serves this high truth. It has come into existence to assure that the
reign of the shadow comes to an end and the Divine Maya is restored.
The vertical alignment of the Chamber, with the symbol-ray playing upon
the Globe, is the crucial piece in the design; according to the Mother,
‘[It] is the symbol of the future realisation.’
Therefore, everything that the Globe stands for has been attacked
relentlessly by powers that oppose the victory of this knowledge and

year of 365 days ends at the top of the pedestal, and with it the
visible Ray. The pedestal serves to legitimise and support the Globe –
the only luminous object in the entire chamber. The legitimacy resides
in the measure of time for the Earth, her own harmony within the solar
system which the height of the pedestal establishes. Thus, to those
15.20m (365 days) we must now add the 50cm of the pedestal’s vertical
measurement. On this basis the Axis of Light, or the chamber’s vertical
shaft, measures 15.20m plus 50cm. The pedestal must be accommodated in
this manner if the integrality of the supramental gnosis and its
harmonies are to be respected.
prove the point, earlier we discussed the first law of the
harmony, one day for one year. Applying this law means that
those 365 days are also 365 years when we use the same
measuring rod. The Zero Point for the year/ray would be 1584 since it
is the first 9-power year (1+5+8+4=18=9) after the adoption of the
universal calendar used throughout the world (1582). Thus, 365 years
measured from the Ray’s entry into the chamber, reveals that as the
organised shaft of light descends, it reaches Sri Aurobindo’s symbol in
the pedestal at the end of the visible Ray, 365 years later, in the year
equivalent of 1949/50.
