Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:
How many of you saw that?
It is a stone, and if you ask it a question, such as, ‘Will it snow tomorrow? If it will snow then you become heavy, and if it will not snow, then you become light.’
Then the stone will become very light if it is going to snow. If it is not going to snow the stone will become so heavy that you cannot lift it at all. So the stone has that consciousness, prana in it.
Some 2600 years back, some saint induced prana into the stone. It is called prana pratishta. There is a she energy in it.
This Mother Divine energy (in the stone) came to the ashram, and has been there for the last 4 to 5 months. Any question you ask, it responds. Suppose you ask, 'Will I get married next year, if yes then become heavy, if I won’t then become light', then the stone become light or heavy depending on the answer.
It so happened that there was a gentleman who was an atheist. He never believed in God. And he was in the Indian Air force. When he retired at the age of 60, with the money he got he bought a farm house. And in the farm house he found this stone.
Then the Mother Divine, Devi came to him in his dream and said, ‘Look, I am here’ (in the stone).
First he freaked out. His wife said, 'Let’s sell this'.
Then he said from then on his whole life was transformed. So he came with that stone to our Bangalore ashram.
Usually she does not go anywhere (referring to the Mother Divine in the stone).
He asked her, ‘If the President of India calls you, will you go? She said, ‘No’.
He asked her, ‘If Gurudev calls, will you go? She said, ‘Yes.’
She gives permission to only two persons to touch and lift her as of now, myself and that man who owns it. And she said (to the owner), 'You go to Gurudev's ashram. He is there'. And so he came to the ashram.
He was so shocked and surprised when she said this. He said, 'I asked her a hundred times and a hundred times she said, ‘Take me there'.’ It’s interesting!
Sometime, we will bring her here to Germany. She said wherever I go she will come with me. The stone has said she will come. So we will bring her here.
We had several scientists come and they were all fascinated. They didn’t know what to think about it. The stone becomes as heavy as 200 hundred kilos; you cannot even lift it if the answer is no. If the answer is yes, then you can lift it like a feather.
Something can become as light as a feather, or so heavy that you cannot even lift it off the ground. It’s a challenge to science.
