"We should tell children while they are very young that there is a power known as God who controls everything. If we teach a child to remember this divinity in all circumstances of life, that child will be able to keep his or her inner poise in every situation, whether it be victory or defeat." — Amma  

Our inspiration is Amma also known as Mata Amritanandamayi. Love, compassion, empathy and tolerance--under the pressures of modern life, these qualities have all but disappeared. Through Her loving embrace and charitable activities, Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (affectionately known as Amma or Mother) is healing the heart of the world, rekindling love and mutual respect, and awakening people to their fundamental oneness.

Through Her extraordinary acts of love and self-sacrifice, Amma has endeared Herself to millions. Tenderly caressing everyone who comes to Her, holding them close to Her heart in a loving embrace, Amma shares boundless love with all. Be they young or old, sick or healthy, rich or poor--everyone who comes to Her receives the same unconditional love.

Amma's compassion crosses all barriers of nationality, race, caste and religion. She has initiated a vast network of charitable activities, which is drawing attention throughout the world. At the root of these services lies Amma's teaching that the Divine exists in everything--in every person, plant and animal.

Amma has inspired innumerable humanitarian activities all over the world. Some of them are free food and clothing programs, charitable hospitals, hospices, disaster relief programs, free homes for the poor and the needy, medical camps, orphanage, schools, educational institutions, widows' pension scheme, free legal advice, preservation of nature and so on. The list is long and growing everyday.

Amma Say's

  1. Your mind isn’t prepared to know the Supreme, but a teacher can help make it ready.

    Amma's teachings are universal. Whenever She is asked about Her religion, She replies that Her religion is Love. She does not ask anyone to believe in God or to change their faith, but only to inquire into their own real nature and to believe in themselves.

  2. Both science without spirituality, and spirituality without science, are incomplete. Unfortunately, society is trying to segregate humankind into spiritual people and scientific people. When science doesn’t give you the right answers, turn to spirituality. We spirituality doesn’t give you the right answers, turn to science.

  3. Education is not only to help us live a comfortable life of plenty. When our plans fall apart, when we face failure and loss, education should help us retain our mental equipoise, self-confidence and positive attitude, so that we can continue to move forward in life.

  4. We should be the master and the mind the servant. However today, these roles have become reversed.

  5. We cannot draw a circle without a center point. Similarly, our lives will never become complete without the center point of love.

  6. It is not enough to provide our children money and comforts. We need to instill in them spiritual culture and universal values; these are the real wealth.

  7. Whether God exists may be a topic of hot debate. However no one can deny the presence of suffering people in the world today. Serve them selflessly; love them with your whole heart.

  8. This world is like a flower. Each nation is a petal. If one petal is infected, it will soon affect all the other petals, and the life and beauty of the flower will be destroyed.

  9. Just as we manage the external world, it is equally important to learn how to manage the internal world.

  10. These day’s we have to specify a school as being one that provides a ‘values-based’ education. This implies that we no longer consider values an integral part of education.

  11. We spend our entire lives studying the external world and the lives of other people; we never try to learn about ourselves, the inner world.

  12. We often hear people indignantly asking others, ‘Don’t you know who I am?’ However if, instead, we could just ask ourselves, ‘Do I know who I am?’ and perform sincere self-inquiry, we could find a permanent solution to all of life’s problems.

  13. If, in any part of the world, thousands of people are dying of hunger or suffering in poverty, it is a matter of shame for all nations.
