Every Day with Shri Mataji


Lakshmi's powers are to give you a great learning, to give you a great understanding, intellectuality and to give you a kind of a personality that outshines others by your brilliance. But it may not give you money, it may not give you lots of possessions, but it gives you possessions which cannot be stolen, which cannot be taken away. And She is a person of humility, so the person who is a learned has to be humble. If he is not humble, then he is not learned according to the principle of Saraswati. The person who is very much learned has to bow down with the fruits of his learnings.... She is the power which gives you humility – not the humility of a businessman, but a genuine humility She gives you. (11 1990)
