Sakthi Olhi, 2002 devotees' experiences translated from Tamil into English.

I am writing this from Kerala. My marriage took place in May, 2001. It was through my mother-in-law that I knew about Mel Maruvathur. From that day, I have been worshipping Amma. I conceived in the same month (May, 2001). Unfortunately, in the second month of my pregnancy, I had a miscarriage. The bleeding did not stop even after a month! We consulted several doctors, took several medicines, but all in vain. My mother-in-law prayed to Amma that, if I become all right, she would write to Sakthi Olhi. The next day, we were to consult an Ayurvedic doctor. When…
My husband had been working in a very good private company. Due to lay-offs, my husband was compelled to retire voluntarily. Once, when he had to attend an interview, he happened to lose the original certificates. We have been Amma’s devotees since 1984. My father would pray to Amma every day, to help my husband get a job and would write Amma’s Moola Manthram every day. My mother would read the Manthira Nool daily. All my family members began to perform a mass prayer. In a few days, my husband got a very good job in a reputed company! Amma…
My name is Deepa. M. Kumar. I have been a devotee of Amma from childhood itself. I am doing B.Ed. by postal education. My main subject is English. The second subject is Mathematics. When I got the papers by post, I found that Mathematics was very difficult. I doubted whether I would pass the exams. My friends asked me, “Why did you decide to choose Maths? You cannot study Maths without help. You could have chosen Sociology instead.” I became confused. Before my exams, I stood in front of Amma and prayed to Her, “Amma, please help me score good…
We have known Amma for nine years now. Amma has shown several wonders in our lives. I wanted to do B.Ed. My mother prayed to Amma to secure me a seat for B.Ed. She decided to do service, during Irumudi. That year, four thousand five hundred candidates had applied for B.Ed. Among them, only one hundred and twenty got the seat. Among those one hundred and twenty, I was included. This was due to Amma’s blessings only. After completing B.Ed., I thought of doing M.Sc. Praying to Amma to fulfil my wish, I sent the application. I was successful. In…
I am a student, studying Fine Arts in Kuttralam Parasakthi Women’s College. This is a miracle Amma has shown in my life. I lost my mother in my childhood. My father remarried. I am living with my step-mother. I have a brother and a sister. Once, my step-mother was hospitalised. Her stomach had become swollen. The doctors couldn’t find out the reason. My chithi (step-mother) was admitted in Shankaran Koyil, as well as Palaiyam Kottai government hospitals. They couldn’t diagnose the reason. The doctors at Kovilpatti found out the reason. They said that, my chithi was suffering from liver stone.…
We live in Mumbai. We have three children. Two of them are employed. We wished that the third son must be given good education, but he was not good at studies. Hence, my husband and I were sad. During that time, I came to know that devotees from Mumbai were going to Mel Maruvathur for Irumudi. Praying to Amma to help my son study well, I went along with them to the temple. I bought a Manthira Nool from the temple. I have been reading the book, both in the morning and in the evening. I told my son, too,…
All of sudden, one day, my mother suffered from neck pain. At once, mother’s left eye and both legs became immobile! She fell down. She was immediately hospitalised. Mother stayed in the hospital for two months. The treatment did not bring about good results. Then, we prayed to Amma. Amma didn’t let me down. Amma heard my prayers and because of Her blessings, my mother became all right. She can walk well and work well, now! I am ever grateful to Amma.
A dispute was taken to court and it has been a year since then. No verdict was passed. On 22nd January, 2002, there was a trial. I prayed to Amma and went to the court. In the court, I repeatedly said Amma’s 108 Guru Potri. Amma answered my prayers. The verdict was in my favour! The decision was just. I got justice, because of Amma’s blessings only!
In the month of March, last year, my son had a problem at his workplace. We couldn’t find a solution. It was certain that only Amma could help us. I prayed to Amma and told Her that only She could help us. That day, when I was reciting Amma’s Moola Manthram, I felt someone tell me, “If you are not physically well, you read Sakthi Kavacham! If you want your wish fulfilled, read Adigalaar 108 Potri fifty one times!” At once, I felt that it was only Amma, the Divine Mother, Who was telling me this. It seemed an Oracle…
It was the year 1999. We had known only a little about Amma. In our bedroom, we had kept a picture of Amma. I was carrying my second child. It was the seventh month. In a few days, after the picture was kept in the bedroom, I developed chicken pox. Day by day, it increased. Even after ten days, it did not decrease. My husband prayed to Amma for my good health, promising that he would go to Mel Maruvathur as soon as I became well. From the very next day, it began to decrease! In a few days, I…
I am a paediatrician. My husband is a surgeon. We have been devotees of Amma for the last twenty five years. Two years before, we found a tumour on the left side of my neck. It began to grow. My husband performed surgery. We found it cancerous and sent it for further analysis. Only Amma knows how much we suffered mentally. We prayed to Amma. How merciful Amma is! That tumour, which was really a cancer, was changed into a simple tumour by Amma. The biopsy report showed that it wasn’t cancer! The miracles Amma has shown in our family…
My seven year old grandson (daughter’s son) had not been listening to me for almost a year. He wouldn’t obey whatever I would tell him. He would refuse to go to school. It was indeed a change in his behaviour! He became rather stubborn. I couldn’t manage him at all. These changes in him made all of us worry about him. I prayed to Amma. I promised myself that, if my grandson changed his behaviour, I would write to Sakthi Olhi. Very soon, we saw a noticeable change. He began to obey us. Now, he goes to school regularly and…
We have been living in Gujarat for four years. We went to Mel Maruvathur, last October, to do Paada Pooja to Amma. I sincerely thanked Amma for saving us from the disastrous earthquake. Then, I asked Amma about getting a job abroad. Amma immediately said, “Wait for a while. I shall get you a job overseas very soon. You will get a call from abroad and they, themselves, will give you the job!” What Amma said proved to be true. In April, 2002, I received a letter from Kuwait for an interview. Even the air ticket was sent to me…
I have been having back pain for a few years. Although I consulted many doctors, their medicines couldn’t cure me. I decided to do Angavalam at Mel Maruvathur temple. Saying, “Guruvadi Sharanam! Thiruvadi Sharanam,” I began the circumambulation. I was amazed that I was rolling on the floor with the speed of a ceiling fan! After the Angavalam, I haven’t experienced back pain at all! If we pray to Amma sincerely with faith, Amma answers our prayers. I got the good result of performing Angavalam. I thank Amma.
My daughter is living in America. As the due date for her delivery was approaching, my husband and I left for America on 3rd March, 2001. Praying to Amma, we left Karoor. For us, everything is Amma! On 4th April, 2001, my daughter had gone for a check-up. The doctor said that, she would deliver on 16th April, 2001. That night, I had a dream. I saw in my vision that the whole house was decorated with Neem leaf garlands! A Sakthi came near me. She gave me a lemon and a few Neem leaves. She told me, “You are…
My brother was suffering from cancer of the bone in his leg. It began to spread towards the liver. Even though the doctors treated him, we found only temporary relief. The doctors began Homeotherapy. While my brother was being given the treatment, his health became worse; he lost consciousness and began to talk incoherently. The doctors took him to the I.C.U immediately. They told me that they had no hope at all. I stood in front of Amma’s picture and prayed to Her earnestly to save my brother. He continued rambling for three days. On the fourth day, my brother…
My sister and I had to face several difficulties, during our education. By Amma’s blessings, both of us passed the exam in 2001 and got the certificate. My elder sister wanted to join B.Ed and was going to send the application. While she was taking out the required certificates, the most important one - the B.Com degree certificate - was missing! We searched everywhere in the house. As it was I, who had kept it carefully among the other certificates, I felt sad when we couldn’t find it. I prayed to Amma to help me find the degree certificate. When…
My son remained jobless for several months. There were several problems at home. We prayed to all Gods and Goddesses. I have been reading Sakthi Olhi for a year. A devotee of Amma, near our house, gives me Sakthi Olhi. I wish I could go to Mel Maruvathur. I prayed to Amma to get him a job. I told myself that I shall write to Sakthi Olhi. What a wonder! It is amazing that within three months, my son got a job in a very good company. I would like to share this good news with everyone through Sakthi Olhi.…
I am retired from a government job. I am living on the pension, which I am receiving. Some of my relatives didn’t like this. They went to a magician and told him to perform black magic on me. As a result of this, I had to face a lot of difficulties and undergo several trials. At last, it ended in such a way that I lost my wife! It was at that time, that Sakthi Sahadevan gave me a calendar from Siddhar Peetam. I hung the calendar in the southwest corner of our house. After a month, on a Full…
I am one among the Sakthis at Madurai Ellis Nagar Mandram. There are seven members in my family. My eldest sister, Menaka was not married, even though she was twenty nine years old. A Sakthi at our Mandram said to me, one day, “Pray to Amma! Get up at 3 o’clock in the morning. Read Amma’s 108 and 1008 manthras by 6 o’clock. Amma will find a groom for your sister.” I did what the Sakthi told me to do. From 14th July, last year, I would wake up every day, early morning and read Manthira Nool. Within just fifteen…
I had been working in the army. After I retired, I began to go to Kesavapuram Mandram and do service there. I have three daughters and two sons. By Amma’s blessings, they are all doing well. My younger son passed +2 (12th standard) with average marks. I wanted him to join the army. He didn’t pass in the written test. I prayed to Amma to show him the right path. One night, I saw Amma in my dream. I saw my son near Amma, wearing the army uniform! The following day, we got a letter from the army headquarters at…
In February, 2002, one day, I began to develop severe chest pain. I started bleeding from both the nose and mouth. We went to Thirupathi and consulted the doctors there. Afterwards, we went to the doctors at Chennai. I couldn’t find any improvement. We decided to go to Mel Maruvathur and do Paada Pooja to Amma. Amma looked at me and asked, “Do you have chest pain?” I told Amma that I did. Amma told me that Amma would give me some medicines and I need to take them regularly! Amma also said that, I would be all right. The…
I have been coming to Mel Maruvathur very often, for eleven years. Recently, I had back pain. Four months have passed. It becomes severe, while washing clothes. I didn’t go to any doctor, but, one day, I found that I could neither bend, nor remain straight. The pain became severe. I had booked a token for Kalasha Vilakku Pooja in advance. I brought Kalasham and Vilakku from the temple. I had collected the Theertham in a bottle. When I couldn’t bear the pain, I told my wife to take a little Theertham in her hand and rub it slowly on…
Last November, twins were born to me prematurely. I lost one of them. It was at that time, that I came to know about our Amma, through an aunt of mine, who belongs to Thiruppuvanam Mandram. The other child wasn’t very healthy. I would say the Moola Manthram every day, apply Amma’s kumkum on the infant’s body, and pray to Amma to save the child. My child had a problem, while passing urine. The doctors said that, they would have to perform surgery. This increased my anxiety and I became sad. I began to say Moola Manthram and apply Amma’s…
We have been working for the Central Government for twenty years. For eight years, we have been trying to build a house in Mysore. When everything seemed to be going well, some obstacle would prevent us from buying the land. I told my younger sister about our problem. She reads Sakthi Olhi regularly. She told me, “Don’t worry. You pray to Amma! Certainly, everything will be all right.” With full faith, I did pooja to Amma on a Friday. Within a week, we were able to buy the land! It has been registered in my name. While we were unable…
