About Matrimandir and the Park of Unity
In this book of colour photographs, the Matrimandir and its surroundings are portrayed in many modes. The first section, "The Place", evokes the beauty and many moods of the area through some dramatic pictures. The next section, "The Work", shows different aspects of work, from the construction stages to painting, cleaning and polishing, landscaping and planting, and maintaining the golden disks. The final section, "The People", features the residents of Auroville, many of them children, as they celebrate, meditate, and interact with the Matrimandir and its gardens. An introduction provides a brief history of the Matrimandir, beginning with the Mother's conception and her vision of the Matrimandir as "the central cohesive force" for the growth of Auroville.
