Aeon Books announces the publication of The New Way, a study in the rise and the establishment of a Gnostic society, Volume 3 by Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet. This book completes her study begun in Volumes 1 & 2 and focuses on the Individual and the contemporary process of evolving a completely new condition of being, called the Supramental by Sri Aurobindo.
The author begins Volume 3 with a revelatory analysis of Genesis and its description of mental man, representative of our present species. She continues with a discussion of religionÂs promises of escape from the Earth and the necessity of embedding a new consciousness and life in the Earth itself and not in some heaven outside or above it. Volume 3 contains an extensive discussion of how this rooting is accomplished by the Individual and the Collectivity.
Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet continues her analysis of the MotherÂs Temple, the highest and sole example of sacred architecture known in our time, and its relevance as a guide to the aspirant on the path to a supramental status. She goes into detail about how the MotherÂs Temple/Chamber can be our guide, its very organisation and structure giving us a three-dimensional plan of our new status of being, a model of the new man.
In this volume the author presents the well known drawing by Leonardo da Vinci of a Man in a Circle and Square (the Vitruvian Man) and reveals its connection to the MotherÂs Temple. In many diagrams she shows the impact on various parts of the body subject to the Transcendent, Cosmic and Individual powers that are exerting a pressure for change in our times. This evolutionary movement is in the process of shifting the pivot of the human being to a higher poise that is implicit in a rise to a new status. She uses LeonardoÂs inspired drawing as Âthe symbol of the human being in a transitional stage, in evolution from human-physical being to a divine species.Â
The authorÂs new understanding of Time and its nature as the driving force in the process of becoming are seen to be an aid to the Individual in his movement forward and discussed at length in this volume. She writes about the importance of experiencing Whole Time, the complete cycle of experience, previously unknown and now open to humanity and with it the inevitable conquering of Death, which is the scourge of human life.
