Meeting Amma

“Love is the very foundation, beauty and fulfillment of life. If we dive deep enough into ourselves, we will find that the one thread of universal love ties all beings together. As this awareness dawns within us, peace alone will reign.”

 

Who Is Amma?

Mata Amritanandamayii, known as Amma, The Hugging Mother.

Where is Amma now?

Amma is currently in Her birthplace in Amritapuri in Kerala, India. This is where the central, international ashram is and many followers live.

 

Due to the current global situation, Amma do not host her usual world tours. She knows Her Children are missing Her and really look forward to when She again can hug them. Until then, one can follow virtual events and retreats with meditation, fasting, prayers and more.

“Like the spring travelling around the globe, Amma visits her devotees in their own cities and towns every year.”….

Amma — Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi

Many people wonder how a little girl from a simple South Indian village came to be known throughout the world as “Amma, the Mother of All.” Motherhood, in its ultimate sense, has nothing to do with bearing a child, but with love, compassion and selflessness. It lies in totally giving one’s self to others.

If we look at Amma’s life, this is what we see—someone who has offered her every thought, word and deed for the benefit of others. Giving is the essence. It’s just that when the homeless come crying for shelter and Amma gives them a house, we call her a “humanitarian.” And when the sorrowful come crying for emotional solace and she gives them love, we call her a “mother.” And when those thirsty for spiritual knowledge come earnestly seeking and she gives them wisdom, we call her a “guru.” This attitude of selflessly serving all creation, knowing others to be extensions of one’s own self, Amma refers to as vishwa matrutvam—universal motherhood. And it is to this pinnacle of human existence that Amma is trying to awaken the world through her life, teachings and darshan [divine embrace].

Express Love Through Action

“True happiness is when the love that is within us finds expression in external activities.”

Due to travel & social restrictions, Amma is unable to d her normal tours at this point in time-

Amma knows that Her Children are sad,  miss traveling and meeting Her and Hold Us All In Her heart and She is sending hugs, support and love!

Due to this, we do not currently arrange any tours to meet Amma. We are looking forward to be able to do so in the future! With the Grace of Paramatman! Thanks! Jai Ma!
