Isvarakotis can come Backfrom Nirvana
Disciple: Well,Mother, the Master used to say that the Isvarakotis can come Backto the Isvarakotis can come Backto the relative plane of consciousness even after the attainment of Nirvana; others cannot do so. What does that mean?
Mother: The Isvarakoti, even after the attainment of Nirvana, can gather Backhis mind from it and direct it to the ordinary plane of consciousness.
Disciple : How can the mind that has merged itself in God be brought Backagain to the world ? How can one ever separate a jar of water from the water of the lake, if it has been poured into it ?
Mother: Not all can do so. Only the Parama-hamsas can. A Hamsa can separate the milk from a mixture of water and milk, and drink only the milk.
Disciple : Can all get rid of desires ? Well, Mother, the Master used to say that the Isvarakotis can comeback to the relative plane of consciousness even after the attainment of others cannot do so. What does that
Mother: If they could, then this creation would have come to an end. The creation is going on because all cannot be free of desires. People with desires take their births again and again.
Disciple : Suppose a man gives up his body standing in the waters of the Ganges.
Mother : Freedom from birth is possible only when there is no trace of desire. Otherwise, nothing else is of any avail. If one does not get rid of desires, what will one gain, even if this be one’s last birth in this world ?
Disciple : Mother, infinite is this creation ; who can tell what is happening in a remote plane ? Who can say if any living beings inhabit any of those innumerable stars and planets ?
Mother: It is possible only for God to be omniscient in this realm of Maya. Perhaps there is no living being in those planets and stars.
