India has known this from the earliest age of man. It has also been known that a refocusing is demanded at certain precise intervals. It is only the Evolutionary Avatar who can accomplish this task for the civilisation. And once that is done, the rest evolves organically and inevitably. As time moves on from that newly established zero-point, or ayanamsha as it is called in Sanskrit, everything that manifests from that ‘seed’ can only be an extension of its innermost essence. A ‘seed’ thus established on the basis of a proper alignment consists of the consciousness-being of the Avatar.
          Since this ‘seed’ of zero-time is the key aspect of the Divine Maya or Measure, it stands that a mechanism has to be provided to grant the Avatar this function. Vedic culture has preserved for us this knowledge. Sri Aurobindo has fulfilled the mission by transforming the knowledge into living truth. But to understand the dimensions of the problem we need only apply our 23.20m room diameter to the issue. Interestingly, we discover that this same mis-measure of 23 afflicts contemporary Hindu society as well. In this manner we note that the Auroville Matrimandir is not an embodiment of chaos in and for itself and the community it serves, but its problems are reflected beyond the township’s boundaries. To appreciate this the seeker must realise that
India’s mis-measure is also 23.

          Regarding the Auroville Matrimandir the 23 mis-measure concerns space (the room’s diameter); for India and Hindu civilisation that same mis-measure concerns time (the Hindu calendar). Let us examine how this works and in the process we will learn more about the Laws of Correspondence and Equivalence and how they operate – then and now. 

The Core’
s Soul of Knowledge
We have discussed to some extent the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn with regard to the Auroville Matrimandir room diameter of 23.20m in that the same measurement is the Earth’s axial tilt in degrees of celestial longitude. The accuracy required in these higher studies demanded that only one time/calendar measurement be scrupulously determined to allow the system to function. This was (and still is) to determine the shortest day of the year, which is also the beginning of the sign Capricorn in the tropical zodiac. In India it is known as Makar (Capricorn) Sankranti, or the ‘gateway to Capricorn’. Makar, the amphibian crocodile, is India’s equivalent of the Goat with a tail of a fish.
[4] There is hardly a person in the nation today who understands the extreme importance of the Makar Sankranti, though it is celebrated throughout the country. In Tamil Nadu it is known as Pongal. In the Mother’s original plan, as reported in Chronicle 8, this period ‘fills the Globe’, its time-light coinciding exactly with the date that the Festival of Light ‘begins’ in the measurement of the magical Ray.
          Though it is still known as Makar Sankranti, this Capricorn gateway is 23 degrees off! Applying this discrepancy to the calendar, we note that Hindus celebrate this most crucial passage of their collective destiny not at the only time it must be celebrated – the 21/22 December solstice – but 23 days later, on 14/15 January.
          The reason given for this is in itself a study of phenomenal proportions because this mis-measure alone can reveal everything that has gone wrong in the subcontinent since time first began to ‘slip’, - right up to the cementing of the wrong diameter in the Mother’s chamber and all that that signifies, as these Chronicles have revealed. In between we have a civilisation’s entire history mapped out in the only way that ‘history’ has been recorded in Vedic civilisation: by means of the cosmic harmony together with the zodiacal script.
          This would appear to legitimise the Auroville Matrimandir mis-measure and add weight to Lohman’s contention that there can be no ‘error’ where Auroville and the Mother’s chamber are concerned (see CIC 4). In a certain sense this was Lohman’s one and only profound perception which will become evident further on.
