9:I am Brahma.

I am Brahma. Treasure of Knowledge With Folded Hands
Everything is done by Lord Panduranga.   The harmony of Nature
Know Ye! my heart.   Introduction of the SOUL   Mahalaxmi Has Blessed Me
On seeing one's own SOUL HYMN OF LOVE FOR GOD.
Ode in praise of Mahalaxmi


Mother Mahalaxmi by hearing this introduction of the soul, we feel as if our third eye of knowledge has opened, and that we have come to know a small bit about the mystical creation. But one question remains about the soul, which is about its deep, silent, peaceful visage; The look of innocence, it has; Purity it is radiating, and yet it is looking like a King unto itself. Where did the soul get all these qualities?

Oh! Vama, this is the fruit of the journey of the soul, when it traverses through various species. When, it performs the deeds and duties suitable to the species, the SOUL’s manifestation develops accordingly. The innocence and purity of infants, the sovereign look of a mother lioness, the peaceful nature of the strong species like elephants and so on. Taking these ‘Valaya’, embellishments of several births, the SOUL finally achieves the most evolved birth , that of a human being.

But then in the human –birth, is there any other aspect of spiritual development still left out?

For this, we will have two revise all that we discussed in today’s discussions. But in short: In the human birth When one adds devotion. Then the soul. Shall realise its form Close to that of God ( while this dialogue is going on,Triguna appears to have got up lightly from her sleep. As soon as theYoginis see this they start running helter-skelter) All Yoginis (speaking all together in a confused manner) Oh dear, the devotee Triguna is coming out of her sleep. Run run. Let us go back to our places and become statues. It should not be known to Triguna that we had held a meeting here and discussed lot of mystical questions

But where shall I take my place? Because in my lotus seat, the soul of Triguna is still dancing in a trance. Oh! Forget it. I would rather hide in the heart of my devotee Triguna. ( Mother Mahalaxmi, then places her hand affectionately, on the forehead of Triguna, and goes and hides in her heart. With the light touch, Triguna’s eye’s open a bit and and she looks at the lotus seat. There instead of the expected statue of Mahalaxmi, she sees an astral form. Her eyes open with amazement and she gets up looking at that astral form, and suddenly her entire body is filled with goose pimples. There is a light musical sound in the background)

Triguna (to herself) :
God bless me, God bless me! This astral form is none other than my own mirror image. But then this astral form has an expression on her face and look in her eyes, which is so different from my own? She is very peaceful , and appears as if she has been performing penance for last thousands of years. She has a look of innocence and asceticism and yet she looks to be in complete command like a king ; but what is this,she is looking at me with affection, and yet looks at my body in a desireless fashion like an on-looker. Oh dear, this is my own ’Brahmaswaroop Atma’, SOUL as an incarnation of Lord Brahma himself . But what is this, suddenly my SOUL is transforming and…. Oh! Dear… this new form … it is of my dear Mother Mahalaxmi????

( While thinking like this, Triguna rubs her eyes and becomes wide awake and looks hard at the lotus seat. She finds that soul has only transformed into the statue of Mahalaxmi. Overcome with a devotional tremor, Triguna starts pronouncing the name of Mahalaxmi, repeatedly and falls at the feet of the statue)

Triguna (to herself) :
Shri Mahalaxmey namah, Shri Mahalaxmey namah,… Hail Mother Mahalaxmi.. (Devotee Triguna is lying prostate in front of Mahalaxmi and uttering this chant continuously. Miraculously, the pot that Mahalaxmi is holding in her hand tips forward and golden blossoms start pouring from it. Outside, the dawn is breaking and birds have started chirping. The Sun-God has appeared over the horizon on the east in a pleasing fashion. There is a musical sound in the environment.At this time the friends of Triguna have returned in the morning with flowers and articles of worship, to perform the morning ‘ puja’. When they step into the room, they see that the statue of Mahalaxmi and all other Yoginis are in place, just as they had left them last evening, except for the fact that from the pot in the hands of Mahalaxmi golden blossoms have showered.)

Sakhi,lady friend:
Oh dear, what is this miracle? There is a shower of golden blossoms from the pot in the hands of Mahalaxmi? (Triguna folds her hands and looks at all with tears in her eyes.)

I just cannot understand this miracle? Triguna please tell what happened?

Triguna: (thinking seriously):
You remember? Yesterday evening, after the 'Arati', we were observing that if we wait for some more time, these statues might become alive and talk with us!

Yes I remember, but then what happened?

Well, I became sleepy, and …….

All Sakhis:
And ???

And Mahalaxmi bestowed her grace on me! And as if to say, the most merciful mother herself seemed to answer all the deep mystical questions, I had been harbouring in my heart, all these days. I feel so blessed! So blessed! So blessed!

Song 8 :

Mahalaxmi Prasanna Jhali
Mahalaxmi Has Blessed Me

Mahalaxmi has blessed me. !!!

Such a thing has never happened,
A group of goddesses incarnated.
They played games, and discussed
The most wondrous things animated . ||1||

'Paativratya' is valued by God
Yoga and meditation are wholesome
A clean spiritual garment
Is the gift with which we’ve come. ||2||

Life is a poetry
Like a lotus let's win over
Our heart is God's abode.
Says the smiling creator. ||3||

Apply Haldi-Kumkum
Offer nine devotional blossoms.
The divine vibrations echo
Bestowing mystic hymns. ||4||

There is no birth nor death
Soul is like a 'Tapasvi' 1
She is a travelling pilgrim
Realising ‘Aham Brahmasmi’. ||5||

1. Tapasvi : One who has achieved spiritual
enlightenment through a focused effort
