For the past 58 years now, the world has been blessed with the loving, compassionate touch of our beloved Amma. The number of hearts Amma has touched is impossible to say. Her tender embrace has literally consoled millions upon millions. Each September 27 , the anniversary of Amma’s birth, the world over resounds with prayers of gratitude. I would like to extend to you a heartfelt invitation to participate in this year’s celebrations, which will be taking place on Saturday the 26th and Sunday the 27 of September in Amritapuri, Kollam District, Kerala.

Furthermore, the Mata Amritanandamayi Math will take this opportunity to extend the reach of its charitable humanitarian services. I sincerely hope you will be there.
