Aswapati wants to know the cause of failure of all the past attempts and efforts of humanity. For this he must go to the very root of things, feel the poison sting of that hides in the Dark Abyss.
Who are Aswapati and Savitri? Before proceeding further we take a look at Sri Aurobindo and the Mother and their Avataric personality and work.
This greater life is a transitional zone, an intermediary space through which the soul must travel for its further ascension.
Ascending further Aswapati encounters the higher vital worlds that serve as an intermediary link between the lower vital and the mental worlds.
There is in us a spark of God that takes in and grows through all experiences, however dark they may seem, for its growth towards God and Light.
The movements of lower nature are only a provisional scheme, a spring board for a still higher ascent of life.
Such is the strong grip of this little life upon us that we remain strongly tied to it. Our being centered around our little desires and moved by these forces we miss the real purpose of life.
It is the handiwork of these forces of lower vital world that makes our life so short and insignificant.
