THE ENGLISH OF SAVITRI: VOLUME 9 (BOOK TWO - THE BOOK OF THE TRAVELLER OF THE WORLDS - CANTOS TEN AND ELEVEN)
Volume Nine in this series on The English of Savitri explores Cantos Ten and Eleven of Book Two. It tells of King Aswapati's entry into the realms of Mind, described in two long cantos entitled respectively “The Kingdoms and Godheads of the Little Mind” and “The Kingdoms and Godheads of the Greater Mind”. The former canto focuses on picturing the lower planes of mind up to the plane of the reasoning mind, while the latter deals with the higher planes that cannot be circumscribed by mere human thought.
Like the previous volumes, this book is based on the transcripts of classes held at Savitri Bhavan. Its aim remains the same, to read the poetry according to the natural rhythms of English speech and to gain a better understanding and appreciation of Savitri by explaining Sri Aurobindo’s vocabulary, sentence structure, and imagery.
