Sri Sakthi Amma was born on the 3rd of January 1976, to Smt. Jyothiamma and Shri. Nanda Gopal. It was evident from birth that this child was divine and very special. A distinct divine ray of light (Namam) on the infant’s forehead was vividly visible, along with symbols of ‘Chakra’ (Wheels) and ‘Sanku’ (Conch) on either side of the chest. Through this, the divine connection was established and people recognized the child as very special. From a very early age, the child began showing great interest in spiritual life. The child demonstrated profound interest only in spiritual life, participated blissfully in Pujas/Bhajans (religious ceremonies), and insisted on visiting places of worship on a daily basis. On many occasions, the child would be absent from school and would be found in temples or at other places where religious activities were being conducted. It was thus an established fact from the very early age of Sri Sakthi Amma that a spiritual life was in store for the child.
