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.
Savitri experiences the all-negating Void Supreme in which there is no room for name and form. It is the mystic Nihil that cancels self and world. In this state all appears as illusory, as if shadowlike figures animated for a brief passing show.
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
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.
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.
Thoughts are vehicles of states of consciousness. They are only formed in our brain but there origin is in the cosmic field. With Savitri they are uplifted by the soul and thereby transfigured.
In her deep meditation Savitri receives the Command for self-annulment so that all in her being may be one with God. So she sits, stepping back from form and name, a student and witness of her inner being.
The voice of Night drew a response from the heights. This greater voice cautions Savitri as also reveals to her the great secret that will enable her to conquer or rather be conquered entirely and utterly by the greater Truth Above.
As Savitri sits in a felicitous state having discovered her secret soul, she hears the voice of Night. It paints a dismal picture of life and creation thereby discouraging any effort to make it beautiful and divine.
Savitri has reached the stage of individual perfection, with the emergence of her secret soul governing her nature completely. But now a greater work awaits her. It is the perfection of the human race.
With the awakening of the secret Soul and the descent of the Divine Shakti, there is a reversal and a reorientation of human nature towards the Divine. The centers in the subtle body, known as chakras, open under the pressure of the Higher Consciousness.
There is a beautiful description of the psychic being and its work and purpose. What follows next is the awakening of the Kundalini Shakti that lies coiled within us.
Pressing further, Savitri plunges deep within her heart. There she discovers her psychic being and through that door her central being that has governed her journey through many lives. The nature of the soul and the identification with it are described here.
Persevering in her search Savitri passes beyond the three Madonnas towards the soul’s secret cave hidden within the heart of man. All that she had known so far seemed now null and void, a littleness before the greatness of the Divine Presence within that is drawing near.
