                              PERFECT HUMILITY

                              Humility is not considering oneself lower than others; it is an attitude of
                              noticing and appreciating the virtues in others and trying to imbibe them
                              oneself; it is negation of vainglorious pride, arrogance and the habit of
                              looking down upon fellow beings. In the state of perfect humility one

MANIFESTATION OF DIVINITY                             SRI KERALA VARMA




 In November 1950 I first met Divine Mother. At that time one day Mother was kind enough and bless
our house. Mother was received with loud chanting of Narayana Nama.As soon as She alighted from
the car sudden change came in Her. In the likeness of Gadadhara Vishnu She stood motionless for a
time by the side of the car. The chant of Narayana Nama began to fill the air and roll about in even
higher and higher pitch. Wave upon wave the thundering kirtan splashed the air and the atmosphere
was spiritually electrified.
   Slowly then moved the august figure of Mother in Samadhi and reaching the porch sat on the chair
kept for Her.She accepted the Service of washing Her feet with water.
    She then moved upstairs and walked into the shrine room as a person familiar with the house and
sat on the seat intended for Her. A welcome song in Malayalam was sung. She suddenly rose in
samadhi and Her movements were according to sentiments expressed in song. She again sat down and
after a time came to normal plane and talked to some of us nearby. As if suddenly remembering it She
took parched rice from Her lap and distributed us as Prasad.Nobody can say from where the prasad
sprang up. The shrine had three steps and it was covered. The inside will be nearly three and half feet
and 4and half at the center. No person of 5 feet can stand erect inside.
    Mother hurried into the shrine embraced the Krishna idol. How She could stand without Her head
slanting and touching the top is another dilemma unsolved. She danced and idol also moved. It
seemed that life came to idol by the touch of Mother. Needless to say how intense and suffused with
the sense of awe was the whole atmosphere. To describe the scene is beyond me. The divinity was
manifested there in a manner which it impossible to describe. She came down from the shrine and sat
in front of the shrine.
     The pleasant thoughts of those days are enough to elevate us, to rise above the material plane.
Mother left a deep impression in all of us. Divinity cannot manifest more impressively. (THE END)
