Spiritual seekers come to sacred places like Jillellamudi for doing spiritual Sadhana. When sincerely practiced, the Sadhaka would reach the ultimate state of the mind. In such transcendental states one becomes complete. This process will be speeded up with the grace of the Mahatmas in the spiritually uplifting centers.
About Hymalayam! The question arises why Amma, chose her own daughter Hyma, imparting divinity and consecrating her as a goddess in Hymalayam. It is an undisputed fact that Amma considered every one as her child. Amma would not have chosen Hyma for the role, had she thought Hyma to be like any other. Amma looked for a recipient equivalent to her own Self. Such a container should be able to receive the energies transmitted by Amma. It can also be presumed that Hyma has been groomed all through her earthly life to fulfill this divine role.
It is like Amma creating from her own body an element and naming it as Hyma. Many could intuitively sense the divine traits of Hyma right from her childhood.
As Amma knew all along the divine role Hyma has to play, instead of alleviating the disease and suffering of Hyma, she merely stood as a witness to her suffering and unfolding of further events. After the consciousness of Hyma became universal crossing the limited boundaries of body, Amma’s demeanor got radiantly transformed and the atmosphere was so surcharged that hundreds of persons could sense that it was an epochal event.
Thus, Hymalayam is a shrine carved by Amma with an image embodying the Divine Energy. Sadhana done in the precincts of Hymalayam will take the Sadhaka to higher stages as the Shakti of Amma has been enshrined here by Amma herself.
As the Sadhaka has to progress from physical to metaphysical and spiritual levels, Shakti Kshetram like Hymalayam is maintained with devotion and by observance of austerities carefully. For many, it is energy centre!
At each spiritual center, there is a certain vibration and the Sadhaka will have to tune his being to that momentum. Conscious and sincere efforts are needed to achieve this and a casual attitude that the divine will take care of everything including our Sadhana alone will not help.
A wide range of persons starting with spiritual novices to intense and advanced Sadhakas come to Jillellamudi to gain the grace of Amma and Hyma to progress in their spiritual pursuits.
If we can abide in ourselves, it is the ultimate meditative state. As such, one should not stop at the worship of images. With suitable and practicable sadhana, each one will have to cultivate an expansive open mind from which noble thoughts emanate. Effort should be made to increase the gap between one thought and the next one for, the thoughts become the resolve for the welfare of all.
With this kind of approach, the very way of living has to be transformed as Sadhana, as Hyma has shown the way to the seekers.
