On 24th January, I came to Dubai from Chennai to join the job, which Amma had found for me. As I was in a hurry to start from Chennai, I forgot to get the address of Amma’s Mandram, in Dubai.
It was only after coming to Dubai that I came to know, that Dubai is one among the seven islands in the United Arab Emirates. The population in Dubai is eight lakh fifty thousand (850,000); the area is three thousand eight hundred and eighty five square kilometres (3,885 sq. km). It is the second largest island. It is easy to find the Mandram in a small town, but finding the Mandram in a country is rather difficult. I was a bit confused. I went to a Tamil Nadu hotel in Dubai and enquired of them about Amma’s Mandram. A gentleman showed me the way to the Mandram. On the way, I asked another person. He told me to ask the community group there. As it was a Wednesday, there was no pooja in the Mandram. I felt sure that there would be pooja on Friday. On Friday, I went to that ‘Sindhi’ community group. On their notice board, it was written that there was pooja at 5 p.m. Exactly at five, they started the pooja.
Almost three hundred people participated in the Mandram Vazhipaatu. The devotees belonged to different regions – Tamil, Malayali, Telugu, Kannada, and Northern Indians. The Mandram president is Shri. Sundar. Sakthi Sundar and other Sakthis welcomed everyone and took special care of the devotees. They gave discourses about Maruvathur Temple, our Amma, and Annai. The miracles of Amma reach across the oceans. They spread all over the world and prove that all of Amma’s children are living together in the Sakthi Age (Yugam)! There is a reason for me to write about this, in the Sakthi Olhi. It is indeed amazing to see that all the devotees of Amma, here, attend the pooja with great devotion and fervour. It is my request that Amma’s devotees in India, too, may attend the Vaara Vazhipaatu, as far as they can and get Amma’s blessings.
