I woke up with a beautiuful dream of shirdi saibaba as which guided me to create websites for helping students learn various arts including cinematography. I never wanted to involve myself with film-making again so avoided it but then it was this dream as if i am shooting a movie made me realize i must work on websites to help students learn various arts .
I was going through the Tamil news paper Dinamalar and found its
“Lakshmi Narasimhar Jayanthi”
Vow its my Amma’s favorite God. Back in 2003 when i was into film-making, i used to offer a yellow flower and a ghee lamp in Shiva Vishnu temple in Chennai. This Lakshmi Narasimhar used to be behind the wall of temple . Once a old lady told me if you want to do something good, feed 1000 people ,, if you have no ability to feed 1000, feed 1000 ants. From that day i used to pack 3 covers with sugar and drop one cover some where in corner of temple. Once the priest was talking to himself ” who’s this dropping sugar everyday, ants are coming” . I got shocked and felt thank God he don’t know its me. hA HA
I always pray Lakshmi Narasimhar to bless my sister with a kind hearted husband and in 2004 when my sister got married i know its grace of Lakshmi Narashimhar.
Pooja for Lakshmi Narasimhar :
I did abishekam to Lord Ganesha , Dattatreya, Shirdi Saibaba, Shiv Ling, Saraswathi and yes our graceful Mahalakshmi . She really was vibrant when i did abishekam with honey. As the honey flowed over Mahalakshmi , Sai and Dattatreya i really felt blissful. Then i did abishekam with water and chanted “aadithya hrudayam’ – the lord surya mantra i love.
Then Amma asked me to recite below mantra she likes for 108 times. Its so beautiful which says Lakshmi Narasimhar is Mother, Father, Friend and savoir .When we say this mantra 108 times surely Lakshmi narasimhar comes immediately to us friends..Amma believes in this
“Maathaa Nrushimha , Pitha Nrushimha :
Pratha Narashimha , Shaga Narashimha :
Vidhya Narashimha , Dhravinam Narashimha :
Swaami Narashimha , Sagalam Narashimha :
Idho Narashimha, Pradho Narashimha:
Yadho Yadho Yaahi, Thatho Narashimha :
Narashimha Dhevaath paro nagasith
Dhasmaan Narasimha Saranam Prabadhye ! “
Amma has a diary where she wrote 1 to 108 and she asked me to tick one by one as i recited the mantra 108 times.
After reciting this mantra i has tears flowing down my eyes as i could feel the grace of Sat Datta and Lakshmi Narasimhar.
The sacred book “Guru charitra and Shree Paadha shee vallabha charitramrutam ” says the saint who lived in 13th century ‘Sri Narasimha Saraswati ” born in Narasobwadi and had samadhi in Ganagapur is a avatar of Lakshmi Narasimhar himself.
When there are people who argue that god never exists and the kaliyug gets more spoilt, God takes avatar as saint and this Lakshmi narasimhar is verily present in his avatar as saint ‘Sri Narasimha saraswati ” . I request you to read “Guru Charitra ‘ especially the tamil version available in Mylapore shirdi saibaba temple is excellent.
Then i ran to Amma’s room, took Guru charitra and read a beautiful song in praise of Narasimha Saraswati. As i recited, i felt tears in my eyes remembering how graceful the saints are on me and why they are taking care of me like a child in mothers lap.
Amma made panagam with lemon and sugar ..I offered it as Naivaidhya to all Gods. Amma asked me to keep it infront of Lakshmi Narasimhar and i did.
I wanted to express this immediately to all my Sai friends, so started writing this article
A request – Serve devotees , make them satisfied and you serve God :
A month back me and my parents went to Lakshmi narasimhar temple where they have policy of giving kumkum only to for devotees who do archana. We din’t know this and Amma asked for Kumkum. The priest harshly said ” Did you do archana, only for people who do archana, kumkum is given”
The priest don’t have to give the packet , he can give a bit of kumkum atleast when a devotee asks for it. I felt pained and felt priests can have rules as its their living but once in a while try to do good karma by satisfying devotees. Some may be rich and some poor and all deserves Lakshmi Narasimhar’s blessings. When God shows equality to all why does a priest who serves God didn’t realize this.
All who has true faith on Lakshmi Narasimhar are rich and all who whole heartedly remember Lakshmi Narasimhar are pure and they don’t have to belong to any so called “sacred” caste .
Let us all bow to Lakshmi Narasimha and be blessed with good health, peace and prosperity
