There are many, many prophecies given hundreds of years ago that foretell about Ayyah and His ministry. This Chapter will deal with a few of them. A more complete edition of these prophecies can be read in the Books Kalki Avatar, Vol. I and II. These books are available from Manujothi Publications and deal with the subject extensively. It would be hard for even the staunchest critic to dismiss all the striking and exact descriptions of Ayyah and his ministry, foretold in these prophecies hundreds of years before.
THE LORD SHOULD COME WHEN SCIENTISTS GO TO MOON
"When the atheists, after knowing the Scientific knowledge try to conquer the different planets, flying in wee-built rockets unseen in sky under the guidance of Maya, The Lord will bewilder all the minds of ungodly people, atheists, etc.. by taking a form and will preach His Dharma." (Quote from Srimad-Bhagavatam: Canto 2, Ch. 7:37.)
Veda Vyasar's prophecy in Srimad-Bhagavatam says that when man occupies other planets, Narayana (Lord God) will come in human form and will be propagating His Dharma.
THE LORD SHOULD COME IN SOUTH INDIA AND BE FOUND AT THE VERY SPOT OF AYYAH'S ASHRAM
"The followers of Narayana will be very few in Kaliyuga (this present time). Rarely they may be seen in Dravidadesham (South India), wherein Tamiraparani will be flowing. The other rivers of that land will be Cauvery, the ever Holy Vaigai, Palar. But these people will desire to drink, as devotees, the ever Holy Vasudeva (Lord) Himself; all of them will leave their belongings, their position, their status, their wealth, and their parents, their friends, etc., but will surrender to Mukunda (another name for the Lord)." (Quote from Srimad-Bhagavatam, Canto 11, Ch. 5:38-42.)
THE ALMIGHTY GOD HAS TO APPEAR AS A BLACK MAN
"In this age the Lord should appear as a black man, Krishna Mafias, Bliagaha. (Krishna means, black in colour.) Also Krishna, The Mysterious One, his genealogy and power are hidden from the world." (Quote from Srimad-Bhagavatam, Texts 31-32.)
AYYAH'S BIRTH FORETOLD IN TAMIL YEAR 1016
(About 200 years ago.)
"The Lord called Lakshmi and told her, that she will bring forth a Man Child. (Lakshmi is the name of the tea estate in Munnar Kerala, South India, where Ayyah was born.) He will investigate the whole world and will destroy Kali (devil) and I will give the Kingdom to My Son and crown him and will give a sceptre to him to rale the whole world." (Quote from Ahilathirattu, P.4.)
SHOULD BE BORN IN A TEA ESTATE'
"Oh Vaikuntar (Lord of Heaven) You are born in a Tea Estate to make us live forever without any sorrow. The Lord Narayana that has come down now is the Lord Almighty, Omnipresent, who has come to us. He is our Ayyah." (Quote from Neethiyin Sooriyan, Page xxix -No. 34)
PROPHECY TELLS, GOD SHOULD COME IN SOUTH INDIA TO ONE IN AYYAH'S FAMILY
"This is the True Sign that I will come down in South India to investigate the world. He took His birth as the 5th descendant of Royal Nobleman Sudalaimadan." (Ayyah's great, great grandfather.) -(Quote from Arulnool P. 69.)
WITH SIGNS OF CLOUD AND MOON
"I will come to the Shanars-Nadars, with the full presence of varuna (cloud and moon) at the appropriate time." (Quote from Ahilathirattu. P. 118.)
NOTE: Nadars are not a separate caste but a royal tribe, descendants of Nathan son of King David and King Solomon's full brother.
AYYAH'S NAME IS FORETOLD 200 YEARS AGO
The full name of Ayyah given to him at birth is Rasiah, his father's name, Paulaseer Lawrie Muthukrishna. In Sanskrit Paul means King or Ruler.)
"The Lord is born as Paul-a-seer, as a son of a saint by name Rasa." (Quote from Ahilathirattu, P.23L)
AYYAH SHOULD DESTROY DEVIL AND RULE THE WORLD
"I will destroy the wicked Kali, I will give the deadly bow and arrow to Paul: I will swallow the poison of the world and thus make my Paul to rule the world." (Quote from Ahilathirattu, Page 171.)
GOING TO GLORY FORETOLD
"Before Paul goes in Glory, whoever wants to surrender, come and surrender to him and worship him." (Quote from Arulnool, P. 3.)
LORD GIVES MESSAGE OF LIFE IN HIS ABODE IN MUKKUDAL
"The disciples come and see Narayana as an eternal green flower with fire in His eyes, embracing His people, comforting them, giving His message of Life in His abode in MuMaitdal." (Quote from Arulnool, P. 3.)
Note: The nearest village to the Ashram where Ayyah lived is Mukkudal, which is within walking distance.
GOD WILL COME WHEN MAN TREADS ON THE MOON
"When moon is trodden down by man, I will come with My Host." (Quote from Arulnool, Neethiyin Sooriyan, P. 61.)
Shrivilliputhur Andal, a Vaishnavite Virgin of the 11th century has prophesied: Lord! Narayana has to come as a Black Mass from South India. That He has to be for some time in Lanka. (Sri Lanka, where Ayyah lived in his younger days.) - (A quote from a Tamil book, Thirupaavai.)
Shri Basaveshwara of Karnataka said, "Koodala SangamaDeva." - God meets in Kudal. - 'Kudal5 is a variation of Mukkudal, the village close to Ayyah's place.
Veera Brahmmam of Andhra, nearly two and a half centuries ago, has also spoken about Him, and has foretold that God will appear as Veerabhoga Vasantharayudu and will establish an Ananda Ashram. He also prophesied that God comes in these last days as a man residing in an Ashram of South India.
Gurudev Sheik Khadar Mastan Alisha Khadar gave the following prophecy in the late 19th Century: "You have created your glory and kept that glory in Latsari."
William Marrion Branham, U.S.A. foretold that he was to foreran the second coming of Jesus.He said that he was laying a platform for a great one who was to follow him. He said what God should look like, that he would be a man of dark complexion and weigh about 200 pounds, in his messages during 1960's.
The Leader of Sahaj Marg, Shree Ramachandra of North India, in his discourses on Kalki Avatar, has declared that the expected Avatar has already come, and He is secretly fulfilling His Plan in this earth.
Again Ayyah Is the One referred to by Nostradamus, a Jewish Monk, who lived in Paris, France, a few centuries ago. In his book, Centuries, he has written that the Lord will rise in South India.
OTHER BOOKS AND SAINTS HAVE PROPHESIED THAT GOD SHOULD COME IN SOUTH INDIA;
Taking a summary of these and many other prophecies, we find they perfectly fit Ayyah even in exact detail, to be the one whom God has chosen to dwell in.
"He must be a man of dark complexion, weighing about 200 pounds, must be from Nazareth of Tiruchendur of Tiranelveli District of Tamil Nadu. India, bom in Lakshmi Tea Estate of Munnar. His father's name must be Rasiah and mother's name Nesammal. He must have children and must have gone to Sri Lanka at the age of five and must have spent part of his married life in Sri Lanka. His wife must have curly hair. His name must begin with the capital L. He must reside on the outskirts of Tamiraparani River. He must reside in an Ashram located: South of Srirangam, East of Tenkasi. North of Kanyakumari and Sri Lanka. At his time only the temple tower of the Tenkasi Hindu Temple will have to be split open in front to the back portion, when his Ashram is midway between Tiruchendar and Temkasi. He must have a strong leg. He must be a man from the East. God must have come down on him when man steps on the Moon. He should be of Royal lineage of the community of Nadars. Should have Sudalaimadan, as fifth grandfather. He should have Clouds with him. He should be from the Loins of King David. (Not virgin birth.) Maithreya spoken of by Gauthama (Buddha). He is the One sung about by the great poet Bharathiar as Kamnan, the Perfect One; that is why he has sung, 'We shall serve only Him, the Perfect One', in his masterpiece, 'Song of Praises'. Gitanjali Nobel Laureate Poet Rabindranath Tagore, has sung about Him only. He is the Dakshinamurthi spoken of by Aadhi Shankara. He is also the Christ, the Mohammad spoken of in the Bible. All the Scriptures have thus been fulfilled in Him. His Devotees are widespread throughout the world.
These are only a few of the precise descriptions that were foretold hundreds of years ago to point to the coming one who should be King of Heaven and Earth. All of these descriptions are fulfilled in the life of Rasiah Paulaseer Lawrie Muthukrishna, affectionately called Ayyah by his devotees. When these prophesies, given hundreds of years ago are taken together, can any other than Ayyah fulfil that position? Many have claimed that they are the Avatar or Son of God, but only Ayyah meets all what has been foretold by prophets through the ages, in his life and times. Ayyah never sought for this position; it was thrust upon him by God. It came to him from heaven.
Further references for these and many more prophecies that relate to Ayyah, can be obtained from Manujothi Publications.
