But the 1983 positioning of the
Globe via the rectification of the crosswise axes was only the
beginning. Nonetheless, it marked a significant turning point in
that the victory was thereafter secure – a Golden Seed had been
planted in the heart of Time. There could be no going back
because Time’s on-going, forward march is irreversible.
Together with the translucent Globe (1983) the stone
pedestal had to be ‘positioned’ in 1984. But its placement was a
foregone conclusion when the Globe that received the Golden Seed was
set in place through whose bosom this Seed passes. The Globe
determines the measurements and form of the Pedestal (see CIC 7).
Thus 1983 and 1984 must be viewed as one connected yogic operation:
the successful accomplishment involving the Globe could only result
in the proper Pedestal. And this too is faithful to the Knowledge
and the contours of the Supramental Manifestation as designed by the
There were 27 years set aside for the ‘descent’ of the
Chamber, 1971 to 1998, and the related yogic processes it set in
motion. We note that 1983-4 was the exact midway point in this
designated period. By 1998 the task was largely completed. The
Inner Chamber was then an indestructible element in the
Mother’s work, at its very heart. From that time the process of
exposure could begin. MAC is a part of that on-going process.
Now we must focus on the deeper ‘contents’ of the
translucent Globe and what its placement by yogic methods meant for
the Mother’s work as Executor of the Supreme’s Will.
The first 15 degrees of the zodiacal month/sign
Capricorn are ‘contained in the Globe’. This, as pointed out in the
Chronicles, is the traditional Festival of Light: 21-22 December to
5-6 January. The inner chamber is the abode of the Time-Spirit, and
this is his most sacred festival. The measurements as given by the
Mother bring about the correction Sri Aurobindo referred to
regarding Kalki’s coming. That birth is foretold and confirmed in
those measurements (see CIC 9). But with the distortion on the
ground, at the 12th latitude bordering the tsunami-hit
area, the yogic ‘construction’ of the Chamber was vital.
The point of this Update on the tsunami occurrence is
simply to reveal that after the process of exposure was successfully
accomplished (the Yoga of the Chronicles), these two versions of the
Inner Chamber could no longer stand side-by-side. One or the other
had to be un-done as centre-focus of the Mother’s work. Her true
vision could no longer be suppressed.
And so it has come to pass. The power of Inertia that
was able to usurp the physical space only because the measurements
had been changed received a fatal blow. It could almost be seen
plunging in a rage into the nearby ocean depths because of this
failure to impose its stamp of Death on the Mother’s work, its
failure to hold the Earth in its coil of mortality forever after.
This brings to mind a warning that was issued, in a
monograph entitled, What is Wrong with Matrimandir in 1977.
This document was circulated throughout the Sri Aurobindo Ashram
when the Mother’s original vision was lost forever in the Auroville
construction. The repercussions of this defiance were all too clear,
as the following reveals, the strategy of the Usurper was more than
becomes doubly difficult when the dark power places itself at the
Centre, at the very Soul point, and there disguises itself as this
very thing. In so doing it consolidates its hold and enjoys a unique
protection, by taking refuge in the very heart of the organism. Thus
as it grows its eradication one day would necessitate the
destruction of the new creation itself.
