27 Sep 2016, Amritapuri – Amritavarsham celebrations

The Governor of Kerala, Justice P Sathasivam, who was the Chief Guest at Amritavarsham63, bestowed the 2016 Amrita Keerti Puraskar to Sri. Ambalapuzha Gopakumar. In his address the Governor said that Amma’s work is a continuation of the spiritual leadership provided by great sages of India. Selfless love and compassion has been Amma’s message which is accepted all over the world since Love has no specific language or barrier.

* Amma is one of the few who has given equal importance to intellectual and spiritual pursuits, and used this blend for humanitarian projects. Thus the activities of the Math are focussed on the 5 basic needs of people.

* Amrita University which is ranked as No.1 in the country is an indication of the foresight of Amma to use academics and research for public good. Moreover the educational efforts of the M A Math are spread across India.

* Amma is the greatest ambassador of peace [going] around the world .

* As a First Citizen of Kerala I endorse the suggestion of of Mr Amar Singh and Mr PJ Kurien,Dy Speaker, Rajya Sabha that Amma should be conferred with Bharat Ratna {news}.
