Savitri has asked four boons for Earth and Man. The Supreme indeed grants these boons that will fulfill through passage of Time. The Supreme promises that the Earth will be saved and matter divinised and earthly life become the life Divine. (concluding part of the class).
Savitri has asked four boons for Earth and Man. The Supreme indeed grants these boons that will fulfill through passage of Time. The Supreme promises that the Earth will be saved and matter divinised and earthly life become the life Divine.
What we discover here is the Divine Love and Compassion that dwells in Savitri’s heart who is none else but an incarnation of the Divine Mother. We are also given a quick glimpse of the challenges of transformation especially with regard to the resistance in man. Eventually she ascends to Her own Home and asks for the boons from the Supreme.
Savitri has crossed the last stronghold of Death. The mask of terror and grief is torn and Savitri enters the very Home of Truth. It is then that she is face to face with the Divine who stands behind creation hidden behind all action and movement. A long dialogue follows where Savitri seeks for the redemption of earth.
We have a dialogue between Savitri and the Supreme who tries to dissuade her from bringing down the Divine upon Earth. But Savitri remains true and steadfast to her work and mission.
This is the first part of a talk based on Savitri Book 11. The background of this Canto is discussed as also the description of the higher worlds as are contained in the Higher Hemisphere. These worlds are not subject to dissolution through Time.
Dr Alok Pandey talks about significance of April 24, 1920, when The Mother returns to Pondicherry, never to leave it again. About this date The Mother wrote : “The anniversary of my return to Pondicherry, which was the tangible sign of the sure Victory over the adverse forces.”

“Our souls remember when the act is done,
That it was fated. Aslaug, now for us
The world begins again, — our world, beloved,
Since once more we — who since the stars were formed
Playing the game of games by Odin’s will
Have met and parted — parted, meet again
