Sripuram Golden Temple - 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.  Vellore, Tamil Nadu.
