Mataji said, “Kal maine sarson ka saag banana hai, iss liye sab aa jana. Makki ki roti bhi pakaoon gi”.
The Shakti period starts from the morning after Diwali pooja night. Guruji being Shiv himself, opts to be out of physical contact with the Shishyas till Shivratri. In the event of meeting the Shishyas in some special circumstance, Guruji would cover His forehead with handkerchief and the Shishyas also are directed to act the same way while they happen to meet the devotees during this time. This period is designated by Guruji as “The Shakti period” .
Since the Shishyas, are commanded to carry on Seva, they need the spiritual powers and the only source available is “Mataji. They are supposed to use the powers of Ma Shakti only and not of Bhagwan Shiv since the master is in the Samadhi state. Therefore blessings from Mataji are a must as She is in the form of Ma Shakti. Mataji must be pleased and with this reason Guruji instructed Shishyas to visit Sthaan for the sake of taking blessings from Her at least 11 times before “Ganesh Poornima”. This is essential.
Matarani understood it.
Being kind and a caring Ma, She laid a master piece trap so that the Shishyas don’t miss to paying their visits to Her and Her blessings are bestowed on them.
Just assuming a mistake done by us and then to be punished from Guruji, Matarani called all the Shishyas and announced, “Kal maine sarson ka saag banana hai, iss liye sab aa jana. Makki ki roti bhi pakaoon gi”. (I shall cook mustard leaves vegetable and the chapatties of maiz floor, so you all come tomorrow and enjoy the special food). She knew it well that sarson ka saag is a weakness of many of us and that we shall postpone any other programme for the sake of this special feast and that too made by Matarani herself. So when ever She wanted us to visit Gurgaon, She would cook the saag and inform us accordingly and we visited and took aashirwad from the mother divine, “Matarani” and also enjoyed the saag and makki ki roti. What a wonderful way to shower Her blessings on us and what a special mother is Mataji that She took so much care and help us complete our eleven visits to Sthaan during Diwali and Ganesh Poornima. She does this only for our sake, for our spiritual uplifting.
The necessity of the said visits is very important and significant on spiritual ground.
Bhagwan Shiv enters into samadhi and remains in that state till Shivratri. The Lord’s come back in the awakening state is awaited by the whole world and especially by those who love Him and worship Him. They pass this period of a few months, minute by minute in eagerness to witness the night time of 12 pm of this auspicious day of Mahashivratri.
