The world should know
that it is possible to live his life
selfless love and service
to devote to the closest. Amma
Amma was born in 1953 in a village in a remote area
Coastal area in Kerala (South India)
born. Already noticed as a little girl
the people around them that they
spent many hours in deep meditation on the beach.
She also composed devotionally
Songs and was often singing in a mood
encountered divine adoration. Despite hers
of tender age, their compositions testified to
of remarkable depth and wisdom. In old age
by the age of nine, Amma's mother became very much
ill and Amma was forced to go to school
left to help around the house and look around
to take care of her seven siblings. One of their
Duties was to go from house to house to
Collecting scraps of food for the cows. Thereby
she became with the intense poverty of her village community
and faced the world.
All those in need that Amma met
she brought food and clothing from home.
Nothing could stop her, not even them
Scolding and punishment from their family. To the
To comfort people in need, Amma hugged
you. In response to their loving affection
they started to call her "Amma" (mother),
and vice versa, Amma called them her children.
AMMA DOES NOT DEMAND ANYONE
TO GO TO HIS RELIGION

THE DEPTH OF YOUR OWN FAITH
ENTRY AND AFTER
THELIVE SEN PRINCIPLES.
embracing the world ® | AMMA | 6th
Amma was deeply affected by the suffering that
she met. Hinduism says that
Individual suffers because of his karma -
that is, in response to his acting in
the past. Amma agreed
agreed with this concept, but did not want to
as a justification for accepting nothing
to take action against grievances. Amma
pondered the principles of karma until
she came to an even deeper insight:
"When other people because of their
Suffering karmas, it is not our duty to them
to help in their pain and suffering? "
From this simple but deep conviction
out - that it is the responsibility of
let each of us shake hands with those
who are less favored by fate -
Amma dedicated her life to service and
loving care for all beings.
One expression of this is her maternal embrace,
with which she considers all who are with her
In Amma's culture it was a 14 year old
Girls forbidden, other people,
especially men, to touch. Though theirs
Parents were against it, Amma continued to follow
her heart. She later explained, “I'll take
not true whether it is a man or
a woman acts. I see everyone as part of mine
own self. An uninterrupted one
Stream of love flows from me to the whole
Creation. This is my innate disposition.
A doctor has a duty to treat patients
to treat. So it is my duty, sufferers
To give consolation. "

Each of Embracing the World's projects
found its origin in needs
of the poor who came to Amma for her heart
to pour out and on her shoulder
to cry out. Shared more than 25 years ago
the administrators of an orphanage Amma with,
that they run out of funds
stand. They reported to Amma that they were
sooner or later they will be forced to
to send the children out into the streets. Amma
used some of the money for one
Meditation hall planned in her ashram
was to ensure the care of the children.
With that, ETW was brought into being.
Today Amma's birthplace in Kerala is the seat
from Amma's spiritual and humanitarian organization,
the Mata Amritanandamayi Math

houses 3,000 residents and is the destination of
thousands of visitors every day

Amma has more than 32 million in her life
People hugged and comforted. On the
Ask where it gets the energy from, like that
to help many people and at the same time
such a large humanitarian organization
to build and lead, she replies:
“Where there is true love, it happens
all without effort. "
Amma will give darshan for as long as she has strength to give herself
to accept all who come to her as long as they are hers
Can put a comforting hand on their shoulder. It's Ammas
Desire to be loving to people until the end of their days

our time. To this day, she has rounded off every program
by hugging all participants.
When asked by the BBC why they are people
hug, Amma replied: "Would you ask a river,
why does it flow? It's just its nature to flow. Just like that
it is Amma’s nature, maternal love for her children
to express. ”The unique way to express unreserved love
to express it is called Amma's darshan. This can
without interruption for up to twenty or more hours a day
That maternal hug that has been going on for the past 40 years
Repeated hour after hour, day after day, became a catalyst
and symbol of the growing humanitarian movement that
is now called "Embracing the World".
