The Power Of Angavalam

Mel Maruvathur, in those days, hadn’t become as popular as it is now! Siddhar Peetam was a very simple place of worship. It was like a small, thatched place!

I was one among the numerous devotees, whom Amma had in those days. My wife had come to the Temple even before I did. My wife is illiterate. She would always tell me that she wanted to go to Mel Maruvathur. Hence, I sent her to the Temple with a good companion.

Following the footsteps of my wife, my family and I began to take part in the Poojas at our Mandram. In 1988, our Amma conducted a spiritual conference for the development of natural resources, on Marina seashore. It was splendid! In connection with this, there was a grand Velvi. While our Mandram people were coming back home, we stayed at Siddhar Peetam. Sakthis from our Mandram lay in a corner and slept. We got up at 3 A.M. My wife told me to take a bath and do Angavalam with wet clothes on. I did exactly what she told me to. After doing Angavalam, I felt rather sick! I really vomited. I was surprised to see an object coming out of my mouth, with foam!

I had been suffering with severe stomach ache for almost five years. It was really unbearable. But, since the day I did Angavalam, I have never had that stomach ache! I understood the greatness and power of Angavalam. Through this experience, Amma let me know the importance of spiritual feeling within. I started doing service in whatever way I could. I joined the group, which was doing cleaning work around the Temple.

On several occasions, I had great experiences! Several wonders! Several miracles! A lot of good results! Our Amma is very merciful. In this time of Amma’s Avatar, devotees are blessed with wonderful experiences. Behind each red-dressed-devotee, there is a history!

In Developing A Spiritual Toolset

By practising the teachings of the Avatars, we are able to preserve and promote a spiritual toolset, which we know to be vital in life in any world.


For The Soul

The vedic prayers of the Avatars, written by Their divine guidance and blessings, are wonderful catalysts to connect with our true selves. They are essential steps and guides on our journey backwards.



Practise To Win

Chant, do, detach. The 'DO' is to be found in sadhana, also glibly called spiritual practice. The toughest step in the beginning, because rarely does one fancy doing, here are some nice ways to DO.



Look Into 'I'

And see the real 'I'. Question, evaluate, and transform. Be good, do good, see good, and all that wonderful, fluffy goodness. The final step in being divine, or as close as you can make it.
