I am reading Savitri by Sri Aurobindo, canto two, the issue

He brackets the theme of the book (starting point of the story around which the symbolism was built.)

"An absolute supernatural darkness falls
On man sometimes when he draws near to God
An hour arrives when fail all Nature's means
Forced out from the protecting Ignorance
And flung back on his naked primal need
He at length must cast from him his surface soul
And be the ungarbed entity within "

Reading Epilogue of Savitri by Sri Aurobindo

These lines capture theme of the book, where Savitri asserts,

“Awakened to the meaning of my heart
That to feel oneness and love is to live
And this is the magic of our golden change
Is all the truth I know or seek, O sage”
