Sri Aurobindo’s epic Savitri running into about twenty-four thousand lines is not only a literary masterpiece; it is the supreme revelation of his vision and a record of his yogic and spiritual attainments. It proclaims the future of man and prepares the necessary ground for the powers of the spirit to enter into his life. It speaks, for instance, about the essential sound becoming the material sound, and it is that which can give rise to new expression. It is the sound that can bring to us the knowledge-power of the spirit. These are the possibilities and these have been most forcefully and luminously brought out by the Mother. It is that gift of hers which we value most, that which can form a constant source of inspiration, that we may grow more and more fully in it. Through it we can reach the vast realms of delight, brihat saubhagam, in the accomplishment of our life and our soul.
In the compilation The Mother on Savitri, every efforts has been made to collect all the “writings” of the Mother on Savitri, her avowals and pronouncements made on different occasions in different contexts. It is believed that this compilation will form a constant source of inspiration to all the lovers of Savitri, that it will be a means for them to march on the spiritual path of progress, lead them to attainments which only Savitri can offer. If Savitri herself ascends to the vast realms of delight, brihat saubhagam, then surely it does open out a way for us all, those who wish to follow her path.
The anthology also includes two sketches of “Savitri” and “The Descent of the Supreme Mother” made by the Mother as well as facsimiles of her messages on Savitri.
