Heart 4 Deities

Heart Chakra – Aspect or Deity

Jagadamba… the Mother of the Universe, residing in the centre heart… part of Adi Shakti, the Desire Power of God… first incarnated 14000 years back, and whose qualities include security, and who controls the sternum bone and antibody production, and who incarnates many times to kill and destroy the evil forces, the Rakshasas, or devilish people. The Primordial Mother… who is Mahalakshmi, who is the Protector, and who kills all the demons and devils both inside you and without, and is called as Jagadamba, the Mother of the Universe.

The Deity on the right heart, with qualities of the ideal father and husband… Shri Rama… the ideal, benevolent King… is the embodiment of all the good qualities in a man. Shri Rama being Sankochi… means he’s a man full of Grace. Shri Rama was known to be a very formal person… Sankoch… that he would go to any extent to bear upon himself the problems, than to tell others to do something… this is one of the greatest qualities of Shri Rama… that he would not order anyone do anything for him. The softness of Shri Rama goes to the extremes… which I call the Sankoch. There’s no word in English language… because you have ‘formality’… which is a very insipid word to describe Sankoch… it’s an action… ‘formality of the heart’… in action you see.

Shri Shiva… resides in our heart… is unlimited compassion, and whose Shakti is Shri Parvati. Shiva… the Destroyer, is Innocence personified… who beautifies, and gives joy. He who puts lights into Mother’s Photos, who creates aesthetics, makes the vibrations; Who can neutralise poisons. Who gives Sat Chit Anand; Who gives longevity and who teaches, by receding from the heart. Shiva is the Guru… Parvati is the Shakti. Shiva is to be taken as Guru… Shiva is the one who is our Guru… he is our Spirit.

Heart Chakra – Aspect or Deity

The Unity… of your attention, called as Jiva… and your Spirit, called as Shiva… is the Yoga. These two must meet… unless and until they meet, you cannot reach your Absolute. What we should do is first of all establish our own Shiva Principle… is the principle of joy… principle of love… and principle of truth I should say.

Now Vishnu is there… his power is there for you to rise up to the Shiva Principle… one is supplementary for another… you cannot reach Shiva without Vishnu… and you cannot stick to Shiva’s Principle, if you have not understood Vishnu’s Principle. Kundalini itself rises through the Sushumna Nadi… and she is the Principle, she is the Tattwa of Shiva… and she rises through the channel that is made by Vishnu, out of the evolutionary process. So how can you do away with one of them… one is the road… another is the destination.
