Savitri, Book II, The Book Of The Traveller Of The Worlds, Canto III, The Glory And The Fall Of Life, Part 3
The great Yogi King continues to have the vision of Life, complete, eternal, blissful and immortal. She is fulfilled in all she is and does. But even with all of his yogic attainments, King Aswapathy cannot enter into Life’s glory. His nature lives too near suffering worlds and he is still bound by his individual thoughts and the dimness of his vision. Then Sri Aurobindo describes Life’s fall when she is called to enter into matter at the time of the crude beginnings of this mortal world when earth was built in the unconscious Void. Here, interned in matter, Life is changed. She is now doomed to feed death with her works. In the next canto the king will have to go deeper into all the worlds of being by traveling deeper into his own inner being.
