Sri Aurobindo Revelation | A Critical Analysis

The poem ‘Revelation’ by Sri Aurobindo is a mystic poem. The title ‘Revelation’ is itself mystic and it refers to the act of revealing the mystery of something that is obscure. In this poem, the poet expresses his mystic vein that human beings can make communication with God through nature not physically but spiritually.

The poet Sri Aurobindo says that one day in an open field beside hills, he suddenly saw a being that was so bright. It was leaping behind the poet from the rocks. It leaped and ran on. Its motion was as swift as the wind. The scene was seen only for a moment. Before the poet could think of it, the glimpse of light disappeared. At last, the poet thought that it had come from heaven. The poet says:

”And a hurried glance behind 

And then nothing – as a thought 

Escapes the mind ere it is caught 

Someone of the heavenly rout 

From behind the veil ran out.” 

The mystic revelation of the vision of God is a temper of the mind only; in reality, it cannot be proved. It is the highest stage of spiritual thought on God. A mystic believes in the existence of tri-souls – the human soul, the soul of nature and the Divine Soul. He also believes that the human soul is capable of communicating with the Divine Soul. The poet Sri Aurobindo has done so here in the poem.

The style and language of the poem are simple and easy. It is written in two-lined rhyme. It has no figure of speech except the objects of nature which symbolizes the soul. 0 0 0
