Biography: Adolescent Days

Sri Kalki Peedum Society / ஸ்ரீ கல்கி பீடும் சங்கம்

Mano began his first job as a helper in a car workshop since he was too young for other better jobs. Whatever he earned was given to his mother. When he was about sixteen years old, he worked in a petrol station in Singapore. He walked across the causeway everyday to work so as to save transport money.

During free times, he went to cinemas, cultural shows and participated in music and drama events. He was an ardent fan of M G Ramachandran (MGR). Mano always praises MGR’s services towards the society, the good advices he had given and his numerous works of charity.

As days passed by, though he was enjoying his activities, he began to feel that his life was meant for more meaningful purpose. He felt irritated by unknown feelings that finally appear to be meaningless. The thoughts of Mother Kali began to strike his mind often. For no reason, he felt a gravitational pull towards her. Not knowing what to do or whom to seek for guidance, he bought a small photo of Mother Kali. He placed it in his bedroom and began to pray.

He slept on a plank and practiced ‘fasting’ to seek answers to many questions. Something guided him from within and he felt that whatever ways he conducted his prayers, it was right, as he felt better from time to time. "One quenches his thirst by drinking water and to quench the thirst of the soul, one must recite the name of God”. Reciting mother Kali’s name and meditating upon her, brought much inner peace and answers to his questions.

Mother Kali responded soon to Mano. His staunch devotion, love and attachment brought the universal Mother close to him. Most of the nights, the family members could hear the sound of chimes. They could feel some invisible movement in the house especially in Mano’s room. But no one dared to find out about it. A few months lapsed; mother Kali began to visit him in person. Most of the time, she will go there as an old woman.

Once Mdm Yasotha woke up very early in the morning to use the ladies. On hurrying into the kitchen, she glanced into Mano’s room. She was shocked to see an old woman sitting near Mano with his head placed on her lap. But when she returned from the toilet, she didn’t see the old woman again. Soon this began to happen very frequently. One night, Mano’s brother Ravi heard someone knocking the main door.

He saw everyone was sleeping so he got up from bed and opened the door. He saw his grandmother standing there, she entered the house and went directly to Mano’s room. Without a word, Ravi closed the door and went back to bed again. Suddenly, he remembered that this grandmother had passed away a few years ago. The next day he was down with high fever.

He told his mother about that incident. Mdm Yasotha immediately understood that she must be mother Kali. On another day, Mdm Yasotha saw many beautiful butterflies flying around Mano while he was asleep. It flew away on her presence. Many weird incidents began to happen and soon it became a normal matter. He began to involve in his own prayers that he used to do at nine years old. He was then working in the day and in the evening he would be praying. He spent less time with friends.

Soon he was called up to serve his National Service in Singapore. He packed his clothes and came to stay with his grandmother. After enlisting himself, he waited to be called up for training. To pass his time, Mano went to a nearby temple in the evenings. He prayed and participated in the Bhajans (temple choir) group. He helped to clean the temple after prayers before he went back home. Mano’s grandmother became angry on seeing him coming home late.

One night, she confronted Mano and scolded him by saying things, which he never did. Mano felt hurt by her wrongful accusations. He left the house immediately and went back to the temple to spend the night there. He went to Kali mother’s sanctum and complained to her about his grandmothers’ accusations. He felt better after releasing his anger to her and then he lied down on the floor and slept.

At the same moment, Mano’s grandma was also sleeping soundly at home. Suddenly, someone pushed her off the bed. She panicked and looked around to see who was the culprit. She was shocked to see Mother Kali standing in front of her. Her heart trembled on seeing her fierce form.

Mother Kali warned her, ‘if you ever accuse my son Mano again I will punish you severely’ and disappeared. She fell sick and couldn’t get up from bed. Her daughter went to fetch Mano home from the temple. Mano did not know anything till his grandma told him about it. He was surprised and was touched by Mother Kali’s concern on him. Though, he heard many incidents from his family members about mother Kali’s visits, he had not see her in person yet. On hearing this incident from his grandma, he felt reassured that there was some sacred relation with Mother Kali. His silence broke when his grandma began to advise him to pray to Lord Krishna, their family god instead of Mother Kali.

She told a few incidents about the prayers answered by her devotion. Mano intervened suddenly and told her, ‘Yes, I know that you prayed to Lord Krishna for your 3rd child. He appeared in your dreams as a shepherd boy and blessed you. You prayed to him that if the 3rd child was a boy, you would name him Krishna and if it was a girl you would name her Krishnammal. Isn’t it? “How did you know this? I didn’t tell this to your grandfather and your mother wasn’t born too; who told you my secret?” “Well grandmother, don’t ask me how? Somehow I know it.” His grandma was completely taken aback by his words and she understood that Mano is not an ordinary person. Mano gave a glass of water to his grandma after reciting Mother Kali’s name in it. His grandma got better the next day. (The ‘grandma’ mentioned here is his great grandma. His mother’s mother passed away at a very young age after delivering his mother Yasotha).

Mano’s urge on seeing Mother Kali increased and the incidents that occurred aroused his feelings more. He took her as his personal Guru. He received many answers and blessings in his dreams. A few months passed, and he was called up for army in camp training. He packed his clothes and bid farewell to his relatives.
