The aspirant has the protection of the Divine
Mother: So long as the ego exists, desires also undoubtedly remain. But those desires will not injure you. The Master will be your protector. It will be a heinous sin on the part of the Master if he does not protect those who have taken shelter at his feet, who have taken refuge in him renouncing all, and who want to lead a good life. You must live in a spirit of self-surrender to him. Let him do good
to you if he so desires, or let him drown you if that be his will. But you are to do only what is righteous,and that also according to the power he has given you.
Disciple : Have I, O Mother, surrendered to him to that extent? Sometimes I feel that I can depend upon him to a small extent, and the next moment it disappears. What will be the way for us if he does not protect us ? Sometimes I think that because you, O Mother, are alive, we can report our dangers and difficulties to you and gain peace by a look at your face. Who will protect us after your leaving us ? We shall feel safe if you give us assurance.
Mother: Don’t be afraid, my child. You have nothing to fear. You will not lead a worldly life with wife and children. You will have none of these. Why should you fear ? And in the meantime, before my death, you will be able to build up a secure foundation for your spiritual life.
Disciple : What will Japa and austerities avail us if God does not cast His benign look upon us ? We shall be protected only if He protects us.
Mother: You have nothing to fear. The Master will certainly protect you. Don’t worry.
