AMMA, MATA AMRITANANDAMAYI
Mata Amritanandamayi, also known as Amma, is known throughout the world for her selfless love and compassion. Her entire life has been dedicated to alleviating the pain of the poor and those suffering physically and emotionally. Amma inspires, uplifts and transforms through her physical embrace, her spiritual wisdom and her worldwide volunteer social-service organization known as Embracing the World ®.
“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 selfless service 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.” – Amma

Amma’s life is her message. In other words, Amma does not teach anything that she herself does not practice. Living from moment to moment in a constant state of supreme happiness, Amma warmly embraces thousands of people day after day, wiping their tears, giving them guidance and offering solace to all who come to her. Amma recommends the path of selfless-service through the example of her own life.
Embracing the World
Embracing the World exists to help alleviate the burden of the world’s poor through helping to meet each of their five basic needs – food, shelter, education, healthcare and livelihood – wherever and whenever possible.
Whether Amma is touring or is in her Spiritual Center in India, she is doing one thing most of the time – that is, receiving one and all who have assembled in her presence with a gentle, warm embrace.
