Question: According to some teachings Mahavatar Babaji was born by the power of the mind and Padma Sambhava was born from the Lotus flower of the mind. Are their birth stories real or are they just symbols with meaning.
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Seoul, Korea in 2016.
My beloved, there are many, many teachings found in the world that sets certain beings apart as having been born in a special way. You have, of course, Jesus and the virgin birth, you have Gautama Buddha being born in a very special way and you have various claims about beings who were born exclusively of the mind. None of these teachings are correct, my beloved.
What is the entire purpose of a spiritual being taking embodiment or manifesting some physical presence on the earth? It is not to demonstrate superiority but to demonstrate the path that all people can walk to the ascended state. The more special a being would be, whether through its birth or in other ways, the more it would defeat that purpose.
You see that the entire idea that some beings are born in a special way that cannot be replicated by other people is simply not correct. It is an offspring of the fallen consciousness and its desire to always make some people special so that you who see yourselves as normal people cannot follow them. Look at how the Christian religion has used the concept of the virgin birth to set Jesus apart and make so many people think that it is blasphemy for them to think they could follow the path to Christhood.
You recognize here that it is not that it is impossible for a spiritual being to manifest a body through the powers of the mind. It is possible to do so, it is just that it has no purpose and it is, in fact, not allowed by the Karmic Board who are overseeing the evolution of earth. Therefore, it does not take place in practicality. Those who want to enter a physical body on earth have to go through the arduous process of being born in the regular way as everyone else.
Added by Mother Mary: There are, of course, exceptions to every rule, as there are ascended masters who have received a dispensation to manifest a physical body for a time without going through the process of physical birth and the growth to adulthood. This happened to Saint Germain as the Wonderman of Europe and to Jesus after his mission in Galilee ended. Yet these are rare exceptions.
Babaji was born in the normal way but has maintained his physical body for much longer than normal. Padma Sambhava was born in the normal way in his last embodiment.
