Mata Amritanandamayi (AMMA)

Mata Amritanandamayi is known throughout the world as Amma, or Mother, for her selfless love and compassion toward all beings. Her entire life has been dedicated to alleviating the pain of the poor, and those suffering physically and emotionally.

Amma inspires, uplifts, and transforms through her embrace, her wisdom and through her charities, known as Embracing the World.®

She has embraced and comforted more than 32 million people. When asked where she gets the energy to help so many people, Amma answered: “Where there is true love, everything is effortless.”

While Amma is widely regarded as one of India’s foremost spiritual leaders, Amma says that her religion is love. She has never asked anyone to change their religion but only to contemplate the essential principles of their own faith and to try to live accordingly.

A devotee of Amma for almost 20 years, Meghan Madhavi Burke is the Amma Satsang Coordinator for Athens, Ga. and these inspirational gatherings are held at the Healing Arts Centre.

Satsang is a Sanskrit word meaning a close association or companionship with a Self-Realized Soul. It can also refer to discussion or hearing of 75943_452930728086300_91999311_nspiritual truths expressed by Self-Realized Masters. In the scorching heat of worldliness, being in the presence of a Master or a Master’s teachings is like a cool breeze in the shade of a huge tree.

Please join us the first Sunday of every month at 5:30pm  as we gather with some of Amma’s longtime devotees for an inspiring evening of prayer, puja (sacred ceremony), meditation, fellowship, and song at the Healing Arts Centre.

The Amma Atlanta Satsang Coordinator is Keshav Kumaran and those wishing to attend in Atlanta on the 2nd or 4th Saturday of the month are encouraged to contact him for details at  (770) 309-6268.
