Savitri, the Conquest of Death

Aurobindo's major works are the Life Divine ( prose ) and Savithri ( poetry).

Savithri is allegorical, and represents the conquest of Death and the passage into the realm of Immortality.

Savithri tells Death

How can any one show thee Truth's supreme face ?
To thought an incomprehensible supreme Supreme Light 
To speech a marvel inexpressible 
If thou wert to unmask Truth's face supreme
Thou shalt suddenly grow wise and cease to be !
