Worlds of Divine Perfection, pp. 325-327 (SH 167)

Savitri Class in Hindi with Alok Pandey
Savitri Book Three: The Book of Divine Mother, Canto Three : The House of the Spirit and the New Creation

As Aswapati enters the Supramental world he discovers that there are many worlds where perfection and oneness is the law of life. Each world manifests some degree of the divine perfection and retains its happy unity with all other worlds of the higher hemisphere or existence that extends from the Supramental to the worlds of True existence, Sat loka.


In this vast outbreak of perfection’s law
Imposing its fixity on the flux of things
He saw a hierarchy of lucent planes
Enfeoffed to this highest kingdom of God-state.
Attuning to one Truth their own right rule
Each housed the gladness of a bright degree,
Alone in beauty, perfect in self-kind,
An image cast by one deep truth’s absolute,
Married to all in happy difference.

These worlds were not divided as worlds of the lower hemisphere but gave freely to each other in a happy interchange. Through this giving they grew in power and strength. Such was the law of these higher worlds. Even the lowest of these worlds expressed this perfection born of oneness.

Each gave its powers to help its neighbours’ parts,
But suffered no diminution by the gift;
Profiteers of a mystic interchange,
They grew by what they took and what they gave,
All others they felt as their own complements,
One in the might and joy of multitude.
Even in the poise where Oneness draws apart
To feel the rapture of its separate selves,
The Sole in its solitude yearned towards the All
And the Many turned to look back at the One.
An all-revealing all-creating Bliss,
Seeking for forms to manifest truths divine,
Aligned in their significant mystery
The gleams of the symbols of the Ineffable
Blazoned like hues upon a colourless air
On the white purity of the Witness Soul.
These hues were the very prism of the Supreme,
His beauty, power, delight creation’s cause.

These worlds of Truth and Beauty and Light existed for play of the Divine Child whose laughter filled them with joy and made each act a marvel of God.

A vast Truth-Consciousness took up these signs
To pass them on to some divine child Heart
That looked on them with laughter and delight
And joyed in these transcendent images
Living and real as the truths they house.
The Spirit’s white neutrality became
A playground of miracles, a rendezvous
For the secret powers of a mystic Timelessness:
It made of Space a marvel house of God,
It poured through Time its works of ageless might,
Unveiled seen as a luring rapturous face
The wonder and beauty of its Love and Force.

The Divine Mother plays there with God as child making the whole universe a toy for His use. All that we experience here is only a distorted shadow of these higher worlds. The real is expressed, here we see only its shadow. All our powers that labour and struggle upon earth, – thought and speech and imagination and emotion found there their divine counterparts.

The eternal Goddess moved in her cosmic house
Sporting with God as a Mother with her child:
To him the universe was her bosom of love,
His toys were the immortal verities.
All here self-lost had there its divine place.
The Powers that here betray our hearts and err,
Were there sovereign in truth, perfect in joy,
Masters in a creation without flaw,
Possessors of their own infinitude.

[Savitri: 325 – 327]
