The symbol is all

Re: The Lives of Sri Aurobindo says Savitri is a fictional creation

[Nothing can be achieved without Yoga, neither by man or Avatar or God.]

Such a statement is being made for the first time in human history. Obviously, without any evidences. Even, you seek to limit the power of God.

[Brahma created this world by doing Tapas; Vishnu sustains it by Yoga; Shiva's yogic Dance of Destruction is to destroy the past that a new future shall arise.]

I don’t subscribe to mythological stories.

[Aswapati did Yoga-Tapasya to bring down the divine Power upon earth. Savitri in her mortal birth did the occult Yoga of Meditation to house the divine Shakti in her soul in order to conquer universal Death.]

As in The Secret of the Veda, I am interested in the “symbol” aspect and not in the fiction (katha) part.

[The fourfold order in Man was established in the Sacrifice of the Purusha, the Purusha Yajna. That is the Law and nothing can be achieved without it.]

Again, the symbol is all. [TNM] Reply
