I have been living in Switzerland with my husband for five years. Although I was reluctant to go abroad, I agreed to marry as I had begun to cross the age of marriage. I came here only with dreams suitable for an average girl. All that I wanted was an understanding husband, who would love me. I felt that I could face any other difficulty in life.
Contrary to my expectations, even within a few months, I began to wonder why God has given me this kind of a life. My husband was totally different from what I wanted him to be. I spent days crying.
Days passed by. After two years, a friend of mine in Canada, who is a staunch devotee of our Amma, sent me a small photo of Adigalaar Amma with Adi Parasakthi. She told me to recite the Moola Manthiram and pray to Amma. She also gave me the telephone number of the Mandram in Switzerland. As per my friend’s advice, I began to pray to Amma. Even though I contacted the Mandram, I couldn’t go there alone as it was far away from my home. In this manner, two more years passed by. As I couldn’t bear my sufferings anymore, I decided to go to the Mandram. I felt that whatever would happen didn’t matter to me. After all, I am going to Amma only. “Whatever problems may arise in my house, You may solve it, Amma,” I told myself, placing my burdens on Amma. It was the Chitra Pournami day and I went to the Mandram alone.
As soon as I entered the Mandram and joined the pooja, which was going on, I could sense changes occurring within myself. We all began to recite the shlokas together. I understood that, once we go to Amma’s Mandram, all our sorrows will certainly go away within a few days.
When I went to the Mandram the next time, my husband accompanied me. The first time I went to the Mandram, I prayed to Amma to change my husband’s attitude and behaviour. “If he doesn’t change, please allow me to live alone,” I told Amma, crying bitterly. Within a few days, I could see a lot of changes in my husband. Amma answered my prayers. Now, we go to the Mandram together. Yes! Amma wanted me to be with my husband and not away from him. I pray to Amma to bless us ever. Once we surrender ourselves to Amma, Amma will not let us down. I have unshakeable faith in Amma.
