My Mother Anandamayee
My Mother Anandamayee
Description
Preface

In this holy land of ours people of outstanding stature manifest themselves in all ages and times to revive spiritualism. In our age such an outstanding manifestation is Shree Shree Ma Ananandamayee. She was a miracle for two reasons for one She revealed Herself in the form of a Woman—a typical housewife hidden behind the veil. Secondly behind Her revealation in public was not prompted by any conscious effort in the form of any kind of penance. The whole thing was a spontaneous outburst proclaiming Her coming like a tempest that carries everything in its wake. She is the embodiment of the declaration made in Devi Sukta:

At the vital contact of that flow lives of many have been revived into a second birth. One of them is the writer of “My Mother Anandamayee”—Brahamacharini Vishuddha. Everything about her, right from the naming up to moulding of her life is the doing of the Mother.

The sole aim of Ma Anandamayee was to motivate the lives of human being Godwardly. Specially due to Her divine vision She evoked the spirit of Gouri within a woman. “Yatra nari tatra Gouri”. Wherever there is a woman, there is Gouri’. With the same goal in view, Gurupriyadidi, who’ served Mother whole heartedly and was inseparable associate in Her divine Leela, founded a Kanyapeeth at holy Varanasi Dham and Vishuddha having her lodging in that Kanyapeeth from her infancy was initiated into the means of elevating her life to a divine existence.

As a resident of the kanyapeeth she had the rare opportunity of direct participation in diverse divine modes (Leelas) of Shree Shree Ma. Here she has recorded them with the highest pitch of commitment and sincerity. While reading this book those who were acquainted with the Mother would be gratified by having once more a direct view of Her in an incarnate form. They would be able to realise in what diverse ways the Mother inspired those who came directly under Her aegis—sometimes by Her indulgent affection and sometimes influencing them by the regulating power of Her strict discipline—to mould their lives into ideal form. Vishuddha was able to have the rare fortune of serving the divinity embodied Universal Mother by bathing Her, cooking food for Her consumption, massaging Her feet and lying down near those very feet. In this way she was able to purify and gratify herself.

Many would be able to know from this book the detailed account of the Savitri MahaYajna performed by the kheyal of Ma at Varanasi. Besides many miraculous devine incidents have been recorded in it. Shree Shree Ma laughed, played with kumaries like Vishuddha, Ma was dressed as they liked to dress Her and sometimes even wept resistlessly on detecting some lapses in them. She prostrating Herself at their feet crying effusively with eyes moistened with tears was saying—”Forgive me, forgive me thou Goddess in the Kumari form.

Finding Her bathed with tears repeating the same words in a state of trance, Gurupriyadi struck dumb with surprise said, “Ma, why are you asking for forgiveness? It is we, who are at fault at every step.” Ma replied, “Didi, the faults committed by those who are called upon to gather around this body are no less associated with this body.”

In this way the Mother identified Herself with all. As we realise it we should be alert and attempt t6 do no wrong lest it should go down to Her and bring tears to Her eyes. The responsibility of keeping the Mother free from tears rest with Her children.

We can get these wonderful instructions from these anecdotes of Vishuddha. I hope that all would read this book and be gratified by deriving inspirations towards the life divine. I for one am gratified and these few lines are just to disclose this, for I cannot arrogate myself to the writing of an introduction as such. Only a teacher, striver or a fellow student of Vishuddha, her contemporary at Kanyapeeth is entitled to this task.
