This book is a study of Sri Aurobindo’s Savitri
based on the
concept of revelatory visions of the future of mankind. Taking a scholarly approach to the subject, the author includes chapters defining the genre of apocalyptic literature and its mystic or spiritual basis, and Savitri
as an Indian illustration of the genre. Subsequent chapters examine the revelatory aspects of the poem in relation to the true nature and purpose of the human being, the mystery of consciousness on the mental, vital, and physical planes, and the hidden meaning of consciousness on the planes of the higher mind, the illumined mind, the plane of intuition, the overmind, and the supramental.
