Sri Swamiji

The Divine Mother

The Motherhood of God

Lord Dattatreya in his love for nature, all sentient and insentient beings has a unending and intimate relationship with Mother Goddess; the protecting power of the universe. He is even identical with this Mother principle.

We all are children of this world Mother. She gives us everything, facilities, knowledge and liberation from the cycle of birth and death. Who ever worships her is sure to be blessed with all auspicious things. The Trinity Bhrama, Vishnu and Shiva (Lord Dattatreya being the Lord of the Trinity) derive their powers of creation, protection, and annihilation out of the ultimate energy; the Universal Mother. She is the presiding deity Raja Rajeswari of Sri Chakra.

Raja Rajeswari the Universal Mother

Raja Rajeswari is the presiding deity of Sri Chakra. She is the mother of love and grace. All sentient and insentient being are linked to, and dependent upon her power for their existence. She is the personification of the Divine desire to create the universe and the Divine desire to merge the creation back into the ultimate Brahman (God the father). This two-fold desire is the basis of love, the vivifying bond that ties the Creator and the created. She controls our minds and sensory organs and holds the key to transcendental knowledge. She resides on the top of the head (Sahasrara), and also in the second chakra (Swadisthana).

She has four hands and three eyes. She wields in her four hands the noose, the goad, sugar cane, bow, and five flowered arrows. Her three eyes are Sun, Moon and fire representing the three triads in creation. Her crown is decorated with the crescent moon, the symbol of divine delight. The noose represents strong determination and love by which She binds the whole creation. The goad is the symbol of the power of knowledge. It is the wrath of fiery emotions by which the whole creation is spurred into activity. The sugar cane stem depicts the mind principle of human beings. The five flowered arrows are the five tanmatras, sound, touch, form, taste and smell which are the sources of the five elements. She has three forms; the gross physical form (sthula sharira), subtle astral form, (sukshma sharira) and the causal archetypal form of the macrocosm and microcosmic creation.

When She is meditated upon, this ultimate energy, in the first and second chakra (Muladhara and Swadhisthana) the sadhaka (spiritual aspirant) performs the equivalent to an internal fire worship. She emerges out of the lotus chakras as Kundalini the supreme power elevating the sadhaka.

The graceful Mother removes evil and develops goodness within all of us. She is the power of Brahman; pure consciousness embodied. She is the bliss of " Sat - Chit - Ananda " existence, knowledge and bliss.

" Do good and be good "
