Sri Aurobindo's Savitri is the longest epic-poem in English literature. With his alchemic touch, the simple story of Savitri and Satyavan in the Mahabharata turns into a prophetic vision of the conquest of Death for man by the Divine Grace.
Sri M.P. Pandit has written an elaborate commentary on the epic in his ten outstanding volumes of Readings in Savitri. This book summarizes the commentary in a narration that flows canto by canto, book by book.
The story leads us to the higher planes of existence, the worlds of Mind and Life, Light and Sat-Chit-Ananda (Existence-Consciousness-Bliss). We see the play of Fate and free will, learn the cause of pain and suffering, and are blessed with a vision of the divine manifestation upon Earth.
