Let us now see how the Mother, with a precision
that only the Supramental can manifest, left us this great secret in her original
plan of the Inner Chamber.
The Innermost Core
At the exact centre of the Pedestal in the chamber’s Core there is the
Supreme Power Point.
It is the Truth-Consciousness ‘seed’ lodged at the perfect centre of
each created thing. One can visualise it as the immobile centre in the
midst of a whirling tornado. This is the soul’s magnetic charge which
assures us of a complete divinisation of life on Earth; or indeed of
the entire universe. This magnetic Point is what holds the universe
together and does not allow creation to disintegrate or to experience
total destruction or disintegration.
manifestation is imaged in the Shalagrama accurately, but
provided it has the Mother’s true chamber/vision within. Both elements
together describe the nature of the universe; this is the answer to the
mysteries baffling both science and spirituality.
become an abstract discussion we will now instil life into
the measurements so that numbers can become for the seeker living
things, just as the Mother experienced them (see Chronicle 9). They
become living when life is breathed into them by revealing the
living beings the numbers relate to, and through them the details of
their lived experiences on Earth, past, present and future.
the descending solar Ray of 15.20m must be ‘seen’ as the
year; and the Globe is then ‘seen’ as filled with the Light of
Capricorn because in our planet’s time the Ray touches the top of the
Globe at exactly the December Solstice, when we enter the zodiacal
Capricorn (see CIC 8). This is the beginning of the Festival of Light.
It will continue for another 15 days – from 22/12 to 5/1, or 0 degrees
to 15 degrees Capricorn. At its culmination – the symbolic mountain
peak, Mount Kailash or Mount Meru – there lies Saturn of Sri
Aurobindo’s natal horoscope: exactly at 15 degrees Capricorn – in its
home sign or most auspicious position. In terms of the descending Ray
this is the top of the stone Pedestal upholding the Globe, precisely
where the great secret of Sri Aurobindo’s mystery sleep is unveiled.
The centre of
the Globe is thus 1st January and throughout
the world even without these recondite details civilisations of many
diverse hues continue the tradition – all except India.
From 1st to 5th
January, the degrees of the room,
the spirit is indrawn since these are the five days ‘out of the
calendar’, the five over the perfect celestial sphere of 360 degrees.
By the 5th the new ‘seed’ is instilled with the life and
light of the Sun and the 360 remaining days of the year that open
before it offer the ‘field’ where the Golden Seed can evolve and mature
and disclose its Godlike forms. The special alchemy that imbues the
Seed with the light and power of the Supermind is described by the
Pedestal of the Mother’s Vision. The centremost Point of the Pedestal
is therefore the Supreme Power Point.
basis of the Vedic formula – one day for one year – these 365 days
can be ‘seen’ as 365 years. Similarly, they are ‘located’ on
the descending Ray with the top of the Pedestal becoming before
our eyes 1950. These are also the number values of the name
Thea, 9/5/1; they are the numbers of the 9th, 5th
and 1st zodiacal signs/Manifestations consisting of 6840
years – or the Trinity of Fire (we are presently in the middle of the 9th);
they are equivalent to 9/6/3 when the circle of twelve parts is
superimposed on the circle of nine. 1950 was in fact the year of Sri
Aurobindo’s passing when his ‘riddle sleep’ began. What Sri Aurobindo
experienced from that time onward is recorded in the Mother’s plan in
very exact details, starting with his 5.12.1950 conscious departure,
and ending thirteen years later with his return to Earth. Indeed,
exactly as foreseen when Satyavan is brought back through the channel
