In the previous Cantos we are told that by the power of Intuition, the Seer-King Aswapati discovered, “A Secret knowledge masked as Ignorance.”
Indeed this knowledge can only come as our consciousness is more and more intuitivised. One cannot arrive at this knowledge by studying and analyzing the surface phenomenon by our surface mind and its limited operations. One cannot arrive at this knowledge by analyzing the sensory data alone. A higher light, a deeper seeing must emerge to lead us to the doorway of this secret knowledge hidden in the heart of creation. That is why it is secret since it cannot be arrived at by the senses and the mind.
In this canto we are given a glimpse of this secret knowledge discovered by the yogi and seer Ashwapati.
