Sri Aurobindo, an acknowledged poet of exemplary genius has been widely appreciated by the readers and the critics. His noteworthy work, Savitri has confounded the critics because of its remarkable quality in language and imagery. Savitri has surpassed the world literature in its methodology, its language, its symbolism and imageries; fundamentally of various sort from the poets of past or present. This is on the grounds that Sri Aurobindo manages realities of awareness, the immense dramatization of unpretentious real factors, forces and certainties. However it's anything but a moral story like the Faerie Queene or sagas like The Paradise Lost. It doesn't manage brave deeds as in Iliad or the Aeneid. Sri Aurobindo’s chief concept “Spiritual” does not mean socially good or right, but to him it has more profound meaning. According to him, Spirituality is going inward to know and to feel the subtle realities of existence. Savitri, is an embodiment of universal Mother and Satyavan is the Earth’s soul. This paper endeavours to highlight how Aurobindo’s work Savitri is adapted to the modern era. It achieves to express the journey of an individual who overwhelms his ignorance and sufferings in order to fulfil spiritual quest and thus sets a stage for a celestial life on earth.
