Responding to the one-pointed aspiration of Aswapati to bring down here a greater diviner world, the Divine Mother appears on the threshold of his subtle yogic vision and envelops him.
Here all is consciously linked to all in a matrix of spiritual oneness. It is a marvellous creation, the original plan or blueprint of creation before it fell into ignorance and error and division and pain.
Aswapati is led into new Life based on Unity and diversity. Here all is consciously linked to all in a matrix of spiritual oneness. All here is centred around Truth and Light and Peace and Harmony and Bliss of the Divine Mother.
Aswapati experiences the nearness of the wonderful Presence of the Divine Mother who takes into Herself world and nature and soul. She is the key to resolving the enigma of the Night and the paradox of creation.
Aswapati stands at the doors of the Unknowable. The Unknowable cannot be known by the Mind. It can be known if It so chooses to reveal Itself to us. One has to wait with endless patience, wait upon the Grace at the peaks of creation.
The doors of the Ineffable have been opened for Aswapati by the Grace of the Divine Mother. He has become one with the Cosmic Being, a universal personality who is now part of the first seers who guide creation on its destined paths.
This talk is based on the last part of Book Two Canto Fourteen where Aswapati is face to face with the World Mother
This talk is based on a portion of Savitri, Book 2 Canto 14 which describes briefly the process of rebirth.
This Canto will be covered in three parts, this is the first one.
This talk is a summary of Book Two Canto Thirteen of Savitri. Here cease the limits of Mind. All is plunged in the nirvana of a vast impersonality, formless, causeless, a state of escape into vacant Nothingness. It is not the state of pure Existence but of Its reflection in the mind substance.
This talk is a summary of Book Two Canto Twelve of Savitri. Climbing through the summit of Thought Aswapati now enters the realm of Ideas where the forces of Truth are unleashed like rays as phalanx from the body of Light.
This talk is a summary of Book Two Canto Eleven of Savitri. Aswapati now leaves the limits of the labouring little mind and enters into a wider and more luminous domain.
A new journey begins, a new mountain climb. Aswapati has moved out of the vital worlds, seen its heights, sounded its abysses. Now he starts his climb through the mental worlds.
Here Aswapati is moving through the Paradise of Life-Gods. It is a state of perpetual joy. To such a warrior soul this comes as a gift and a temporary rest and release.
It is important to know this world and its workings so that we are vigilant in our journey towards the eternal Truth and Light and Peace and Beauty and Bliss. A Wisdom works hidden and asleep in the heart of the Night.
Aswapati seeks to know now the reason why life fails to climb beyond a certain level. For this he must plunge into the dark abysses that hold back its flights.
This canto is about an intermediate stage through which evolution passes. It is a stage when higher emotions and imaginations come into play to pull the being out of the bog and mire of the lower vital nature.
Here Sri Aurobindo describes the beings and forces that stand behind the promptings of the lower vital world and their effect upon man.
