I came to know about this 300-crore Golden temple through media, and also through 2 of my friends who had already visited the shrine. More than the temple, I was curious to know about the person behind the whole project. I gooogled and found the answer. It is Sri Shakti Amma - a man who is an ardent devotee of Lord Narayanee. (Google - Narayanee Peedam - for results).
Me & God: June 2008 Archives
Days passed, and I had stopped thinking about this particular issue. One fine day, my sister asked me to drop and pick her up from a particular place. And I had 1 hour in between. I thought I would visit the Sai Baba temple on ECR, Chennai in the meantime. Thankfully I was carrying one of Osho’s books – Krishna – which I could read there.
“I will give you the chart details and the planetary positions. Will you be able to tell me the person’s date and time of birth?” One of my Express days friends asked me over Yahoo Messenger. I said very much possible. She gave me 3 other clues – one that the person was a saint, secondly that he was born in the 14th Century, and third that he was born in Maharashtra!
I drew the horoscope on a white paper and looking at the planetary placements she had given I said few events of his past, and my friend agreed to most of them. So I presumed that the chart was right, and now I just need to find his date and time of birth. But things weren’t as easy as it looked initially.
