Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, President of India

I want to share with you what I have learned from Amritapuri: Giving. That is the message I get from Amritapuri. Go on giving. You can give. It’s not only money. You can share knowledge. You can remove the pain. And you can even go to the person who is suffering. Every one of us — the rich and poor — can give. There is no greater message than Amma’s giving to all the people of this region, and Kerala, and India, and to the world.

—Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, President of India, While inaugurating Amrita Setu in 2006, Amritapuri
