“There is a need within the soul of man
The splendours of the surface never sate;
For life and mind and their glory and debate
Are the slow prelude of a vaster theme…”
Thus ends this powerful canto that in a way summarises Savitri’s work and mission and brings us in touch with the Divine Mother’s being.

“… The seal of tears, the bond of ignorance,
He turned to find that wide world-failure’s cause.

“Speaking of Maheshwari, Sri Aurobindo writes: “To the wise she gives a greater and more luminous wisdom; those that have vision she admits to her counsels.” Nolini Kanta Gupta was perhaps the first of the few whom the Mother so admitted to her counsels.”
When the love goes towards the Divine, there is still this ordinary human element in it. There is the call for a return and if the return does not seem to come, the love may sink; there is the self-interest, the demand for the Divine as a giver of all that the human being wants […] But the true love for the Divine is in its fundamental nature not of this kind, but psychic and spiritual.
