answer lies in the Core, a seeing rooted in the Core, not above
and beyond in the transcendence. The transcendent seeing reveals only
the Being – what is, the circle seen from a great height, high
enough to perceive circles within circles which linear perception
cannot encompass. But it does not reveal the details of the Becoming
within the Being. Its vision or seeing is therefore STATIC.
‘It is only a poising of the Seeing Eye in the Core and perception from
that Point which can disclose the nature of the Becoming within Being
and hence reveal how this knowing is made possible.
comes into being, then only is the simultaneous truth of the One and
the Many made manifest, then only has ‘the time come’ for the new
Supramental Creation.’ (The VISHAAL Newsletter, Vol. 4, Issue 4,
The above can be
considered a definition or description of the translucent Globe in the
Core of the Mother’s Chamber when perfect centering is accomplished –
that is, a perfect alignment of vertical and horizontal to allow for the
birth that fills the Void. Though this function does not exist in
the Auroville Matrimandir, it is nonetheless the most important
function of the Mother’s Vision; indeed, it is the symbol of the
future realisation, as she herself has described it.
For a creation to be of the Supermind, or the solar substance of the
Truth-Consciousness, certain laws must be respected,
certain harmonics, if you will. Indeed, music is the
answer. But in the case of the Mother’s Chamber, it is truly and
indisputably a music of the spheres. Her creation is the only factual
example of such cosmic harmonies in art and architecture. There may
have been examples in the past; but it is a past so distant that traces
of it are found only in myths. To discover this great secret we have to
dig deep into and through the soil of the Ages.
The 9 has been the great key of Knowledge. It is the measure of our scale
to create the music of the spheres. The Zero is the Shruti
(‘drone’ of Carnatic music) of our composition. This is the Vedic
Fullness, and out of that plenitude all the tones arise and the raga
comes into being. The 0/Shruti is the immeasurable Silence given Sound
to render it audible (measurable) in our material world of time and
space. It is OM.
The Mother’s Chamber is a musical instrument but of a special order;
through it we can ‘hear’ the sublime Music of the Spheres. We ‘hear’ through
perception – just as the ancient Rishis did; for which reason the
word to describe the experience is shruti, or the heard
seeing. The music is ‘heard’ through the Act of Seeing. The Shruti
of Carnatic music serves to focus perception in the musician so that he
or she may have access to that sanctum sanctorum that is the womb of
the Cosmic Mother, the pregnant origin of all sound, the sacred Pranav.
In the scale of 9 the Mother embodies the number-power 6, which is
precisely the ‘note’ of the Cosmic Divine in the 0 to 9 scale of the
cosmic harmonies. It is only fitting therefore that she herself should
have bequeathed this sublime new musical instrument as her final legacy
to human civilisation, with which we can play/hear the ‘music’ of that
very cosmic principle she embodied so impeccably.
The previous 9 Chronicles were merely a preparation, an initial
cleansing or libation as one undertakes before entering a temple. The
lens of perception was being focussed during those 9 Chronicles
so that, similar to the Shruti (‘drone’) of Carnatic music,
consciousness and perception would become single-bodied.
However, until now we have not really entered the sanctum sanctorum. We
have been rising through the Shalagrama and in the process we have shed light on
the flaws and fallacies of the world men have created; and we have
shed many veils that cloud perception.
