The Mighty Mother Awakes pp 572-574 (SH 284)

In that moment of deep crisis, the mighty Mother awakes in the being of Savitri. She takes charge and control of her body and mind, thought and will. She is now prepared to confront the enigma of the Night embodied in Death.

Moment of Crisis and the Strength Within pp 571-572 (SH 283)

We carry in our depths the strength to face any challenge that falls as our share of Destiny. In fact moments of crisis are also moments when we can discover some utmost source of strength within us. Thus is it for Savitri who in this moment of utter despair taps into her highest and deepest source of strength.

The Moment of Death pp 563-566 (SH 282)

The moment has arrived and Satyavan falls while felling a tree. Death has arrived unceremoniously but Savitri still holds him close and would not let go of her clasp. Even death must hesitate and wait until she loosens her clasp around Satyavan.

The Cosmic Spirit and Oneness, pp. 556-557 (SH 280)

Now Savitri arrives at the ultimate stages of her yoga whence She discovers and identifies herself with who She is in her inmost Truth, – the Divine Mother Herself. Though Transcendent and Universal, She has assumed an individual form for the work She has come to do.

Unity of God and Creation, pp. 554-556 (SH 279)

She emerges into the state of Unity where God and Creation are true and one. Upon the experience of illusion develops another, deeper state that reveals to her the secret of creation. It is this Supramental state in which the unity of God and creation is experienced.

A Vast Impersonality, pp. 552-554 (SH 278)

What could be said of the personality of one whose ego has been dissolved? The person becomes a vast field, an illimitable centre for God’s Work. His speech and his silence help the toiling world. Such is the state of Savitri as described here.

Beyond Being and Non-Being, pp. 547-549 (SH 276)

Savitri ascends further in her journey. She goes beyond the Manifest and the Unmanifest, beyond Existence, beyond Being and Non-being towards the sheer Absolute. These are of course very profound spiritual realisations that cannot be grasped by the human mind.

Rising Out of the Mind, pp. 542-544 (SH 274)

Savitri has now studied her thoughts and learnt to master them. She has freed herself from the sense of an I that claims and appropriates everything as its own. Now she must take a further step and climb beyond the Mind to the Silence

The Mind-machine, pp. 541-542 (SH 273)

Savitri observes how the mind works incessantly, churning thoughts constantly. She sees that though man’s ego claims everything and believes itself the doer, it is very clearly Nature that does everything. Yet there is something of his own, and it is his soul’s consent.

Behind the Surfaces of Life and Thought, pp. 540-541 (SH 272)

As Savitri looks within, She also becomes aware of the various types of thoughts and feelings and impulses that hide behind the neat façade of life. She enters a whole field of the unseen and the unheard, a new seeing and hearing, an awakening of the subtle senses in the hidden domains of existence.
