Mata Amritanandmayi, popularly known the world over as ‘Amma’ and the ‘Hugging Mother,’ is believed to represent purity of spirit. Her teachings have captured the minds and hearts of countless men, women and children of every ethnic and cultural vicissitude in every continent on earth.

Christened Sudhamani at birth (at Parayakadavu, a fishing village in the Quilon district of Kerala), she showed compassion and understanding from an early age.

She is known for her philanthropic work as well as her innate knowledge of almost everything that a human being could seek.

Centres advocating her teachings have been established in Australasia, Middle East, Africa, North and South America and Europe.

Shraddhamrita received his initiation as ‘Brahamacharya’ in 1997, making him equivalent to a Monk in the Hindu religion. A graduate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, he relinquished his career in the software industry to serve Amma. He is involved in coordinating scientific research and social welfare projects at the Amrita University, established in the name of Amma with campuses in Amritapuri, Cochin, Coimbatore, Bangalore and Mysore.
