Translation

Goddess Savitri, Goddess Savitri, Goddess Savitri,
The entire world dances in your glory
And in your beauty non-pareil.
You are the ocean-flood and the mountain-summit
Of self-giving.
O blessed daughter of the Absolute Supreme,
You are His satisfaction-fountain.
You embody the infinite consciousness
Of Sri Aurobindo’s epic Sri Aurobindo, Savitri.
You are at once the aspiration-flowers of the world
And the liberation-fruit of the Supermind.
