If you are facing problems, figure out where your spiritual progress is lacking.
One of the marks of spiritual progress is as follows:
Less problems arise in daily life.
If some problems do arise, they fail to create viShaada (sadness, depression) and kShobha (anguish) in one’s mind, as a result of which,
in a clearer, undisturbed mind, solutions arise and show shortcuts to one’s goals.
According to the Law Book of Manu, the first law-giver in the Indian tradition, all parts and aspects of a woman’s body and being are pure and sacred at all times.
One of the rules of japa etc. observances in the tradition is:
mumukShooNaam sadaa kaalah
streeNaam kaalsh cha sarvadaa.
For those seeking liberation (moksha) and for women there is no time restriction; they may do the practice at any time.
It is believed that prayers offered by women are heard more readily.
Women are considered incarnations of Mother Kundalini-shakti.
As we are followers of the right hand tantra path, reverence towards women is most important.
One or twice a year on days sacred to Divine Mother I wash the feet of nine ‘under-age’ forms of Maatri-shakti), nine kanyaa devees and worship them.
The tantric rule is that a man should appear in the presence of a woman, any woman, well-kempt, well-dressed, good-mannered. Also, that if a man is passing a group of women standing somewhere or casually chatting, he must pay them mental reverence as he is passing by.
Younger brother Lakshmana is sent by Rama to the cave of Sugreeva to arouse him from his slumber and do his promised duty. Lakshmana arrives at the entrance to the cave palace. The message is brought to Sugreeva that wrathful Lalkshmana is at the entrance.
Sugreeva asks his wife to go forward and receive Lakshmana and when he calms down, Sugreeva will welcome him;
You go, Tara, because
Na hi streeShu mahaatmaanah
Kva cit kurvanto daaruNam
The noble ones do nothing harsh in the presence of women.
Since we are talking of creating a feminine organization, we must (1) inspire all boys and men to follow above principles, and (2) apply feminine temperaments in solving administrative problems;
—not be managers but be mothers.
What is to be women’s response to such reverence? That is for the incarnations of Kundalini-shakti to (a) contemplate and (b) implement. Who are men to teach them!!
All the principles being enunciated in this document are principles of a feminine organization.
In a spiritual economics or in a spiritual organizational family, therefore, the conveniences of women’s temperament and needs will be given priority as to such issues as working hours and so on.
Fortunately, at times this self has been called by women ‘our bearded mother’ – the greatest compliment I could aspire for.
Do not expect management from me, only motherhood.
