Letter to Sri Siva Jothi Mona Siddhar

Yesterday evening I escorted a couple from Brazil, South America to the countryside ashram of Sri Siva Jothi Mona Siddhar. We drove through a torrential rainstorm, but upon arrival the weather let up and we had a long evening visit with Swami. 

As it was so dark and wet I did not take any new photographs, thus the series of photographs below are from another time. 

Upon leaving Swami entrusted me with a book of letters written by previous visitors and devotees to his Ashram, telling of their experiences. For now, I post below, one such letter written to Sri Siva Jothi Mona Siddhar from a devotee in Chennai.

From Chennai 

Iyyah: I place my prayers at your feet and seek your blessings and guidance always. I wish to record a dream I had a couple of days back. It was around 3.30 a.m. in the morning, when this dream occurred. In the dream my son, my grandson and me are travelling in the front seat of our car and on the way, my son who is driving the car enters a cave and through it a long and dark passage. I feel apprehensive about the tunnel and tell my son that this is a path of almost no return and is going to land us in a lot of trouble. I therefore tell my son to retrace our path and exit the place immediately. 

He turns the car around within the tunnel, which seems miraculous and comes out of the tunnel into bright daylight. We stop and I get down and look into the cave to see who helped us and see a glistening white huge dog standing there and immediately understand that we have been saved by Siddhars like you. From there we reach your Ashram to inform you of this occurrence and thank you for your saving us and to seek your blessings. 

We sit on the steps by which we enter your room and when we look inside, I find a cot inside, on which you are seated with a huge aura around you and rays of light emanating from you. At that time, a huge jet black Labrador dog comes out of your room playfully. 

I was very happy to have this dream, since it showed your divinity and your true self. It also showed that you were guiding and protecting us in the journey of our life. 

Thank you Iyyah, we really feel blessed. 
A Devotee
