I have obeyed my heart, I have carried out thy will
On the borders of a dreaming wilderness."
'Savitri' Sri Aurobindo
In Shimla at Erwin Lodge, Santjeo daily read out loud with me
the book Savitri by Sri Aurobindo. It was actually the only book
in English we ever read together. Magnificent! It is one of the few
great works ever written in English by a fully realised soul.
It's depth is truly astonishing particularly when read by a saint
of Santji's caliber! There were suspended moments when we
became transfixed in another consciousness so completely
as to simply forget to breathe, in a space less timelessness bliss.
It is still a masterpiece I highly recommend, that has immense,
depth and spiritual power to inspire divine Love and Light.
"Armored with love and faith and sacred joy,
A traveler to the Eternal's house
Once let unwounded pass a mortal life."
Awe! How splendidly He moves the spirit
and sends it soaring into a tranquil star filled infinity!
So I continued in lost delight...
