“Ambal sits on the Meru at 8 pm daily during Navarathri!”

Ambal the Beauty2

Periyava had asked Shri Joshi to make a Kuthu Vilakku (lamp) of gold and bring it to Him. For some reason Shri Joshi could not go to the Matam and instead sent it through another devotee Shri Ramanan.
Shri Ramanan submitted the lamp to Him when he went to have His Darshan. On seeing the lamp Periyava took it in His Hand and tells those who had assembled near Him:

“During all days of Navarathri, Ambal comes physically and sits exactly at 8 pm on the Meru in Kamakshi Amman Temple. So, take this lamp, light it and place it near the Meru! Since the Meru will be become hot due to the heat of the flame, prepare a ball of sandhanam (sandalwood paste) and place the lamp on top of it!”

What a thing He had said, the Absolute Truth! Stunning is it not! Shankara…

Today I was casually watching Shri Ramanan’s old interview where he narrates this timely Navarathri incident! Was blessed to run into him two months back at Pondy Bazar where Shivaraman Sir had dropped me so that I could meet with our Shri Mohan Ramiah!

Shri Ramanan recounts this from 19:12 to 21:12 in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CS2OqRye_eA.

  1. The picture is extremely beautiful. In fact it is a divine darshan, One can watch the Golden Lamp if one visits Kancheepuram. Shri Ramanan is really blessed devotee. Jaya Jaya Shankara, Hara Hara Shankara!. In Perungalathur also, there is a Kamakshi Amman Temple, which is well maintained.

  2. Thanks for the wonderful photo.i am overwhelmed whenever i see this picture of Ambal.

    This painting of Ambal is in Kamakshiamman temple, kanchi.

    i had tried a few angles and taken some photos and got similar images. Due to the painting’s location, more light on Her right side and glass in the frame, exposure is not uniform for a less skilled photographer like me.

    Would be grateful if some devotee with good photographic skills could post a properly exposed photo for the benefit of Her devotees.

    warm regds,

  3. Hariom…. one particular year I spent 10days of Navaratri in Kanchipuram, at Amma’s sannidhi…I also performed the 10day Navavaram pooja and during the evening pooja ,Gayatri Mandapam, where devotees are allowed to sit gets very very hot….also please note Amma’s eyes always sweep from one side to another…the Stanika Arachaka brothers Ramesh and Babu pointed this to me….. HER presence is ununmistakable…..you have to see and experience it to believe it….

  4. “மஹா மேருவில் இரவு எட்டு மணிக்கு அம்பாள் அமர்கிறாள்!”

    திரு. ஜோஷி என்பவரை ஒரு தங்கக் குத்துவிளக்கு செய்துகொண்டுவருமாறு ஸ்ரீ பெரியவா சொன்னார். அதேபோல, குத்துவிளக்கைத் தயார் செய்து, ஒரு சில காரணங்களால் நேரில் தன்னால் சமர்ப்பிக்க இயலாததால், திரு. ஜோஷி அதை ஸ்ரீ ரமணன் என்பவர் மூலம் கொடுத்தனுப்பினார்.
    அதைத் தன் திருக்கரங்களால் எடுத்துக்கொண்டு, பின்வரும் ரஹஸ்யத்தை ஸ்ரீ பெரியவா அருளினார்.

    “நவராத்ரியின் எல்லாத் தினங்களிலும் அம்பாள் நேரில் வந்து சரியாக இரவு எட்டு மணிக்கு காமாக்ஷி அம்மன் கோவிலில் இருக்கும் மேருவில் வந்தமர்கிறாள்! இந்த விளக்கை எடுத்துக்கொண்டுபோய், மேருவின் அருகில் ஏற்றி வை. விளக்கின் ஜ்வாலையில் மேரு சூடாகிவிடும் என்பதால், ஒரு சந்தன உருண்டையின் மீது இந்த விளக்கை ஏற்றி வை”

    என்னவொரு அரிய ரஹஸ்யம்! ஸ்ரீ ரமணன் அவர்களே இந்தத் தகவலை ஒரு ஒளிப்பேழையில் சொல்லி ஆனந்தித்திருக்கிறார்.

  5. Those who are unable to visit Kanchi to have the Darshan of Kamakshi Amman
    they can a light lamp at home in front of her decorated picture and offer her
    Neivadhyam daily evening without fail during Navaratri period and distribute to
    the female children.

    Sri Kanchi MahaSwamy is Avatara purusha of Sri Kanchi Kamashi Amma

  8. Very beautiful picture of Ambal. Have a great desire to visit mother during Navaratri. But bound by workload. Let’s see if she calls me and gives me a darshan. Feeling very eager to visit Kanchipuram to have Ambal’s and Periyava’s darshan.

    And what a great tip let out by our sadhguru.

    thanks for posting this.

  10. very good picture! thanks for sharing.

  11. Radhe Krishna. Om Sri Kamakshi Ambal Porpathangalukku adiyenin ananthakoti namaskarangal. Om Sri Kamakshi Ambal Namo Namaha. Hara Hara Sankara, Jaya Jaya Sankara.

  12. Radhe Krishna. Om Sri Kamakshi Ambal Namo Namaha. Hara Hara Sankara, Jaya Jaya Sankara.

  13. Extremely beautiful picture of Kaamakshi Ambal! Divive Dharshan. The Sri Chakram in front of Her is not seen in this picture. Any photograph available of the Golden Lamp? Very nice incidence. Another oppotunity to listen to exalted Devotees like Sri. RamaNan! Jaya Jaya Shankara, Hara Hara Shankara!
