Different stages of human evolution took place when all these incarnations came on this earth.
Incarnations have to come. If you reason it out you will understand why an incarnation is needed to come on this earth. The unconscious can guide you through symbols which appear in your dreams. There are so many other ways by certain happenings the unconscious, the Divine can guide you; but It is all vague, extremely vague.
The conscious must have a mouth to explain itself. It must have proper body to be able to communicate what it has to say otherwise how are you going to have a rapport with unconscious.
You cannot have any rapport with the divine unless and until you know you are Atman, your Atma. Before that whatever you may try may create a depth in you, a cerenity in you, a character in you but still you cannot have a direct rapport.
You are to be connected. Now somebody has to do this job. That is why many incarnations came on this earth.
In the womb of a pregnant woman, two babies — a believer and an unbeliever — are having a conversation:
UNBELIEVER: Do you believe in life after birth?
BELIEVER: Yes, of course I do. It is obvious that there is life after birth. Our purpose of being here where we are now is to become strong enough and to get ready for that future life.
U: That’s nonsense! There can be no life after birth! Can you imagine what such life would be like?
B: Well, I don’t know all the details, but I believe that there will be more light and that we will perhaps be able to walk on our feet and to eat with our mouth.
U: Nonsense! It is impossible to walk on one’s feet and eat with one’s mouth! That’s ridiculous! We have a navel-string to feed us. This is what I want to tell you: there can be no life after birth, because our real life — the navel-string — is too short already.
B: Yet, I am sure that life after birth is quite possible. Everything will just be a little bit different. You can imagine this.
U: But, nobody has ever returned from there! Life simply ends with birth. Properly speaking, life is nothing but a long period of suffering in the dark.
B: Oh, no, of course not! I don’t know exactly what our life will be like after birth, but in any case we will meet Mum there, and she will take care of us.
U: Mum? Do you believe in Mum, then? And where do you think she is?
B: She is everywhere around us, we abide in her, we are able to move and live because of her; without her, we simply cannot exist.
U: Nonsense! I have never seen any Mum — thus, it is obvious that she does not exist!
U: No, I cannot agree with you. Sometimes, when everything around us is quiet, you can hear her singing and feel her stroking our world. I am convinced that our real life will only begin after birth. And you?
“the World Mother is coming into physical manifestation at this critical time to expound the teachings of the Christ,
I believe that the Revelation of our Mother-God is only the beginning of the Cosmic Surprises awaiting us in the Age of Woman
We cannot have a Father in Heaven without a Mother.
When the Comforter comes in the outstanding form of a Woman to teach us the truth about the Motherhood of God the teachings of the Christ will be better understood and more universally acceptable
In ” The Perfect Way ” by Dr. Anna Kingsford, in Lecture Nine, page 293, paragraph 43, the writer mentions the Holy Ghost, the Third Person, the Aspect of God as the Mother, “having been ignored or suppressed by a priesthood desirous of preserving a purely Masculine Conception of the Godhead. ”
Her influence will never be withdrawn, for She will abide with us forever, as Her Son said when He was preparing to leave the world after His brief ministry. This is a great Promise, and if I have understood aright, the Comforter will be with us for many years in the flesh
WHO IS THIS WOMAN? Of all the women in the world, WHO HAS BEEN CHOSEN BY THE SUPREME TO FULFIL THE ROLE OF THE COMFORTER OF THE WORLD WHEN IT ENTERS THE COSMIC CRUCIBLE?
The World Mother will be the first human being to do the “greater works” prophesied by Jesus the Christ, and She will not only do them but also teach us how to do them in the ordinary course of the daily life.”
“You don’t have to pay for it, you don’t have to exert for it, you don’t
have to do anything, but you have to desire. This is the point I am trying
to make, that if you do not desire from your heart, then God is not going
to fall at your feet, now please desire for Me, is He?
It’s a simple thing like that, and if you people understand that you have to really desire it,
because it’s such a vicious circle I must tell you, that this Kundalini is
not here the picture, the Kundalini is the pure desire within you.
Is the desire which is not yet manifested, it is not yet awakened in the sense
that it is acting, but it has not acted. So, if so, how much important it
is that you should have the desire to be one with the Divine, to be in
Yoga, to be one with your Spirit.”

CHAPTER-2 : TRANSCENDENTAL KNOWLEDGE (SANKHYA YOGA), SLOKA
“NA JAYATE MRIYATE VA KADACIN
NAYAM BHUTVA BHAVITA VA NA BHUYAH
AJO NITYAH SASVATO’YAM PURANO
NA HANYATE HANYAMANE SARIRE.”
THE ATMA IS NEITHER BORN NOR DOES IT DIE AT ANY TIME, NOR HAVING BEEN IT WILL CEASE TO EXIST AGAIN. IT IS UNBORN, ETERNAL, PERMANENT, AND PRIMEVAL. THE ATMA IS NOT DESTROYED WHEN THE BODY IS DESTROYED.
“Below the Mooladhara Chakra, which I have shown you there down below, lies the most fearful area of Hell.It exists. It is there. We maybe not believe in it, but it is there, and it can be proved.
In the collective subconscious, as I have told you, when we die we get into it. Normally, not abnormally, but normally. Those people who have been extremely unhappy in life, who have been tortured and suppressed, who are being made very miserable and have a malice burning in their hearts, when they die they still have the vindictiveness and they want to make everyone else a miserable personality.
They can’t see happiness around. Such people, even if when they die they linger along in this area, which is not gone into the collective subconscious. The collective subconscious receives a normal personality who has just accepted death as a transition. Actually, when we die we really do not die, only part of us, the earth element drops down. And part of the water element also. But the rest of the elements that form this body, the different koshas, the Kundalini that goes out and the Atma that rises, all that put together as Soul you can call it, all that goes into the collective subconscious and starts going smaller and smaller.
Into the area of that collective subconscious, where it is to be placed for getting smaller and smaller. But the people who die, as I told you, as the great sufferers, with great desires and lust, very depraved and debased people, who indulge in alcoholism and drugs and sex, who make their life miserable, who are violent to themselves and not to others, who are not aggressive but are aggressed, who commit suicide, they do not go to the appointed place.
They stick on around and some of them are really busybodies. They try to torture other souls. All the mental cases that you find in this world, suffer from the obsession or the possession by these entities. We call them as Bhoot and Pashatra. You may not believe it because people don’t believe in Bhoots.
You believe it or not but they exist. These people are not ambitious people, but they are sly, they are mysterious, but they are afraid. So they try to find out this type of people, they enter into the psyche of such people and they make them even worse. They make their lives miserable and they make such a person absolutely abnormal. When the psychology starts treating such abnormal people they perhaps do not know what they are up to.
The psychologist, when they get in contact with such abnormal people, they themselves are influenced or contaminated, they catch. From these depraved and debased, lusty, sexy people, and they themselves become so abnormal. Because they seldom have any relationship with normal people, that they start putting up theories absolutely abnormal. An abnormal personality is made as a normal personality and is made to be accepted by everyone.
So they start with the theory that you should not suppress your desires, you should become very expressive and absolutely liberated as far as these desires are concerned. “All right, go ahead!” But they are not aware of the other side of the human beings, that those who do like this can get into the other trap and can become egoistical.
It starts as a trip of their Ego then, they become so egoistical that they forget what is saint, what is God, what is holiness. That is what has happened in the Western countries. Perhaps maybe the war, in the war so many people were killed like that, they must have possessed these people. And such patients must have gone to these psychologists and these psychologists must have come out with these unique ideas of psyche being conditioned if you tell them about religion.
Psyche is conditioned, no doubt. If you all the time tell the child “Don’t do this, don’t do that”, the child gets conditioned, no doubt. If you discipline a person too much, he might get conditioned, no doubt. But if you are a model yourself, if the father and mother both are the models of goodness then the child accepts it without being conditioned. This is the central path of evolution.”
Shree Mataji Nirmala Devi, Beyond Human Consciousness, Delhi ( India ), 23 February 1977
Anybody who tries to be individualistic will be lost, will be no more in the circulation.
This I’ve told you hundred, and hundred and one time. And the spirit can only grow in collectivity because the nature of spirit is universal.
You cannot achieve anything exclusively.Those who tried it will fail. You all have to join together and should know that you all awakened people. In the Primordial Being, you are like the awakened cells who know the Primordial Being and who have the powers by which they can communicate the powers of God to other people.
You all have to be absolutely one with each other, not to find faults but to love and enjoy each other. That’s the best way you can move.” H.H.Mataji Shree Nirmala Devi ,
Are You Seekers, 24 November 1980.
The Annapurna Ashtakam is one of the shlokas or hymns to Dea or Devi in Her personification as Annapurna, composed in Sanskrit by the great eighth century enlightened sage (jnana), vedanta philosopher, religious reformer and monastic Sri Adi Shankara
O MOTHER ANNAPŪRṆĀ! Īśvari, 2 who ever bestoweth happiness, Granting gifts and dispelling fear. O mine of gems of beauty, Who washeth away all sin, Who giveth purity to Thy devotees, Who purifieth the mountain range, Which is undestroyed even at the time of dissolution, Presiding Deity of Kāśī, Maheśvarī in every truth, O vessel of mercy! grant me aid.
O Thou who hast clothed Thyself in cloth of gold, Decked with ornaments made of many and varied gems, Whose breasts rounded like a water jar, Are resplendent with their necklace of pearls, Whose beauty is enhanced by the fragrance of the Kashmir aloe. O Devī! who presidest over the city of Kāśī, O Mother Annapūrṇā Iśvarī, O vessel of mercy, grant me aid!
O giver of the bliss of Yoga, Destructress of enemies, Inspirer of devotion to dharma and artha, Who art lustrous as the light waves of sun, moon, and fire, Protectress of the three worlds Giver of all dominion and all desires, Presiding Devī over the city of Kāśī, O vessel of mercy, grant me aid!
Thou who maketh Thy dwelling in the cave of Mount Kailāsa, Who art Gaurī, Umā, and Śankarī, Kaumārī, Who giveth us power to understand the meaning of Nigama, Thou art the letters of the bīja Om , Opener of the panels of the door of liberation, Presiding Devī over the City of Kāśī, O vessel of mercy, grant me aid!

Īśvarī of all men on earth, The waves of Thy blue-black hair look (beautiful) like plaits. Īśvarī who ever giveth food, Bestower of happiness to all, who advanceth all people, Presiding Devī over the City of Kāśī, O vessel of mercy, grant me aid!
Thou givest all instruction onwards from the time of initiation, And art the cause of the threefold manifestation of Śambhu. Scented with the Kashmir aloe, Thou art the Īśvarī of the three regions. Thou art triple waved, And the night of dissolution. Thou art the cause of all lasting things, And fulfiller of the desires of those who desire. It is Thou who maketh the greatness of peoples. Presiding Devī over the City of Kāśī, O vessel of mercy, grant me aid!
Thou, Devī, art adorned with all various kinds of gems, Daughter of Dakṣa, Beautiful, pleasing the world With the sweet milk of Thy left breast. Thou art Maheśvarī, for Thou givest prosperity to all, For Thou givest welfare, And fulfillest the desires of your devotees. Presiding Devī over the City of Benares, O vessel of mercy, grant me aid!
Thou art She who shinest with the brilliance of millions of suns, moons, and fires. Whose earrings are brilliant as the sun, moon, and fire, Who art the cause of the colour of both sun and moon, Who holdeth a rosary, a book, a noose, and a goad. Presiding Devī over the City of Benares, O vessel of mercy, grant me aid!
Protectress of Kṣatriyas, Great dispeller of all fear, Mother, who art an ocean of mercy, In very truth the ever auspicious giver of salvation, The cause of the beauty of Viśveśvara, It was Thou who made Dakṣa to weep. Remover of all ills, Presiding Devī over the City of Benares, O vessel of mercy, grant me aid!
