Mother Divine is known and honoured by various names. Some of which are:
Jagdamba: Mother of creation.
Parmeshwari: Greatest among Gods
Maha Shakti : Strongest and most powerful.
The three energies that govern this universe, Creative (Brahma), Maintenance (Vishnu) , and Renewal (Shiva), all exist together in Divine Mother, and that’s why at the request of many Gods, Mother Durga was able to kill Mahishasur, the most powerful demon ever existed.
Vishwa Mohini: Most attractive.
This universe born out of Her energy is so attractive. It mesmerizes and binds you.
Maha Maya: Greatest illusion.
This creation, created by the playful and illusive energy of Divine Mother is the greatest illusion. You can see it, touch it, feel it, experience it, but in reality it is not there. <3
Crossing the Ocean of Maha Maya
On the path of yoga we honour Maha Maya, but knowing that it is only playful and illusive energy, and move toward the reality.
Anyone who has crossed this ocean of illusion has said that it was only because of the grace of the Master. You need to make effort but it alone is not enough. You will need the guidance and grace of the Master.
“It is because of the grace of my Master that my eyes are reversed. Now they look inward. Because of the grace, for me the ocean of illusion has dried, and Truth has appeared.” Meera
As you honour Mother Divine, honour your Master too. They are one and the same. <3
I know a man
Who gave all his wealth
To his son
He lost both
My Guru gave me all
And as I began to crawl
I prayed, please be kind
Leash me from behind
My mind may sway
Cut my feet
But don’t let me
Guru was even kinder
He neither leashed me
Nor cut my feet
Nor let me
Run away <3 <3
