We invite you to Amritavarsham64

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 64th Birthday Celebrations of Her Holiness Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi—our Beloved Amma. The celebrations will take place at the Amrita University Campus in Amritapuri, Kerala, on the evening- of Sunday, the 8th of October, and on the morning of Monday, the 9th of October 2017. We would be overjoyed if you would be with us on this auspicious occasion.

For 64 years now, Amma has been blessing the world with her compassion and selflessness. Holding the sick, the poor and the lonely directly to her heart… drying their tears with her own hands… doing everything she can to uplift them… Amma’s life is an expression of a Love we had heretofore only read about. Seeing only oneness and unity, it is a Love that cuts across all boundaries—those of nation, of politics, of religion, of language, of caste. It is a Love that embraces people of all ages, all backgrounds, all walks of life. It is a Love that inspires everyone it touches to strive to expand his or her heart and mind. It is a Love that makes people ask themselves, “What more could I be doing to help others?”

Each year the devotees and disciples of Amma come together on Amma’s birthday in order to celebrate the advent of this Love into their lives. The celebrations are joyous, drawing lakhs of people from all over the world. They are verily an expression of the mantra of which Amma’s entire life has been a manifestation: Om lokah samasthah sukhino bhavantu—”May everyone everywhere be happy!”

Ever in Amma’s Service,
Swami Amritaswarupananda Puri
Vice-Chairman, Board of Trustees
