Savitri, B. 2, C. 3, Part 3

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.

In the Atom of a burning Star (2)

"Sometimes I play music, just alone, and suddenly I feel there is a big audience". Violinist Ladislav tells about his spiritual experiences with music and about their importance for the integral paradigm of knowledge. There is almost no attention in emotional evolution, he says, and in the integration of development of the different layers like mental, physical and spiritual development: they have to be harmonized with each other. Ladislav, Vladimir, Nishta, Rod and Natalia get in dialogue about the integral paradigm of knowledge in different areas like education, arts and sciences.

Savitri, B. II, C. III, Part 2

Savitri, Book II, The Book Of The Traveller Of The Worlds, Canto III, The Glory And The Fall Of Life. Part 2, Pages 122 - 127

Sri Aurobindo gives us life's full glory in worlds which are halfway to heaven, but tells us that heaven's joys cannot be earth's because earth is not pure and she has stabled her dreams in matter's courts. King Aswapathy continues to live these high experiences in vision. "Only to be was a supreme delight, life was a happy laughter of the soul and Joy was king with Love for minister."

Savitri, B. 2, C. 2, Part 2

Savitri, Book II, The Book Of The Traveller Of The Worlds, Canto II, The Kingdom Of Subtle Matter, Part 2 - Pages 107 - 111

King Aswapathy is in the first inner world as he climbs the World Stair; The Kingdom Of Subtle Matter. Mother refers to this as 'the subtle physical'. Our own subtle physical is right outside our skin and extends a long way beyond our physical body. Mother often speaks of her experiences in the subtle physical. In this part of the canto Sri Aurobindo speaks of how our material, physical plane of consciousness responds to things which come to us from the subtle physical world and also how we respond to higher things which pass through the subtle physical and are available to our consciousness.

Savitri, Book II, The Book Of The Traveller Of The Worlds, Canto III, The Glory And The Fall Of Life, Part 1, Pages 116 - 122 Answering a greater Nature's troubled call, King Aswapathy ascends out of the Kingdom of Subtle Matter into the next world on the World Stair. He crosses the limits of embodied mind and arrives in a place where Life is free to go everywhere, do everything and be everything. But Life is unsatisfied and unsure of its end here, and the king finds nothing to satisfy his heart. While he walks on uncertain ground, he sees the image of Life's happier state. This dream takes the shape of reality and his vision makes it all its own.

Savitri, Book 2, Canto 2, Part 3

Savitri, Book II, The Book Of The Traveller Of The Worlds, Canto II, The Kingdom Of Subtle Matter, Part 3, Pages 111 - 115

King Aswapathy is moving through the Subtle Physical plane, the first step on the World Stair. His senses are ravished with delight and the king enjoys that fine material paradise, but its limitations can not hold him long. His destiny lay beyond this finer world, which is closest to our material existence. His spirit wants more than being's surfaces. It turned to hidden powers and deeper states, and he looked beyond for greater light. We have some of Sri Aurobindo's diary entries in The Record Of Yoga, showing some of his success in working with his own subtle body and keeping some of the finer substance of the subtle physical plane in his own physical body. The Record Of Yoga is full of references to the subtle physical, but it is not always obvious.

Close Encounters

Anusuya Kumar Ph.D. from School of Culture and Society, Aarhus University, Denmark last night shared with the community an interesting presentation on her intensive research and work on Johannes Hohlenberg (1881-1960) and his encounters with Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. Johannes was a Danish artist and philosopher, and Anu was talking about his journey from Paris to Pondicherry during 1907-1915. Amongst others Anu also entioned the origins of Integral Yoga in the early twentieth-century in Scandinavia Web: Johannes Hohlenberg (1881-1960), a man of the world whose intelligence was outstanding, writer and lecturer, editor of two antroposophical journals, committed representative of threefolding idea in Scandianiva.
