In the Beginning of April, a Murti of the Divine Mother in her form of Tara, the compassionate Divine Mother , was installed in a new temple in our ashram.
SHE is the embodiment of love , wisdom and compassion much like the famous Chinese Mother of Mercy, Kuan-Yin . There are many examples in different cultures of this Divine energy which we address with ultimate reverence as “Mother”.
Mother is the One that gives, she gives to all her children, without discrimination life....she gives birth, she gives life with infinite equanimity.
She does not decide...” this child is later giving me trouble I will not give birth to it...”. No she simply loves, cares and holds with acceptance.
This is the Feminine Principle that we call Mother!
To see HER love, to experience HER love we have to chuck out all labels and start to see HER as she is; the ever-changing, all embracing, category-less divine Power! This we call “Mother”.
Wake up from splitting the world into ever smaller boxes, wake up from judging and labeling and categorizing and embrace the freedom of constant change, then we embrace the wisdom of the Mother.
Then, like the innocent child we simply turn with love and trust to the parent.
Once we see that, our behaviour changes, we treat people and the environment, the entire creation with love and respect; we honour the presence of “Mother” in all existence. We become ourselves... Mother to all, because SHE as the feminine principal lives in us all (no matter what gender)! We not only become “HER children” – but become mother to all existence, treating everything with the same love, care, support and respect. We change: We give the most and take the least...as “Mother’s do”!
