Matrimandir Calendar 2008
The Matrimandir Calendar 2008 is printed and will be available for sale from the end of October. This year, we concentrated on the inner sphere of Matrimandir which progressively became more and more beautiful once the scaffolding was removed and the inner skin with its golden-orange-pink color was installed.
The two ramps were covered with a beautiful thick white handwoven carpet.
We wanted to 'follow the light' -- starting outside of the Matrimandir, enter through the new golden door to the entrance on the first level, and go up the staircase into the Sphere. Then we walk up the ramp into the Chamber, and all the way down to the lotus pond. We arranged the Savitri quotes and photos as such that a pattern emerged "the Path of Light", going up to the Ray in the Chamber and bringing the Light down into matter.
The theme is therefore:
"The Path of Light"
The Matrimandir Calendar 2008 will be a desk calendar (table-top) with the sizes 19.5 cm x 20 cm. It has the same format and stand as the Matrimandir Calendar 2007.
It features 12 big photos of the Matrimandir and 12 different small photos on the calendar page.
As the attached 12 big photos show, we start with a view of the golden globe from outside, the next 6 photos are taken inside the Sphere, going up to the Chamber, August 2008 features the ray onto the crystal, then we descend the ramp and view the lotus pond at the bottom of Matrimandir. The last two pictures show outside views, the banyan tree and a full moon rise.
Quotations from Sri Aurobindo's ' Savitri ' and an explanation of each photo is provided.
The calendar is printed in 4 colors on foreign mat art paper, thickness 240 GSM. The calendar is spiral bound on the top and has a sturdy stand.
Each calendar is separately packed with shrink wrapping.
The price will be Rs. 150 exclusive taxes and packing/postage.
All proceeds from the sale of the calendar will go to the finishing of the Matrimandir.
