The Wealth of the Poor

18 December 2003, Kozhikode, KeralaMany of the devotees in Kozhikode are very simple people. Rural villagers and tribal people come for Amma’s darshan, saving what little money they have just to travel here. Kozhikode is yet another example of how Amma is touching the lowest substratum of society with Her infinite compassion and all-embracing Love, […]

Amma’s Brindavan

15 December 2003,Amritapuri A lone butterfly danced happily on Her garland as Amma stood gazing at Her children in all Her divine magnificence. Thus the first Devi Bhava in Amritapuri since early September came to a close this morning at 11:30 am. Yesterday morning Amma began giving darshan at 9:45 am, and stayed until 2:15 […]

20-21 Dec 2002 – Kozhikode As always, Amma’s Kozhikode programs are burgeoning with life and love–just like Amma Herself. Somehow, Amma found time to give a press conference in Her room, even though darshan had finished only at 4 am and She had to be back out to begin the day’s program by 11 the […]

The hungry hands of Kozhikode

Amma stood there and looked out over all those faces, all those hands, and the only way to say what happened is: love poured from Her Face, Her Eyes, Her Self.

Mother’s day

13 May, 2001, Amritapuri During the last few days before Mother leaves for any extended tour, especially one to foreign countries, as if determined to have a final long swallow of water before crossing the desert, people converge on the oasis of the ashram. The crowds are huge. Baths start at about two thirty in […]

Where There’s No End to Love’s Faces

20 December 2000, Calicut Many of us have travelled the globe with Amma, and we have found that each place She goes to has its own “flavour.” If you were to ask people what distinguishes Calicut from other places, you would almost certainly hear an emphasis on the devotion and enthusiasm – not to mention […]

This year they did the same – but something was exceptionally different. […]
