This hook vividly portrays the Holy Mother’s courage and intense devotion to God in the face of attacks by unsympathetic relatives and hostile detractots who feared the changes brought about by Her universal love. From Her childhood itself, Amma was endowed with an ineffable love for God, and She immersed Herself in that quest, even without a Guru.Treated as a servant by Her family, Amma continued in that role until Her conscious absorption in the bliss of God-Realization made it impossible for Her to discharge Her endless chores. She spent Her time in meditation, devotional singing and dancing, totatlly absorbed in God Consciousness. In due course, sincere seekers of Self-Realization sought Her out in Her temote village in Southern India and found guidance and gained the sttength to walk in the spiritual path. Millions have received comforting reassurance and love.
Here is a mystic accessible to anyone and everyone, with whom you can converse and in whose presence you can feel God. She is humble but firm as the Earth. She is simple yet beautiful like the full moon. She is Love, she is Truth, she is the embodiment of Renunciation and self-sacrifice. She not only teaches but does. She is a giver of everything and a receiver of nothing. She is soft like a flower but hard like a diamond. She is a Great Master and a Great Mother. Such is Mata Amritanandamayi.
She was born in full awareness. Having undergone or displayed (we know not which) rigorous sadhana (spiritual discipline), she then embraced the entire world with love and compassion of indescribable dimensions, the love and compassion that is her very fibre and being.
From her tender childhood she sought out the Divine Mother and Father even without the guidance of a Guru. She withstood the attacks of her kith and kin, of rationalists and miscreants all of whom tried to destroy her. All alone in the midst of this battlefield, she confronted everything unperturbed and with steadfast courage. At the age of 21 she outwardly manifested her state of God-Realisation and at 22 began to initiate seekers of Truth into spiritual life. By the age of 27, the Holy Mother had established the spiritual headquarters of her international Mission in the house of her birth. Five years later there were nearly 20 branch Ashrams throughout India and abroad. At the age of 33, in response to the invitation of her devotees in America and Europe, the Holy Mother made her first world tour inspiring and uplifting many people around the world.
Above all, she has counselled, wiped the tears and removed the burdens of thousands and thousands of people from all walks of life and from every corner of the earth. It is left to you, dear reader, to decide who and what she is through the intuition of your heart...
