Shri Datta Swami

Are the female forms like Goddess Anagha, Goddess Sarasvati, Goddess Lakshmi, Goddess Parvati etc., not ordinary souls?

Dr. Nikhil asked:- Swami, You told that Goddess Anaghā, Goddess Sarasvatī, Goddess Lakṣmī, Goddess Pārvatī etc., are also incarnations of the unimaginable God or God Datta, which are finite forms of Parāśakti or Jagat like God Datta. Are these female forms not ordinary souls? Did You say like this to pacify the ego based jealousy of female devotees just like Śaṇkara told that every soul is God to pacify the jealousy of atheists?]

Swami Replied:- You think that the female divine forms are actually lower ordinary souls elevated by Me as incarnations to pacify the jealousy of female devotees against the male incarnations. I said that the female divine forms are also the incarnations of unimaginable God. The reason for such formation of female incarnations of God is that God also was fascinated to play roles of female forms. By this, the female divine form can be at the maximum become the unimaginable God Himself because none can surpass Himself! But, if you say that the female divine forms are ordinary souls, you have opened a special channel of dualistic devotion of ordinary souls in which an ordinary soul can become the master of God. My proposal made female forms to become God, but, your proposal opens such a channel by which this female form becomes the master of God because through dualistic devotion an ordinary soul becomes master of God! The divine female form itself becomes jealous on seeing the ordinary soul having the possibility to become master of God, which doesn’t exist with itself! I have cut the branches of the tree and scolding Me, you have cut the roots of tree. I have made the form to become God, but, you have made the same form as ordinary soul, which has every possibility of becoming the master of God!
