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.

Savitri, B. II, C. XV

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.

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.
