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

When my husband was working abroad, he had a leg injury. When I knew that, I prayed to Amma to bring him back to us safely. Amma heard my prayers and brought my husband home. I had to face a lot of difficulties on several occasions, as I did not have enough money for my husband’s treatment. The only thing, which I could do, was to pray to Amma. It was a wonder! Amma found a way by making my husband’s boss help us financially. My husband is all right, now. I am very, very grateful to Amma. I bow…
I have been working as a forest officer in the Tamil Nadu forest department. A few days ago, on my right foot, I developed pain, which I had never felt before. Day by day, it began to increase. I always take part in sports and I am very particular about my health. Because of the pain, I became worried and fearful. The pain increased. I thought that this pain might be due to my new pair of shoes, or because of the vehicle I had been riding on. I didn’t want to consult a doctor. My younger brother had met…
We were looking for a bride for our son. As the horoscope did not agree with that of my son, I went to Amma and did Paada Pooja. Amma told us to take part in the Velvi at Mel Maruvathur and come back to Her. After the Velvi, when we went back to Amma, we found that Amma was observing silence (mounam). Still, Amma told us, by sign language, to perform the wedding. Even though we tried hard, the marriage did not take place. Meanwhile, we came to know that the girl’s parents were looking for a good match, for…
I am a staunch devotee of Amma. I’m living in Baroda. On 10th February, 2003, I went to Mel Maruvathur and had Amma’s darshan. I bought a few cassettes from the Temple. They are ‘Amma Kavacham’, ‘Irumudiyin Palankal’, ‘Mukti Tharum Maruvathur’, and ‘Ellame Amma’. On 13th, 14th, and 15th February, I played Sakthi Kavacham cassette. In one cassette, there is ‘Mazhai Vental’. After hearing this, I wished that Amma would give us rain. Amma proved that even my thought had Sakthi. Yes! On 17th February, there wasn’t heat at all in Baroda. It wasn’t hot. Dark clouds began to gather.…
We have been worshipping Amma for a few years. Amma has been helping us in different ways. Recently, we thought of going to Canada with the whole family. It was difficult to get a visa. I prayed to Amma to help us get a visa and promised that I would write to Sakthi Olhi. Soon, we got a visa! We had been to Canada and we came back, recently. Again, we went to Canada and London. It is only Amma, who gave us this opportunity to go abroad and come back. I am very grateful to Amma.
I am one among the students, who wrote the tenth standard exam this year. I had done most of the exams very well. But, I was not very satisfied with social studies. I was doubtful whether I would get the first place in the school. My parents told me, “Don’t worry! You pray to Amma! Also, promise Amma that you will write to Sakthi Olhi.” They consoled me. It was the day the results were going to be announced. Early in the morning, we had a telephone call. It was from one of my friends. He said to me, “You…
My nephew’s second child is a baby boy. Till he was fifteen days old, he was very healthy. We do not know what went wrong. For some reason, from the 16th day, he became rather ill. He wouldn’t cry. He wouldn’t drink milk. His hands and feet turned blue! It was a Sunday. Even our family doctor was not available. We took the child to a hospital. The doctors admitted him in the I.C.U and started treatment. No one was allowed to be near him. All of us were standing outside, very sad and crying. The doctors said that, we…
I have known Amma only for a year. This year, I went to Mel Maruvathur with Sakthimalai Irumudi. I had been suffering from severe neck and throat pain, for fifteen days. I went to the doctor. It was strange that even after taking the medicine, I would be all right for a while, but soon, the pain would come back. I prayed to Amma, “Amma! Please cure me of this pain. I shall come to Your Temple with Irumudi this year, too!” Soon, the pain began to go away! Slowly, it went away completely! I have full faith in Amma…
I am a devotee of Amma and am sixty one years old. In May, 2003, I developed pain in the teeth, in my lower jaw. They became very sensitive. I couldn’t sleep. I really suffered. I have known the power of Guru Potri. Hence, before going to bed, I would recite Guru Potri thrice and pray to Amma, “Amma! Please relieve me of this pain. I shall write to Sakthi Olhi about Your mercy and the power of Guru Potri.” I continued reciting the Potri every night. In a few days, the pain totally went away! I had good sleep.…
We worship Amma at our Switzerland Mandram. We have occasional problems in our family, but we were very sad that we did not have a child. Although I conceived twice, I had miscarriages within three months. We were disappointed; but, felt that whatever Amma does is for our good. In May, 2000, I became pregnant. We couldn’t attend the Mandram poojas, as my mother-in-law passed away. Till the seventh month of pregnancy, the doctors said that, everything was fine. However, in the eight month, the doctors said that, the baby hadn’t grown enough and the water in the womb was…
I belong to Tamil Nadu. I am working in Karnataka in a cotton mill. I am a staunch devotee of Mel Maruvathur Amma. Whenever I come to Chennai, I go to Mel Maruvathur. For several days, a machine in our factory had broken down. I was asked to take up the responsibility to repair the machine. My fellow workers and I tried hard and repaired the machine in a week’s time. We were very careful while doing the repairs, but once again, it broke down. Again, we repaired it. Yet, the machine was reluctant to work. We didn’t know the…
Ten years had passed since we were married, but we did not have a child. We consulted several doctors, took several medicines, but they did not have any effect. We went to several Temples. We worshipped all gods and prayed to them. It was then, that we heard about Mel Maruvathur. We went to Amma and heard Amma’s Arul Vakku. Amma said, “Within a year, you will be blessed with a son! Return home happily!” Just as Amma had said, within a year, the child was born! We call him, Sakthi Vel. Amma blessed all of us with this gift.…
By Amma’s blessings, I got married in 1999. I came to America with my husband. In February, 2001, a healthy, beautiful, baby boy was born to us. In July, 2001, I became ill and everyone feared that I would not live long. By Amma’s blessings only, I became all right. The sins, which I have done so far, did not leave me. They took the form of pain on my hand. It was unbearable! I couldn’t even feed my one year old child. I couldn’t even pick up a spoon! If I tried, my hand would become swollen immediately. Gradually,…
A week before, I found that there was a tumour on my thigh. It made me feel very sad. I am fifty seven years old. I was reluctant to go to a hospital. Praying to Amma, I smeared Kalasha Theertham on my thigh. The same night, the tumour broke and a kind of water came out of it! Gradually, the pain became less. On several occasions, Amma has helped me not only by curing my illnesses, but also by giving me a new life. I shall never forget Amma. My family lives only because of the faith, which we have…
I was suffering from severe pain on my right-side, from head to foot! It was unbearable! Although I went to the doctor, took injections, and had medicines, there was no improvement. Then, I went to an Ayurveda doctor. I would apply the oil, which he had given me. That, too, didn’t have any effect. The pain didn’t decrease at all! Every morning, I would go to the Adi Parasakthi Mandram at Karaikkuti and worship there. One day, looking at Amma’s photo, I said to Her, “Amma! I cannot bear this pain at all! Somehow, relieve me of this pain!” After…
Last month, from 11th June, 2003 till 18th June, 2003, there was no water in our well! There are eight families in our colony. The workmen brought a drill. They dug up to forty feet. The water, which had been seeping in so far, stopped suddenly! When I asked others to give us some water, all of them refused. We were in great trouble. I had an idea. When Mel Maruvathur Amma is there to help us, there is no need to worry. On 27th June, 2003, Friday, I prayed to Amma in the evening, “Amma! Dear Mother! Please give…
My husband had been very sad, when he lost his job. I prayed to Amma to help him find a good job. I promised Amma that I would write to Sakthi Olhi. Merciful Amma gave my husband a very good job. When I prayed to Amma, Amma listened to me at once. But, I didn’t keep up my promise. For a whole year, I didn’t write to Sakthi Olhi. Because of this, we had to meet with several problems throughout the year! Only then did I remember that I have to write to Sakthi Olhi. I pray to Amma to…
My sister’s husband met with an accident and suffered a head injury. He was admitted in a private hospital and was in a serious condition. His name is Devaraj. The doctors said that, there was bleeding in sixteen places, inside the brain! They found it very difficult to save him. They said that, even if he survived, they had only 1% hope that he would be his old self and retain his memory! They said that, only God could save him and it would be better for him to undergo surgery. He was admitted in the I.C.U. All our relatives…
Everyone in our family is a devotee of Amma. I had been suffering from throat pain for several months. I couldn’t eat anything! The doctors couldn’t cure me. I prayed to Amma and promised that, when I became all right, I would write to Sakthi Olhi and send money to the Adi Parasakthi Hospital. Very soon, I became well! The throat pain went away. I sent money to the hospital. I am writing to Sakthi Olhi, too. By Amma’s blessings, my family is living happily and peacefully.
My husband is working in a government office. It has been seven years, since I got married. We have two sons. My younger son was born in the seventh month of pregnancy. When he was born, he was under-weight. It was only our Amma, who saved him. After two months, he suffered from brain fever. Again, it was Amma, who saved him! He is very intelligent, now! Although we are blessed with everything, there is a matter of worry. My husband drinks liquor. After coming home, he quarrels with everyone. After spending the whole amount of his salary, he would…
I am studying in college. I had been studying in the village in Tamil medium. When I joined college, all the subjects were taught in English. It was very difficult for me to understand and learn the lessons. A student, who has come to English medium from Tamil medium, can understand my difficulty. I found writing the answers in English very difficult. I found it equally hard to learn everything by heart. I was really worried. For the final exam, I studied well and wrote the exams fairly well. But, one of the exams was very difficult. All the questions…
We worship Amma every day. One year ago, we had paid a friend a certain amount to complete a work. As he didn’t complete the work, we told him to give us back the money. But, he refused to do so! Even though we telephoned him often and met him personally, he didn’t give the money back. Last week, we prayed to Amma and left home to ask our friend for the money. I wasn’t sure at all that he would listen to me. It was my deep faith in Amma, which prompted me to try again. Although I talked…
My parents had been looking for a good bridegroom to marry me. But, the groom’s horoscope wouldn’t agree with that of mine. In January, 2003, I went to Mel Maruvathur carrying Irumudi. By Amma’s blessings, I got married in five months! Amma has blessed me with a very good husband.
My son is working in a software company. In the month of May, the company chose him to go abroad. They said that, he should produce the passport in one week. Although we tried very hard, we didn’t get the passport within that short period. We were very disappointed that he might lose the chance he was given. After two days, we got Sakthi Olhi by post. I read ‘letters to the editor’. I too prayed to Amma to help my son, in Her own way. The next day, my son told me that he was given fifteen days’ time…
All of the members in my family are educated. Only my son was not interested in studies. This made me worry. I would pray to Amma to help him improve in his studies. Five years have passed. He is doing B.A. now. It is indeed a wonder! We know very well that it is only Amma’s blessings, which made him reach the B.A. level. My nephew had been working abroad. He left the job and came back, for he was assured another job abroad. He did not get the job. He was worried. We all prayed to Amma to help…
