The Quest (SVH 36) Book 4 Canto 4


Book Four Canto Four, ‘The Quest’. 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, one who is like her a soul of fire and love, one who seeks to unite heaven and earth, God and world in a single consciousness and being. In the course of her quest, she meets various types of human beings, — ascetics and sages, tapaswis and renunciates. They are seekers after knowledge but the bud of love has not blossomed in their hearts. Love and surrender are the keys that can open the doors of the future that Savitri brings but of this type of humanity she is yet to find one.
