Savitri - 24

Sri Aurobindo's Savitri

Daily Savitri - 24

A lonely splendour from the invisible goal 
Almost was flung on the opaque Inane. 
Once more a tread perturbed the vacant Vasts; 
Infinity's centre, a Face of rapturous calm 
Parted the eternal lids that open heaven; 
A Form from far beatitudes seemed to near. 
Ambassadress twixt eternity and change, 

- Savitri by Sri Aurobindo, Book 1, Canto -1, The Symbol Dawn, Page 4

Sri Aurobindo's epic poem, Savitri, is a symbolic myth that responds to a deeply felt need in the contemporary mind. Not only does it represent a world view that is in harmony with the most recent understanding of scientific reality; but, as a symbol, it penetrates to the essential truth of that reality. It concomitantly describes what is involved in the fulfillment of a spiritually individuated life. This is the goal of Jung's myth of consciousness for our time. Not only is Savitri a vision for individual and collective self-fulfillment, but, as a mantra, it has a directly transformative effect on the inner consciousness. Such a magnificent poem calls for intelligent reflection.
