emerged from the mud, the world-misery to breathe the sovereign plenitude and enter the
               supreme Ananda. He crossed all these realms, went through the consequences, suffered
               and endured physically what one cannot imagine. Nobody till today has suffered like him.
               He accepted suffering to transform suffering into the joy of union with the Supreme. It is
               something unique and incomparable in the history of the world. It is something that has
               never happened, he is the first to have traced the path in the Unknown, so that we may
               be able to walk with certitude towards the Supermind. He has made the work easy for us.
               Savitri is his whole Yoga of Transformation, and this Yoga appears now for the first time in
               the earth-consciousness.

               Beyond comparison
                   And I think that man is not yet ready to receive it. It is too high and too vast for him. He
               cannot understand it, grasp it, for it is not by the mind that one can understand Savitri. One
               needs spiritual experiences in order to understand and assimilate it. The more one advances
               on the path of Yoga, the more one assimilates and the better. No, it is something which will
               be appreciated only in the future, it is the poetry of tomorrow of which he has spoken in
               The Future Poetry. It is too subtle, too refined,—it is not in the mind or through the mind, it
               is in meditation that Savitri is revealed.
                   And men have the audacity to compare it with the work of Virgil or Homer and to find
               it inferior. They do not understand, they cannot understand. What do they know? Nothing
               at all. And it is useless to try to make them understand. Men will know what it is, but in a
               distant future. It is only the new race with a new consciousness which will be able to under-
               stand. I assure you there is nothing under the blue sky to compare with Savitri. It is the mys-
               tery of mysteries. It is the super-epic, it is super-literature, super-poetry, super-vision, it is a
               super-work even if one considers the number of lines he has written. No these human words
               are not adequate to describe Savitri. Yes, one needs superlatives, hyperbolas to describe it.
               It is a hyper-epic. No, words express nothing of what Savitri is; at least I do not find them.
               It is of immense value — spiritual value and all other values; it is eternal in the subject, and
               infinite in its appeal, miraculous in its mode and power of execution; it is a unique thing, the
               more you come in contact with this, the higher will you be uplifted. Ah, truly it is something!
               It is most beautiful thing he has left for man, the highest possible. What is it? When will
               man know it? When is he going to lead a life of truth? When is he going to accept this in his
               life? This yet remains to be known.

               Guru and guide of Yoga
                   My child, everyday you are going to read Savitri; read properly, with the right attitude,
               concentrating a little before opening the pages and trying to keep the mind as empty as
               possible, absolutely without a thought. The direct road is by ‘the heart’. I tell you, if you try
               to concentrate really with this aspiration in a very short time, perhaps in a few days. What
               you cannot do normally, you can do with the help of Savitri. Try and you will see how very
