“Om Namo Narayanaya” and the Turtle
Mauritius Pilgrimage January 2018
I would like to share a very special story with you, which happened at our pilgrimage with Paramahamsa Vishwananda in Mauritius.
Before we could arrive, there was a cyclone over Mauritius with a lot of rain included.
We were visiting the Botanical garden and in it, there was an area with huge turtles. One of them was stucked in mud since the cyclone (1,5weeks). Because she was so heavy they didn’t try to get her out. We couldn’t believe that nobody was helping her and we were thinking what we could do.
Suddenly someone said: Lets chant “Om Namo Narayanaya“.
I admit I was skeptical and wanted to turn around.
But something inside me let me join the group and so we were chanting all together to the turtle. After approx.. 5 Minutes the turtle started to lift the head, further and further and suddenly she moved a leg. It was like she was getting ground under her feet’s and she was pushing and pushing and was moving.
First there was one leg out and we could see that she was struggling with the others. But we didn’t give up chanting and so she moved one leg after the other till she suddenly was out and was biting into the green grass at the side of the mood, which was waiting for her already since 1,5 weeks.
We all were so touch and I had tears in my eyes feeling so much grace and having the possibility to see this miracle happen.
Thank you Paramahamsa Vishwananda for letting me be part of this special moment.
…. Om Namo Narayanaya…
