SRI PADMAVATHY AMMA

She is the beginning of everything
Yet She is beginning less
She is the cause of everything
Yet She is causeless
She is light and non-light too
She is the divinely beautiful and
Supremely blissful The mother of all,
She is the transcendent Samadhi
The best of minds, she is the most auspicious
She breathed consciousness into me
And abides in my heart.

--- Thirumanthiram -


A volunteer : A few years ago I was the only one giving Deekshas in my town. Now, there are many. Moreover, experiencing the power of Amma and Bhagavan through the Deekshas, people are automatically coming forward to serve. I don't think I have much to do. I intend to retire.

AMMA : Indeed, without any of you the Divine would still accomplish its mission. Amma and Bhagavan, who are here to transform the world, would complete their work anyway. All it needs to transform your town in a single day is one grand miracle. All the same, Amma Bhagavan need each of you and your services to humanity.

In this phase of cosmic evolution it has been pre-ordained that you should fulfill your individual part this way. There are thousands whose lives need to be affected by you. It is my will that this work should happen through you. No matter how many may emerge, fulfill your part yourself.

............................................................................................................................

Speaking on the nature of the Divine Amma said,

"The Divine is like the body and humans the cells. Whenever these cells turn cancerous, the body desperately tries to heal itself. Body is infinitely more powerful than any individual cell. But the individual cell too has power, which it acquires from the body. It uses this power to either cooperate or defy the body. So is it with man and God. Man too being powerful, is defying the divine.

It is not possible to transform the world without his co-operation. However, the present state of affairs cannot go on for long. Ultimately it is the will of the Divine that will come to pass."

Disciple : Amma, it is painful to see the way certain people make use of the Movement for their personal gains. I fear it will spoil our reputation amidst devotees.


AMMA : It is not the fault of the river that somebody's excrement floats on it. This work does not belong to any one person or a group of people. If today you witness these phenomenal miracles and enlightened states of consciousness in the lives of scores of devotees, what must
be the power and penance that has gone into it ? Leave along Amma Bhagavan; thousands of devotees, their hard work And prayers have all made the movement into what it is. Hence any
one person's self-centeredness or greed cannot hurt it. This phenomenon is divinely destined.

............................................................................................................................

Disciple : Amma, would you please give the devotees a message on the eve of Gratitude day.

AMMA : Tell them that there is always a special place in my heart for those who are dedicated to the cause of liberation of humanity. Remember your thoughts are known to you alone. Your words are know to you and the listener, which nonetheless are forgotten with the passage of
time. While the service (seva) you render alone shall stay for eternity. It will benefit all life.

ON SEVA

The highest of states is the state of seva. The spirit of seva is inbuilt into every
insight, realization, mystical experience and mukti. It is this spirit that drives you to share with the world what has been given to you.

----- Sri Amma -----

Contemplation on any one conversation or experience a day would result in an awakening to yourself. These words would act as mirrors reflecting your true nature leading you to insights into your relationships, life and God. If you are courting enlightenment, chewing over these conversations would carry you a long way.

Beware, any statement of Sri Amma can catch you unawares and lead to an explosion in consciousness. They could also give you the fruit they gave to the listeners when they heard them from Amma in person. Remember, each of These words has the potential to act as a Deeksha.

Contemplative Questions

Here is a set of questions that would provoke you and put you through some soul searching. They are not about religion nor about ethics. They are merely about you.

They are not meant to serve as solutions nor are they meant to lead you anywhere. These questions are meant to serve as tools to discovering yourself.

1) Do you perceive the Presence of a benevolent force guiding, protecting and shaping your life? What name do you give that Presence? When did you best feel this Presence?

2) What is your opinion of God? Is your opinion drawn from religion, books, parents and or your personal experience of life?

3) Do you pray? Do they get answered? How often?

4) Do you think it is possible to relate to the Divine? What relationship would you opt?

5) Here is a story for you - Two fierce enemies once did a penance to placate god and receive boons vying with each other. God appeared to the first man and asked what he wanted. He said "give me twice of whatever you give my enemy". Then God appeared to the second one. Even before God could say anything he asked, "God, would you please tell me what my enemy asked for? On knowing his prayer request, he said, "then God, blind me in one eye."
Now what would you wish for yourself, your best friend and your worst enemy if God gave you a chance?

6) Have you ever experienced a coincidence or chance that seems to have involved so many people and factors that you can't stop wondering if a mastermind was behind this operation? If yes, do you savour the experience often and have you shared it with someone close to you?
