About The Book of the Traveller of the Worlds (Part 1)
These talks, which cover the first half of the second book of Savitri, were given between August 1992 and January 1993. Aswapati, having achieved his own spiritual self-fulfilment as an individual, realises that the imperfect world around him has a higher destiny and undertakes a journey to discover all the planes of consciousness. In this commentary on the first six cantos of the Book of the Traveller of the Worlds, Aswapati, now acting as a representative of the entire human race, explores first the subtle-physical worlds of beauty and form and then the occult workings of the life force in the lower vital worlds. In Canto Six he ascends to a higher vital world, but his soul instinctively asks for a deeper joy than the “Kingdoms and Godheads of the Greater Life” can offer.
