Mata Amritanandamayi

The sun shines down, and its image reflects in a thousand different pots filled with water. The reflections are many, but they are each reflecting the same sun. Similarly, when we come to know who we truly are, we will see ourselves in all people.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
True happiness is when the love that is within us finds expression in external activities.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
...love is our true nature. When we do not express love in our words and actions it is like honey hidden in a rock.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Our compassion and acts of selflessness take us to the deeper truths.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Children, don't waste a single second.
Serve others, above all the poor,
expecting nothing in return.
Just as the person who offers God flowers
is the first to enjoy their fragrance,
the person who offers compassion
is the first to receive its blessing.
Wherever a heart beats
with compassion:
God is there.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We should never forget that after every night, there is a dawn. We should never lose our optimistic faith.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A musk deer searches for the source of the fragrance of musk, but it won't find it because the fragrance comes from within itself. Bliss is not to be found outside of us; it exists within us.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Compassion can shoulder the suffering of the entire world without feeling the slightest bit of pain.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When someone is full of Love and Compassion, he cannot draw a line between two countries, two faiths or two religions.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The greatest tragedy in life is not death; the greatest tragedy takes place when our talents and capabilities are underutilized and allowed to rust while we are living.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Smiling is one of the highest forms of meditation.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Pure love is the best medicine for the modern world. This is what is lacking in all societies. The root cause of all problems, from personal problems to global problems is the absence of love. Love is the binding factor, the unifying factor. Love creates the feeling of oneness among people. It unifies a nation and its people. Love creates a sense of unity while hatred causes division. Egotism and hatred cuts people's minds into pieces. Love should rule. There is no problem which love cannot solve.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Pure love removes all negative feelings. Destroying all selfishness, it expects nothing but gives anything. Pure love is a constant giving up- giving up of everything that belongs to you. What really belongs to you? Only the ego. Love consumes in its flames all preconceived ideas, prejudices and judgments, all those things which stem from the ego. Pure love is nothing but the emptying of the mind of all its fears and the tearing off of all masks. It exposes the Self as it is.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Happiness comes from the dissolution of the mind, not from external objects. Through meditation we can achieve everything including bliss, health, strength, intelligence and vitality. But it should be practiced properly in solitude and with care.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If the goal is to realize the Supreme Being, you should become egoless. That requires self-effort. The sadhak should work hard. He should pray sincerely for the removal of the negative tendencies. This prayer is not to achieve anything or to fulfill any desires. It is to go beyond all achievements. It is to transcend all desires.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It should be for satsang that we go to spiritual centers. By going there, people who are involved in the world can attain peace and concentration. The concentration gained when one goes there cannot be achieved if one sits at home. Even though the breeze blows everywhere, coolness will be felt more if we sit in the shade of a tree. In the same way, although God is all-pervading, this presence will clearly shine in certain places more than others. That is the greatness of satsang. Satsang is the best thing for spiritualMore Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is no short cut to God; sadhana must be performed regularly and with devotion. It is our own effort which will enable us to experience the grace of God which is being showered on us all the time. Therefore, whatever spare time you get, use it to seek God. If you create peace in your own heart by doing sadhana, then that will have a positive effect on your family, your work and so on. The peace and love of God will overflow out of your heart and encourage others to move on the right path.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Nobody likes to let go of the ego- it is so precious to everyone. However, once you have attained a state of egolessness, the world won't disappear, as you may think it will. The world will continue, but a change takes place within you. Something is uncovered. You start seeing everything with the wonder and innocence of a child.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Real life is developed from within. Real living means that the soul expresses itself through all one's thoughts, words and actions. A person becomes fearless once he understands the nature of the imperishable soul.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Today people live to work rather than work for a living. They have forgotten their true goal in life. Subsequently they have forgotten their dharma. There is no communication between hearts, there is no sharing. Having lost contact with other's hearts, we become totally isolated. But in truth we are not isolated islands, we are links that form one chain.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Many people meditate in order that a third eye may open. For that they feel they should close their two physical eyes. They thereby become blind to the world. But the fact is that the third eye will never open. We can never close our eyes to the world in the name of spirituality. Self-realization is the ability to see ourselves in all beings. This is the third eye through which you see, even while your two eyes are open. We should be able to love and serve others, seeing ourselves in them. This is the fulfillment of spMore Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Look at the optimism of Nature. Nothing can stop it. Only the ego makes humans pessimistic, and this causes suffering.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Meditation increases your vitality and strengthens your intelligence... your mental clarity and health improve. You acquire the patience and fortitude to face any problem in life. So, meditate! Only through meditation will you find the treasure you are seeking.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
"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.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Fundamentally, what everyone needs is mental strength and confidence, to manage the mind, just as we manage the outside world.More Mata Amritanandamayi [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
