hollow, without any deep reality — apart from a few rare exceptions, and these too repre-
               sent only a small fraction of the Savitri is. What grandeur, what amplitude, what reality: it
               is something immortal and eternal he has created. I tell you once again there is nothing like
               it in the whole world. Even if one puts aside the vision of the reality, that is, the essential
               substance which is the heart of the inspiration, and considers only the verses in themselves,
               one will find them unique, of the highest classical kind. What he has created is something
               man cannot imagine. For, everything is there, everything.
                   It may then be said that Savitri is a revelation, it is a meditation, it is a quest of the
               Infinite, the Eternal. If it is read with this aspiration for Immortality, the reading itself will
               serve as a guide to Immortality. To read Savitri is indeed to realise the Divine. Each step of
               Yoga is noted here, including the secret of all other Yogas. Surely, if one sincerely follows
               what is always what is revealed here in each verse one will reach finally the transformation
               of supramental Yoga. It is truly the infallible guide who never abandons you; his support
               is always there for him who wants to follow the path. Each verse of Savitri is like a Mantra
               which surpasses all that man possessed by way of knowledge, and I repeat this, the words
               are expressed and arranged in such a way that the sonority of the rhythm leads you to the
               origin of sound, which is OM.

               Everything is there
                   My child, yes, everything is there: mysticism, occultism, philosophy, the history of evo-
               lution, the history of man, of the Gods, of creation, of Nature. How the universe was cre-
               ated, why, for what purpose, what destiny—all is there. You can find all the answers to all
               your questions therein. Everything is explained, even the future of man and of evolution, all
               that nobody yet knows. He has described it all in beautiful and clear words so that spiritual
               “adventures” who wish to solve the mysteries of the world may understand it more easily.
               But this mystery is well hidden behind the words and lines and one must climb to the re-
               quired level of true consciousness to discover it. All prophecies, all that is going to come is
               presented with a precise and wonderful clarity. Sri Aurobindo gives you here the key to find
               the truth, to discover the consciousness, solve the problem of what the light may penetrate
               there and transform it. He has shown the path, the way to liberate oneself from the igno-
               rance and climb right up to the superconscience; each stage, each plane of consciousness,
               how they can be scaled, how one can cross even the barrier of death and reach immortality.
               You will find the whole journey in detail, and much more yet. It is a real experience — read-
               ing Savitri. All the secrets that man possessed, he has revealed, — as well as that awaits him
               in the future; all thus is found in the depth of Savitri. But one must have the knowledge to
               discover it all, the experience of the conquest of Death. He has noted all the stages, marked
               each step in order to advance integrally in the integral Yoga. ...
                   These  are  experiences  lived  by  him,  realities,  supracosmic  truth.  He  experienced  all
               these as one experiences joy or sorrow, physically. He walked in the darkness of incon-
               science,  even  in  the  neighbourhood  of  death,  endured  the  sufferings  of  perdition,  and
