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.
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. (I was going to add except in 2020 but then I remembered I was with her in India in January 2020!) From time to time, I share Amma quotes on my blog. This is one of those times.
Traveling by bus, we see many things on the way and just let them pass by. Watch the thoughts of your minds in the same way.
Never forget God. Never forget your real Source. Never move away from the real center within you.
In times of tragedies, our duty is to lend a helping hand to those in grief and thus light lamps of kindness and compassion.
Grace is the factor that brings the right result to your actions, at the right time and in the right proportion.
Lessen the quantity of unnecessary thoughts and allow more space for the energy of love to flow within you.

I’ve seen quite a few Amma quotes recently that I have wanted to share. I decided I would put them all in one post!
Having the freedom to decide how to act, we should exercise the faculty of discrimination to choose the right actions and attitude.
Pray: Let the music of peace and harmony be heard everywhere.
It is pure love and selfless service that sustains this universe.
We must cultivate a spiritual culture that respects and worships the sanctity of all beings.
Patience, constant enthusiasm and firm determination are necessary factors for success.
My daughter sent me a quote a few days ago that made me laugh, but it also made me think. I have found it helpful and so have some of the people to whom I have sent it. I tried to track down the author but have been unsuccessful in that endeavor.
I’ve also noticed that the quote comes in several forms. I have decided to share it even though I don’t know who wrote it…. because of the importance of the message. I am using the form that I was sent and that I like the best.
Your grandparents were called to war.
You’re being called to sit on your couch.
You can do this.
Pure love makes you feel as light as a flower.
You won’t feel any heaviness or burden. Ego creates the burden.
If you wish to serve, if you have compassion for people,
if you have any love for the world, step forward bravely.
Amma will be in Oakland from November 22-26 and in Detroit from November 29 to December 2. For more information go to: https://amma.org/meeting-amma/ammas-north-america-tour.
