Crore 9 of our Japam has barely begun and good news has already started coming in:
One Japam Participant informed us:
"My wife and I are planning to go on an Amarnath Yatra this year and then drive from Srinagar to Manali via Leh, Kargil and through Rotang pass the world's highest motarable road. Let us see what Lord Shiva has in store for us"
Have a safe trip, dear ones!
A very new Japam Participant emailed us:
"I started doing japam to have mental peace and concentration. With all the odds I am facing and the chaos that exists around me, I am finding that things are the same around me but I am not perturbed by them any more. That was such a great revelation for me."
Another new Japam Participant described his experience:
"Earlier this year, I lost my job with a multinational corporation and couldn't find another one for three months. Needless to say I was very anxious as I have three children and a wife to support. I remembered reading about the Nama Japam Group of Sree Vellat Puthur Shiva Temple's and sent an email.
You all were very reassuring and asked me to start japam immediately and to donate to the annadanam fund at the temple.
Then, a miracle happened:
The moment I posted my japam, I got a call from a major corporation asking me if I was available for an interview. I said 'YES.' The interview went well but they did not call me back immediately as they had promised to.
So I panicked and contacted the japam group again. I was asked if I had donated for the annadanam at the temple. I replied that I had tried to but my bank asked me for a password that I didn’t even know I had. I will donate later… whenever
I was told that I must create punyam for myself by donating to the annadanam. The call will come as soon as I do that. So I rushed to the foreign exchange mart and begged the man to allow me to send some money to a charity. Their policy is to transfer to individuals only. Much to my surprise he agreed to do it as a one time exception.
As soon as I got home, I got a call from a friend at the company saying the documents were ready and that I should expect a call from the President of the company at any moment. It seemed like a long wait and Lord Puthurappan was testing my patience. So I repeated the mantra and waited some more. Just now I got a call from the President asking me to sign the documents and start tomorrow - Monday. That it is Lord Shiva's day has not been lost on me.
Thank you for helping me in my time of crisis. I will definitely visit Sree Vellat Puthur Shiva temple on my next visit to India and I promise Lord Shiva that I will donate a portion of my salary every month as soon as I receive it.
My wife and I thank you all once again.
Thank you Puthur Shiva
