Ma Anandamayi……

Standard

In the course of Mataji’s stay at Vrindaban two Dutch ladies, both Jungian psychologists, came to see Mataji. The following conversation ensued:Question: Psychologists cure patients by talking to them. With you it seems that your emanation cures people even without words. It is our endeavour to help people. What is the most essential thing we should do for them?

Mataji: Who can be said to be normal in this world? Everyone appears to be mad after one thing or another; some after money, some after beauty, some after music, others after their children and so forth — nobody is really quite balanced.

Question: What then is the remedy?

Mataji: Just as one does not water the leaves of a tree but its roots, so also one has to grapple with man’s disease as its root. Man’s root lies in the brain, Therefore the remedy for all ills is to still the mind. When man’s mind has been stilled, all will be well with him, both physically and psychologically.

Question: How does the mind become still?

Mataji: By treading the path that leads to the realisation of “Who am I?” Your body that was young and is now old with its graying hair and its teeth falling out, does not last for ever. It is not the real “I.” Therefore man has to find out who he really is. When he tries to do this, his mind will be supplied with the right nourishment that will calm it. The right sustenance for the mind cannot be had from anything that is of this world and hence perishable, but solely from that which is Eternal. The taste (rasa) of the Eternal will still the mind.
The Universe was created out of joy and this is why you find joy in the fleeting things of the world. Without joy life is an ordeal. You must try to attain to that great Joy which has brought forth the world.
