Relief supplies have
begun arriving in Port Blair
Indian army says planes have dropped food and water to
tsunami survivors on all the inhabited islands in the
Andaman and Nicobar chain.
There was criticism that aid has
been slow to reach survivors, thousands of whom may be
sheltering on high ground.
The military commander in charge of
the relief effort said the most remote locations had now
Nearly 9,000 people are known to
have died across India, 812 of them in the islands, with
thousands more missing.
"This is the biggest relief effort
in the history of India," Home Ministry junior minister Sri
Prakash Jaiswal said from the capital Port Blair, the
Associated Press news agency reported.
"We are reaching everywhere with
aid. I still have hopes that there will be survivors among
the missing people," he added.

Just received this miraculous news about Andaman Islands. i also
believe that many SYs were saved because when the tsunami struck
many from the affected areas like Andaman and Tamil Nadu were in
Pune attending the Christmas Puja. That all 50+ SYs from
one of the worst affected areas, survived is indeed a miracle.
So Satya take care of yourself and be grateful you did not
How the Adi Shakti from within protects and safeguards those who

Miracle from the Andaman Islands
(from Gudrun, Austrian Yogini in Madras)
Over fifty Sahaja Yogis live on the Andaman Islands, near the
epicentre of the earthquake. About twelve were at the puja in
On the way home to Madras in the train we were shocked to read
the disaster in the newspaper, and we suddenly fell from heaven
onto the earth. Then one yogi said, relaxed and peaceful, "My
is about 300 meters from the seashore. My mother and sister are
there." Another said, "I live 1 kilometer from the beach."
The next news from them came: Everything is okay. The rest of us
were sure that they would have been wiped out. The one yogi had
on the train in India, "I traveled to Shri Mataji and She is
my home. That is logical."
The power of shraddha - Jai Shri Mataji!

Subject: DivineSahajayoga Miracle (or as expected by
grace!!) story from Tsunami-hit Andaman & Nicobar—
Yogis & SY center there
Jai Shri Mataji !
It has been reported in various Indian media that the
Andaman & Nicobar group of islands of India had
suffered around 3000 deaths and little over double the
number were reported missing till yesterday (the
official death count is based on number of bodies
found—the bodies not found are declared missing!).
The leader of Andaman & Nicobar Mr. Manoranjan Saha is
based in the capital of the island group - Port Blair.
The gentleman is very-very simple, even by Indian
standards. He wears a dhoti-kurta (a dhoti is a wrap
around cloth, generally of cotton, that is still worn
by villagers in many states in India and regarded
unfashionable by modern Indians!). His sight is always
towards The Mother Earth or towards Shri Ma. He cannot
speak English (he acknowledges that he had learnt it
in college but cannot speak) but can converse in Hindi
with a Assamese or Bengali (east Indian languages)
accent that is difficult even for a hindi language
knower to understand. It was heard that he is made fun
of even amongst SY's in a center which I too was part
of but his surrender and dedication are what SY's like
me who are nowhere as deep as him should look up to
He had presented miracle photographs that came out at
his center to SY's including me when I was based in a
city in South India. The photo had his contact number
at the back. The day before yesterday (4th Jan 05) it
was announced on the Indian Television that
telecommunications with Andaman & Nicobar group of
islands have been restored. On calling him up
yesterday morning he was very happy to receive a call
from a SY. He said that all 150 SY's in the group of
islands are safe by Mother's grace. The center is
intact too. (He runs the center from his house of
which he occupies a very small part & has dedicated
the rest of the house for the center. The center can
accommodate all 150 SY's there!). He informed that a
SY had a house at the jetty. The waves crossed the
jetty's wall but stopped at the wall of this house
(you may have seen in photographs of areas along the
coast in south-east Asia that all structures along the
coast were completely destroyed. This house is not).
He informed that the center was on a small hill and
On asking him whether he needed help in any way he
seemed very hesitant to ask. Here he was in a land
torn apart by Tsunamis and in one of the worst
affected places of India, being asked how he/ the
other SY's could be helped while he kept on talking
only Sahaja matters. He narrated how he had asked the
question at the South Indian Seminar last year of how
to remain in the Sahastrara longer & how he had
received beautiful answers from other SY's. His only
regret was that he had wished to donate some land and
build an old age home by Mother's grace but the water
level has now gone over his land (a number of islands
have gone under water completely or partly).
It was requested of him to check up with other SY's in
the group of islands and to inform if they needed any
help and it was thought that if he himself may have
needs, he may inform subsequently. A contact telephone
number was given to him but he said that it was not
possible to call outside from Andamans till that point
of time. He said that he had wanted to contact Mr.
Nalgirkar (India leader) to take permission for
performing a havan after the disaster but he could not
get through. He also said that he also did not wish to
call any SY in the mainland so that the person may not
wrongly construe it as a call for help.
Though he had been told that he will be called after a
day to check on help needed but I was worried how to
organize (any sum would be a pittance to people whom
I thought would have lost there everything) and then
how to send out the help (bank transfers may not be
working; even if a SY from South India is requested (I
have been brought to Pune by Mother's grace & am no
longer in South India) it would be difficult for him
to go there—and it was anyway too late by the time I
remembered that I had Mr. Saha's telephone number with
me! Also the telephone lines had just started working.
Yesterday I even thought that I will post this to a SY
e-mail group & word will spread. But then I was also
worried how people will talk to him because of his
language constraints mentioned earlier and even if
someone wants to send help the logistics barriers may
be insurmountable for now. The Indian government is
indeed doing a good job of giving help to its affected
people and also other affected nations but the
prevailing conditions are really very bad. All the
time I was thinking how this problem can be solved not
realizing that the divine itself takes care of all its
Today, after trying to leave it to the divine and
giving myself a bandhan, Uncle Saha was called. It was
already afternoon—it had taken me that much time to
surrender and call! When asked whether he could find
out what help was required he again reassured that all
150 SY's in the island are safe and do not need
anything (though the overall situation is indeed grim
since the lowermost point of this group of islands is
just 60 nautical miles from the epicenter of the
earthquake in Indonesia). He said that by Mother's
grace he was pretty well off monetarily (though many
of his lands are under the water now). He also helped/
is helping other SY's in the islands monetarily. He
said that he is telling me about the help he has/is
providing only because I am sounding too concerned;
otherwise he prefers not to tell this. His only grief
now is that his desire to build the old-age home may
not happen or be stalled because of nature's fury.
What he said subsequently demonstrated the
establishment of Shri Mahalaxmi in him. He wants to
donate a huge sum for SY. He asked me that since I am
in Pune I should find out how he can give the money.
He had actually bought the money when he came to Pune
for Christmas Puja but was unable to meet the national
or the city leader because of the huge event (these
were the only means he seems to know through whom to
donate) and had to take the money back. What is
specially touching is that he still wants to give the
same amount in spite of the difficult condition he may
More on the miracle—though in SY it is not a miracle
but known fact of Shri Mataji's protective powers. The
SY center in Port Blair had many photo-frames of Shri
Mataji. Though they fell down because of the
earthquake but not even a single one was broken! The
public address system too is intact. It had cost Mr.
Saha quite a sum to purchase this for public
programmes. The center had a couple of televisions and
mud pots of plants. (I can get the center photograph
with me scanned but don't know how to send to the
group without being blocked by yahoo because I see all
attachments removed in yahoo where I receive my divine
sahajayoga group e-mails except the ones kindly posted
by the Moderator whose url i.e. link is specified).
Everything of the center is intact. Most others
buildings around are destroyed and people are saying
that this building remaining and that too with its
contents intact is a miracle.
Many people are leaving the islands because of fear of
inundation of the land and bad conditions there. He
says that because of Shri Mataji he does not have any
fear and wants to remain there to carry on Sahaja
work. A true leader, isn't he?
Jai Shri Mataji !
- a SY from Pune
1. Mr. Manoranjan Saha's telephone no is 03192-235031.
It may have to be dialed +91-03192-235031 from other
than India. He may not understand non-hindi speaking
SY's but will definitely understand Jai Shri Mataji
(Your talk may be limited to that only !!)
The telephone of Andaman & Nicobar centre if any SY
wishes to dial from a country other than India would
be +91-3192-235031. The hyphens(dashes in the number)
are to be ignored i.e. like 00913192235031.
2. Just got a phone call from a SY in Chennai in South
India —of course all are safe there as well - JSMJ !
