Canto V Summary
In this Canto we see Seer King Aswapati experiencing something new and unprecedented in the history of Yoga. In response to his new aspiration that wants perfection here upon earth, in the material frame itself, he experiences a Descent from Above that carries him into deeper and higher states until he reaches right at the apex of the spiritual Mind. There arriving at the borders of the Overmind or the gates of the Supermind he is given a glimpse of the Splendours of the Spirit hidden in the higher hemisphere of existence. He is now ready to launch into a new journey towards the Unknown.
