The Parliament of Religions in 1893 and Swami Vivekananda being then the Hindoo Monk representing India, showed us how to unite in responsible cooperative action to bring the wisdom and values of our religions, spiritual expressions, and indigenous traditions to bear on the economic, environmental, and social challenges facing our earth community today. We today respect the uniqueness of each culture and tradition, and differences of practice and belief. We value voices that respect others, and believe that sharing values and wisdom, can lead to act for the good of all. We are dedicated to a higher education of spirituality and religious pluralism, using interfaith education and dialogue, as an expression of spiritual concern and love, to serve as a bridge for peoples of all religions and spiritual teachings, to reach out in understanding and communion. We practice equitable participation of women and men, and listen and speak with respect to deepen mutual understanding and trust. Interfaith affirms and supports the underlying goodness of each person and supports freedom of religion and spiritual expression, as the right of all individuals and people, as set forth in international law. Interfaith does not seek to blend or homogenize religions. Rather Interfaith honors the sacredness and uniqueness of each faith and then creates ways by which the many paths can meet on common ground. Differences between various religions, cultures and spiritual traditions need not divide and separate, but can instead enrich our lives and deepen our capacity to love. Interfaith honors the spirit and the human dignity of all. Education Exploring the Sacred Ways of the World's Great Wisdom Traditions, helps one to replace fear with an understanding of diversity which allows one to take responsibility to help and not fight, listen and find peace.
Interfaith and sacred ways also reminds us of the worship of shiva and shakti within us all, reminding us to practice equality of gender in the world, compassion and justice in our minds, unconditional love and divine union in our hearts and be a one world citizen with responsibility to care for all life and our mother earth.
Namaste, in much gratitude in finding you and the passionate work of saving divine life. Girls are the daughters of the Divine and the balance to the whole of humanity. If the world was illumined in consciousness for all mankind to see, they would be worshipping the divine feminine in the purest form of the spirit's chosen birth as a girl, a daughter and mother of divinity and unconditional love and compassion. We will continue to serve as we are called and never cease until the solution is a reality bringing spirit into the world is not for man to decide who is to live or die; be nurtured or abused. It is the partnership that we are in with the divine, to cherish each daughter as if god was present. It is man's duty and dharma to evolve to his fullest potential and worship knowing shiva shakti is in all. We are to worship the holy twins of divinity and serve as we would have Gd be served within an altar. In pujas we say ihagatcha, ihagathca, welcome welcome divine soul. Please come and allow us to worship and serve you as Shiva Shakti within Jivas. First we must protect the divine feminine in girls and pray for the upliftment in society to evolve from animality to humanity. So is shall be the balance within and the balance without that brings us to peace and love, compassion. Thank you for all you are contributing in your life's and now in mine. Mataji
Your words resonate truth. Namaskar is not through meditation but a cultural practice of folding your hands together and saluting intentionally and awake and consciously each individual one may meet and then consciously and awake remain focusing your eyes into the individual before you and sincerely allowing them to practice seeing the divinity in you. Whether you are meditating in the shrine or the caves, whether you do japa 108 times or 10,000 times, a continued practice is also practiced by the masses through service of and worship of the divinity of all humankind and the sustainability of mother earth. No matter what one does if done remembering divinity and the upliftment of all humankind, worshipping the spirit in action with the goal of inaction in action; All paths lead to Brahman. Each individual is potentially divine as a jnana, bhakti, raja, karma practioner.leading one to the source of unconditonal love, compassion ate service and the evolution and involution of all. Serve in the world but be not of it. Give until the giving merges you into wholeness.
Sri Ramakrishna, Sri Sarada Devi, Sannyasinni Gauri Mata and Swami Vivekanananda all modeled the balanced worship of the Holy Twins, Shiva and Shakti as the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine within us all. Swami Vivekananda wrote, from England in 1896, "There is no chance for the welfare of the world unless the condition of women is improved. It is not possible for a bird to fly on only one wing. Hence in the Ramakrishna incarnation the acceptance of woman as the Guru, and preaching the Motherhood of women as representations of the Divine Mother. After his visit of the Parliament in 1893, Swamiji wrote to his brother monks, Hence it is my first endeavor to start a math (convent) for women. This math shall be the origin of Gargis and Maitreyis and women of even higher attainments than these...Please show this letter to Gauri Ma, Jogin Ma and through them establish a women's math. Let Gauri Ma be the president there..I shall supply all necessary expenses for that work. Sannyasini Gauri Mata Puri Devi was the only woman monastic disciple of Sri Ramakrishna and commissioned by him founded the Sri Saradeshwari Ashram in Kolkatta in 1895, making it the oldest women's convent in the direct lineage of Sri Ramakrishna and Sri Sarada Devi. Gauri Ma's first instructions were to find all the girl widows and raise them with education and spirituality so that they could be the balance of what was dominated by old culture and despair. Sannyasini Gauri Mata Puri Devi guided by Sri Sarada Devi and Sri Ramakrishna is not only a model of her times but today a model for modern India.
If divinity is in all at all times, can you walk by one who is being beaten and see divinity in all actions;or do you exit from your form as an unripe ego to allow dvinity to enter and fill your form to be used by divinity raising the unripe ego to a ripened ego doing and serving all with love, compassion, advocacy and justice. Is one then not a practitioner of all, doing and serving so that all beings may evolve through involution and evolution with the support of society and be uplifted from animality to humanity; humanity to divinity. Does not this infinite consciousness once realized; not expect us to be used in the works of the world worshipping shiva in jivas, better yet worshipping Shiva/Shakti the Holy Twins within all for the betterment of all humanity and the world.
