On Savitri

Savitri 1

Savitri is a Mantra. It is a Revelation. It can be said that it is a Mantra and a Revelation not from any Plane of the Mind — from the beginning to the end, Savitri bears the Touch of the Supramental Consciousness. Even if some lines are from the plane of the Illumined Mind or even the Overmind, it always bears the Touch of the Supermind. That is why, It is unique, new, uncomparable. There is nothing on earth which is comparable to Savitri, excepting perhaps The Life Divine.

One particular line from Savitri has been the endless source of courage, strength, inspiration, hope, Love, Blessings and Protection to me in my personal life for more than four decades. The line is well known, but it was and is to me a very very powerful Mantra that could make me stand against all odds and difficulties and problems, even enemies — agents of the Anti-Divine forces!

The line is :
All can be done if the God-touch is there.

If you have a true and living aspiration, that is the proof the that the Divine has touched you from within. That is the God-touch. If you have that within you, you can surmount the mountains of all difficulties, all problems of whatever magnitude.

Sri K R Srinivasa Iyengar has written in his magnum opus Sri Aurobindo:
"All over Savitri are scattered lines that seem to be charged with this drive of powerand grace of Grace:

He found the occult cave, the mystic door
Near to the well of vision in the soul,
And entered where the Wings of Glory brood..."

According to the Mother, Savitri is "prophetic vision of the world's history, including the announcement of the earth's future."
