Amma is an internationally known humanitarian and spiritual leader. I met her in June of 1989 and have spent time with her every year since then. From time to time, I share Amma quotes on my blog. This is one of those times.
In real prayer there is nothing to ask, nothing to demand, no suggestions. Real prayer is sincere surrender.
When going to bed recollect the day’s activities and try to discriminate between the good and bad.
Never be depressed seeing the obstacles on your path. You have the lamp of faith with you. Light it.
The attitude “I will only accept success” is wrong. Learn to also accept the responsibility of defeat.
If we look at the world with eyes of wisdom and give solace to the suffering through compassionate hands, we will surely reach the shore of peace and bliss.
