God as Divine Mother
However we perceive God to be, that is how we will experience the presence of the Infinite. There are many paths to God and ways of relating to God. The Gayathri Peedam* teaches that, of all the relationships in the world, that of mother and child is the purest. We can picture God as an old man with a long white beard sitting on a throne in the skies above, or, we can see God as a mother and yourself as a her child, sitting on her Infinite lap, playing with her hand and drinking of her spiritual elixir.
* 'Peedam' means 'seat'. The Gayathri Peedam is regarded as the 'seat of the mother'.
