WORDS: Wisdom from a Wise Woman

mata1Mata Amritanandamayi – humanitarian and spiritual leader

On Spirituality & Science: Spirituality is not against science. In fact it is the ultimate science. Science without spirituality is blind. Spirituality without science is lame. We need both.

On Love and Faith: Light the lamp of love within you and move forward. When we take each step with good thoughts and a smiling face, all the goodness will come to us and fill our being. Then God cannot possibly stay away from us. He will embrace us.

On The Secrets of the Universe: “When thoughts are reduced; power of the mind and it’s subtlety increases, tunes with the universe. Then you can see the realms beyond the common understanding. When the mind is pure and quiet it becomes one with the universal mind. That mind is like a mirror. The secrets of the Universe will be revealed there.”

Amma’s Desire: “Everyone in the world should be able to sleep without fear, at least for one night. Everyone should be able to eat to his fill, at least for one day. There should be at least one day when hospitals see no one admitted due to violence. By doing selfless service for at least one day, everyone should help the poor and needy. It is Amma’s prayer that at least this small dream be realized.” – –Mata Amritanandamayi Devimata2
