llॐ श्री मात्रे नमः ll Jagatkaarani Maa

llॐ श्री मात्रे नमः ll
ll ॐ नमो भगवते रामकृष्णाय ll

Dear Devotees,

The face of Divinity and Innocence, Love and Simplicity, Purity and Compassion is but one - that of the Mother!

Where she is, there you are secure as a being, there you rest assured in peace, there you are enveloped in a causeless love... the raison d'être for life itself!

The Mother, whom we owe our existence to, of whom we are born even as whatever is born or manifest, is also Jaganmata, 'Jagatkarani'....
She is the cause of the Universe, She is the Upadana Karanam, the very material and fabric of this Jagat, and is really what you see as the Jagat itself in perception - non-different from Her - Shakti! The Jagat does not exist independent of Her. She is the Mother, in way impossible of even complete comprehension !

She smiles as the flowers, sways as the branches, stands erect as the Shrine​'s shikhara, and is the clarity of the sky! Inside and outside, Prakrti  (nature), is Her -
all Matter is Her - as a matter of fact!

She is the Dharma making whatever essentially itself. It is remarkable, that the offspring itself is nothing but the Mother, existing in Her alone - it is not just 'any Mother' - She is The Mother!

Knowing Mother as what we are made of, does make a great deal of difference, the Mother abides in us as the cause, never away from us. And what a glory unfolds when that Shakti incarnates as condensed compassion - Sri Sri Ma - compassion without cause or limit!!

​As Guru Maharaj, She teaches Jivas, how to relate to Her. An abiding relationship, where the child can demand nourishment through knowledge.
May this Jayanti day be an Ode to Her, our dearest Maa...
