AMMA RETURNS TO VISIT AUSTRALIA IN APRIL


NEW DELHI, 9 MAR. Celebrated humanitarian and spiritual leader Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi will return to visit Australia from 16 - 28 April. Affectionately known as Amma, she will conduct free public programs starting in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and the Gold Coast, as well as retreats in Melbourne and the Sunshine Coast.

“Amma has been coming to Australia for 30 years”, says James Conquest, barrister and director of the M.A. Centre (Aust). Foundation.

Touring India and internationally nine months per year, Amma has endeared herself to millions. In fact, with her unique signature act of compassion, her Darshan, she has given her tender motherly embrace an estimated 38 million times - accepting all people, irrespective of race, beliefs, religion, gender or status, including babies, whole families, the aged and infirm, celebrities and downtrodden, rich and poor alike.

Amma’s message of peace and unity through patience, tolerance and forgiveness resonates with those who meet her. “My religion is love”, she says simply.

Amma is transforming the lives of innumerable people globally. From poor, humble beginnings in a Kerala fishing village, South India, Amma has established a vast Non-Government Organization, ’Embracing the World’. It is accredited with special United Nations consultative status in recognition of the rapid responses and effective relief efforts in disaster zones like the 2004 tsunami, Hurricane Katrina and the Bihar floods.

Nobel Peace Prize laureate and founder of Grameen Bank, Muhammad Yunnus, noted that, “Amma has done more work than many governments have ever done for their people. Her contribution is enormous.”

In recognition of her comprehensive charitable projects and efforts to promote peace and harmony, Amma has received several international awards, such as the prestigious UN ‘Gandhi-King Award for Non-Violence’.

On 16 March, Amma’s Australian Ashram at 842 Frankston-Dandenong Rd. Carrum Down, Melbourne will host a fundraising dinner and film screening of ‘Kundun’. Amma will be in Melbourne 16 – 20 April. All details are at www.ammaaustralia.org.au
