Conversations with Mother - Light Divine


Sadhak: Mother,
Does the Divine punish injustice? Is it possible at all for Him to punish anybody?

THE MOTHER: The Divine does not see things as men do and has no need to punish or reward. Each and every action carries in itself its fruit and its consequences.

According to the nature of the action, it brings you near to the Divine or takes you away from Him, and that is the supreme consequence.
SAVITRI—A Legend and a Symbol

“All can be done if the god-touch is there.”
—BOOK I: The Book of Beginnings, CANTO I: The Symbol Dawn, p. 3

The writing of ‘SAVITRI’ extended over much of the later part of Sri Aurobindo’s life. The earliest known manuscript is dated 1916. The original narrative poem was recast several times in the first phase of composition. By around 1930, Sri Aurobindo had begun to turn it into an epic with a larger scope and deeper significance. Transformed into ‘A Legend and a Symbol’, SAVITRI became his major literary work which he continued to expand and perfect until his last days.
