You have revealed the ugly force behind the book in your revelatory, and by far the best critique that there exists. True, eloquent and masterful are both your comments. Posted by Anonymous to Savitri Era at 12:37 PM, September 21, 2010

The relationship between the Gopis and
Krishna was romantic, erotic, and spiritual at the same time. The relationship of Mirabai to her beloved Krishna was both romantic and spiritual.
The Indian bhakti tradition celebrates the romantic and erotic manifestations of spiritual love. It is silly and immature to set up a false opposition between the human and the divine facets of spiritual love.
Even IF there were romantic and erotic elements in the spiritual love of Aurobindo and Mirra Alfassa for one another, what would this undermine or disprove other than the presence of the faculty of Buddhi in those who would see this acknowledgment, or conjecture, as "sacrilege" or "blasphemy"?

you are right sandeep. There was not need for putting that “she quickly withdrew her hand". This quickly withdrew her hand is another interpretation of the scene. Most unnecessary comment. Reply. Home, Cardinal Slur

Although Peter does acknowledge that Savitri is a "vast symbolic account" of Aurobindo's yoga and "a record of his experiences", I will add that he ought to have emphasized and discussed at some length Aurobindo's view that Savitri was an attempt to express, in the medium of poetry, occult and spiritual truths.
It seems to me that the indubitable status of Savitri as a literary work should not occlude or eclipse its equally important status as a work of "mystic poetry" in Aurobindo's specific conception of that type of poetry. Posted by drraghu to Savitri Era Open Forum at 1:44 PM, September 21, 2010
