THE MOTHER’S SAVITRI: Book 2 Canto 11


The Mother Reads Selections from Savitri by Sri Aurobindo

 

Book 2. The Book Of The Traveller Of The Worlds

Canto 11. The Kingdoms and Godheads of the Greater Mind.

His privilege regained of shadowless sight
The Thinker entered the immortals’ air
And drank again his pure and mighty source.
[p. 263]
* * *
In gleaming clarities of amethyst air
The chainless and omnipotent Spirit of Mind
Brooded on the blue lotus of the Idea.
[p. 264]
* * *
A triple realm of ordered thought came first,
A small beginning of immense ascent:
. . .
The mighty wardens of the ascending stair
Who intercede with the all-creating Word,
There waited for the pilgrim heaven-bound soul;
Holding the thousand keys of the Beyond
They proffered their knowledge to the climbing mind
And filled the life with Thought’s immensities.
[pp. 264; 265]
* * *
In front of the ascending epiphany
World-Time’s enjoyers, favourites of World-Bliss,
. . .
Creators of Matter by hid stress of Mind
Whose subtle thoughts support unconscious Life
And guide the fantasy of brute events,
Stood there, a race of young keen-visioned Gods,
King-children born on Wisdom’s early plane,
Taught in her school world-making’s mystic play.
[p. 266]
* * *
Above stood ranked a subtle archangel race
With larger lids and looks that searched the unseen.
[p. 268]
* * *
In a sublimer and more daring soar
To the wide summit of the triple stairs
Bare steps climbed up like glowing rocks of gold
Burning their way to a pure absolute sky.
[p. 271]
