Toddling in Her Footsteps
We see Amma’s children trying to lead their lives according to the values lived by Her. They are doing selfless service to humankind, engaging in regular and sincere spiritual practices, and incorporating spiritual values and ideals in their day to day lives. For long we have seen these values being lived by Amma, but now slowly and steadily we are seeing that more and more of Her children are also doing the same, with their humble capacities.
yadyadacarati sresthastattadevetaro janah,
sa yatpramanam kurute loka stadnuvartate.
याद्यदाचरति श्रेष्टः तत्तदेवेतरोजनः
सः यत् प्रमाणं कुरुते लोकस्तदनुवर्तते ||
“Whatever a great person does, that very thing others also copy; that which he accepts as authority, people only follow.” – Srimad Bhagavad Gita 3.21
We have the Amrita Kutumbam, Amma’s spiritually inclined householder children; there is the Amrita Yuva Dharma Dhara (AYUDH), the youth wing of the Mata Amritanandamayi Math; we see the Matruvani Campaigners, Amma’s children, young and old alike, who selflessly espouse the cause of spreading Amma’s message; we find the older students who are studying in various institutions run by the MAM, and the younger students, the Balakendram – little children imbibing and practicing Amma’s teachings.
Come let us take a peek into the silent and unnoticed transformation taking place in the lives of many of Amma’s children.
