Accordingto his own words & Beliefs: “ We pray the paradevata shakti united withshiva in the sahasrara charka i.e thousand petal lotus, whose matter is purenectar of bliss (amrita) red like vermillion (1000 rising suns) , The youngflower of Hibiscus, the sunset sky at Godhuli, time, whohas folded her way through the mass ofsound issuing from the clashing and dashing of the two winds, the talk going onbetween the birds in the middy sushumna nadi, rises to that brilliant energy which glitters with the luster of 10 million lightiningswhose visible form is like a Gar-land of Letters. ThisMaya Kundalini- Kriya Madhumati who quickly goes to and returns from shivagrant us the fruit of Yoga which was nicely described in the Synthesis of Yogaby Yogi Raj Sir Aurobindo Gosh. Sir says that the mother awakened in the cow ofPlenty to Kaulas and the Naga valli dala (Creeper) of all things desired forthose who worship her, the great mother godess.
As Saptasati says that " Kuputro Jayate Mata Kumata Na Bhavati." It means there can be a crooked son who goes in between the Father & Mother , but there will not be a bad mother. Mother is Mother only, i.e the godess who has given this physical body to walk on the path of Dharma, Ardha, Kama, Moksha. She can only make any sadhaga to reach his Sri guru's feet & unite with his Atma. Finally She Grants the Liberation (MOKSHAM).
