these Chronicles it is hard to imagine what real and non-speculative
sense could be made of these verses. Yet with Saraswati’s grace we
have been able to uncover dimensions of the Veda similar to her own
unveiling through satellite images in the mid-1980s, contiguous
indeed with the yogic realisation of Skambha itself. And thus the
ancient way is renewed, re-established in the midst of ‘all that
moves and breathes’. That is, never denying the Becoming but through
and by the passage of time, Skambha is set in place as the centre.
It holds, it creates order of everything ‘that moves
The Veda are re-established only by realising that same
high truth through the same yogic processes of old - but made new
as all things are made new by the truth of that which moves.
For several millennia we have had to tolerate a denial of that
sacred Becoming in attendance of the Supramental Manifestation that
could reinstate the way of the Ancient Ones within the context of
our evolving world. In the Auroville Matrimandir we encounter a
similar denial – nay, the epitome of that negation. We see emptiness
instead of fullness; we see falsehood instead of truth by virtue of
the fact that emptiness – shunya - can never lead to Skambha
and the Cosmic Truth. And without the realisation ‘that fills the
void’, all that is un-Vedic triumphs and continues to subjugate the
land where Purnata was that Cosmic Pillar, the ‘support’ of
all the worlds, of all that ‘moves and breathes’. This is the Core’s
Pedestal of the Mother’s Vision.
‘…Though manifest, it is yet hidden, secret…’ This
describes the Masked Transcendent of Sri Aurobindo’s Savitri.
It is the compact Fullness of the Zero, - or 9/6/3, Transcendent,
Cosmic, Individual as the great secret of our evolving world which
is born of the Law of Three. The Transcendence, we thus realise, is
not the dissolution of nirvana, which demands a severance and
a denial of all that the soul knows to be true and eternal; indeed,
a camouflaged denial of the Transcendent itself. The word in the
supramental realisation is integration, each thing in its
place so that ‘all that moves and breathes’ can indeed be set
fast by this mighty mode of being. This is the message of
Oneness that the Earth requires at these critical crossroads of her
The realisation the Veda encourages has the power to
solve the paradoxes of our world. It brings into our conscious
experience the Beyond which until now the human species has only
been capable of knowing after death; or else by extending one’s
consciousness to its extreme limits. And thus one returns to life on
this planet again in a state of unknowing. One begins again the
journey of life seeking to recapture that knowledge of the ‘hidden
secret’. Our entire existence is a pursuit of that secret – for the
most part without any awareness that we are seeking at all, much
less what the nature of that pursuit is and its goal.
In the Mother’s chamber the Core identifies the
foundation on which our life must be established so that alignment
and centering can permit a new direction in our quest.
