She is the alchemist Energy, the absolute Power of God, the supreme Shakti of the Supreme.
Formless and the formed
The Formless and the Formed were joined in her:
Immensity was exceeded by a look,
A Face revealed the crowded Infinite.
In Her was the great reconciling truth between formlessness and form. Her look exceeded immensity and Her Face expressed all the countless possibilities of the Infinite. Sri Aurobindo gves us a glimpse of Her wonderful Divine Form which is a meeting point of formlessness, infinity and immensity in Her shape.
The boundless joy
Incarnating inexpressibly in her limbs
The boundless joy the blind world-forces seek,
Her body of beauty mooned the seas of bliss.
She held within Her limbs all the boundless joy that the world seeks and Her body of beauty was as a moon shining over seas of bliss.
At the head She stands
At the head she stands of birth and toil and fate,
In their slow round the cycles turn to her call;
Alone her hands can change Time’s dragon base.
She stands at the head of birth and toil and fate even as the slow cycles of creation turn to Her call. It is only Her hands that can change the unfolding of Time at its very base. She is the origin, the support and the goal of all the cycles of creation and it is She alone who can change their course.
The golden bridge
Hers is the mystery the Night conceals;
The spirit’s alchemist energy is hers;
She is the golden bridge, the wonderful fire.
She is the alchemist energy of transformation concealed in the mysterious Night slowly transfiguring it into Light. She is the golden bridge, the supreme Fire or the Divine Energy that can transmute all things.
The luminous heart of the Unknown
The luminous heart of the Unknown is she,
A power of silence in the depths of God;
She is the Force, the inevitable Word,
The magnet of our difficult ascent,
The Sun from which we kindle all our suns,
The Light that leans from the unrealised Vasts,
The joy that beckons from the impossible,
The Might of all that never yet came down.
She is the luminous heart of the Unknown, the absolute Power that dwells in the Silence of the One. She is the Force, the ultimate Word of creation, the magnet that draws our souls incessantly upwards. It is with Her Fire that the suns are kindled; Her light leans down from the supreme heights into this mortal world from heights that none can climb; Her joy beckons us from realms impossible even to conceive. She is the ultimate Might that has yet not been born into the human hours. She is the Absolute Power that dwells upon the supreme Heights as well as in the heart of everything.
All Nature dumbly calls to her alone
To heal with her feet the aching throb of life
And break the seals on the dim soul of man
And kindle her fire in the closed heart of things.
Even the dumb prayer of stone and animals reaches Her and responds to them. She alone can break the seals of ignorance laid upon the human soul and light the undying fire in our closed heart.
She is the Supreme Power that alone can change the course of Time and transmute this life of ignorance and pain and mould it into a life of Truth and Bliss and Immortality.
