About Savitri | B1C1-22 The Question of Human Life (p.10)


All the fierce question of man’s hours relived.
The sacrifice of suffering and desire
Earth offers to the immortal Ecstasy
Began again beneath the eternal Hand.

It is this terrible story of the creation of earth and man as the means to save the world from suffering and destruction.

Awake she endured the moments’ serried march
And looked on this green smiling dangerous world,
And heard the ignorant cry of living things.
Amid the trivial sounds, the unchanging scene
Her soul arose confronting Time and Fate.
Immobile in herself, she gathered force.
This was the day when Satyavan must die.

The death of Satyavan becomes the symbol of the misery of the earth’s creation, of its fate and, through Her of its liberation. She faces the doom in order to give the solution.
The creation is plunged in misery, suffering and death. But it can and will be saved through Her intervention.
