The love story of Savitri and Satyavan
“She brought, flower-symbol of her offered life,
Then with raised hands that tremble a little now
At the very closeness that her soul desired,
This bond of sweetness, their bright union’s sign,
She made her life his world for him to tread
And made her body the room of his delight,
Her beating heart a remembrance of bliss
He gathered all Savitri into his clasp.
Around her his embrance became a sign
Of a locked closeness through slow intimate years,
In wide moments of two souls that meet
She felt her being flow into him as in waves
A river pours into a mighty sea.
As when a soul is merging into God
To live in him forever and know His joy,
Her consiousness grew aware of him alone
And all her seperate self was lost in his
He shut her into himself in a circle of bliss,
He was aware of her enveloping him
And let her penetrate his very soul
Thus were they in each other lost awhile,
The united Two began a greater age.
One human moment was eternal made.”
SAVITRI By Sri Aurobindo.
Beautiful, pure love..
Today we have forgotten what unconditional love is, maybe our day and age has not heard about such love but atleast we can learn what love is, from Savitri and Satyavan.
