Secrets behind Sri Murthi (Photo of Amma Bhagavan)

Q - When I see Srimurthi, something attracts me. What is the
secret behind this Bhagwan ?

: I am in the Srimurthi. You must know that I am alive
in the Srimurthi. It is not a mere picture. Sometimes blood can
come out of Srimurthi, in case you are saved somewhere. It is a
living picture. It has life. There are Srimurthis which weep and
some even laugh. Two Bhagwan could actually talk also. They
have distincted personalities having lived with you. His Bhagwan
would acquire a different personality and your Bhagwan would
acquire a differrent personality. And they would be talking also.
Sometimes you can tune into what they are talking. It is a living
thing. That is why you feel the presence so much. Of course some
Srimurthis could be deserted also. They would be lifeless, if not
worshipped or regarded.

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?
