Dr Alok Pandey and Narad on Savitri (VIDEO)
...this is not a mere allegory, the characters are not personified qualities, but incarnations or emanations of living and conscious Forces with whom we can enter into concrete touch
Dr Alok Pandey and Narad on Savitri (VIDEO)
A heart of silence in the hands of joy Inhabited with rich creative beats A body like a parable of dawn That seemed a niche for veiled divinity Or golden temple-door to things beyond.
Dr Alok Pandey and Narad on Savitri (VIDEO)
A magic leverage suddenly is caught That moves the veiled Ineffable's timeless will: A prayer, a master act, a king idea Can link man's strength to a transcendent Force.
Dr Alok Pandey and Narad on Savitri (VIDEO)
What most she needs, what most exceeds her scope, A Mind unvisited by illusion's gleams, A Will expressive of soul's deity, A Strength not forced to stumble by its speed, Joy that drags not sorrow as its shade.
Dr Alok Pandey and Narad on Savitri (VIDEO)
In the unchanging Silence white and nude, Aloof, resplendent like gold dazzling suns Veiled by the ray no mortal eye can bear, The Spirit's bare and absolute potencies Burn in the solitude of the thoughts of God.
Dr Alok Pandey and Narad on Savitri (VIDEO)
A few shall see what none yet understands; God shall grow up while the wise men talk and sleep; For man shall not know the coming till its hour And belief shall be not till the work is done.
Dr Alok Pandey and Narad on Savitri (VIDEO)
He saw the unshaped thought in soulless forms, Knew Matter pregnant with spiritual sense, Mind dare the study of the Unknowable, Life its gestation of the Golden Child.
Dr Alok Pandey and Narad on Savitri (VIDEO)
The Ideal must be Nature's common truth, The body illumined with the indwelling God, The heart and mind feel one with all that is, A conscious soul live in a conscious world.
Dr Alok Pandey and Narad on Savitri (VIDEO)
Impassive he lived immune from earthly hopes, A figure in the ineffable Witness' shrine Pacing the vast cathedral of his thoughts Under its arches dim with infinity And heavenward brooding of invisible wings.
Dr Alok Pandey and Narad on Savitri (VIDEO)
As when a timeless Eye annuls the hours Abolishing the agent and the act, So now his spirit shone out wide, blank, pure: His wakened mind became an empty slate On which the Universal and Sole could write.
Dr Alok Pandey and Narad on Savitri (VIDEO)
His spirit breathed a superhuman air. The imprisoned deity rent its magic fence. As with a sound of thunder and of seas, Vast barriers crashed around the huge escape.
