We think of God only in troubled times!
24th December 2012 – Monday
Amma narrated this incident to explain how most of us think of God seriously only in trouble times.
Once Amma was travelling in flight with all her troup (sometime while in US or Europe tour). It was time to take food and food was being served. Suddenly the plane got into a turbulance and flight became shaky and bumpy. All got frightened and most of the people were shouting aloud “Amma, Amma….” Many were loudly chanting other God names; many were praying feverishly with folded palms.
After a while, the turbulance was crossed and the flight became normal again. As though a power was switched off, all the people stopped praying and chanting, smile returned to their faces and they started to eat their food as though nothing had happened!
“We think about existence of our head only when we get a headache!” quipped Amma and all of us laughed. “Amma loves to see her children laughing” said Amma laughing.
