“We are all beads strung together on the same thread of love.” - Amma
We conduct regular monthly Kirtan & Meditation sessions with an aim of sharing a drop of bliss and inner well being. We also practice and teach basic meditation during the session.
Amma New Zealand Incorporated is a charitable organization founded to promote the message of peace, love and compassion inspired by the world renowned spiritual leader, humanitarian and visionary Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, also known as ‘Amma’ (Mother). The Western world calls her – ‘ The Hugging Saint’.
“Everyone in the world should be able to sleep without fear, at least for one night. Everyone should be able to eat to his fill, at least for one day. There should be at least one day when hospitals see no one admitted due to violence. By doing selfless service for at least one day, everyone should help the poor and needy. It is Amma’s prayer that at least this small dream be realised.” - Amma
Amma teaches to live a life of service in order to help uplift the lives of other living beings.
Inspired by the humanitarian initiatives of AMMA, a global network of regional organizations works together under Embracing the World® - The focus being to alleviate the burden of the world's poor by helping to meet the five basic needs - food, shelter, healthcare, education and livelihood.
