PERSONAL ENCOUNTERS WITH THE DIVINE MOTHER
Navrarti Begins March 23
I am the Mother. I take many forms. I take the form of Saraswati Ma, the goddess of the arts, music, wisdom, thought, creativity and heart. I take the form of Mother Durga, goddess of power and eliminating demons. I take the form of Lashkmi, goddess of health, wealth and prosperity. I take the form of Mother Earth as in the natural beauty of Bhumi Devi. I take the form of Mother Kali, Mother Mary, Mother Tara and Mother Quan Yin.
Every day my power is experienced through your own intuition. When you tap into your own intuition, you're tapping into the power of Saraswati Ma. The intuition is beyond the Mind. The Intuition is tapping into the Divine. When you feed your own family, you are encountering Mother Lashkmi. She is also associated with elements of Mother Earth, such as earth, fire and water. These three elements are required for existence on the planet. When you are dealing with your own inner demons, you are experiencing Mother Durga.
Many of you devotees have seen Me in dreams, visions, personal experiences and appearances. I did not just appear thousands of years ago. I am very much with you in your every day life now. I appear and incarnate in every age. I am right in front of you, but you do not always notice Me.
Let me tell you the story of Paramahansa Yogananda, one of your great swamis. The teacher had prayed to Mother Kali because his brother-in-law did not like the swami's sister praying to Mother Kali. I came to him in a vision and told him his prayers were answered. After that the brother-in-law became more spiritual and the swami's sister worshipped Mother Kali without any disapproval.
I came to Queen Lila of India thousands of years ago as Saraswati Ma. She was greatly devoted to Me. She learned of my mysteries of how I bring wisdom into the world. I granted her wish of always seeing Me whenever she thought of Me. Sri Ram heard this wonderful story as a child from his father's guru.
I appeared in Guyana in October of 2010 as the red kum kum which mysteriously appeared on the Murti of Mother Durga in the Radha Krishna Mandir. Pandit Rudra Sharma saw it first and then many saw it on the internet and in person and believed that I am very real. This happened at a number of mandirs in the same area. Earlier some violence against women occurred in Guyana. I just had to let you know that I bleed whenever the mothers, sisters, aunts, daughters and grandmothers are abused. You must respect women. I reside in every woman and exist in every man as his feminine aspects.
I saw how the children were poisoned by chemicals and heavy metals at Holi in India this year. They died and became sick because you did not use natural, traditional materials. This was preventable and very tragic. I spoke through devotees who spoke out for the children. You can not keep polluting Mother Earth. The Mother is letting you know when enough is enough.
I appeared in India in the 1940's in the Indian Independence Movement through the efforts of many great female politicians like Laxmi Pandit and your great leader, Gandhi. Mother Durga was a symbol of this movement. You see, I am social progress in the world.
I appeared as Mother Mary six times in 1917 in Fatima, Portugal. Over 170,000 saw the Dance of the Sun. Many miracles happened and many believed in Me.
I appear as great female saints in every age. They are doing some great work for Mother Earth and for the poor recently. Look around you. The Mother is everywhere.
There is another very sweet story I will tell you about the power of Mother Lashkmi. There was a devotee of the Mother who went to Harry Singh's Restaurant in Minneapolis because her mother had given her some money to spend for her birthday. As she was there, a couple was dinning at the same time. She ordered her meal and enjoyed eating it very much. At the end of the meal, the waiter told her the couple had paid for her meal. What a beautiful story of how Mother Lashkmi works in the world. I am always watching out for my devotees in every day life. This devotee does not have a whole lot of money in the world, but I am always generous in my gifts I give to my devotees.
Glad to see so many of you have come to see Me for Navaratri. The best worship happens in your every day encounters. When you show love to your fellow human beings, the animals, plants, trees and Mother Earth, this is what pleases Me the most! I am the Mother and I approve of this message!
JAI SHRI MOTHERS! JAI SHRI NAVRATRI!
