Savitri Book 7, Canto 1, Part 2

Savitri is married to Satyavan and now she lives with him in the sylvan forest hermitage. The clear sunny skies of summer become covered by the Monsoon rain clouds and the voice of mighty storms echos through the great forest. Savitri lives in the sound of fateful thunder and sobbing rain. Her rapture and happiness turn to grief as she remembers Narad’s prediction and the day of Satyavan’s death draws near. She lives a life of inner self-torture and ever-increasing love, doing everything she can to be closer and closer to Satyavan. She only wants to love him and to receive his love. Her grief becomes the food of mighty love; it fills her whole life. Her soul is hidden behind her sorrowing heart and helpless will. Sri Aurobindo writes, “Still veiled from her is the silent being within who sees life pass with unmoved eyes, supports the sorrow of mind and heart and bears in human breasts the world and fate.”
