Amma's Full Moon (Pournami) Message - 29.07.2007
"Om Sarva Mangala Mangalye,
Shive Sarvatha Shaadhike,
Sharanye Triambake Gowri,
This Pournami is special. This Pournami is called Guru Pournami or Guru Poornima. In Hindu Dharma and in many other religions, only on this day many saints and priests have taken their Avatar. That is why we call this as Guru Pournami, the Pournami which brings the total blessings of Guru.
Amma's message on this special day is "Be happy". You may ask how is it possible to be happy amidst all our problems and difficulties. The answer is Amma is with you. For example if you ask some one why he/she has taken part in this Yagam; one will say for the prosperity of my business. Another one will say for the well being of his/her children. Some one will say for a good health. Or another will say so that I don't get more scolding from my wife. Every body has some reason or the other for taking part in a puja or taking part in a Yagam or conducting a Yagam.
Why Amma is doing all these pujas and Yagams? For whom? Amma does not have problems that you have. Amma is doing all these pujas and Yagams for everyone. The pujas, rituals and teachings starting from morning to night here are all for you. That is why Amma told you, Be happy; don't worry; Amma will take care of everything.
Everyone should have a Guru. That is a great blessing. Guru is the incarnation of God descending on to earth for the purpose of removing all sufferings of mankind and for giving happiness and wisdom. So, on accepting a Guru there is no necessity for searching for God. Having a Guru is powerful. It is like having an advocate. In the court of fate, a Guru is like an advocate in front of Navagraha, the judge.
The fate of Karma is the reason for all the sufferings in a man's life. The sins committed in the previous births follow him birth after birth through his sufferings. The power which can safeguard mankind from fate lies only with a Guru. If the fate is to suffer for 10 days, with the blessings of Guru it will be reduced to 3 days. That power lies only with a Guru. It is essential to have a Guru in everyone's life. So, on this auspicious day, accept Amma as your Guru and be happy.
Amma blesses that all the living beings in this universe are happy, peaceful and graceful.
