THE SHAWL – Mothers protection

The shawl is one of the items, which are always accompanying Shri Mataji. Mostly red, with delicate embroidery, it covers Mother always in a particular manner. Sometimes loose, sometimes tight, sometimes covering the left arm, sometimes the right, or even both, it  shows the momentary mood, the divine aspect, or the powers at work. It belongs to Shri Mataji, like a part of Her image, and represents to Her children  -

Mothers Protection

The shawl of Mother covers the entire creation.

It  is spread to protect evolution of life.

It is woven of love and firm dedication,

To make sure that the image of God will survive.

As the shell is protecting the shining pearl,

And the nut  gives shelter to the delicate seed.

Mothers robe of Grace embraces the world

To preserve the precious and defend the weak.

As the Mother protects her household,

And the King feels obliged for His state,

The Goddess’ shawl will open and unfold

Over those who’re in need of protection and aid.

 But for those who love Her, She especially cares,

Those who seek refuge at Her Lotus feet.

For the ones, who will utter Her name in despair

She will always fight evil, and will never retreat.

Mothers protection is a commitment of love

It’s a pledge She takes for the born again soul.

As long as you dwell in the kingdom above

Her caring attention will guard and console.

To those, who surrender, Mothers love is protection

Loyal, unfailing, for the benefit of all.

This is the promise of Her caring affection

To be saved and  kept warm under Her Motherly shawl.

-----

Shri Mataji, please let me carry Your shawl

Let me bring it wherever You go

For I know-

Faith and surrender in my heart to install

That is the blessing the shawl will bestow.
