Like her darshan, the range of Amma’s charitable activities is stunning in its all-embracing magnitude. Wherever She travels in India, dignitaries of all sections form the society applaud Amma for her noble efforts and some even admit to feeling shame that their governments cannot do as well. Amma’s programmes are multi-faceted with several goals: to help the needy; to bring in modern technology and to inspire compassion and a sense of oneness with our fellow human beings, whatever their background may be.
Amma teaches that selfless service with compassion is the foundation of all other spiritual practices. She upholds the ancient tradition of charity, where caring for others is the process through which the character of everyone involved is purified. This spiritually inspired approach lends beauty and charm to social welfare. Amma’s children manage her projects with the faith that they will be transformed through their service to Love.
Service for the sake of service is like love for love’s sake – at the peak of every sacrifice made in love, is the source of pure joy. So, who is giving and who is receiving in this seemingly endless, inspirational gift of Amma to all of us? Like her darshan, it is open for everyone to be so embraced. see more at www.embracingtheworld.org
The beauty and charm of selfless love and service should not die away from the face of this earth. The world should know that a life of dedication is possible, that a life inspired by love and service to humanity is possible. – Amma
