Sri Sakthi Amma was born on the 3rd of January 1976, to Shri. Nanda Gopal and Smt. Jyothiamma. It was evident from birth that this baby was divine and very special. A distinct, divine ray of light (Namam) on the baby’s forehead was vividly visible, along with symbols of Chakra (Wheel) and Sanku (Conch) on either side of the chest. Through this, the divine connection was established and people recognized the child as very special. From a very early age, the child exhibited great interest in spiritual life. The child demonstrated profound interest only in spiritual life, participated blissfully in Pujas/Bhajans (religious ceremonies) and insisted on visiting places of worship on a daily basis. On many occasions, the child would be absent from school and would be found in temples or at other places where religious activities were being conducted.
On an auspicious day, the 16-year old child was commuting in a bus to school. He was sitting by the window and gazing at the sky. Suddenly, a ray of energy emerged from the child’s body, projected on the sky and formed an image of Goddess Narayani. Goddess Narayani was adorned in white, holding a ‘Sanku’ in her left hand and ‘Chakra’ in her right. A Lotus Flower was held in her third hand, while the fourth hand was held up in a gesture of blessing. After the form was revealed, it disappeared and the ray of energy returned into the child. It was thus an established fact from the very early age of Sri Sakthi Amma that a spiritual life was in store for the child.
