MANI DVEEPA DESCENDS TO EARTH
following story is taken from Brahmanda Purana describing the exploits of
Goddess. It was a bird’s eye view of Mani Dveepa meaning an Island of Jewels.
Lustrous Goddesses like Parvati, Lakshmi and Saraswati dance there with 64
Yoginis & Apsaras. All are well versed in the 64 arts of expressing love.
Each one more beautiful than the others, they dance and laugh and play
half-clothed. Heavenly courtesans like Rambha, Urvasi, Menaka and Tilottama go
about unclothed demonstrating the 64 arts of passionate lovemaking as gateways
to liberation. There is neither any sense of shame nor doubt nor any criticism.
Dveepa is the great pleasure resort of Goddesses. Kali’s attendants guard the
entrance so that no male entity could gain entry.
All male Gods were kept out, including Brahma and Vishnu. They approached
Shiva and prayed to him. “O Lord, We are not allowed to see this great
carnival of Goddesses. Terrible Kali Herself is protecting the entry.
Please see with your divine vision what is happening there and at least
describe in words the pleasures and games of Devis. Shiva told them: “This is
Devi’s play, Her Maya. I cannot fathom it. Parvati has prevented my entry
also. I tried seeing with my divine eye. Alas, it does not work.” Then the
Gods told Shiva. “If that be the case, Oh Lord! This will be the first time
the great God Shiva who is a Sarvajna, the knower of all, is prevented from
Shiva understood their concern and took the form of a 2-year-old baby to enter
the Mani Dveepa. The gatekeepers and the dancers saw him and said, Oh! It is
only a 2-year-old baby. He does not know anything about sex. He is liberated,
being shameless himself. Let him come in. Shiva entered and saw the totally open
beauty of the Goddesses. He has seen what no one else has seen about the
playfulness of the divine beauties. He experienced the ultimate in beauty and
pleasure. He saw how the Bhairavis play with each other. He came to know how
Parvati enjoys in Mani Dveepa, which he could never see in Himalayas. Shiva
himself is totally uninhibited. The pleasure he saw got into his head. He
started dancing wildly and started playing inimitably on his drum.
Parvati’s eyes fell on this child prodigy, for how can talent be hidden? The
crescent moon hidden in his locks was seen by Parvati. She understood that Shiva
himself came in disguise. The secret doors to whatever the ladies wanted to hide
have been opened. Every lady opens herself to the linga, and so is nude in front
of Shiva. But for the sake of the world she has to show the sense of shame. So
what to do now? All ladies conferred and quickly decided that somehow what Shiva
had seen must be a closed vision to the rest of the world. So all of them said
in one voice: let us freeze his age at two and make him our son. A son never
reveals the secret of his mother even if she misbehaves. All the Yoginis lifted
their skirts and placed him in their laps. They taught him the ten great vidyas
for liberation. He became the universal son to all the Yoginis, Lakshmi, Parvati,
Saraswati, Apsaras, Courtesans, Devis and their sub-Devis. Like this they bound
Shiva’s expression. Shiva could
not describe what he saw being only two years old. All the Gods were stunned.
What is this? He was a man and now he is a child attached to his mothers. Their
desire to see the pleasures of Goddesses was not satisfied. This is the story
from Purana. The story continues today.
regretted their hasty decision and decided their happiness could not be complete
without male Gods. They felt, now
the time is ripe for revealing the secrets. Why now? People are seeing orgies
secretly. It is better if they accept it publicly to get rid of their neuroses.
Lust is necessary, for it is the spring of life. Given the suicidal technology,
there is great danger in coupling lust to violence. The need of the hour is to
express lust through all fine arts: like song, dance, sculpture, painting and
devotion. Otherwise the earth will be destroyed.
they have let in a present day person to witness and record the erotic plays of
Goddesses in sculptures. The Devis are named in Khadgamala. They attend on Adi
Shakti in Sri Chakra, another name for Mani Dveepa. All Goddesses and Gods
descended there enjoying an unending carnival called Nityotsava in their subtle
forms. People who do sadhana there do experience them in meditations.
Mani Dveepa has descended to Earth at Devipuram to put an end to cruelty and bring creative joys to Earth. Go there to witness, enjoy and be blessed.
