Ultimately, It Is one—Energy:

Prosad: Now I come to the question of ''Parmbramhan (The Super being). There the thoughts centers on parents. How is it that there the term male is used in the sense of 'Mahajnan'—Super knowledge and the term female in the sense of 'Mahasahkti'—Super energy? There we don't have any general discussion about creation nor does the question of seeking and getting arise.

Mother: There have been two forms given—Knowledge and Energy. Both these are required in the process of creation. Ultimately, it is one—Energy, that single word. Now knowledge has been conceived as coming in one of the streams from energy, existing in one of its segments

'Mahajnan' and 'Mahashakti'. Now, Mahashakti is issuing forth in various streams. Mahajnan is also similarly issuing forth. You'll find Mahajnan bears many names. Mahashakti, too. But when all these are gathered together and put away into a sheath, they become one single--Shakti. There's nothing else.

Prosad: Then Mother, what you say, comes to this. The Primordial means Mahashakti. Further, Mahajnan is just one form of Mahashakti. Why has this been imagined? If the Primordial is the same as Mahashakti, why does Mahajnan get precedence over it?

Mother: Why, it's not been given any precedence. Well, now see, who takes a more leading role? Man. So is he given more importance. Got it?

Let Realization Be Contingent On Proof:

Prosad: Are the different explanations of the Absolute truth acceptable to reason? If they can put forward enough reasons, they will be acceptable. The explanations may differ. A sum may be worked out by different methods, but the answer must be the same.

No matter whether we may reach travelling along various paths, what we get remains one and the same. In this connection, how is it that science will say something about the mystery of creation, metaphysics something else?

It is through this research or realization that each one gets what he does. Ma-Mahajnan's philosophy of life speaks of a supreme acquisition—can anybody understand that?

Mother: Right you are. Nobody can.

Prosad: Then like the conflict between the Bible and Science--something in some future time will crop up over this, too?

Mother: Yes. People won't be able to accept it—won't be able indeed, all at once. Owing to their settled convictions, they won't be able to accept it. The more the number of intellectuals will grow the more will they take everything in the line of reason?

Prosad: But Mother, isn't here a snag? Your reasons can not, all by them, be understood by people of average intelligence. They require devotion. But how many people will come forward for that, Mother?

Mother: Those devotions won't be required. They begin even with the birth. Do you get the point? You see the path a man treads his mood of life—that is another name of devotion. Now some have put those devotions within bounds, some have left them boundless. All the various channels of the spiritual current have changed their courses. Whatever you do, amounts to spiritual devotion. Everything is spiritual devotion. It has a practical basis.

Something occurs to you in your mind. You get hold of that. That becomes the starting point of your research. Following along its different channels, you go on finding your solutions. Having done that, you emerge successfully from your devotion. Whatever stream you follow there's the question of spiritual devotions.

Prosad: Well mother, is realization contingent of proof in the same way as the experience is?

Mother: No, I can't say, realization is always contingent on proof. It can, however, be said, to some extent it is. It will leave behind a lot of proofs. If the realization is genuine, it will leave behind a lot.


Author's Bio: 

Ma-Mahajnan, a matchless spiritual genius, expressed her entire creation in a state of "Conscious Trance” which has all been stuffed with matters of highly philosophical values and related with strong literary sense. She could not attend even Primary School due to extreme poverty. Strangely, she was taught all by herself in the School of Nature. The weird and wonderful life is possibly the souse of her vast experience and profound realization. She was born on 17 July, 1928 and passed away on 22 January, 2011. The weird and wonderful life of Great Ma-Mahajnan is the source of our inspiration. Her profound realization compiled in more than one hundred of authentic books is far beyond imagination.

Asokananda Prosad, Ma-Mahajnan's first disciple, is an engineer, a philosopher and a philanthropist. Being the missing son—the eldest and the first disciple of Great Ma-Mahajnan, he has had to shoulder so many burdens of Ashram and Temple. He has long been translating Works of Ma-Mahajnan, written in Bengali, into English. The Mother didn’t just put those in black and white, but simply expressed, extempore and spontaneous, in a state of “Conscious Trance” and Asokananda along with his brothers and sisters got those tape-recorded. He now shoulders as: Director of Pub. Div. : Adarsha Prokashani; Editor of Journals : Nandan Kanan & Sudhi Sahitya; General Secretary : Ma-Mahajnan Vishwa Kalyan Trust; Secretary : Society for the Formation of Character and Sequence; Independent Scholar : Philosophy Documentation Center, Ohio, USA; A Leading Philosopher of the World.
