It is he who moulds all the elements of the nature and move them to create life. As you call them, these are all carbohydrates. Now the carbohydrates have got carbon and hydrogen. Carbon is coming from Shri Ganesh and hydrogen is coming from Mahakali. And that is how this universe is created in this beautiful way all around us.
Now, these carbohydrates need oxygen which is given to us by the Sun, by the right side. Thus, you know that in the night, these trees emit hydrogen and, in the ,daytime they generate oxygen. This is all the trick of Shri Ganesha who is sitting in between. Now, it is he who becomes the Sun. He ascends from the deep-down seat below the Kundalini. He rises on the left-hand side of Mahakali, goes up and settles in the Surya, that is the Agnya. So Mahakali, which is the Primordial Energy is absolutely transcended by him. As the child of Mahakali, he’s absolutely dedicated and devoted to her. And that is how he is the master of Mahakali power, Lord of. That means he is the Lord of the subconscious mind. He is the Lord of all the “jadas”.
It’s very important, “jadas” means all that is the matter which is not moving, without life.
So, he can transcend this great power and become the lord of that power by one very small little wisdom he has. Now, that small little wisdom is surrender. And the surrender is to be understood in its proper sense. Surrender is, signifying, “no giving up anything” because whenever you try to give up or take up, you are using your ego. But surrendering means giving up the ego itself. So, all the ideas of giving up something or taking in something disappear….
Now, you should be able to read through the beautiful working of Ritambhara Pragnya which is very subtle. And then you’ll start enjoying the little, little things it plays to make you very happy and to give you what some artist must have done it long time back, which his desire was to fulfil. Now, this is also we should say, is the work of Shri Ganesha. He resides as Omkara in the Ritambhara Pragnya. He resides on the electromagnetic forces as the vibrations in the matter, in every atom. He resides in every ripple of our emotions which gives us joy. And He resides as a beautiful decoration of the Kundalini because she has the red and the gold colour just like my sari. So as the colour of the Kundalini He resides. But at Sahasrara, He becomes the joy. At Mooladhara as the fragrance, and every memory of mind should give you fragrance because He is the Lord of memory.
So, this is how He manages everything so beautifully. He’s such an innocent person who plays around his beauty to make us happy. Our children should also make us very happy if we have brought them up properly. But if we have been all the time busy with lust and greed the children cannot be good children. They cannot represent Ganesh tattva as it should be…..
This should give you the power of innocence, the power of purity, the power of wisdom. It should give you the art of playfulness of joy and that special quality of turning everything into something fragrant.
May God bless you all.
