Ma Jaya speaks in a live February 2010 question and answer session, when a chela (student) asks about Ma's paintings of gods and goddesses associated with the Vedic and Hindu traditions and the lineage of Kali Natha Yoga and Ma's Guru, Neem Karoli Baba. At the time of this recording, Ma was painting a series of Sri Bhagavati, Sri Bhagavat, and Rudra paintings. These are among the many names associated with Shakti and Shiva, the divine manifestations of female and male energy.

Ma responds with an explanation of the difference between the soul, which is always joyful, and the human heart, which can be broken until one learns to fall in love with the soul's beauty.
