Celebrating 30 Years:
A Unique Journey of Humaneness and Empathy from Singapore and to the World

Humanitarian, visionary and spiritual leader Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (Amma) will conduct a three day Programme in Singapore between April 6th and 8th at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre.

Organised by Amriteswari Society Singapore, this event marks the 30th anniversary of Amma’s international journeys that began with Singapore in 1987. From Singapore, Amma went to other parts of the world – inspiring, uplifting, and transforming through her embrace, spiritual wisdom and through her, innovative and far reaching global network of humanitarian initiatives known as “Embracing the World.”

Amma has embraced and comforted more than 37 million people the world over, inviting them to get involved in the process of rebuilding a concerned and caring global community.

In the manner and commitment to the idea of giving selflessly, Amma has become a powerful role model to people of diverse age, religious and ethnic groups in Singapore. During the three-day free public event, Amma will conduct spiritual discourses, meditation sessions, devotional singing and darshan (embrace).

In addition, Amriteswari Society will release a commemorative book to celebrate Amma’s maiden journey from India 30 years ago, first to Singapore and then to other countries. This marks the beginning of the Society’s efforts to document the history of Amma’s Programmes in Singapore. In 1987, a few hundred people attended her various programmes held in the different parts of the island at Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple, Sri Perumal Temple, Sri Krishnan Temple and the Sree Narayana Mission. Since then, she has been returning to Singapore almost every year, in response to the need for her compassion and guidance. Her programmes have drawn close to 40,000 people each year.

Indeed, the 30th anniversary is a celebration of an exemplary humanitarian who constantly strives to ensure that conscious and concerted effort is made the world over to alleviate suffering in its countless forms. Food, shelter, healthcare, education, livelihood, environmental conservation and sustainability are some her key areas of focus.

Drawing inspiration from Amma’s phenomenal work, Amriteswari Society continues its efforts in conducting charitable activities and nurturing youth in Singapore. At the special event, the Society will award 100 young school students the Society’s Amrita Bursary. It will also commit to the critical cause of environmental protection and the future through the launch of a Tree Planting endeavour. Additionally the event will witness members of the Inter-Religious Organisation of Singapore uniting in a silent prayer for world peace.
