Nostalgia...down the memory lanes...
I am on my village road,
Striding on the path I used to adore,
My feet in present, my heart in both.
Amma narrated this story to me when she and Appa visited us in Germany in May 2004
This is a true story that happened very recently in Malamalamukku,Alathur
It was around 10 pm and dark.The autorickshaw driver was returning home after a hard day's duty.
At Malamalamukku turning, there was a lady waiting who waved the Auto to a halt. Though he was very tired the autodriver stopped & took her as a passenger,as a sign of respect to a woman standing alone in the dark.
As she sat in the Auto, the driver went into a sort of " trance " looking at the beauty of the lady. It seemed , he had never seen such a beautiful woman in his entire life.
As he drove the auto the lady wanted to get off near PARAKKATTU KAVU. She paid him money and got off there and the driver continued back to his house.
Next morning, as he was cleaning the auto, he saw a gold "Kankanam" on the rear seat. An honest man he was, he wanted to return the piece of jewellery to the lady. But, he did not know where she lived.
He decided to go to PARAKKATTU KAVU and enquire about her as he had dropped her there, the previous evening. The priest saw the gold bangle and recognised it as MA DEVI'S BANGLE !
It was Mother Godess who appeared before the Auto driver !
Seems, the auto driver has become an ardent devotee of MA BHUVANESHWARI, MOTHER OF ALL OF US and he is doing well in his job.
Total surrender & faith can work miracles and I suggest,we all keep our houses clean & tidy, as if it is a place of worship .Keep the front door open in the mornings for sometime,so that MA enters our home , each day !
With total faith & surrender, you can feel HER divine
presence near you , ALWAYS !
DEVI PARAKKADI ! SARANAM
