ETERNELLE PRESENCE D'AMMA

ANASUYA DEVI

  

                               JAYA HO MATHA SRI ANASUYA

                               RAJARAJESWARI SRI PARATPARI

 

      C'était en 1990 ,qu'en lisant un ouvrage de Muzz MURRAY consacré aux divers ashrams de l'INDE ,que mes yeux furent attirés par SRI VISWAJANANEE PARISHAT avec une photo d'AMMA...

De suite j'ai écrit à l'ashram de JILLELLAMUDI  ,et c'est notre frére Gopala RAO ,alors secrétaire de l'ashram ,qui m'a de suite répondu ,en m'envoyant la biographie d'AMMA , son enseignement et deux cassettes de bhajans chantés merveilleusement par les dévots de l'ashram...

  De suite , j'ai écouté les cassettes de bhajans ....et aussitôt s'est répendu dans la piece un divin parfum...et pourtant aucun encens ne brûlait,et aucun n'avait étè allumé...

   C'était le premier signe de la présence d'AMMA ,depuis Elle a occupé une place importante dans ma vie et une place lumineuse au milieu de l'autel de mon temple...

    En mai 1992 ,je célébrais l'anniversaire (JAYANTHI ) d'AMMA dans mon temple...la photo d'AMMA était décorée de fleurs ,de roses...durant l'ARATHI ,j'ai allumé le camphre et fait des cercles devant sa photo...puis j'ai complétement éteint le camphre  ; et soudain ,seul , il s'est rallumé  avec une encore plus haute et grande flamme ,comme si AMMA me disait " oui je suis là ,je suis ici et partout..."

  C'était le deuxiéme signe d'Amour de la Mére Divine ,et de son éternelle présence...

    Finalement  ,par la grâce d' AMMA ,en janvier 2003 , 13 ans aprés  que j'ai rencontré spirituellement AMMA ,je suis venu pour la premiére fois en INDE ...Aprés une visite à l'ashram SRI POORNANANDA de SRI SAILAM ,je me suis rendu à JILLELLAMUDI à la maison de tous ,à la maison de ma Mére,comme un enfant qui retourne à sa maison...

  Partout dans l'ashram on sent Sa divine présence vivante ,presque 20 ans aprés son Mahasamadhi...La MERE DIVINE  est toujours là comme une mére prenant soin de ses enfants...

  Durant mon trop court séjour à JILLELLAMUDI , j'ai demandé un signe de Sa presence éternelle...Et un matin ,j'étais assis devant sa statue dans le temple lors de la puja du matin...Puis un homme est arrivé et a demandé d'où nous venions...Aprés lui avoir répondu ,il a ajouté :" c'est par la grâce d'AMMA que vous êtes venus et arrivés jusqu'ici...vous êtes ici dans la demeure d'AMMA ,parceque Elle a voulu que vous veniez ;si Elle n'avait pas voulu que vous soyez ici ,vous ne seriez jamais arrivés...." !

    En voyant cet homme habillé en blanc ,j'ai de suite senti un signe d'AMMA...j'étais sûr que je le connaissais déjà depuis trés longtemps,et lui aussi a eu cette impression...en effet ,lui aussi me connaissais par mon nom spirituel : SONAGIRI ( un des noms sacrés d'ARUNACHALA ,qui m'a étè donné ,il y a 20 ans par le petit neveu de BHAGAVAN RAMANA MAHARSHI )

 Ce fût vraiment étrange de chacun bien nous connaître ,sans s'être jamais rencontrés...comme si nous nous connaissions depuis toujours....

    Pour moi c'était un signe évident de la présence infinie et éternelle d'AMMA...Elle avait répondu à mon appel ,c'est certain...!

  En venant à JILLELLAMUDI  ,j'ai retrouvé ma maison ,j'ai retrouvé ma MERE...Et j'ai vraiment ressenti sa présence et son AMOUR infini...Et j'espére revenir prés d'ELLE autant de fois qu'Elle le voudra...! 

                                           

                                          

                              ETERNAL PRESENCE OF DIVINE

                                  MOTHER

 

                         ( Jean-Pierre Melelli , is known to many of us as Sonagiri , a devotee from France . We publish here a letter he wrote to Usha Rao , for the benefit of readers of “ Mother of All “, a narration of three instances of his experiences relating to Divine Mother ) – Editor

 

          “ It is always with a great happiness that I read the Quaterly magazine “ Mother of All “ and this year , in January 2003 , by the grace of Amma Anasuya Devi , I had the joy of staying for two days near my Divine Mother in Jillellamudi . I arrived there from Sri Poornananda Ashram in Srisailam , after a long pilgrimage in South India covering Ramana Ashram , Anandashram , Nityananda Ashram and Prashanti Nilayam in Puttaparthi … “

                JAYA HO MATA SRI ANASUYA

                RAJARAJESWARI SRI PARATPARI

 

 

               My beloved brothers and sisters in Amma , I should like to tell you all , through the pages of the quaterly Magazine “ Mother of All “ three lovely stories relating to the eternal presence of Divine Mother .

           In the year 1990 , while reading a book  of Muzz Murray , I think , on the various Ashrams of India , my eyes were attracted to a photograph of Amma and a related text on Sri Viswajananee Parishat. Immediately , I wrote a letter to the ashram in Jillellamudi . Our brother Gopala Rao answered my letter and sent two audio cassettes of bhajans ( one cassette sung by Divine Mother Anasuya )

             Immediately , I listened to the Divine voice of Amma … As soon as I listened to the voice of Divine Mother singing a bhajan , I smelt in the room around me , a divine fragrance , as if a special incense was lighted !!!

          Since Amma occupies a prominent place in my life and heart , She has obviously a very pre-eminent place in my Meditation room as well .

 

              In May 1992 , I celebrated Amma’s Jayanthi , in my Temple ( Meditation room ) , placing flowers at Amma’s photograph , lighting incense and later camphor . During Arathi , I lighted camphor in front of Her picture , then put out the flame completely . Suddenly the camphor lighted on its own again with a very beautiful and high flame as if Amma Anasuya telling me “ yes , I am here and everywhere ! “ It is the second loving sign of Divine Mother’s presence .

 

            Finally , 13 years after I met my Mother in vision filling my heart , I came to India with friends , for the first time , by Her Grace ! Of course arriving from Sri Poornananda Swamiji’s Ashram in Srisailam , I went to the house of my Mother in Jillellamudi … like a child returning to its house !

              Everywhere in the Ashram , I felt the living presence of Mother … Amma was there , almost twenty years after Her Mahasamadhi . Divine Mother is always everywhere like a mother taking care of her children !!!

               During my stay in Jillellamudi ( alas too short ! ) I asked within myself for an external sign of Amma’s presence . So , in the morning on one of the days of my stay , I was sitting in front of Amma’s idol in the Temple during the morning puja . Then a man who arrived there enquired us as to which country we came from and said “ it is by the Grace of Amma that you are here in Jillellamudi . You are not at Amma’s abode because Amma wanted it . If Amma did not wish so you would not be here ! “

             Seeing this man , I felt a sign of Amma , because when I saw him I somehow was sure that I knew him since several years in the past , though I saw him for the first time. It appears he also felt as if he knew me since quite a long time , the name of Sonagiri ( the holy name of Arunachala given to me 20 years ago by the nephew of Ramana Maharshi , my spiritual Father ) .

      It was strange that we knew each other though we never met earlier directly . This I felt was a sign of Divine Mother !

 

                    I treasure this pilgrimage to the Abode of Divine Mother in Jillellamudi  very warmly and wholeheartedly . Dear brothers and sisters at the Lotus Feet of Amma in Jillellamudi , I thank you all very very much and all those in the service of Amma. I hope to come  again to Jillellamudi by Amma’s Grace !

 

                    JAYA HO MATA SRI ANASUYA

                    RAJARAJESWARI SREE PARATPARI !!!

*****************************************

 

                But today Christmas 2005 , I can say that this Divine story do not finish in 2003 …

·       First I came again in the Amma’s Abode in the very loving village of Jillellamudi , in January 2005 , and I found again the same presence of Jillellamudi Amma…

 

·       In the summer 2005 , surfing on internet about the Gurus of BHARAT , my eyes were attracted by the loving smile and the divine eyes of a great Mother , as I was attracted 15 years before by Amma Anasuya Devi in the book of Muzz Murray .

 

         It is the same energy , the same light , and now , today I can say that is AMMA  ANASUYA DEVI and the Goddess RAJARAJESWARI that guide me , that guide my soul  to my true MOTHER AMMA YOGANANDAMAYI…

        Thank you with all my heart Divine JILLELLAMUDI AMMA , thank you RAJARAJESWARI  for this divine path!
