Shri Datta Swami

Can You please explain to us Your devotee's experience in which a boy possessed by a Goddess declared that You are God?

[An online spiritual discussion was conducted on December 13, 2020, in which several devotees participated. Some of the questions of devotees answered by Swāmi are given below.]

[Śrī Bharath Krishna said: Swāmi, recently Goddess Aṃkāḻamma entered into a boy’s body. One of Your devotees named Amudha was present there. Through him, Aṃkāḻamma told Amuda that the Sadguru she believes and worships (Śrī Datta Swāmi) is none other than God. Is the Goddess’s entry into the boy’s body the same as Āveśa Avatāra, which is known as pūnakaṃ in Telugu? I also read about one miracle done by devils in the presence of You and Śrī Ajay. Śrī Ajay wanted to see a ghost. You told him that he would see the proof of the existence of ghosts that night. He was a little scared and closed all the doors and slept. Next morning when he woke up, he was shocked to see all the doors and windows open since he was certain it was done by the ghosts.

Śrī Ajay: I was so scared at that moment. Swāmi also said that those demons had come as a group to get liberation (vimukti) from their lives as ghosts.]

Swāmi replied: Āveśa is called pūnakaṃ in Telugu. It is the entry and possession of a person by an Energetic Incarnation of God or an energetic being like a ghost. It is the basic technology of incarnation. The energetic form enters the human body and merges with it so as to identify itself with that body. Aṃkāḻamma is one of the Energetic Incarnations of the Divine Mother called Ādi Parāśakti. Even previously, there has been a miraculous incident involving a possession. In that incident, a miracle was expressed by Me in Vijayawada. A lady, Smt. Rama, saw the energetic wheel of God Viṣṇu rotating behind My head at about 11:00 am. At the same time, My niece was present near a lady in Narasaraopet and that lady was possessed by a deity called Nidānaṃpāṭi Śrīlakṣmī. This Goddess is very famous in Andhra Pradesh. The possessed lady said to My niece that her uncle (Me) has just shown the energetic wheel of God Vishnu behind His head to a lady in Vijayawada. My niece phoned Me and other devotees to verify what the possessed lady had told her. Such knowledge can only take place with the help of divine power.
