Sri. L.K. Advani, Deputy Prime Minister of India

I regard Amritavarsham50 [Amma’s 50th Birthday Celebrations] as something unprecedented, as people from 191 UN countries have come together. While agriculture energizes, industry enriches and knowledge enlightens, spirituality personified in Amma elevates us.

“There are people who can expound eloquently on all the scriptures and explain all their nuances, but rare are those who live the life described in these scriptures. Sri Mata Amritanandamayi belongs to this rare category of enlightened souls.”

– Sri. L.K. Advani

Honourable Deputy Prime Minister of India
