File under: The Siddhi of PR
A reader recently turned us on to Mirabai Devi, yet another entry into the increasingly crowded field of devidom. And like all the rest of them, she's got an inflated sense of her own importance as a vehicle for the transmission of something that is supposed to be divine:
When you come up for darshan, it is not Mirabai the personality you are interacting with but rather the Divine Mother which comes through her while in samadhi (a merged state of union with the divine). Please prepare yourself before coming up by sitting in silence. Come to darshan with an attitude of a surrendered mind and ego, and a heart that is devoted to God and the Light. Allow yourself to offer all of your problems, burdens, and questions to Mirabai. Try to make yourself empty and witness everything that arises for you in the darshan. You may also bring a photo, mala (prayer beads), shawl or jewelry (washed in water) to darshan to be blessed by Mirabai.Light, smight. Ask Benny Hinn what's going on. He and his bank account know all too well.
There's another occlusion-spewing nonsense factory up and running. Mirabai's "Light" may as well be carbon monoxide for all the good it does for her devotees' own self-understanding. So step right up and suck in the ignorance.
