Ma Mookambika is the
Universal Mother. She is Adi Shakti...the source of all energy. When MahaSarasvati,
MahaLakshmi and MahaKali merge with Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh, the ultimate embodiment is
Ma Mookambika. She is omnipresent, omnipotent, ever loving; Mother energy personified.
In 1972, Mr. V. S. Nayak, the
father of five children and an electrical engineer working in Phillips India, much to his
own chagrin, was chosen by Devi, as Her messenger and healer. Initially, it seemed the
most inappropriate choice. He was a man, who when confronted in an argument, allowed His
fists to do most of the talking. He was fond of all the good things in life and the only
Devi, He was acquainted with, were those adoring the silver screen. He wanted nothing to
do with spirituality and the mystical path. If ever, there was a reluctant Swami, He was
the one. He fought tooth and nail against His own destiny, and after two years, accepted
to be Devi's medium, but on His own terms.
Since then and now, thousands
of people have benefited with the innumerable but forever accurate predictions, as well as
the miracles that have been performed by Devi through Swamiji. Miracles have been
experienced by devotees and skeptics alike. It is little wonder, that to most devotees,
the fine line differentiating Devi and Swamiji, has long since disappeared. A Sage - who
is not surrounded by a coitre of security...who is accessible to one and all, at all
times, irrespective of cast, creed and financial status.
Ruzbeh N. Bharucha,
journalist-editor and the author of The Last Marathon, dwells into the lives of all those,
who have witnessed and experienced the love and grace of Ma Mookambika and Swamiji.
Spending time with Swamiji and His innumerable devotees, the author, with his casual drawl
and loads of humor, has created a heart warming story, about astounding miracles, a loving
Sage and the Universal Mother.
