The Mission of Savitri, pp. 536-537

Opening Remarks
The mission of Savitri is now being revealed to her by the Voice of Light.

Thou hast come down
Thou hast come down into a struggling world
To aid a blind and suffering mortal race,
To open to Light the eyes that could not see,
To bring down bliss into the heart of grief,
To make thy life a bridge twixt earth and heaven;
If thou wouldst save the toiling universe,
The vast universal suffering feel as thine:
Thou must bear the sorrow that thou claimst to heal;
The day-bringer must walk in darkest night.

The Voice of Light reminds Savitri that she chose to come down into this struggling world to help open the eyes of mortal man blinded by ignorance and assailed by suffering and grief to the Light and bliss of God. Her life is meant to be a bridge between earth and heaven. The Voice reveals to her that if she wouldst save the struggling world then she must share its vast universal suffering. She must bear the sorrow that she claims to heal. It reminds her that one who is meant to bring the day must walk in the darkest night.

He who would save
He who would save the world must share its pain.
If he knows not grief, how shall he find grief’s cure?

He who must save the world must share its pain. How shall he find the cure of grief if he has never experienced grief?

If far he walks
If far he walks above mortality’s head,
How shall the mortal reach that too high path?

If he walks far above in the immortal realms how shall the mortal man be able to tread that high and austere path.

If one of theirs they see
If one of theirs they see scale heaven’s peaks,
Men then can hope to learn that titan climb.

Man needs an example to follow. If he sees someone like him scale the peaks then man can hope to learn that strenuous climb.

God must be born as man
God must be born on earth and be as man
That man being human may grow even as God.

It is only if God is born upon earth as man that man can grow even as God in his footsteps.

He who would save
He who would save the world must be one with the world,
All suffering things contain in his heart’s space
And bear the grief and joy of all that lives.

He who would save the world must first become one with the world and contain all suffering in his heart and bear the grief and joy of all that lives.

Wider than the universe
His soul must be wider than the universe
And feel eternity as its very stuff,
Rejecting the moment’s personality
Know itself older than the birth of Time,
Creation an incident in its consciousness,
Arcturus and Belphegor grains of fire
Circling in a corner of its boundless self,
The world’s destruction a small transient storm
In the calm infinity it has become.

His soul must expand and be as wide as the universe. He must live in the consciousness of eternity. Not identifying with the moment’s personality he must know itself older than time across many a lives and births. He must feel creation as an incidence in his consciousness and Arcturus and Belphegor constellations as merely grains of fire burning in a corner of his boundless self. He should feel the world’s destruction as a small transient storm in the calm of infinity that he has become.

Closing Remarks
The Voice of Light reminds Savitri of her work upon earth and bids her to walk the Saviour’s way.

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.
