His (Christ) greatness cannot be described in words. As a child, as a son He’s the giver of joy. One cannot describe how He looked after His mother – it’s impossible. No words can describe the understanding of Christ for His Mother: His love, His gentleness, His care, His devotion, dedication, His Shraddha. It cannot be described.
And you know that He came as an evolved Shri Ganesh. And at the back He is Shri Ganesh; in front He’s Kartikeya: very powerful, eleven Rudras. And this has given Him the highest position. So, on this Easter day, we have to think how He was resurrected for us. More than Him, His mother had to suffer His crucifixion. It was too much. Because She knew all about Him, She knew all this was going to happen and She was in a human form as a mother and Her only loving son being crucified in Her presence.
We should not glorify the cross for one reason: because Christ was crucified on that. But cross is the sign of the Agnya Chakra also. Because the same Swastika, which was tetravalent, equally distributed, is expressed as an evolved symbol that is a cross.So when we glorify the cross, we are glorifying our Agnya, by which we accept the life of dedication and of sacrifice. And if we look forward after the cross we know that it is resurrection. And the resurrection that you are going to actualise in this lifetime….
