A Message from Ma and Bapuji
Hope you are moving that mala, doing japa. Let the fingers move the beads and the mantra dance on the tip of the tongue, says a great teacher.
This is what Shri Ma Sharada Devi said:
Through the mantra, energy is transmitted from Guru to disciple. The positive energy from the Guru flows to the disciple, but simultaneously the negative energy from the disciple flows to the Guru. That’s why when a mantra is given by the Guru, He or she has to accept the negative karma of the disciple. Hence several diseases can come into the Guru’s body.
It is very difficult to be in the role of a Guru, to gladly take in the negative karma of the disciples. If the disciple is good, it becomes easy on the Guru.
If the mere giving of a mantra can do this, please think of what shaktipat has done. Learn to appreciate what Guruji has given by PRACTICE. Meditate regularly and repeat the Rama mantra regularly. This will not only help you but your families and the world at large.
As the great sage Yagnyavalkya said, “Whoever repeats the Rama mantra will help the evolution of seven generations past and future.” Try to comprehend the intensity and depth of this. Do not be fooled by external maya. If possible, do at least 21 malas daily and 125,000 during the two Navratris every year – the nine days prior to Rama’s birth anniversary in April and the nine days of Navratri in October.
May the Lord remove all the obstacles in your practice and inspire your intellect to grab the moment.
Love & Blessings,
Ma & Bapuji
