"Did you see the sun, a light?"
A few years later on April 7, 1996 Kash's younger brother Arwinder was asked if he had seen any sun or light when meditating with the Great Primordial Mother.
He immediately replied that there was always a Light at Her place, but was not the sun. He was sure of the difference as this Light, though extremely bright, did not hurt the eyes. He added that unlike the Earth sun that blinds his eyes easily, one can look at this Light for as long as possible. However, he could not recall if there were shadows or not.
On February 23, 1998, at 11.40 a.m. he was again asked about this Light above Shri Mataji. He reconfirmed that it was always above Her. He was then asked if there were shadows or not. This time he immediately replied that there were none. He was asked if he was very sure. His reply was that he was definitely sure.
On July 10 1998, at 10.35 a.m. Arwinder was posed the same question as to whether this Light caused any shadows. Again he replied there were none.
We must understand that for a child to say that light cause no shadows in the Spiritual World, unlike the common daily experience on Earth, requires the overwhelming confidence of an authentic spiritual experience.
On May 4, 2004 at 7.30 am 10-year-old Lalita was asked about this Light:
Father: What is above Shri Mataji's head?
Lalita: The Light.
Father: Can you look at it for a long time?
Lalita: Yes, you can look at it.
Father: Does it not blind you?
Lalita: It doesn't blind me.
Father: Is it different from the sun you see on Earth?
Lalita: It's smaller.
Father: Anything else?
Lalita: It doesn't blind you. What else? ...... It's brighter. OK?
Father: Thank you Lalita.
This Light is always above the Great Divine Mother, and this Spirit of God Almighty resides within the Sahasraras of all humans. Unlike Her incarnation on Earth as Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi who is now an aging octogenarian, She is eternally youthful and of unsurpassable beauty. Kash, Arwinder and Lalita have always maintained that they have never seen any woman as beautiful as Shri Maha-Devi who is truly the Great Primordial Goddess. (Shri Saraswati, Laxshmi and Kali are also extremely beautiful but none are comparable with the Maha-Devi.)
