Who is Bharati?

To understand the symbolism behind four goddesses, one needs to read Sri Aurobindo's The Secret of the Veda.

Human nature can't be compared with anything else; they are just indicators. Sri Aurobindo stresses on Fraternity - the third formula - on the Vedic Mitra-Varuna principle. We are moving towards that.
The last sentence is flawed. Of the four Varnas, the last one is especially geared to work with the service motive. Mahasaraswati in The Mother book represents that faculty.

Misc. References:

1. Why does Draupadi marry the five Pandava brothers? What causes Indra and Sachi to reincarnate as the Pandavas and Draupadi? Read the secret of the origin of Pandavas and Panchali. #mahabharata #Pandavas #Draupadi @IndicAcademy
[As per Narada Puran, and Vayu Purana, Draupadi is a composite Avatar of Goddesses Shyamala (wife of Dharma), Bharati (Wife of Vayu), Sachi (wife of Indra), and Usha (wife of Ashwins) and hence marries their earthly counterparts in Pandavas.]

2. Hm! Maharshi Agastya & Vasiṣṭa are the shared sons of Mitra-Varuna through Urvashi. Vasista is favored towards Maharshi Parashara, & in Slavic, it's derived as Perun (Verun/Varenya, Varuna) w/Axe! Through India, the common Indo-Iran & Indo-European universal are relatable! etc.

3. This thread tempts me to see something analogous to the "Mitra-Varuṇa duality" in the Bhāgavatam episode where an undersea Viṣṇu makes and defines categories(eg. nectar vs poison) and an overhead Śiva breaks and defies them(making a jewel of poison). 1/2
