Please understand, first and foremost relationship is Mother. Ability to learn, even idea to relate starts with Mother. How to relate starts with mother. Understand, your idea to relate, your ability to relate starts with mother – mother’s contribution in your life either by doing something or by not doing something.
Please understand, even she was not there in your life, the impact of that remains forever. Either she is there or not there, her impact on you remains on you forever. If she was there, if she is there in a positive way; if she was not there, her absence impacts you forever.
I tell you, Mother is too important way to connect what you think as life.
In Vedic tradition our Rishis were aware, your ability to connect with the mother should be directed to Cosmos. It should inspire, it should awaken your higher consciousness. It should inspire your higher consciousness to express through you. It should awaken your higher consciousness. Connecting with life as mother is the most sweetest, most beautiful, most easiest form to ever connect.
Please understand, my childhood was full of spiritual experiences, amazing spiritual masters. Great yogis, like Raghupati Yogi, Vibhudanada Puri, the personalities of their stature. Ramsuratkumar, Annamalai Swamigal, Sadhu Om, I can list the personalities. Great spiritual personalities and I was exposed to all the spiritual thought currents and traditions like Vedanta, Shaiva Siddhanta, Shaivism. Even the thought currents of Sankhya, Yoga, Nyaya Vaisheshika, Purva Mimamsa, Uttar Mimamsa, various Yogic Sampradayas. But I tell you, I find most easiest, most powerful, most inspiring, most exciting way to connect with life as the form of Mother. It’s mother worship, I myself chose, after being exposed to so many spiritual masters, experiences, and philosophies. I tell you, if you want tremendous peace and healing in your inner space, chose mother worship.
Even with your guru or your Ishta Devata (chosen god) relate as Mother, you will see, the kind of healing in your bio-memory, it will lead to extraordinary healing and unimaginable healing, extraordinary completion, unimaginable completion.
Blessed are those, who had responsible mother till you became 14. Actually till 14 only you need, till you become physically mature, you need mother. Bless it are those who had life around their mother till 14. I tell you, till 14 if you had mother living around you, living with you then you know how to connect with mother. You don’t need a separate lesson to connect with the Divine. So much completion will happen to you. So much means really really so much.
I tell you, there are various attitudes, bhaavas, techniques, methods to connect with the divine, higher consciousness, but nothing like the Maatru Bhaava, connecting with the mother. At least in these 9 days, connect with the life as mother, the cosmic mother. I tell you, then you will understand you will never be the same again after these 9 nights. These 9 nights not only you will wake up, you will be awakened. If you can connect with the life, with the same attitude of connecting with your mother, and if you had incompletions with your mother, complete with that first. And connect with the cosmos, the cosmic mother. You will not just wake up, you will be awakened.
I myself have a great mother and amazing connection with life in the form of mother. Even though I had darshans of different gods, goddesses. Mahadeva himself in the form of Arunagiri Yogeshwara but everything was in the, with the undercurrent of mother. Even Arunagiri Yogeshwara, he was so much Mother for me than guru. Even Ragupati Yogi, a old yogi, so much motherliness I experience with him than his Gurugiri, than him being a guru.
I tell you, of course, Mata Vibhudananda Puri, she was a woman, an elderly woman by nature, naturally you will experience her motherhood. But even with Raghupati Yogi, the kind of motherliness I experienced is amazing. Connect with cosmos in the form of mother you will experience so much, so much completion, so much motherliness in everything.
People will experience so much motherliness from you in everything. I tell you, when motherliness starts oozing out in you, even on the chairs you sit will become complete. It won’t feel the heaviness of you. It will feel you as blessing. The ground on which you walk will feel blessed by the touch of your feet. The air you breathe will be blessed. People whom you see with your eyes will experience the love and compassion. I tell you, nothing can be compared to receiving the love of motherliness and sharing radiating motherliness. If you can’t radiate, receive and radiate, whoever you maybe, you waste your life. You are missing one the major dimensions of your life.
Whether you relate with your Guru or your God, it can be any god, Shiva, Vishnu, Parvati, Durga, Kali, Ganesha, Subramanya, any God, if you can relate with that tremendous motherliness, If you can perceive motherliness from your god or guru and radiate that motherliness to the people around you, you have succeeded in game of completion. You will bring so much completion into you and to others. So much completion into you and to others.
My Navratri message to all of you — connect with the whole world as you connect with your mother. Be a child to life, be a mother to people you are giving life. Be a child to the life to receive life in you. Be a mother to people to whom you are giving life, that is enough. You will bring so much of healing, and completion to planet earth wherever you move, whatever you do. Whether you are a professional engineer, lawyer, doctor or Politician, political leader, celebrity, spiritual leader, whatever you are doing, motherliness completes you and others.
