Opening Remarks for the Canto Seven

Savitri has arrived at the doors of the Unknowable where she has to make a choice or rather the Supreme Will within her has to decide whether she merges into Nothingness never to return or else she comes back from the threshold of the ultimate last dissolution and redeems the world. But if she must redeem the world she must become one with it, one with all its beings, one existence in all existences, one consciousness in all consciousness, one life with all life. She must wait until the decree reveals itself. Until then Savitri continues with all her everyday life in the forest hermitage even though inwardly free. This state is a state of boundless stillness and peace through which revelations pour and express through her body and brain now a pure and perfect channel for the Transcendent Beyond. Those around her saw her do all things as before yet sometimes, especially the sages of the forest noticed or rather felt in her some high change but could not surmise its source. Here Sri Aurobindo is pointing out to us that Nirvana is consistent with all works and the liberated person need not do anything unusual unless commanded by the Will of the Divine within.

There is nothing sentimental in the true weeping that comes from the soul. All that you feel now is the blossoming of the psychic being in you and the growth of a real bhakti.
