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 .
Everyone in the world should be able to sleep without fear, at least for one night.Everyone should be able to eat to his fill, at least for one day.There should be at least one day when hospitals see no one admitted due to violence. By doing self-less services for at least one day, everyone should help the poor and needy. It is AMMA’S prayer that at least this small dream be realised.
(Spiritual Get-together) forms the core of the society’s activities which held on Sundays from 8:00 am to 10:30 am, Satsang is an opportunity for Amma’s children to come together for group prayer, Bhajan (Devotional singing), Reading of the day and Meditation.
