While I was working in Nagercoil, a city in the district of Kanyakumari of Tamilnadu, I heard about a holy women sitting and blessing from the rocks of Kanyakumari. One Sunday, I reached Kanyakumari to see that women. She was an old lady without her top, and had only a towel tied around her waist. She was on the rock, surrounded by many dogs sleeping around her. I could see many people sitting close to her to get her blessings. Someone was trying to feed her with their home-prepared food. I was just watching her. She was busy heating the crabs. She never uttered a word. She never accepted the food.
I just went and sat on her side. I bent down and said, " Maam, Muje Aashirvad Karo." Yes. She kept her hand on my head and said nothing. I felt blessed. How can a Hindi speaking lady understand the Tamils around her seeking her blessings. Probably, she was a north Indian lady who came on a tour, but left by her touring team. People thought that she was a Goddess landed at Kanyakumari.
Her name is Maaya. She is no more. There is a small temple for her near the Kanyakumari Bhagavathi temple. It is known as 'Mayaadevi temple"
I feel blessed by her. I am well off.
No life without Sun
