(Regarding Satprem's Tantric yantram)
I made an experiment: writing the letter OM. When you have written it four, five, six times, it becomes excellent!
I wanted to know why you were asked to do that work and what you could draw from it. So I sat down to write your yantram, and it became very living, I could see it in front of me – I kept seeing it all the while. “But then,” I thought, “the VERY FACT of writing must have an effect.” Then I started writing the letter OM carefully.... Well, when I came to the fourth, the fifth, it became excellent – excellent, as though it were creating a vibration. That's the power it has, an external power. But then it was very amusing (the body is like a child – really a child), suddenly it said, “Oh, what a lovely game! To be sitting like this and writing, oh, how amusing! If I had the time, it would be great fun to write and write, lots and lots and lots of times.” I saw that in the body – in the body's cells. Then I understood.
Basically, these are almost methods for children (children from the spiritual viewpoint), young souls – child-souls. They are methods for child-souls.
I used to write my whole japa fluently like that, in Sanskrit,1 now I have forgotten everything again.
(Then Mother starts writing from memory Satprem's yantram with its nine figures, in the prescribed order. A few days earlier, Mother had done it without a single mistake; today she stops in the middle:)
Impossible to remember anything in the ordinary way (not that I try, either). The things I have to remember come spontaneously: they become living and present, they have a reality.
Just now, as I tried to remember, suddenly I started “thinking” – thought that you were here and that... All gone, I forgot everything!
1 Satprem has entire pages written and rewritten in Sanskrit by Mother.
