Savitri, B. III, C. IV, Part 1

C. IV, The Vision And The Boon - Presence and first Response

An Influence has approached the mortal range where the King's conscious, yearning, offered heart is waiting. A boundless Heart is near his longing heart. The Divine Mother, the One he worships, comes into his inner being to respond to his passionate need for her to come and change the earth and man. She already knows everything. Before he can speak, her voice, is heard in the chambers of his offered heart. Here, in the first part of this canto, she tells him that man is still too weak to bear the Infinite's weight, and she asks him to stay on earth and continue his yoga his work to raise mankind. She promises that all things will change in God's transfiguring hour. His response and her reply come in the second part of this canto.

Savitri, B. III, C. III, Part 1

Book III, The Book Of The Divine Mother, Canto III, The House Of The Spirit And The New Creation The Traveller is nearing his goal, but he still feels the resistance of his inconscient base and the ignorant No in the origin of things. Something in his earthly being keeps its kinship with the inconscient. He searches Nature's spaces in his being with heaven's pure cleansing flame and tears out desire. A mighty transformation comes and his nature becomes a movement of the All. The Traveller King stands fulfilled on the worlds highest line and all grows still. A Universal Force awaits the Transcendent's ultimate decree.

Savitri, Book II, The Book Of The Traveller Of The Worlds, Canto XV, The Kingdoms Of The Greater Knowledge

King Aswapathy awakens in the colorless purity of his own soul. All once perceived and lived was far away. He had risen out of the sphere of Mind and he saw the undivided splendor of the Spirit in its complete unity of all things. This canto describes the overmind consciousness and Sri Aurobindo writes that the king scanned the secrets of the overmind. King Aswapathy's finite parts approached their absolutes, his actions framed the movements of the Gods, his will took up the reigns of cosmic Force.

Synthesis of Yoga Pt. 1, Ch. 10

This reading concludes Chapter 10, The Three Modes of Nature. Sri Aurobinido began the chapter outlining precisely what are the three modes, their influence on our nature and our goal to become one with the Divine. In this second half of the chapter he goes on to instruct us that getting rid, rejecting, if that were even possible, what would appear to be holding us back or down, that any attempt at an exclusive resort to sattwa as the sought after highest of the three gunas, seeming to be the way of escape, won't do. As no one of the qualities can prevail by itself against the other two.

Again, the Gita: to stand back in oneself from the action of the of the modes, and to observe as the Witness, seated above the forces of Nature. The Witness looks but neither accepts nor interferes. Achieving a static freedom of the soul, no longer only witness, a dynamic transformaton of the nature takes place.

Savitri, B. III, C. III, Part 3

The House Of The Spirit And The New Creation; Longing For The Divine Mother

The Traveller of the Worlds, King Aswapathy, has reached the Supramental world - the highest consciousness - the goal of all spiritual seeking. But he has not yet attained his personal goal of asking the Divine Mother to come and fix our problems here on the earth plane. The King saw that he was two beings; one being was the part of him that was wide and free, above the world in the Supramental plane; but the other one was his body, struggling and bound, on earth, in mystic sleep, unable to call the Mother. Only the King's heart was left to call Her. The King could see his living, sacrificed and offered heart, conscious and alone, far down below him, like a lamp in night. Extinction could not quench that lonely fire. Accepting bliss as the sole cause of things and refusing the austere joy which none can share, it turned to its far-off source of light and love, and waited for the Word of The Supreme. The introduction to this part of Savitri includes a history of how the King is changed from The Kingdoms and Godheads of The Greater Mind in Canto XI up to the Supermind, and how we will also change.

Savitri, B. III, C. II

B. III, The Book Of The Divine Mother, C. II, The Adoration Of The Divine Mother King Aswapathy has attained the consciousness of the infinite, eternal, sole Supreme Master. He has reached the silence of the Self, but only half God's cosmic work is done. The Divine Mother can now reveal something of herself to his seeking soul, and once he has seen her he only wants to draw her presence and power into all of his being. He wants her healing touch for the suffering world. His soul is freed and given to her alone.

Savitri, B. II, C. XIV

Savitri, Book II, The Book Of The Traveller Of The Worlds, Canto XIV, The World Soul

The great Yogi-King is called by a mysterious sound which is all sounds in turn and yet the same, and he enters a mystic passage to the deep heart of the world. There, where all is soul, he finds the silent soul of all the world, and he sees the fashioning chamber of the worlds where souls return to rest between births. Along a road of pure interior light his soul passes on towards the end which ever begins again. There he sees, for the first time in his long, long journey, the Divine Mother.

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

Savitri, B. III, The Book Of The Divine Mother, C. III, The House Of The Spirit And The New Creation, Part 2, p. 322 - 329

The King has the Supramental Consciousness. He lives in immeasurable and blissful unity. He experiences a new and marvelous creation, rising out of the Spirit, where all are joined by spiritual links and all are the One. Matter is density of Spirit and substance is a resonant harp of Self. All that passes here lives immortal there.

Savitri, B. III, C. I

Savitri, Book III, The Book Of The Divine Mother, Canto I, The Pursuit Of The Unknowable

The Great Yogi-King reached the top of all that can be known, and finds it is not enough. Now he must pursue the Unknowable, He must have the realization of the infinite, eternal, Supreme Master of Creation along with the realization of the Divine Mother. The king reaches a height where he must make a tremendous choice; "All he had been and all towards which he grew must now be left behind or else transform into a self of That which has no name....The separate self must melt or be reborn into a Truth beyond the mind's apeal". Then the yogi-king can realize the One by whom all live, who lives by none.

Synthesis of Yoga

This reading completes Chapter 2 The Status of Knowledge, Part II The Yoga of Integral Knowledge, pages 303 - 307. Sri Aurobindo continues to teach us that God is in us, in everything, and that our whole being ought to demand God. The whole life and body can be satisfied of God.

Knowledge and experience, which we must attain, are primary means of arriving and possessing identity ; it is ourself that we see and experience but are incomplete unless they culminate in identity, living in all our being the supreme Vedntic knowledge: He am I. A supernal unity with the Ineffable. Actually that is the culmination of all divine knowing; that is also the source of all divine delight and divine living.

The status of knowledge then is the aim of this path and when pursued to its end is only a first approach to the ascent which we have to use until the divine doors swing open into the infinite Light.
