As the scribe of Sri Aurobindo, Nirodbaran was inextricably linked with the composition of the great epic Savitri. Sri Aurobindo dictated this epic to Nirodbaran day after day and Nirodbaran takes `down line after line'. Referring to it, Nirodbaran says that "I do not know whether such a thing happened in the case of other poets."
Sri Aurobindo himself pointed out that "different levels of inspiration had been at work" when he composed Savitri. Explaining these 'different levels of inspiration' Nirodbaran observes that Sri Aurobindo took poetry as 'a part of his Sadhana'. For that reason the Mother had said that "the reading of Savitri can be a great help to Sadhana."
Nirodbaran's 'insightful remarks' about some disciples of Sri Aurobindo and some hints on "the present difficulties and the prerequisites of Sadhana" would help us to understand the 'inside-view of Yoga.' There is no doubt that in a very lucid way Nirodbaran analyses the `Subconscient', which is 'the depot of all the contents of the lower nature like passion, anger etc" in human beings. He points out that "Sri Aurobindo's Yoga would not be fulfilled or realised unless the Subconscient is totally transformed."
