Guiding Light of The Month

OH, let Light be poured on all the earth and Peace inhabit every heart. . . Almost all know only the material life heavy, inert, conservative, obscure; their vital forces are so tied to this physical form of existence that, even when left to themselves and outside the body, they are still solely occupied with these material contingencies that are yet so harassing and painful. . . - The Mother

The Mahakali aspect of The Mother

The Mahakali aspect, she records, first came to the front when she was a child of about 8 years old. At that time in the school there was a big bully many years older who was teasing girls. One day Mother told him to stop and when he refused the power surged in her: she picked him up and threw him aside. Everyone marvelled that this little girl could pick up such a hefty fellow and throw him. That was the first time the Mahakali force acted in her.

Much later, of course, there were many incidents, one of which is specially interesting because of the distinction that it gives us between Kali and Mahakali. It was during the First World War, when during meditation she saw Kali dancing in a frenzy. And Kali said “Paris is falling”. But Mother said “No “with a power and will. Kali, being a subsidiary power, is not the same as Mahakali, thus with the will that the Mother put forth the circumstances changed. The next day there was a news despatch which recorded that the invading armies had come up to the gates of Paris. The citizens had decided not to defend the city and had withdrawn. When the invading army saw the gates open they suspected a trap and retreated. The French Army then fell upon them and Paris was saved. So, this was a case of the Mahakali aspect presiding and overriding the Kali force.
