About Savitri | B1C1-07 The First Avatar (pp.3-4)

 

Then He says:

The darkness failed and slipped like a falling cloak
From the reclining body of a god.

A god had come down upon earth to wake it up to the inner Consciousness. We could say that this was the first Avatar.

Then through the pallid rift that seemed at first
Hardly enough for a trickle from the suns,
Outpoured the revelation and the flame.
The brief perpetual sign recurred above.

It is the coming down of the first Avatar to wake up the earth to Consciousness — that is, to bring an intensity of Consciousness and Realisation in this inconscient world.
It is obviously the description of the appearance of the first Avatar. It starts from that — because He puts:

Then through the pallid rift that seemed at first
Hardly enough for a trickle from the suns,
Outpoured the revelation and the flame.

The revelation and the flame.”

The brief perpetual sign recurred above.

That is the sign of the Avatar coming down upon earth. “The brief perpetual sign recurred above”.

A glamour from unreached transcendences
Iridescent with the glory of the Unseen,
A message from the unknown immortal Light
Ablaze upon creation’s quivering edge,
Dawn built her aura of magnificent hues
And buried its seed of grandeur in the hours.

This is the description of the first contact of the Light from above bringing an unknown message.

An instant’s visitor the godhead shone:
On life’s thin border awhile the Vision stood
And bent over earth’s pondering forehead curve.

It is the answer of the Divine to the condition in which had fallen the creation and the first contact of the Gods with the Matter.

It is not the personality, the character that is of the first importance in rebirth — it is the psychic being who stands behind the evolution of the nature and evolves with it.
