Petal chambers, Auroville

I'm sure you will love this personal account of Christine Rhone into the Petal Chambers of the Matrimandir in Auroville.

"While the Inner Chamber of the Matrimandir has been open for some years, all the Petal Chambers around the Matrimandir have opened only recently. The Mother specified the colours for each of them and equated each of the twelve colours with one of the twelve qualities of the Universal Mother. In the order of the colour spectrum, starting with red and ending with violet, these are: Courage, Progress, Receptivity, Aspiration, Perseverance, Gratitude, Humility, Sincerity, Peace, Equality, Generosity, and Goodness."

She experienced 4 of the 12 chambers. This is a photo of the Petal chamber called "Aspiration".

I was just living in Auroville, and never got the chance to go in the Matrimandir! booo.

Cool pic!
How come you were in Auroville and didn't visit de Matrimandir? Maybe you were there for too short a stay?
I visited the outside, but not the inside. I was there for almost 3 months, but was doing a lot of work in Sadhana Forest, which is farther away from the main grounds...
