Book Seven: The Book of Yoga, Canto I: The Joy of Union; the Ordeal of the Foreknowledge of Death and the Heart’s Grief and Pain.
This talk deals with the penultimate portion of Savitri Book Six Canto Two.
The summary of the remaining portion of the Book of Fate.
What then is fate? Is it a tribunal of justice distributing decrees of reward and punishment meted out to the human soul to keep its feet steady in the right direction?
In this canto, Narad the divine sage comes to Aswapati’s palace as Savitri returns from her quest. The fate of Savitri and Satyavan is at once revealed before his subtle vision.
Satyavan and Savitri meet in a moment of the soul. They are wedded before the Sun of Truth in the forest itself. Their soul, the Truth embedded within it, the Divine within, is their witness. Nature has set the stage for this heavenly betrothal.
… coming across the forest verge she meets Satyavan. Here she finds the ideal type of humanity who can be a partner in her game divine.
Here we see the most beautiful and gorgeous description of the place where Savitri and Satyavan meet for the first time.
Savitri ventures out into this wide world, leaving the safety of her father’s palace and searching for the humanity that carries within it the material for the future type. This is her quest, the quest for her partner in this game divine
In seeking her partner and mate, Savitri is also seeking the human type that is best suited for Her work. She must find the humanity ready for being transmuted into the godlike humanity of the future.
This talk takes up the early period of Savitri’s life as she prepares for her work and her mission.
Savitri arrives but unlike the ordinary human birth, this is a conscious birth. She is the Divine Mother who has prepared the body and mind that will be fit and ready to receive her. She brings with her the new possibilities for earth and men.
This talk is based on the concluding portion of Savitri Book Three Canto Four.
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.
