To get rid of the karma earned up by the evil deeds in this birth itself one needs Amma's immense blessings. Such Souls are the ones who get a chance to wear Sakthi Maalai and carry Irumudi which is to be presented at the holy feets of Amma.
This SAKTHI MALAI is a Red Beed Garland that holds a locket portraying the Sanctum Sanctorum of Melmaruvathur and the Sri Chakra on its rear. This Sakthi Malai is a symbol of self control over senses and purity of thoughts. Wearing this Sakthi Malai And carrying the Irumudi and presenting it at the mother's feet deprives karma of one's present and previous births. There is an ancient saying "You Could worship almighty only if thee has blessed you to do so".
Similarly, not just wearing of Sakthi Malai will make one karma free. Beside wearing Sakthi Malai certain rules have to be followed as a outcome of which one could get rid of his karma. The IRUMUDI,this word could be explained as "twobags". Following is the explanation for IRUMUDI given by Amma in her oracle.
