"Aum Shri Jai Matha."
"Aum Shri Guru Deva."
"To accomplish things in life, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe." ... And I have total belief and faith in my Parama Pujya Guruji!
Before I go into the topic, with reverence and dedication to my Parama Pujya Guruji, I would like to write the few verses from the "Devi Sthuti" and "Devi Mahatmyam" that still linger in my mind just as they were chanted by Pujya Guruji on 17 April, 2009. This was the day that I had the divine privilege of meeting Pujya Guruji in the Bangalore Ashram for the first time. Pujya Guruji rendered the following shlokas a couple of times during my little over an hour of being in His Divine company and indeed, I consider these as Grace and Blessings from Pujya Guruji to me and my family...powerful verses in praise of the Divine Mother, which shower Her Grace and Blessings on one and all.
"Yaa Devi Sevya Mannanamm janaanamahilamayan Aapakarokshi Kripaya Namasthasyai Namo Namaha"
"Smirtha Martharpiyaa nirnaMaadhivyaadi Vinasini Sarva Sambath Pradhaatricha Namasthasye Namo Namaha."
"Sarva Mangala Mangalye Sive sarvartha saadhike Saranye Thriyammbike Devi Narayani Namosthuthe."
"Srishtisthithi Vinashaanaam shakthibhoothe sanatani Gunashraye Gunamaye, Narayani Namosthuthe."
"Saranagatha Dinarta Paritrana Parayane Sarvasyarsarthi Hare Devi Narayani Namosthuthe."
There is a good old saying - "All that begins well continues well and ends well."
This is what has happened in my life. I shall fail in my duty if I don't refer the names of the people who made it happen - Dr.Shri Mahadevanji in Malaysia, Shri R.N. Sundareshji and Shri Chethanji in Bangalore, India. These "Trimoortis" paved way for me to meet Pujya Guruji and thereafter only, experiences of divinity and miracles started entering my life. One has got to believe that our Pujya Guruji is an incarnation of the Divine Mother with limitless Grace, Blessings, Benevolence and concern, and keeps pouring forth all these to His devotees in abundance even when we don't ask for them. Pujya Guruji knows the right time to do the right things for His devotees. One has to have patience and perseverance coupled with devotion and dedication towards Pujya Guruji in abundance.
There are so many miracles that I experienced within this short span of time of my assciation with Pujya Guruji, that I cannot narrate them all. One such experience is the recovery of my wife, Vijayalakshmi, who was in the ICU for two weeks in a Chennai Hospital in a very critical stage. It is Pujya Guruji who has taken care of everything and brought her back home safe and sound, as all my friends are aware of. I shall not be going into its details at the moment.
Now let me come to a very recent episode...
"Udyoga Prapthi Puja" - the ritual performed to the Divine Mother Shri Nimishamba Devi to obtain a good job quickly - and its resultant miraculous power...
It was on 30th June, 2009. My son had phoned up from Hong Kong and informed me that he had resigned from his employment and planned to return to Chennai by the first week of July, 2009 with his wife. She had also resigned from her job. He did not have an alternative employment opportunity in hand in India to take up on his return. The immediate thought that came into my mind was Pujya Guruji, who is always ready to come to help in His own way, and hence I was not at all disturbed mentally. My wife, after visiting the Nimishananda Ashram website, found a ritual called "UDYOGA PRAPTHI PUJA" performed to the Divine Mother, and we both swung into action and called up Shri Chethanji, who immediately guided us as to how to go about getting the puja performed. He asked us to get in touch with Ashwiniji at the Bangalore Ashram. With the combined help and efforts by Shri Sundareshji, Chethanji and Ashwiniji, the date to commence the puja was arranged. Thereafter, my wife and I, all said and done, came to the conclusion that we had placed our problem at the Divine & Lotus Feet of Pujya Guruji. We were convinced that it would work, and that a fruitful and good result would come out once the "Udyoga Prapthi Puja" was performed. I was getting feedback from Ashwiniji on the progress of the puja.
Ashwiniji called up one morning and told me that the Udyoga Prapthi Puja in the name of my son had been performed and the Prasadam would be sent by courier. She took down my Chennai address and we received the Prasadam with the Grace & Blessings of the Divine Mother and Pujya Guruji.
Meanwhile, my son and daughter-in-law arrived on 9th July, 2009, and my son started his endeavours to find a suitable job. He got offers from good companies located in Bangalore, Trichy, Hyderabad and many other places, and was meeting people for interviews. It was finally sometime during the middle of August 2009 that he finalised a very good job with HCL Technologies at Bangalore...wow, what a miracle! Pujya Guruji and the Divine Mother have taken them (my son and daughter-in-law) so much closer to them at Bangalore. He has joined HCL Technologies on 27th August, 2009, and both of them are now in Bangalore. They will be moving into their own apartment in Bannerghatta Road, Near Apollo Hospital and IIM. All these events took place undoubtedly due to the Divine Grace & Blessings of the Divine Mother through Pujya Guruji - and I have my firm conviction and belief in this.
I am a believer of - "Do things rightfully, gracefully, confidently and articulately, with dedication and devotion to Pujya Guruji to end up successfully. This will gratify many and astonish the rest."
"Aum Namo Nimishambayei Namaha."
"Aum Namo Nimishanandaya Namaha."
"Silent and Listen are both spelt with same letters." And so, I listen to my Pujya Guruji in silence.
I thank one and all in the Bangalore Ashram, Malaysian Ashram and, of course, Shri Srinivasanji from Canada for their subtle and fine thoughts and divine feelings towards me and my family.
