proud of you gaurango

i met Gaurango Banergi at Amrita University campus in coimbatore. he invited me to see his poster presentation of his mba projet. gaurango explained abt his project which a beautiful combination of marketing, media, analytics, connecting the need of a healthy society, trending etc. i felt proud abt him growing in to an educated, matured, sensible good citizen … the same gaurango i met in late 1998 when he was at amrita vidyalayam, kodungallur.. may amma’s blessings be there with you to achieve unimaginable heights and success in your life.


posted both pics. gaurango is biting his finger nails in the pic below. (even today he does so)


inner coolness

13- 14 jan 2009, Bharata Yatra 2009, Kodungallur

on the 12th  evening amma arrived at amrita vidyalayam, kodungullar. amma stayed there.  the ashram is about one kilometer away.

i saw an old man, who was supposed to be at amrita university for an ugc inspection – but was here. i asked him why he was here.”  “this is the place amma initiated me to a mantra, and the lalita sahasranama. how can i forget?” this is the bond the old timers have with kodungullur. remember, in those days, the brahmasthanam festival was for 9 days, with 5 archanas of 1000 names of devi chanted 5 times daily + bhajans and satsangs. so many old people were greeting me. for many, being here with amma, is like arriving at the ‘taravadu’ – like coming home to the family house (like the great grand parents house where the whole family, all generations come together). its nice.

a family arrived form germany, joined the amma group here. it was -18 degrees in germany, here it is 35 degrees. hoowowow….!! a difference of 50 degrees in a day!!! they dont know whether to sit, or stand or to pour water on their heads…  but love for amma makes it cool.

in fact the scriptures talks about “antha: sheetalima” – inner coolness that a sadhak experiences as he progress in sadhana. that is the measurement of ones progress. when we uncover our amma/guru inside our hearts we will experience that coolness for sure.
