Guiding Light of The Month

Tell me, wilt Thou grant me the marvellous power to give birth to this dawn in expectant hearts, to awaken the consciousness of men to Thy sublime presence, and in this bare and sorrowful world awaken a little of Thy true Paradise? What happiness, what riches, what terrestrial powers can equal this wonderful gift! - The Mother

Savitri

Here first she met on the uncertain earth
The one for whom her heart had come so far
Attracted as in heaven star by star,
They wondered at each other and rejoiced
And wove affinity in a silent gaze.


A moment passed that was eternity’s ray,
An hour began, the matrix of new Time.

(Savitri, Book 5, Canto 2)

********************

Come nearer to me from thy car of light
On this green sward disdaining not our soil.
For here are secret spaces made for thee
Whose caves of emerald long to screen thy form.
Wilt thou not make this mortal bliss thy sphere?
Descend, O Happiness, with thy moon-gold feet,
Enrich earth’s floors upon whose sleep we lie.
O my bright beauty’s princess, Savitri,
By my delight and thy own joy compelled
Enter my life, thy chamber and thy shrine.

O Satyavan, I have heard thee and I know;
I know that thou and only thou art he.”
Then down she came from her high carven car
Descending with a soft and faltering haste;
Her many-hued raiment glistening in the light
Hovered a moment over the wind-stirred grass,
Mixed with a glimmer of her body’s ray
Like lovely plumage of a settling bird.

(Savitri, Book 5, Canto 3)

*********************

And nothing happens in the cosmic play
But at its time and in its foreseen place.

(Savitri, Book 5, Canto 1)
