Continuing in the gyaan from “Mookajji’s Visions”… here is what Mookajji said when Subbaraya commented on samsara, illusion and deliverance.
“.. What do they mean by illusion? It means that we are not aware of God’s purpose. Doesn’t it? Can we ever know why he created this illusion at all?”
“Impossible – we have entangled even gods like Rama, Krishna, Shiva and Brahma in such an illusion or mystery. At the same time, we say, ‘It is illusion, we have to break it and without breaking it deliverance is impossible”. I cannot but laugh at such stupidity. What deliverance? Where is deliverance? The so-called saints forsook their wives and children and went in blind faith in search of Narayana and Vitthala. They sang about them endlessly and their devotion to the gods was great. But the fact remains that they abandoned their wives and children. For whose sake did they do all that? They did all that with a desire to meet a Shiva or a Narayana who was no doubt rejoicing with his own wife in Kailasa or Vaikunta. What can those gods, who have yet to obtain deliverance from their own spouses bestow on these seekers?
It is an illusion to think that a god who himself is deeply attached to his wife is going to bestow deliverance on you. Why do these gods need wives, if not for love? Without themselves getting married, they could go on creating, preserving and destroying the world.
But to create, to preserve or to destroy, you need the male and the female. Without bringing them together, there is no creation at all. Even people who shout about God won’t exist.”
The strange sequence of granny’s reasoning flabbergasted me and made me realise that when people said she is mentally deranged, they betrayed a narrow way of thinking.
Mookajji is so ahead of her times I say! 😉
