Sakthi Olhi, 2003 devotees' experiences translated from Tamil into English.

We have been worshipping Amma for twenty years. Some devotees pray to Amma and seek Her help, only when they are in trouble. We worship Amma every day, without fail. My husband, son, and I live in Mumbai. Two months ago, the doctors found a tumour in my leg! They said that, I had to undergo an operation. They said that, they would send the biopsy sample for further examination. I didn’t know what to do. My unshakeable faith in Amma made me agree to the surgery. Praying to Amma to help me, I began to write Moola Manthiram fifty…
I have been worshipping Amma for five years. I am living happily only by Amma’s blessings. My husband was an alcoholic. He wouldn’t care about the family. By Amma’s blessings, he is a changed man, now! He takes care of our family. I was suffering from severe headache for a month. When I would take the tablets, the pain would go away. After a while, it would come back. When I wake up in the morning, the headache would be unbearable! I prayed to Amma to help me get rid of my headache. I promised Amma that I would send…
I got married in 1994. In 1996, I was in the family way. On 31st May, 1996, I developed labour pains. We went to the doctor. He said that, I had to undergo an operation. Even if I underwent an operation, the doctor would only be able to save either my child, or me! Preparations were made for the surgery. I was taken to the labour room at 7:30 in the morning. They gave me an injection. I began to say 108 Potri Manthiram, praying to Amma to save both my child and me. At once, we heard thunder! It…
We get Sakthi Olhi every month, in our house. We have been worshipping Amma, ever since we knew Her. We have occasional problems and difficulties in our life. Our deep faith in Amma helps us overcome the difficulties. We have peace of mind! Three months ago, we had financial problems. We consoled ourselves, saying that Amma would certainly find a way to solve this problem. It was indeed a wonder! One day, an insurance agent came to our house. He told us that a policy in my name had matured! It was taken by my husband several years ago. It…
I am a devotee of Amma. My daughter’s grand-daughter lives in America. The time had come for her delivery. My daughter decided to go to America to help her. She went to the embassy, but couldn’t get a visa. They refused. We were all worried. Several days passed. One day, I went to the Adaiyar Sri Padmanabha Swami Temple. I stood before the photo of our Adigalaar Amma and prayed to Her. It was a Thursday. I also promised that I would write to Sakthi Olhi. In the next interview, my daughter got a visa and went to America. On…
My daughter’s name is Veenaipriya. She had no interest in studies! In exams, she would get only a few marks. As a result, her teachers often called me to the school. They told me that, if my daughter didn’t study well, it would affect the reputation of their school. So, I began to send her for tuitions. After a week, the teacher told me that she found it very difficult to make my daughter understand her lessons! I approached several other tuition teachers. No one was able to teach her! The school authorities expelled her from the school! We were…
I had been suffering from Jaundice two years ago. I was fighting for my life. I regained my life, but for two years, I was struggling to live as my liver was affected. I was admitted in a good hospital, but the medicines did not cure me. Hence, I was taken to a famous clinic in T. Nagar, in Chennai. The doctors removed the water from my body. As a result, my body lost strength. My wife would recite Amma’s 1008 and 108 Potris, sitting near my bed. One day, leaving me in the hospital, she went to Mel Maruvathur.…
I have been worshipping Amma since 1986. After I was married, I didn’t have any problem to go to Amma whenever I wanted to, because my husband is a devotee of Amma as well. In 1997, I had to undergo hysterectomy. On the fifth day after surgery, I became unconscious all of a sudden! After a long while, I became conscious and said, “Om Sakthi! Om Sakthi!” It is only Amma’s blessings that brought me back to life! Last month (October 2002), my husband had suffered from chest pain. It was night. I am a nurse in a hospital. That…
I have been worshipping Amma for four years. I don’t know any Mantra. We are a Tamil family, settled down in France. My husband has suffered from several illnesses and it is my belief that our Amma only saved him from all those. This is the reason for my faith in Amma. My husband doesn’t believe in God. He would say, “If there is God, let Him come in front of my eyes! Only then shall I trust in God.” My husband has a friend. He possesses several vices. There have been many difficulties that we had to face, because…
Three years ago, we were living in Thenkasi Melakaram. We were doing service at the Vazhipaatu Mandram, there. We have been worshipping Amma for ten years. Now, we have come to Perumalpuram, Thirunelveli. My daughter is living in Quatar with her husband. It was only by Amma’s blessings that she got married. My son’s name is Subramanian. He has a wife and two daughters. In October, 2002, he became ill. It was rather serious. He had severe pain in his abdomen and was unable to pass urine for three days! He was admitted in a hospital. The doctors took an…
