“Now the Ocean is the Father, and the Mother Earth is your Mother. But when the Mother Earth becomes a Mountain, She is called as the Father. The reason is : She, at that height, can catch the Father on top of Her head, as snow or as rain. That is how a Mother becomes the Father, and so She can perform the complete function of a father and a mother.
In that state only, Gauri the Daughter of the Mountains, conceived Shri Ganesha without the help of the Father, immaculate.
The purity of the snow is hundred percent, and that covers the Mother Earth, gives the formation of Innocence. All the filth and dirt that goes into the ocean is clarified by the Sun, which is also Shri Ganesha, and is brought on top of the hills and mountains to cover it.
When you see the mountains like this, the idea that should come into a good human being would be:
“0 God, I can see You in this sublime form, and how will I conquer my ignorance? How will I climb over my mountain of arrogance to look at You?”
On a personal note: many of us will take vacation near the ocean or the sea, or will be in the proximity of mountains, or simply will go on trails. Such words of wisdom may help us appreciate more the subtlety of Nature around us, that is of same substance of our being, in and out. Enjoy the breathtaking song Ocean by Nicki Wells.
