Shakti, The Transcendent Mother.

Standard
Devi Aditi is Parashakti or Shakti, the transcendent mother; She had three forms the Trishakti or Tridevi, Maa Mahasaraswati, Maa Mahalakshmi and Maa Mahakali, she’s the three gods Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Maa Saraswati is Brahmani. She’s her power of balance (Sattviki Shakti). Maa Lakshmi is Vaishnavi. She’s her power of activity (Rajasik Shakti). Maa Kali is Maheshwari. She’s her power of destruction (Tamsik Shakti)

I have here another deep dive (but short!) into the fascinating magic power of the symbols, especially Eastern ones for you! My mind is going to explode, though, but as we might “must” know, the wisdom came from the orient towards the west to teach the barbarians and the Huns! Here we can read what Dr Jung explained so precisely:

Westerners cannot slap Eastern spirituality on top of a western ego and expect enlightenment. ~Carl Jung. By Mr Purrington 🙏

Here is an analysis of a dream, along with the Mandala Symbols. In his book: Dream and Dream Interpretation.

Dream 21; (Mandalasymbolic)
The large, transparent sphere contains many small spheres. A green plant grows out at the top.
The sphere is a whole that encompasses all content; the life that the useless struggle has stopped becomes possible again. In Kundalini Yoga, the “green womb” is a designation for Ishvara (Shiva) emerging from his latent state.

Trimuti- “three forms” or “trinity” are the trinity of supreme divinity in Hinduism, in which the cosmic functions of creation, preservation, and destruction are personified as a triad of deities. Typically, the designations are that of Brahma; the creator (A), Vishnu; the preserver (U), and Shiva; the destroyer (M). (OM)

Trimurti-image. The triangle symbolizes the coherence of the universe according to the peak of unity, the tortoise: Vishnu and the lotus, which grows up from the skull with the two flames: Shiva.

In the background: the radiant Brahma sun – the whole thing corresponds to the alchemical >opus<, where the tortoise symbolizes the >Massa Confusa<, the skull the >vas< of transformation, the flower the >self< or wholeness. (After an Indian depiction.)

C.G. Jung, Psychology of Alchemy. Do well everyone

  1. Thank you for this, Aladin. I love to learn more about the Hindu gods and goddesses. Shakti is a favorite of mine, but I never knew she had three forms.

    Synchronistically, when my first granddaughter was about a year old she was staying with me and when she woke up she cried out, “Maa!” I’ve been known as Maa to my granddaughters ever since and wear the name proudly! Blessings, Jeanie

    • Wow, what an amazing call! And you are right; the mystical of the eastern Goddesses are fascinating. Thank you, dear Jeane, for this honourable synchronisation. Love to you.💖🙏

    It always amazed me that Jung decided not to visit Ramana Maharshi (one of the great Hindu sages of the last century) when he was in India. I know Jung followed his intuition.

    South India was full of Divine Feminine energy on the temple walls, on street corner shrines, and in the most surprising places. I found the goddess most strongly in the temple elephants and in the sage Sri Sankaracharya and the many images and temples devoted to the goddess Kamakshi or Parvati. I didn’t understood much, but my mind exploded. Thanks for today’s explosion.
