Introspection on the Lines of Savitri: An Exhibition of Symbols of Matter’s Trance, Sleep and Waking

4. Title: Surrender/ Artist: Samij Datta
With lines of inspiration from Savitri, The Book of Love, Book V and Satyavan and Savitri, Canto III: “The Spirit was saved, the body lost and mute/Lived still with Death and ancient Ignorance;/The Inconscient was its base, the Void its fate./But thou hast come and all will surely change:/I shall feel the World-Mother in thy golden limbs/And hear her wisdom in thy sacred voice./The child of the Void shall be reborn in God,/My Matter shall evade the Inconscient’s trance./My body like my spirit shall be free./It shall escape from Death and Ignorance.”
