#Belief_Faith_God_and_Me this is a subject , which to me is very personal and i do not dwell or share it with others; to me it is sacrosanct and it is not meant for a debate and/or a discussion; however a damn good tweet by @chittukuruvi4 got me thinking and hence this; this is
2. not going to be a long one and neither is it about religious practices as prescribed; i have always been a person who goes by what my heart says rather than the peanut brain of mine; my great grand parents/my grandparents and my parents had belief/faith and above all practised
3. what is said in our puranaas/ithihaasas; their belief and faith was impeccable, but they were also pragmatic - they have never imposed themselves on any of their siblings; my experience i have noticed - whether it be my grand uncles/aunts, my own aunts/uncles and my cousins..
4. it sort of came as a habit to follow their footsteps. my association with sages began very early in life - Sankara Mutt was just two buildings away from great grandparents home - in holidays - whether #MahaPeriava was there are not i spent time in the mutt and as a child i
5. had a lot of privileges there - that is where i learnt to love cows[though my great grandparents had them at home too], - my time there was more of a learning ground and when #MP was there i used to sit in the front row , essentially to be noticed that he sees me and prasadam
6. from his hands was my delight; it was much later in life that i understood even a large crowd, he could see who were there and whom he should see that day; this has been my experience. as i grew and began to read i became fond of #Jiddu, #Ramana and #ShridiSai. i must thank
7. #MP for initiating me to #Ramana - let me digress. one such afternoon when i was in the cowshed he sent for my mother and mothers are like cops - they believe the worst - she assumed that i had been upto mischief and even #MP felt he should highlight it to the parent - alas
8. when she came in and i was also brought before him - he simply tod her "take him to Kamakshi Mami and initiate his japams - this was out of the blue - for her she was not aware who was the mami, how can she be located etc.,; it was my great grandmother who gave her the info-
9. in those days - to be an outspoken woman was something rarely heard of - with the blessings of Periava she was running a small home for destitute women and children - and to cut the long story short i was initiated and both the japams are still being done and regularly poorna
10. aakurthi also being done; the mutt moved to kanchi and we moved to coimbatore and then to madras then to ooty and i was growing up - 2 things i never stopped was my japam and sandhya vandhana. between my high school and college i had a gap we did the AIHS anr our exams were
11. were in December and the colleges only in June. taking permission from my parents i went to meet MP who was then in Ilayathaankudi. i was there for a day and he instructed me to spend time in Ramana Ashram - there was no necessity for queries - i spent the most blissful time
12. of my life - the next three days and i think meditation came to me there - it was automatic and i even now wonder - but then as they say 'don't analyze, utilize' the adage fits me even today. time was flying and my marriage itself was a miracle and though the decisions seemed
13. haste, it was when i went with my parents i understood that in the game called life - there is always your guru who is much ahead of you - it was my mother who was sceptical - because she hailed from one helluva rich family the odds of gossip had already began - he assured
14. that her sambandhi[my in laws]will come to terms by lessons they will learn; at that point i did not comprehend,but as life moved i understood and my FIL became a damn good friend [it was he who initiated me to Lord Ayyappa] . when i got the opportunity to go abroad i was
worried - Periava was sceptical about that - however i was not willing to leave without his blessings and it came in the form of Dr.Badrinath and i went and my first major test of life was in 1999 - when i lost someone very close to me and i was broken - it was then i realised -
16. #BELIEF_FAITH_GOD_and_ME were not me but the caring hands of the #Guru and i was blessed with 3 of them - all it requires is a heart like #ஸ்படிகம் - the rest will follow- i learnt one thing and i still strongly believe and practice it -
