Light of the World - Excerpts from writings of H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
The fourth human birth of Adi Shakti was as the Virgin Mary, Mother of Christ. She incarnated in the Middle Eastern kingdom of Judea. In that life She did not marry and did not live like Radha who did not bring forth Her only son, Maha Vishnu, on this earth though She had created Him in the Body of the Virata in the Vaikuntha stage. It was as a virgin that Mary conceived Jesus Christ, the ninth Incarnation of Adi Vishnu. The greatness of this Incarnation cannot be adequately described in words but in the Devi Bhagawad there is a passage about Christ. It tells how He was born in heaven to Radha as Maha Vishnu, the only Son of the Virata. He is none other than Shri Ganesha, the symbol of eternal childhood.
