Savitri Book Two Canto Fourteen

Aswapati has arrived at the Impersonal but where is the Person who hides behind the Impersonal? Where is the Godhead of the Gita, the Purushottama who is beyond the personal and the impersonal, the universal Godhead and the World Mother? Where is the passage to the yet greater Beyond? Even as Aswapati stands on these pure and bare summits an answer comes to his seeking and he is pulled inwards as it were into the secret tunnel that leads to the World Soul. There he discovers a most blissful state where Peace and Rapture are joined in a single Being, a beauty and wonder and charm of the Cosmic Divine. Here is the place where the souls return after death, enter a state of reconstituting sleep for a while and then return back to continue their adventure of Time and Space. Here he meets the cosmic Divine in His twin poise of Iswara and Iswari whose trance of blissful union sustains the world. Here he has the most enthralling vision of the World Mother, whose steps determine the journeying of the stars and the unfolding of Time. The Divine Mother as the Cosmic Power knows the secret aspiration in Aswapati’s heart. Seeing her Aswapati just throws himself at Her Feet and surrenders completely at Her Feet. It is She who then opens the gates to the Beyond for Aswapati.
