Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi prophesied that Sri Sri Sri Vijayeswari Devi would be born as "Thai"—the divine mother. He explained that she was incarnating at this time to help heal the earth. True to Ramana’s prophecy, Bhagavati Sri Sri Sri Vijayeswari Devi was born October 21, 1958—the most holy day of Vijayadasami (the day of Victory). Now she is known around the world as Sri Amma Karunamayi—the heart of compassion.
Sri Amma Karunamayi is an avatar—one who was born enlightened. To her beloved children all over the world she is simply Amma the one whose presence removes lifetimes of suffering. She is revered around the world as the Divine Mother—the supreme swan—the embodiment of unconditional divine love.
Sri Amma Karunamayi is something of an enigma. No words exist to describe her and no words can convey the blessed feeling of being in her divine presence. Only your own direct experience can convey this divinity. This might be difficult for the mind to comprehend, but there is no question that she is a deity in human form.
Kosi received Shaktipat initiation from Sri Amma Karunamayi in July of 2011 during Guru Purnima. This initiation was a great awakening for Kosi—the advent of the Clear Awareness.
Shaktipat can be transmitted in person or at a distance, through an object such as a flower or fruit or letter. Shaktipat is considered an act of grace (anugraha) on the part of the guru or the divine.
During Shaktipat the very consciousness of the god or guru is transmitted into the disciple, constituting an initiation into the school or the spiritual family (kula) of the guru. The Shaktipat initiation in July of 2011 was Kosi's initiation into the Śiva Kaśyapa Lineage.
