Tribute from Youngest Son, Amerasen
Legacy of Jagathamba Govender 02-Mar-1935 to 13-Apr-2007
A LEGACY OF TENACITY, FAITHFULNESS, FORGIVENESS, MERCY, TRUTH, ENDURANCE, TRUST, STAMINA, BOLDNESS, INTEGRITY...
You have not just left me but you have touched my heart with an everlasting aroma. You have been my hope and inspiration through it all, mommy – my shoulder to cry on and a pillar of strength. The emotions that I feel is unexplainable to how deeply and truly I miss you…
Amma, Arthie ParaShakthie, help me to spread Your fragrance everywhere I go. Flood my soul with Your spirit of gentleness and life of kindness. Penetrate & possess my whole being so utterly that all my life may only be a radiance of Your’s, Oh Divine Mother! Shine through me & be so much in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel Your presence in my soul. Let them look up & see no longer me but only Shakthie, Divine Love! Stay with me & then I shall begin to shine as You shine, so to shine as to be a light to others: The light, Oh Mother, will be from You; none of it will be mine; it will be You shining on others through me. Let me thus praise You in the way You love best: by shining on those around me. Let me preach YOU without preaching, not just by words but by example, by the catching force, the sympathetic influence of what I do, the evident fullness of the love my heart bears to You!”
Mom, Its no wonder you had a smile and tears in your eyes that last day… I can only imagine the applause all the hosts of heaven could have given you as they stood to watch the daughter of the King being ushered into His presence. You are prized by God Almighty and now finally you’re with the One that loves you more than us all. You will live on because you lived a God-like life that was off effect to me and all others that you came in contact with, mom.
I am grateful to God for the path you have walked with me. If I live to be even half the God loving devotee you were, I know I will have done well. It is because of you that God’s grace through Arthie Parashakthie has been made plain to understand and practical to carry out by me and all those that choose to learn from me.
Your ‘aroma’ lingers on to all those who will ever receive and accept the Love of Arthie Parashakthie. Thank you for all your love Mom, your care, your support, your prayers and your gentle eyes to look to when everything seemed to fall down all around me.
You gave your all without reservation, you was totally selfless and did exactly what God required of you. You’ve always been my role model & inspiration. What you have instilled inside of me will always hold a special place in my heart and in the hearts of all you have touched.
Priscilla & I will tell our children of your goodness and I will teach them what you have taught me. Every devotee in the Shri Suria-Narayan Temple will always speak of your devotion and untiring love for the rest of their days.
Mommy, you silently spoke volumes through your life here on earth and you will speak even greater than that through your impact on the many lives that you have inspired, encouraged and transformed. MOM, YOU WILL LIVE ON…
Your loving son, Amerasen
