Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) was an American president who successfully led his country through its greatest internal crisis, the Civil War, preserving the Union and ending slavery.
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has spoken highly of Lincoln on my occasions, below are some extracts of what Shri Mataji Nirmal Devi said of him. Describing him as born-realised soul, that is, a person who was born with his Kundalini awakened, having his Yoga or connection to the divine power.
Abraham Lincoln, a man we call him very great. What was the thing about him? He was very big. Why? Because he could see that when I do not want to be enslaved, why should I have a slave?
Abraham Lincoln believed that everybody must have freedom, and the government should be for the public, for the people. Whatever he talked, he practised it. Whatever he believed in, he worked it out and gave his life for it, that’s why he’s a great man.
You have Abraham Lincoln. What a man! I think his blessings should work out one day in this country [USA]. A saint. What a personality.
When I see Abraham Lincoln I think he was a great brother to the Statue of Liberty. The way he fought for women in such pure love and without taking any money, without charging them anything, to punish the husbands who were drunkards. That’s just like a very good, powerful brother to behave.
