Advice given by H.H.Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi:
There’s a mantra for the Goddess. Yah Devi sarva bhuteshu, shanti rupena samstitah. Oh Goddess who resides, who (is) all this creation, created, all that is created as peace. So you have to seek peace that is your Mother.
(Christmas Puja 1981)
If you have an anger, say for example which makes you uncontrollable, then there is a mantra for that: Shanti. Ya Devi sarva bhuteshu, Shanti rupena samsthita. You must ask for that bliss, for that peace. This is a mantra for you. For controlling your temper, you have to tell yourself, Ya Devi sarva bhuteshu, Shanti rupena samsthita. So Shanti is the point, the axis point is that from where you witness everything. You are in Shanti, you are in complete peace. You are not in a turmoil, even if you are angry. You are not in a turmoil. Whatever is angry is the power, and the power is taking charge. But unless and until that is achieved, what you have to do is to put yourself in a position that you are peaceful. So I think that's a very good mantra is to say, Ya Devi sarva bhuteshu, Shanti rupena samsthita.

Still your mind! Whatever mantra we say, if it is mechanical it will have no effect. We say: Ya Devi sarva bhuteshu shanti rupena samsthita. Still it. But you must do it with complete understanding, full deliberation.

Today is the sixth day of Navaratri. There have been many incarnations of the Goddess for different, different purposes. But when the great saints introspect themselves, who were worshipping the Mother, they found out that what She has done for us. The other day I told you the dharma is the innate valency of human beings. And they are ten. This is already established within us, but we deviate, deviate from dharma and all the problems come in, because to leave the dharma is not a human quality. But Goddess Herself has done so many things for us already, within us, though we are not aware of it. Said that ya Devi sarva bhuteshu – all those whom You have created, means mostly the human beings. What do You do? As what do You exist inside the human beings?
Now, just introspect if you have these qualities within you or not, because they are given to you by the Goddess, by the Shakti within you. Like ya Devi sarva bhuteshu shanti rupena samstithan – is very important, that You exist within the human beings as peace. Do you find thus human beings who are peaceful within and without? Very difficult. But She has given you that, She has given you that peace which you have to achieve. Now it comes, because you have fallen off your human dharmas. So this peace that She has given you, you have to achieve through your ascent, through the Kundalini awakening. You are excited, all right. Or, you want to take revenge, you want to hurt others, you want to trouble others, you enjoy sometimes, even as Sahaja Yogis people enjoy hurting others, troubling others.
