……So, the left side is called as Tamo guna, the right side is Rajo guna and the centre as Satwo guna. Now, Tamo guna means a left-sided personality. …… Mahakali is the left side power in us. So, actually she is Adi Shakti. Only when she enters into the left side of the Virata we call her Mahakali, but she is the power of pure desire of God. Then she establishes Shri Ganesha herself. Then she goes to the right side as Mahasaraswati, and then she enters into the centre [navel] where she is Mahalakshmi. That is how Adi Shakti takes three forms. But Mahakali is the pure form, because she’s not yet deep in [?] I mean from Adi Shakti, she’s Mahakali. So, first thing she, before creating this universe or anything, she created Shri Ganesha. And first to spread, manifest not only holiness but also auspiciousness, and purity. So, before anything was created, these spiritual forces were created, to protect the creation that was to follow. So, this Mahakali force was specially in the purest form to protect people from the negative side….
Now, we have to now understand Mahakali’s powers. Now Mahakali’s powers are such that she is the Holy Ghost. So, firstly she can cure any diseases that come from viruses, like say from AIDS. You can start from Mooladhara, all Mooladhara diseases, then all Swadisthana diseases, all these diseases. Left Vishuddhi of course, is a combination, because when a man is too right-sided to balance his ego he puts it here in the guilt. So, it could be a combination of both right and left. But all other incurable diseases are left-sided.
.....Now supposing even if you are working in the right side too much, the energy is driven to the right side. But suddenly something may happen, you see, some accident, some sort of unhappiness, anything, and this little bit can break like that, from the left side. So, the virus can start flowing into the right side also. Now, when this virus enters into the right side you have no connection with the whole, because it’s broken now. ..So, this right side starts working on its own and that’s how you develop this cancer where the cell itself becomes the ego, it gets the ego and it starts multiplying, multiplying. So, this virus can give you any kind of disease which cannot be cured by medical science because medical science deals with the right side of the physical side. But the mental side is dealt with by Mahakali power, mental side. That is how in Sahaja Yoga we have been able to cure many incurable diseases by using candles. Because the light when it is shown to these viruses, or to the bhoots, they go away. So, by three-candle treatment you can cure any one of these incurable diseases, even AIDS....So, the hundred and eight names of the Goddess or the one thousand names of the Goddess are mostly for Mahakali, on the left-hand side, because she killed so many rakshasas. She destroys also viruses and all kinds of things which are inflicted on human beings. ...
