AMMA mother of bliss

Amma (Mata Amritanandamayi Devi) The Mother of Immortal Bliss tells it like it is

Is God a Man or a Woman ? The answer to this question is neither—- God is That. But if you must give God a gender, God is more female than male, for he is contained in She.

The Divine is present in everyone, in all beings, in everything. Like space it is everywhere, all pervading, all powerful, all knowing. The Divine is the principle of Life, the inner light of consciousness, and pure bliss—–. It is our very own Self.

Life is a mystery. You cannot understand it unless you surrender, for your intellect cannot grasp its expansive and infinite nature, its real meaning and fullness. Bow down low and be humble; then you will know life’s meaningammayoung

There is a rhythm to everything in the cosmos. The wind, the rain, the waves, the flow of our breath and our heartbeat—everything has a rhythm. Similarly, there is a rhythm in life. Our thoughts and actions create the rhythm and melody of our lives. When the rhythm of our thoughts is lost, it reflects in our actions. This will, in turn, throw off the very rhythm of life. Today, this is what we are seeing all around us.

The first step in spiritual life is to have compassion. A person who is kind and loving never needs to go searching for God. God rushes toward any heart that beats with compassion-it is God’s favorite place.

She who has no birth or death, and yet is the cause of all births and deaths, is Mother.

The creation and the Creator are not two… When we see Mother Nature as the embodiment of God we will automatically serve and protect her.

Children, divine love is our true nature. it is shining in each and every one of us. When your heart is full of innocent love, you are absent; the ego is absent. In that state, only love is present; individuality disappears, and you become one with the Divine.

If the sun shines down into a thousand different pots filled with water, the reflections are many, but they are each reflecting the same sun. Similarly, if we come to know who we truly are, we will see ourselves in all people. When this understanding arises, we learn to consider others, overlooking their weaknesses. From that, pure love will dawn from within.

The sweetness and bliss bestowed by desireless devotion is something unique. Though advaita (the state of non-duality) is the ultimate Truth, Mother sometimes feels that it is all meaningless and would instead like to remain just an innocent child in front of God.

 amma

There is a child
within everyone.
The desire to search
for this child is felt
by all living beings…
This child like innocence
deep within you is God.
