In this volume passages have been selected that contain words about beauty, sweetness, wonder and more. My aspiration since the days of my youth has always been to seek, recognize and occasionally to manifest beauty in music, poetry, landscaping and life. I have found beauty in the laughter and sweetness of children, in the unity of kindred souls, in the ever changing, ever new face of Nature, in poetry and art, music and architecture and in the incomparable eyes of the Mother’s look and the calm and potent peace of Sri Aurobindo’s presence. Mother’s words have been more than guidance, they have filled my soul with their splendour and their truth. I was once told that sweetness was Sri Aurobindo’s favorite word as it was that of Shakespeare. In researching Savitri for the Inspiration volumes I found ninety-four lines containing the word ‘sweet’ and eighty-two lines with the word ‘sweetness’! Sri Aurobindo’s passages on charm, grace, marvel, splendour, loveliness and wonder are also included in this volume. It is the heart’s treasure and the soul’s blessing to read and be moved by the mastery of his touch, bringing the power and plenitude of mantra to man through Savitri. “Beauty is his footprint... --- This series of books contains selected categories from Savitri, ones that I have chosen because they resonate most strongly within me. They offer a method of approach enabling one to read only a few lines at a time, meditate on them and allow their mantric force to enter into the cavern of the soul where they will illumine and transform. One could easily have chosen other themes as well, as the possibilities are endless in this epic of Divine Love conquering death and the establishment of a divine life on earth. People often tell me that Savitri is ‘too difficult’ or ‘closed’ to them. To give a facile suggestion to ‘Go Deeper’ or to say that Savitri has been written from planes above the mind and is therefore impossible for the mind to understand, does nothing to encourage anyone to begin this marvellous adventure of consciousness and joy. The universal themes I have selected will hopefully capture the interest of one who would like to begin reading Savitri but fears it is too daunting. It is my prayer that this simple approach may inspire many who formerly found Savitri too complex and forbidding to enter into it through these elevating and life-changing themes. In the passages quoted, as in all of Savitri, one will find a richness of language and the beauty of Sri Aurobindo’s poetic genius in lines that will live for all time in the soul of humanity, helping it to grow into the Light and the Life Divine. O Lord, inconceivable Splendour, may Thy Beauty spread through all the earth, may Thy Love be kindled in every heart and Thy Peace reign over all. The Mother – Prayers and Meditations July 23, 1913 Let beauty be your constant ideal: The beauty of the soul The beauty of sentiments The beauty of thoughts The beauty of action The beauty in work so that nothing comes out of your hands which is not an expression of pure and harmonious beauty. And the divine help will always be with you. The Mother In the physical world, of all things it is beauty that expressed best the Divine. The physical world is a word of form and the perfection of for is beauty. Beauty interprets, expressed, manifests the Eternal. Its role is to put all manifested nature in contact with the Eternal through the perfection of form, through harmony and a sense of the ideal which uplifts and leads towards something higher. The Mother “On Education” Beauty is Ananda taking form – but the form need not be a physical shape. One speaks of a beautiful thought, a beautiful act, a beautiful soul. What we speak of as beauty is Ananda in manifestation; beyond manifestation beauty loses itself in Ananda or, you may say, beauty and Ananda become indistinguishably one. Sri Aurobindo “The Future Poetry”
