"She is a guru for some, a mother and teacher for many."

"The beauty of woman is not in her makeup, her fashion, her
sensuality, her sexuality, her manipulation, and
that kind of ugly, low-
class, low-breed projection. The beauty of woman
is in her majesty, her
oneness as a woman, in her living, feeling and standardization
of herself as
a woman. All a woman has to know in her own life is
that she's a woman to
begin with, and she's a woman in the end. She's born
as a woman, therefore,
it is a law of nature that she should die as a woman.

her own heavens, leaving behind a legend because she was
It's a legend who can leave a legend, and I think this is
of each one whom God has blessed to be a woman." -- Yogi

diapers, who cleans the baby and gives the bath, and this and that. Actually, the
mother is the one who's in command of the space. That's what mother means.
The word is, "maa-dar." Mama, mata and all that are just expressions. The basic

gate means here? The flow of the moon, that gate. The naad of it is, "Maadare."
The initial sound is "Maa." Maa means, "Come, Infinite." Maa is the creative
sound of resurrection. "Aa" is "Come." Come the Infinite. In other words, mother
means an instrument of the human body which can attract the soul and bring the
moving soul to a creative merger into God. That is your reality. -- Yogi
