On 1st April, 2000, I was bitten by a snake. At first, I felt that I had stepped on a thorn. The second time, I happened to see the snake bite me. At that time… I did not know who gave me the courage. Saying, “Om Sakthi, Parasakthi,” loudly, I brushed the snake aside with the purse I had. The snake fell at a distance, but advanced towards me very angrily. I repeatedly said Amma’s name. After a while, the snake went back.
I was admitted to a hospital. I was in the I.C.U. The doctors said that, they wouldn’t be able to say anything for twenty four hours. I didn’t stop saying, “Om Sakthi, Parasakthi.” The next day, the doctors said that, my life was out of danger. My leg had become septic, because of the snake’s poison. Hence, one of the doctors said that, my leg would have to be amputated. I have full faith in Amma. It is unshakeable! Hence, that day, I told Sakthi Sarasamma, who was sitting near me, to read Amma’s 108 Potri fifty one times. She kept on saying the Potri. While she was reading the Potri, I could experience a change taking place inside my body. My whole body had become swollen and the pain was unbearable. While I was listening to the Potri, I felt that Amma was moving Her fingers affectionately,on my body, saying, “Daughter, I am here with you! Don’t be afraid. There is nothing wrong with you.”
The next day, when the doctor looked at the blood test report, he said, “What a wonder it is! Her blood is pure!” The doctor, who had said that I would lose my leg, was indeed very happy and he discharged me from the hospital in five days! My relatives had felt that, as I was bitten by a cobra, I would meet with death. The Mother at Mel Maruvathur not only saved my life, but gave me a rebirth. I thank Amma from the bottom of my heart and I shall remain grateful to Her till the end of my life.
