Every woman, as the embo-diment of Shakti, has three aspects to her – Creation (janani), Preservation and Destruction. Suppression of any of the three aspects results in imbalance, causing the woman to fall ill. It’s not without reason that the incidents of cancer are so high in women. A man, if he understands all these three aspects of a woman and nurtures them; he can never go wrong, he will always be successful. A home where all the three aspects of a woman are nurtured, such a home prospers, nothing can touch it.
Every day, too, can be divided into three parts – each corresponding to a specific aspect of Shakti. In fact, the vedic science of havan also talks about performing havan three times in a day, corresponding to the three aspects of Shakti, before the sun sets. However, at Dhyan Ashram we perform a havan long after the sun sets, because there is a fourth aspect, which has in it the essence (samavesh) of all the three aspects of Shakti. One must not forget, that Shakti runs the Creation. A man cannot do anything without Shakti. Therefore, when a man performs a havan, he needs to have the Shakti (whether his mother, daughter, sister or wife) to be seated on his left. A havan is incomplete if there is no presence of a woman.
While a woman is Shakti, but the nature of Shakti is chanchal. An imbalanced woman is like a bomb, a bomb which when explodes, first destroys itself and then everyone and everything around it. In fact, when women get emotionally volatile, the first thought that comes to them is, ‘let me kill myself’. Ask any woman and she will confirm that her first thought in such a state is that of committing suicide.
A Guru is like a bomb diffuser, the difference being that while the bomb diffusing squad wear suits to protect them, the Guru has to diffuse the bomb without the protective suit. A Guru’s job is not an easy one. First, the Guru has to save the bomb from destructing herself and then the people and environment around. A few times it has happened with me that when I tried to diffuse the bomb, it burst on my face. I had to bear the consequences. Ofcourse, the bomb destroyed itself first. Once my blood pressure shot up to 190/110 with the heat of one of the explosions.
However, when a woman comes into a state of balance, nothing is impossible for her. Even in Guru Tantra it is mentioned, that a woman as a Guru is pure Shakti, which leads to phenomenal experiences. A Shakti can go towards destruction or towards positivity, and therefore the role of the Guru is very important. At Dhyan Foundation, behind every cause, there is a Shakti (woman). Alternatively, a woman used as an embodiment of negativity/ asuric vritti (forces) seeks only destruction and the Guru cannot prevent it.
A woman’s life is a karmic one, she experiences pain in three aspects of her being (whether it is creation – child birth, preservation – being in the kitchen, running the house, or destruction – blowing up herself and those around her). It is a payback, examples such as Ganga and Mother Earth are ample proof of the same. Ganga washes away the sins and takes the pain of all people, Mother Earth holds Ganga and bears the same atrocities committed on her. That is why the water of Ganga is non-potable and the soil of Mother Earth has turned dirty brown from golden. There are two aspects to creation and all its manifestations. The ‘force’ inside a woman has the ability to self-destruct or be channelised towards positivity. The latter assures entitlement to acquire plenty of good karma that she can direct towards higher plane, like evolution. But the former or reverse is also a strong possibility in the absence of the Guru…
