Question 519: Oh my gawsh! Can this be True? Seems pretty Super!


This is the author’s note for a certain unfinished work , __X__:

“The tale of ____Y____and____Z____ is recited in the Mahabharata as a story of conjugal love conquering death. But this legend is, as shown by many features of the human tale, one of the many symbolic myths of the Vedic cycle. ___Y___  is the soul carrying the divine truth of being within itself but descended into the grip of death and ignorance; ___Z___is the Divine Word, daughter of the Sun, goddess of the supreme Truth who comes down and is born to save; ________, the Lord of the Horse, her human father, is the Lord of Tapasya, the concentrated energy of spiritual endeavour that helps us to rise from the mortal to the immortal planes; ________, Lord of the Shining Hosts, father of ___Y___, is the Divine Mind here fallen blind, losing its celestial kingdom of vision, and through that loss its kingdom of glory. Still this is not a mere allegory, the characters are not personified qualities, but incarnations or emanations of living and conscious Forces with whom we can enter into concrete touch and they take human bodies in order to help man and show him the way from his mortal state to a divine consciousness and immortal life."

__X__  is quite easily the greatest poetic work by the author, and is appreciated both for its poetic quality as well as its spiritual and philosophical content. Composed in a rhythmic hexameter, it consists of 24000 lines and deals with the history of man and the Gods – of the creation of the universe, its purpose and its destiny. The author stresses on the spiritual evolutionary philosophy of ___A___, which is built on the concept of self realisation and has been compared to Pierre Teilhard de Chardin's concept of ___B___.


B

Question:

1. Identify X and the author.
2. Identify Y and Z. ( They’re generally considered together and the break down was solely for the sake of simplification)
3. Give me A and B. 
5 points for any 2, 10 for all three.
