Aurobindo: excerpt from Savitri

Excerpt from the poem "Savitri" by Sri Aurobindo [quoted from The Essential Mystics by Andrew Harvey, pg. 66]

"Earth shall be made a home of Heaven's light. . . .
Invading matter with the Spirit's ray,
Awakening its silence to immortal thoughts,
Awakening the dumb heart to the living Word.
"The supermind shall claim the world for Light
And thrill with love of God the enamored heart
And place Light's crown on Nature's head
And found Light's reign on her unshaking base.
"A soul shall wake in the Inconscient's house;
The mind shall be God-vision's tabernacle,
The body, intuition's instrument,
And life, a channel for God's visible power.
"The Spirit shall look out through Matter's gaze
And Matter shall reveal the Spirit's face.
The Spirit's tops and Nature's base shall draw
Near to the secret of their separate truth
And know each other as one deity.
Then man and superman shall be at one
And all the earth become a single life."
