Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet (Thea) was drawn to India in 1971 by The Mother of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry. During her sadhana she received many keys of knowledge which led to profound realizations regarding the continuation and fulfillment of Sri Aurobindo’s work in India and the world. The greatest key proved to be The Mother’s original vision and measurement of the Inner Chamber of her Temple, the Matrimandir and its luminous core, which she describes as ‘the symbol of the future realisation’. Another key was The Gnostic Circle, a term she used to describe the configuration of the Vedic year, with its synthesis in one circle of the 12 signs of the zodiac and the 9 planets of our solar system. The Tenth Day of Victory, in two volumes, is an autobiographical account of her initiation into the Supramental Yoga and the realizations thereafter.
Shortly before her passing, Thea wrote Ganga, Soul of Indian Culture - Her descent to Earth, a short monograph which she believed captured most perfectly the essence of her applied Indo-centric cosmology.
