Whom the world remember as Aadi Devi (first deity) or Eve, as written in many texts. In Vedas, Saraswati is described as the goddess of Knowledge. We now understand that Saraswati is the spiritual daughter of Prajapita Brahma and also is the World mother (Jagat Amba) through whom God fulfils everyone's wishes. Therefore Jagadamba is worshipped so much. Wishes are fulfilled by incorporeal one, through this world mother. Come and know the divine journey of 'most worshipped' human soul. How serving and simple the life of our Yagya mother was, know through those who actually lived with her, witnessed her virtues and spiritual stage, listened to the nectar of knowledge flowing from Mamma's mouth.
Mamma's loukik birth was in 1920. Born to mother 'Rocha' and father 'Pokardas' in Amritsar, Punjab. Below is the Full video of the early story from 1936...
''Most virtuous soul of all'' - everyone who witnessed Mamma, would feel this and tell you. Mamma came to Yagya in its early stage and upon listening Murli, immediately surrendered in the God's mission. At such young age of 17, Mamma became spiritually matured and took the responsibility of the Yagya in hands. When there was a court case run against Om Mandli, Mamma (then known as Om Radhe) appeared in court and gave such testimony (gawahi) that even the judge was convinced. Mamma explained to them how the incorporeal God has placed Dada Lekhraj as the medium and he is teaching us through this Dada. It is God, our spiritual father, she explains, who commands us to remain pure (pure in mind, words and actions) and not any human being. Lastly, mamma gives said that it is a human being's right to decide and direct their own life. Taking into account, all points made by mamma, the Om Mandli wins the case.
Picture Story with song
''Baba said, Mamma executed. No question. No doubt arose in mind.''
Mamma had a very sharp intellect. She would explain Baba's Murli in classes after churning the knowledge said in murli. Churning, dharna, introspection, inner joy, silence, royalty, and belongingness to God - these are few of the qualities Mamma acquired after coming in Yagya. Mamma had won the hearts of all surrendered brothers and sisters. Everyone loved her. Mamma's motto was 'One Faith, One Power' & 'Never give or take the sorrow'. Mamma was actually a reflection of what Murli or Shrimat is. Mamma was the ideal Godly student. No one matched her in obeying Shrimat. Mamma use to wake up at 2 AM in morning for Amritvela Yog (meditation). Not only she mastered the Self and senses, but also guided many in this path of spiritual upliftment, in becoming a deity from a human being. By only seeing Mamma, many decided to give away their 5 vices and become as pure and great as her.
Mamma's role in Gyan Yagya is special since the beginning. And this role became eminent after 1950 when the group settled in Mount Abu and started the service across India. Mamma went on services and many new centres started to open. Mamma was responsible for the finance of Yagya, and so she always kept economy and effectiveness balanced (i.e. only spend money for a right purpose)
Mamma had many virtues and as the devotees worship 9 forms of the goddess, mamma indeed had all 9 powers imbibed naturally which she used for upliftment of souls.
SARASWATI - Goddess of Knowledge - Mama listened to the Knowledge (murli) from Shiv Baba and imbibed it and played the Sitar of Knowledge, and inspired everyone through her own inculcation (dharna), and brought a realization to all.
JAGADAMBA - Goddess of Fulfilment - giving love and bestowing an eternal blessing of peace and happiness.
DURGA - Goddess of Shakti - who takes power from Shiva and removes all weaknesses (durgunn) within the self, and also helps to remove weaknesses of others.
KALI - Goddess of Fearlessness - who is fearless and courageous and destroys all negativity, evil, and devilish personality traits.
GAYATRI - Goddess of Auspicious Omens - Mamma gave importance to the elevated versions spoken by Shiv Baba and used each version as a mantra and this is why there is an importance of Gayatri mantra, which works like magic to remove all bad omens.
VAISHNAV - Goddess of Purity - who radiates light of purity and empowers all to become divine through pure vision, pure thoughts, pure words, and deeds.
UMA - Goddess of Enthusiasm - who brings hope, zeal, and enthusiasm (umang/utsaha).
SANTOSHI - Goddess of Contentment – The one who brings a feeling of deep contentment.
LAXMI - Goddess of Wealth – The one who bestows upon souls the unlimited Wealth of spiritual knowledge and virtues.

Picture Story (Mamma Yaad)
A Great Yogi Stage
Dadi Prakashmani (previous chief of organisation) remembers and shares an experience: "Mamma's personality was very powerful. Mamma would look at you and not saying a word, you will grasp what she has to say. There was a strong motherly feeling around her which anyone who sees her would feel. She was a living example of an elevated Yogi (one who is in deep meditation with God, Shiv Baba). It was around 1960," Dadi continues, "when Mamma was on service around India, opening centres at different places. Once, she came to Punjab, where a small centre (Geeta pathshala) was recently opened. It was known that many local residents were against the knowledge shared by Brahma Kumaris. When they got to know that their chief (Mamma) has come, they gathered around the centre to protest. They asked to meet mamma. Seeing them furious, the sisters of that local centre refused to let them meet mamma. But they forcefully entered the centre and went up to mamma's room." Dadi continues with a smile; ''When they saw mamma sitting in a corner in Tapasya, they instantly calmed down and sat near the door. In a while, mamma spoke to them. They listened and peacefully came out. They ended their protest after even seeing the divinity of mamma Saraswati, whom they did not know earlier."
There was a magical force in her words. Mamma's words had changed lives and inspired to become great. Mamma became right hand in service with Prajapita Brahma baba. During services across the country, Mamma's voice was recorded. Do you wish to listen to her Murli? Here it is. After continuous 28 years of effort making and churning of knowledge, Mamma became complete in June 1965 and flew to Shiv baba to become his right hand in World Transformation. Brahmans yet remember the life of Mamma, her virtues, words, and actions (karma) and takes inspiration.
