It is only when noble samskaras or culture blend with rejoicing that an occasion becomes a true festival, a celebration.

Only one thing to tell you

“Amma has only one thing to tell you: ‘Our lives should be of some benefit to the world. We should sincerely love and console at least one life, for at least a moment, without any expectations.”

Amma’s Desire

“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.”

Real celebration is forgetting oneself. It is an attitude. We need to have good control over the mind for that.

Become Zero

“One of ancient Bharat’s valuable contributions to the world was the invention of number zero, but now our country needs to add a few things to that zero: zero-poverty, zero-illiteracy, zero-waste, zero-crime, zero-violence against women, etc. If we can make strides in these areas, India can become a role model for many other countries.”
