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

It was very doubtful whether I would get married. My age was already 26. I had been worshipping Amma for over fifteen years. When my marriage was being delayed, our neighbours began to make fun of me. I felt sad. I stood in front of Amma, literally crying and asked Her, “Amma! Is Your power a false one? Or is it that the devotion and the faith I have in You are false?” So far, Amma had answered all my questions during my meditation (dhyanam), or in my dream; but Amma didn’t give me an answer, when I asked her…
We have been worshipping Amma for several years. Amma has wiped away many of our sufferings after we went to Mel Maruvathur. Last year, my daughter was suffering from bleeding for more than a month. Our family doctor treated her twice. Afterwards, he said that, it would be the same for a year. We were very worried. I didn’t know what to do. I prayed to Guru Amma, “Amma! Please stop my daughter’s bleeding within three days. Please help her become all right!” What a wonder! The very third day, my daughter became all right! We were all relieved. Amma…
Usilampatti Vattam Ampattayanpatti Singamuthu is my friend. His wife is Anandi. About eleven months ago, a baby boy was born to them. That baby was born without anus! The parents were very sad. As far as they could, they took him to several doctors. The last doctor, whom they consulted, told them that the child would need an operation. It would cost `15,000/-. The parents were not rich enough. When they came to Nagapattinam, they met me and told me everything. I told them, “There is no need for any medication! You pray to Adigalaar Amma. Tell Amma, ‘Amma! By…
I had a muscular pain in my waist. It was very severe. None of the medicines I took had any effect. I went to four doctors. All of them did scanning, x-ray, and all tests. They advised that surgery is the only remedy. I went to a physiotherapist and took his treatment. Daily, I would chant 108 Potri Manthiram. On Vaikashi Thingal Day (the first Monday in the month of Vaikashi – May), we received Sakthi Olhi by post. When I was reading Sakthi Olhi, I came to that page, where Amma had given an interview. Amma said, “Ariviyal is…
On 28th November, 2002, I had to be present at the Valliyur Court, with all the required documents. On that morning, I started from Madurai by the State Transport. I had taken all the documents, which were required for the case on that day. I kept the box safe with me. When we reached Kovilpatti, the bus stopped for breakfast. Both the driver and the conductor got down from the bus. Before I could come back after having breakfast, the bus started! Several co-travellers and I shouted to stop the bus, but the driver didn’t listen to us. I became…
I have been worshipping the Divine Mother and Adigalaar Amma for seven years. Whenever we go to Mel Maruvathur, all the family members go to Amma, perform Paada Pooja, and get Amma’s blessings. I have been fortunate enough to be successful in all my endeavours. I am very well off, today. Being self-centred, I have prayed to Amma to fulfil many of my wishes. Amma has fulfilled all of them. The last time when I met Amma, I bowed at Her feet. Involuntarily, some thought filled my mind. It was indeed a change that Amma made me feel. This was…
After my husband, Sakthi Thiru Narayanan, passed away, I have to take care of my family all alone. I had to face difficult situations and solve problems. We are very devoted to Amma! Daily prayers! Thondu at our Mandram – by doing all these, my worries began to decrease. But for these, I wouldn’t have been able to do anything. On 14th March, 2001, there was Thanjai Sakthi Peetam Kumbhabhishekam. Our Amma came to Thanjai. Amma happily accepted our invitation and came for Paada Pooja to our house! Amma not only blessed us, but also gave Arul Vakku. Just as…
I have been having menstrual problems. When I went to the doctor, he told me to get a scan done. When the results came, the doctor said that, I had to undergo an operation in order to remove the uterus. I began to pray to Maruvathur Amma. I prayed to Her to make me all right without undergoing surgery. After two days, I had to go to the doctor again. Amazingly, after seeing the results, the doctor told me that there wasn’t any need for an operation! This is nothing but Amma’s miracle! I had promised myself that I would…
I have been going to Mel Maruvathur Temple for five years, with Sakthimalai and Irumudi. Two years ago, I completed my college education. In order to register my name in the employment exchange, I couldn’t find my certificates! I didn’t know how they were missing. I became worried and afraid. I came back home. Although I searched everywhere, I couldn’t find them. The next day, I prayed to Amma, “Amma! If I can find my certificates, I shall write to Sakthi Olhi. Have mercy, Amma!” I found my certificates! The same year, on 2nd November, I met with an accident.…
In 2001, for some strange reason, my son left me and went away. He did not come to me for one and a half years. He wouldn’t talk to me. When I see him, I don’t feel like talking to him. I felt it was a strange play by destiny. One day, I saw Sakthi Yugam on Raj TV, at 7:10 A.M. I began to watch the programme on all days. One day, I prayed to Amma, “Amma! You help and bless innumerable people on this Earth. Please be kind enough to bring my son back home by next year.…
I belong to Sirumukai Mandram and do service there. At the time of Thaipoosam festival, I got a chance to do service to Amma. My duty was to go to the nearby places and tell everyone about the power and greatness of Irumudi and Sakthimalai. I would bring to the Mandram those, who decided to go to the Temple with Irumudi. I had to do additional jobs at the Mandram. It was during this time that my son, Sakthivel Sankar had his half-yearly exams. He was studying in the sixth standard. I had to teach him, too. I was confused.…
I am a civil engineer and work independently. I undertake building contracts and supply building materials. I had supplied a type of stone (Sengal) to a person. He didn’t pay me the amount for a very long time. Whenever I would ask him, he would escape with some reason. At last, I prayed to Amma. Promising that, if I get my money back, I would write to Sakthi Olhi, I went to him to ask for the money. What a wonder! The man, who could easily find excuses, told me this time that the money was ready with him. It…
I have been having a problem, because of a family dispute since November, 1976. I was very much disturbed. This case was stayed in the Delhi High Court. It was related to housing. With the help of the Panchayat, an agreement was made. The papers of exchange were made and registered. At first, the Panchayat people said that, whatever I had said was not true, but after I prayed to Amma, they listened to my request and corrected their mistakes. I had prayed to Amma that I would write to Sakthi Olhi. With devotion and reverence, I prostrate in front…
For twenty years, we have been worshipping Amma. We do service (Thondu) to Amma. After I was married, a baby boy was born to me within a year. Amma blessed him and named him ‘Sakthi’. In November, suddenly, he began to suffer from cold. Although the doctor gave him medicine, he was not well. My husband and I sat near our child and read Amma’s Manthira Nool. The next day, we heard that our Amma was coming to Kadaloor. I took my child and went to Amma to get Her blessings. Among the crowd, it was very difficult for me…
My son, Karunakaran, had been suffering from stomach ache for several months. The doctors couldn’t cure him. We prayed to Amma, promising Her that, when my son gets well, we would write to Sakthi Olhi. We began to send him to school. Soon, he became all right. Amma won’t let down anyone, who has faith in Her. Amma has limitless mercy.
After completing B.Com, my son had got a job. For some reason, he left the job. He couldn’t easily find another job and was very much disappointed. I prayed to Amma and decided to do pooja for forty days (Mandalam). I would get up early in the morning, light the lamp, and then recite Moola Manthiram, Venduthal Kooru, 108 Potri, 108 Manthira Kooru, 108 Adigalaar Potri, and Sharanam. I prayed to Amma to secure my son a job, within the forty days and promised that I would write to Sakthi Olhi. On the 27th day, my son got a very…
For a few years, my family has been worshipping Maruvathur Amma. Amma has solved many of our problems. Because of Amma’s blessings and mercy, we have been able to own an independent house and live comfortably. My daughter was married seven years ago, but she doesn’t have a child. She wore Sakthimalai and carried Irumudi to Maruvathur Temple. Amma gave her Arul Vakku and said that, she would be blessed with a baby. My daughter delivered a baby girl and both of them are doing well! I had promised that I would write to Sakthi Olhi and share this happy…
Sakthi Olhi is a guide. Its contents are all counsel from our Guru Amma. As my sugar level was found to be high, I went to the doctor. The doctor said that, I had pressure attack and he gave me the necessary medicine. I became afraid. I prayed to Amma to cure me. I promised Amma that I would write to Sakthi Olhi and send a hundred rupees to the hospital. By Amma’s grace, I am gradually becoming all right! I am writing this to Sakthi Olhi and I have sent a hundred rupees to the hospital. I am grateful…
The Liquor Prohibition Centre has its office behind our house. The liquor that they confiscate is usually thrown behind our house. During the rainy season, it mixes with the stagnant water and the mixture flows into our well. The water becomes contaminated and the stench becomes unbearable. My health did not allow me to fetch water from the nearby wells. I was sad and worried. I stood in front of Amma’s picture and wept. I prayed to Amma, “Amma! Please change our well water into drinking water. I shall ever be thankful to You and I shall write to Sakthi…
My son, M. Aiyyappa, left home in July, 2001. He did not come back. We had been searching for him for three months. Yet, we couldn’t find him. My family worships Amma and we have been doing service for eight years. For five years, we have been going to the Temple with Sakthimalai Irumudi. We prayed to Amma, requesting Her to bring my son back home. I promised Amma that, when he came back, I would write to Sakthi Olhi. I went to Mel Maruvathur and asked Amma Arul Vakku. Amma was observing silence (mounam). By sign language, Amma told…
My family comprises of three members. My mother sells bangles. Whatever she gets, by selling the bangles, would be used for feeding us. This is her only income. If she couldn’t sell the bangles, we would have to starve. She would carry the iron box containing the bangles, from village to village and walk the long distance. One day, my mother left home with bangles. Until 4 ‘o’clock in the evening, no one came to buy the bangles. By evening, she felt very tired. She felt as if she would faint. Near a rice field, she sat down and thought…
During the early days after our marriage, because of the nature of his job, I had to live away from my husband. He was working in Chennai. I was in another place. I wished it would be better, if both of us worked in the same place and we could settle down in life. However, we couldn’t. My mother told me that, if I prayed to Amma sincerely, everything would become all right. I obeyed my mother. Amma blessed me. Soon, my husband got a good job in another company. I got a job in Chennai, too. Both of us…
My family has been worshipping Amma for ten years. On 29th April, 2003, a teacher, who is working in our school, forgot to take his bag, while getting down at Thalaivasal. He had kept in the bag `20,000/-, National Savings certificates, and the question papers for the eighth grade students. He came to school empty-handed. He told me his problem. Those certificates were mine. I prayed to Amma to help me get my Savings certificates back. I went to Aathur and met the bus authorities. I told my colleague to contact the bus office. They told my colleague that the…
My daughter was studying in tenth standard, last year. Last year, she didn’t write the exams. My husband was very unhappy. Every day, he would recite Guru Potri 54 times. My daughter wrote her exams very well. She got a seat in the group, which she wanted. We express our love and gratitude to Amma.
I have been worshipping Amma for fourteen years. At first, I did not have faith in Adigalaar Amma, but later on, I understood that Adigalaar Amma Himself is the Divine Mother. When I was in the family way, after the check-up, the doctor said that, I would deliver the baby on 19th March, 2002. On 18th March, we went for another check-up. They took a scan and found that the baby weighed a little more than normal. Hence, they said that, there wasn’t a chance for normal delivery. I would have to undergo a caesarean. I asked the doctor, if…
