supramental plane is made of the perfect absolutes of all that is here imperfect and relative and its movement of the reconciled interlockings and happy fusions of all that here are opposites. For behind the appearance of these opposites are their truths and the truths of the eternal are not in conflict with each other; our mind's and life's opposites transformed in the supermind into their own true spirit link together and are seen as tones and colourings of an eternal Reality and everlasting Ananda. supermind or gnosis is the supreme Truth, the supreme Thought, the supreme Word, the supreme Light, the supreme Will-Idea; it is the inner and outer extension of the Infinite who is beyond Space, the unfettered Time of the Eternal who is timeless, the supernal harmony of all absolutes of the Absolute.

  I am going downstairs on the 21st, for Saraswati Puja. 9 They have prepared a folder with a long
  quotation from Savitri and five photos of my face taken from five different angles.
  The title of the folder is the line from Savitri that gave me the most overpowering experience of the
  entire book (because, as I told you, as I read, I would LIVE the experiences - reading brought,
  --
  would receive a folder containing five photographs of Mother.
  10Savitri, Vol. 29, XI.I.702.
  
  --
  (silence)
  But all of that is wonderfully, accurately expressed and EXPLAINED in Savitri. Only you must know
  how to read it! The entire last part, from the moment she goes to seek Satyavan in the realm of Death
  --
  terrestrial labor... it is my experience EXACTLY.
  Savitri is really a condensation, a concentration of the universal Mother - the eternal universal
  Mother, Mother of all universes from all eternity - in an earthly personality for the Earth's salvation.
  --
  down to earth. Everything is there! He hasn't forgotten a single detail to make it easy to understand -
  for someone who knows how to understand. And it is when Savitri reaches the earth that Satyavan
  regains his full human stature.
  --
  luminous, indisputable - but unfortunately there was no tape recorder!
  It was about the Word, the primal sound. Sri Aurobindo speaks of it in Savitri: the essence of the
  Word and how it will express itself, how it will bring in the possibility of a supramental expression that
  --
  Yes. While speaking, you see, I went back to the origin of sound (Sri Aurobindo describes it very
  clearly in Savitri: the origin of sound, the moment when what we called 'the Word' becomes a sound).
  So I had a kind of perception of the essential sound before it becomes a material sound. And I said,
  --
  You see, all the things that have been told, even all the things Sri Aurobindo has said (he has said
  the most in Savitri), all that is necessarily... (what can it be called?) mental, the super-intellectual
  spiritualized mind. But it is not THAT! It's a form, it's an image, it's not... the concrete fact.
  --
  How is your work going?
  Tomorrow I'll begin on 'Savitri.'
  O lucky man! What joy!
  You know, Savitri is an exact description - not literature, not poetry (although the form is very
  poetical) - an exact description, step by step, paragraph by paragraph, page by page; as I read, I relived
  it all. Besides, many of my own experiences that I recounted to Sri Aurobindo seem to have been
  incorporated into Savitri. He has included many of them - Nolini says so; he was familiar with the first
  version Sri Aurobindo wrote long ago, and he said that an enormous number of experiences were added
  --
  doing?
  I'm re-reading 'Savitri.'
  178See 'Prayers of the Consciousness of the Cells,' Agenda I, pp. 337-350.
  --
  as it were, to the whole set of laws governing the Manifestation - well, that only comes... at the very
  last second. Sri Aurobindo has expressed this so well in Savitri, so well! At least three times in the
  book he has expressed this Will that abolishes all established laws, all of them, and all the
  --
  powerful, more conscious. It gives a sort of sanction to the realization. Sri Aurobindo writes of this in
  Savitri - Savitri lives always on earth, with the soul of the earth, to make the whole earth progress as
  quickly as possible. Well, when the time comes and things on earth are ready, then the divine Mother
  --
  the individual terrestrial atmosphere.
  Let's take Savitri, which is very explicit on this: the universal Mother is universally present and at
  work in the universe, but the earth is where concrete form is given to all the work to be done to bring
  --
  You understand, if I were British and writing in English, I could try to do a book on Sri Aurobindo
  using 'Savitri' alone. With quotations from Savitri one can maintain a certain poetical rhythm, and
  this rhythm can generate an opening. But in French it isn't possible - how could it be translated?
  --
  squeezed into a few lines, or reduced to a skeleton.
  This analogy between the ancient form of spiritual revelations and Savitri, this blossoming into poetry
  of his prophetic revelation is... what could be called the most exceptional part of his work. And what is
  remarkable (I saw him do it) is that he changed Savitri: he went along changing it as his experience
  changed.
  --
  There were whole sections he redid completely, which were like descriptions of what I had told him
  of my own experiences. Nolini said this. When I recently reread Savitri, some phrases were very
  familiar and I said to Nolini, 'How odd, these are almost my very words!' And he replied, 'But this has
  --
  Synthesis of Yoga,223 but when he was asked to do so, he replied, 'No, I don't want to go down to that
  mental level'! Savitri comes from somewhere else altogether. And I think that Savitri is the most
  important thing to speak about.
  From time to time I use a line from 'Savitri,' placing it in the book like an open window. That's all I
  can do.

  A line from Savitri constantly haunts or assails me - it's when the Lord proposes that she come live

  chosen some passages from Savitri (the choice isn't hers, it's A.'s and P.'s and made intelligently), so
  she gives me these passages one by one, neatly typed (which is easier for my eyes). It's from the Book
  I, Canto IV.
  And then, as I expected, the experience is rather interesting.... I had noticed, while reading Savitri,

  can by miracle change."19

  Here we come to the great problem of the road we travel, the eternal Road Sri Aurobindo refers to

  These people could very easily lure me: for a long time they have been asking me to read them the
  whole of Savitri - quite a work! But this [translation] work is irresistible.
  So, in fact (the trouble is, my notebook won't be thick enough!), in fact I would like to translate all

  But in Savitri's case... (I didn't look after it, you know), he had around him Purani, that Chinmayi,
  29The last chapter of the Synthesis of Yoga: "Towards the Supramental Time Vision."
  
  and... (what's his name?) Nirod - they all swarmed around him. So I didn't look after Savitri. I read
  Savitri two years ago, I had never read it before. And I am so glad! Because I read it at the time I could
  understand it - and I realized that none of those people had understood ONE BIT of it. Both things at

  This is very good, a very good indication.

  This Savitri is wonderful, he foresaw everything, saw everything, everything, absolutely everything,

  which must come before this supreme Love (which is beyond the Manifestation and the

  Did you notice this figure?... There's a line in Savitri (I can't quote exactly): "Wherever Nature is, He

  September 28, 1963
  Do you remember Savitri's debate with Death ["The Debate of Love and Death"]?... According to it, Sri
  Aurobindo seems to be saying that Disorder arose when Life entered Matter.

  he says something, you tend to consider the problem!
  I don't know, I haven't reached the end of Savitri yet. Because I notice (rereading it after the space
  of a few months, barely two years) that it's altogether something else than the first time I read it.

  Yes. Its effect is like an electrical discharge that shakes up the tamas, shakes up inertia.

  In fact, in Savitri, Sri Aurobindo went through all the worlds, and it so happens that I am following
  that without knowing it (because I never remember - thank God, I really thank heaven! - I asked the
  Lord to take away my mental memory and He took it away entirely, so I am not weighed down), but I
  follow that description in Savitri without mentally knowing the sequence of the worlds, and these last
  few days... I was in that Muddle of Falsehood (I told you last time), it was really painful, and I was

  easy to topple over... the slightest thing and you can still topple over into Falsehood, into Deformation."
  And yesterday, I had in my hands a passage from Savitri that was brought to me - it's a marvel, but...
  it's so sad, so miserable, oh, I could have cried (I don't easily cry).
  --
  Mind that has Falsehood in it: there's Falsehood in Life, in Life itself. In the completely inanimate, I
  don't know.... Maybe it came with Life? (According to Savitri, the origin of Falsehood lies in Life.) But

  It's on the way.

  Me! I am no poet!
  The first poetry I was able to appreciate in my life was Savitri. Previously, I was closed. To me it

  noted down from memory by a young disciple.)
  --
  a passage from the same
  text on "Savitri":
  
  --
  It's not his handwriting, but not mine either! It's a sort of combination of both.... I had the same
  experience years ago, very soon after that "illness," when I began translating Savitri here.39 One day,
  while writing, it was he who wrote; it was his handwriting, that is, nearly illegible! So (laughing) I said,

  And your translation of "Savitri"?
  But I have work to do. I no longer have time. I no longer have time to do anything.
  It's a pity.
  That is to say, now F. has taken it into her head to translate Savitri with me (all she does is look in the
  dictionary when I need a word), right from the start, and I've reached the second page! It'll take ten or

  Bengalis in those days were very fond of weeping. I think it was Romesh Dutt who translated Savitri from the Mahabharata and portrayed her as weeping, whereas in the Mahabharata there is no trace of it. Even when her heart was being sawed in two not a single tear appeared in her eyes. By making her weep he took away the very strength of which Savitri is built.

  NIRODBARAN: What is your symbolism?
  SRI AUROBINDO: Well, Satyavan, whom Savitri marries, is the symbol of the
  soul descended into the Kingdom of Death. Savitri, who is, as you know, the
  Goddess of Divine Light Knowledge, comes down to redeem Satyavan from
  Death's grasp. Aswapati, the father of Savitri, is the Lord of Energy. Dyumatsena is "the one who has the shining hosts". It is all inner movement,
  nothing much as regards outward action.
  The poem opens with the Dawn. Savitri awakes on the day of destiny,
  the day when Satyavan has to die. The birth of Savitri is a boon of the
  Supreme Goddess given to Aswapati. Aswapati is the Yogi who seeks the

  profusely. That is highly amusing. Bengalis at one time were very fond of
  weeping. I think it was Romesh Dutt who translated the story of Savitri from

  a single tear came to her eyes. By making her weep, he took away the very
  strength on which Savitri was built.
  PURANI: He wanted to make the story realistic, perhaps.

  SATYENDRA: Is it some new poetry you are writing now, Sir?
  SRI AUROBINDO: No, it is Savitri.
  NIRODBARAN: Is it not finished yet?

  and now in 1939both times war. (Laughter)
  SRI AUROBINDO: Savitri also contains war, but it is imaginative. So I suppose the opposing forces may not object.
  SATYENDRA: What would that commentator Girija make of it?

  While you perform the worship of the shakti (inferior Goddesses) how should the Savitri (holy verse, Gayatri) continue on the earth? Sin is produced. Do not seize and punish it.
