“It is always a special feeling to come back to the campus where you spent your college days. Being present here is a great feeling and to be a part of Amma’s Birthday celebrations is surely a bonanza.
I met Amma for the first time in 2004, but I didn’t have clear idea about Amma or her activities at that time. I used to wonder why millions of people are attracted towards her. I understood the essence and grace of Amma only after I joined the Amrita School of Biotechnology.
I personally saw her doing service and realized the inner truth of Her words. That attracted me spiritually towards her. She has some kind of divine power which cannot be explained. She radiates the essence of spirituality, honesty, truthfulness and selfless service. Every one of us should respond to her call in a like manner.
After completion of my studies from Amrita, my attitude towards the world has completely changed. I learned to look at things from the other person’s perspective and developed an empathy for all. I found self satisfaction by serving others and by helping the poor.
I always come to Amritapuri at the time of Amma’s Birthday and contribute my small part to her infinite service in order to earn Her Grace.
We are all children of Amma and should unite to serve the less fortunate in this world. Only then we would have done our duty in life. ”
