I am a major dreamer. Quite literally. I dream in technicolor and scene by scene unfolds everytime I sleep. I have had several profound dreams as well, some of which have come as a message during tough times.
What I am asking help for right now, is about one such dream. This is probably my last resort to find out.
I was probably 12 then, not the greatest points in time in our lives and I remember dreaming of a Goddess who seemed reclined like Lord Ranganatha in a mandap where there are hundreds of women and men perhaps, I am not too sure, singing Bhajans. I walk up to the Goddess. She is all alive, a very human form. I go to her and the Goddess, clad in yellow, lifts herself up and tells me that she has been waiting to see me for a long time and asks when I am going to come and see her. And I ask where should I look for you? She says "Madhura pakkathula Kali". "Madhura" was said very coloquially, not pronounced to the last syllable. And then she transforms into an idol. One leg folded up.
I remember telling my grandad first, asking him whether he knows of a reclining Goddess. He asked me to go to Siruvachur, wherein the Goddess Madura Kali resides. I went there and to countless other temples in search of her. We have perhaps looked and asked around Madurai. Went looking for her in our very own Paramakudi. But somehow I do not think I have found her yet. Perhaps this is Her way of leading me on a chase, by which I end up going to temple after temple. I love it though. I have been interested in it ever since mom's project with Govt of India happened, on Temple Traditions and Culture; She is a senior fellow. Her documentaries and other work rest at home, which I intend to bring out soon.
So as a last resort, I am asking you if by any chance some temple comes to your mind after reading this, do let me know. I will make it a point to visit there. And if it is near Mathura, UP do let me know. I could perhaps look there as well.
