Sri Mata Amritanandamayi, known throughout the world as «Amma», has served the world-community for decades, imparting wisdom, strength and inspiration.
Through her extraordinary acts of love, inner strength and self-sacrifice, Amma has inspired thousands to follow in her path of service to humanity.
Amma has travelled the world for more than 30 years, bringing love, hope and peace through her talks, and darshan – her signature embrace. Accessible to one and all, she has hugged an estimated 37 million people worldwide, and inspired a global volunteer-based humanitarian movement, Embracing the World, to help alleviate the burden of the world’s poor by meeting their basic needs – food, shelter, education, healthcare and livelihood. ETW also works in the fields of environmental conservation, innovative research for the needy and helps populations in the aftermath of major disasters.
Honouring her contributions to the effort in spreading world peace and harmony, Amma has received many international awards including the Gandhi-King Award for non-violence, at the UN headquarters in Geneva in 2002.
