Like in the ancient times Cancer was called as ‘karka’ (कर्क) in India and you also call this thing as cancer since long. Now, the disease cancer is also called ‘cancer’. Just see how it is related. And in Indian language also it is called as the disease of the Cancer, in the sense karka, they call it karka roga (कर्क रोग), you see – two words. They also call it due to the ‘karka roga’ and that also called ‘karka roga’ means – heat producing. It produces heat first of all. And secondly it had another meaning, that in cancer, cancer stands for the Mother.So when you commit sins against the Mother cancer is produced. Sin against the Mother. Cancer sign is the sign of the Mother only; and when you try to commit sins against the Mother this starts. And since my advent this disease has become very prevalent because sin against the Mother is the biggest sin in the modern times. So, one must know that the sin against the Mother will lead, equal, to cancer. So it started from Ganesha tattwa.
Many people who have this problem, Ganesha problem, they may be very good in other things but still, if there is the left Ganesha problem, they should be very, very careful. It’s like a hole in your being. And to overcome that problem you may cover up with something else. Like such people may say, “Oh, I am so great. I will never feel like this.” That’s not a good thing. Just overcome your Ganesha problem with which you are perverted. So all these perversions must be sucked in just like a tortoise sucks in the four limbs within themselves. That is how you must suck in those things. And do not try to overcome by Right Vishuddhi, by saying that you are great or you are this or you are that.
Some people I have seen also try to show off about it and try to say things which looks quite big, but ultimately I find that they have a Left Mooladhara. It’s a serious thing it is, very, very serious. So be careful. Don’t deceive yourself. Anyone of you. Those who have Left Mooladhara problem have to be extremely careful not to be tempted to any supraconscious behaviour or talking…
