The cardiac center is governed by the Deity Jagadamba, the Mother of the universe. Parvati, wife of Shiva, the power of Shiva, takes Her place here to help these struggling evolutionary human beings who are trying to evolve themselves, to protect them from the satanic, from the demonic forces. She is known as Lalita. She is known by many names. They say She has been incarnated 108 times.... She is the essence of raksha, that is the protection.... And She is the Mother of this world, Jagadamba.... Shiva is the guru. Parvati is the Shakti.... When Parvati made Shri Ganesha, He was the son of Parvati alone. There was no father. Parvati Herself wanted to have a child of Her own. There were angels who were dedicated either to Vishnu or to Shiva, like the ganas who were dedicated to Shiva alone, so She wanted to have Her own son who could permeate Her powers on this Earth. So to begin with, when the Shakti created this universe and Sadashiva was watching Her creation, the first thing She created on this Earth was innocence and the embodiment of that innocence was Shri Ganesha. (22 February 1977 and 4 September 1981 and 7 September 1986)
