The 9 days and nights, when the Goddess fights the demons and saves the children from negativity (1990-0923); There were 9 times when the major Incarnations of the Mother of the Universe were manifested… with a purpose… to protect her bhaktas… her disciples… her children. This was a binding love… she could not escape it… Mother’s love is binding… and she has to manifest it. This protection in the modern times has… become very complicated… first of all, in the mind, in the life style, in the society… of good human beings… of righteous human beings… fear of the wrong things has entered… like they are afraid say of their priests… their churches… their temples… their mosques… but they are not afraid of God… they don’t believe in God… God Almighty, who is a wrathful God (1991-1013)

As soon as you are born, you are born into some sort of a brand… you are this, or you are that. So the first brand… is of the religion to which you belong… you can’t avoid it… so that very simple, gullible, good people, believers of God, developed this kind of a fear… which was put into their heads by these people, that… if you don’t pay money to us… if you don’t come to the confessions… if you don’t tolerate our nonsense… God will be angry with you. In some religions they believe there is no sin in drinking… or in marrying many women… or in a caste system. All is anti God… absolutely anti God activity perpetuated into the society by these people who are supposed to be in charge of religion. So the first protection Mother had to render is from this conditioning (1991-1013)

The second one is that of country… either you belong to this country or to that country. These days every country is competing with each other in all kinds of corruption, mafia… every country… whether democratic or anything… there is a kind of mafia working everywhere. The so called laws also are only for people who are simple, gullible, pure citizens… and not for the people who put those laws on them. They take bribes… and all kinds of things… but still they are supposed to be in charge of law… doing all kinds of illegal things. So this is the second type of fear that is in the minds of modern time (1991-1013)

Then the third thing was the war… wars after wars came in… so many people developed a kind of a fear about war… and as a reaction they developed a kind of a stupid ego… and they are becoming very aggressive people. Then comes the fear of race… racialism. Now I’m told that neo-nazism is taking it’s own course… this is another area which is very dangerous (1991-1013)

Now in the minds of seekers – they have been to many gurus… they have read all kinds of books… but they are seekers after all… and so it has to be excused. So that’s why they develop lots of problems, not only in their bodies but also in their brains. It’s a very delicate thing. For them now the guru has become the last word… you cannot say anything against the guru – when they start suffering, then they may accept… but, if you want to take out that guru… it’s very delicate… and they might be hurt… it’s a very delicate operation (1991-1013)

Then the modern society… the less said the better… the norms of modern society are given to us by people who are characterless… like Freud… who had no sense of morality… or by drunkards. But if you see… the abandonment of our value system comes through drinking. These days everybody can be a drunkard… and there’s no shame about it. With that drinking, our value system started dropping down… and people have accepted now that the normal thing is abandonment (1991-1013)

Formerly… the parents used to support a person if he would take to God… to a righteous life… or to something higher – if they saw these qualities in the child they used to be happy. But these days it’s the other way round… the parents don’t like it. To fight the parents also is a big problem… so this kind of a fear is also there… that my mother, or father should not know. You can say from all sides the fear is burning, like flames… and we are now here, in the Kali Yuga… and have started Sahaja Yoga (1991-1013)

So the way we have to work out our protection has to be mutual… the Mother of course is there to protect you all the time… her powers are there to protect you… but surprisingly in the modern times there’s one condition which has to be fulfilled… because in those days good were good, and evil were evil… there was no mixing… so once they asked for the Goddess, they accepted her… she came in her real form… and she worked it out. But in these modern times you must know that all these evil things are also lingering in your heads little bit, here and there (1991-1013)

People are extremely superficial… they are prone to the mass attitudes, fashions, things like that… their personality is not that much developed as that of those bhaktas, who knew they were right… who knew they were righteous… that whatever they were doing was correct. So the Sahaja Yogis which are today here, have to realise that all these things are surrounding us… and these evil forces are also there. There are some within us… some are without… so it looks to be a very difficult task… but it’s not… because one condition, if you can understand… is that you have to recognise me. I know, I’m Mahamaya… I’m really very clever at it… but I’m truthful… but still I’m Mahamaya… so to recognise me what should we do… if we recognise, then you are protected. And the cleansing is the simplest thing in Sahaja Yoga… is to be collective. If you are not collective… then know that something wrong with you… if you are collective… if you are enjoying the collective, then you should know that you are clean… no blemish is there… you are absolutely alright (1991-1013)

Now the second part of this Mahamaya business… I had to be very close to you… I had to be extremely close… to talk to you… to have a rapport… to tell you everything about Sahaja Yoga… to make you absolutely aware of yourself. This had to be done… and with all these complications within your mind… within your heart… within your body… I had to work it out. To come close in the real form would have been very dangerous… so one had to be a Mahamaya. But despite that, if you could recognise me… to understand me… that I am Divine Personality… an Incarnation… that’s all the Deities want. Then they’ll look after you in every way… they’ll give you all the powers… all the satisfaction… all the protection that you want. This is the condition which for a rational mind is very difficult to understand… that how can Adi Shakti be in one body… how can the infinite become finite. Human beings cannot do that. God can do it… he is God after all (1991-1013)

I see people when I talk to them… they start talking to me little frivolously… not with that depth… not with that feeling that I am Mahamaya. Then some of them even answer me… explanations. Of course this freedom I have given you deliberately… but you must understand that you have to talk to me in a way that you would talk to Adi Shakti… is very important (1991-1013)

Then how you behave is very important… you should not be artificial… or superficial… but best is to put your hand on your heart… both the hands… and just try to feel… your Mother is Adi Shakti… she has created all this Universe… she has created all this world… and she is for your protection – as soon as I come to know about your problems, my attention can work it out. All this protection is given to you because you are seekers of truth… and the truth is that I am the Adi Shakti incarnated. Once this truth becomes one with your self, there’s nothing to fear… because all the Deities know this fact… they know about this Incarnation very well… they’ll do anything to substantiate your belief in every way… my photographs… in the sky… they are so anxious. They are behind the stage… before the stage… all sides of the stage… listening to me… feeling very happy that I am telling you the truth. But the way they recognise… the way they act… they never disobey. If you behave in the same manner, you are completely protected from all these problems I have told you about. Once you have recognised, you will have no fear from anyone… and the more you show that recognition, the more you realise it, you get higher and higher… not only spiritually, but every way, mentally, socially, economically, politically… is very remarkable… that not only that you recognise me as a Mother who loves you very much… but a Mother who is powerful to protect you (1991-1013)

Supposing I correct you sometimes… instead of feeling sad, you should see that how fortunate I am that Adi Shakti herself is correcting me… she is taking interest in me… how fortunate I am… to be born at this time, to be with her in her great work (1991-1013)

So just behind this recognition is all the powers… but if you are doubting… still half way this that, then things won’t be alright. You shouldn’t worry about your reputation… just go full speed into any direction, knowing one thing… that you are my child, and that I am Adi Shakti… everything that looks horrible will become better… you have seen it now… don’t worry about anything… just know that I am the Adi Shakti… that all the powers of Gods and Goddesses… and all that are within me… and they ‘are’ within me… and they are all looking after. But if that recognition is not there… they are not going to recognise you either (1991-1013)
