Whenever Amma is asked about Her religion, She replies that Her religion is Love. She does not ask anyone to believe in God or to change their faith, but only to inquire into their own real nature, and to believe in themselves.
In modern times God has often become an abstract idea, a vague conception of the intellect. If attaining to the highest dimension of our humanity is a path towards understanding the love of God, or Truth, then in Amma we discover a steadfast guide. Here is a Mother, who pours out Her soul in sheer abundance. Hers is a love that purifies, that subdues and elevates, and lets us glimpse the splendour of our true Self. Myriad are the facets of our personality that scintillate in ever-new expressions, and which radiates the perfection of the heart steeped in Truth.
For millions across the world, their meeting with Amma proved to be the turning point in their life, a timeless moment of self discovery and inner transformation. For some, one glimpse, one darshan, has often been enough to inspire them to seek more than the mundane, materialistic ways and quest for something deeper, for fulfilling, in the higher truths of existence. Such transformations Amma is effecting in Eastern as well as Western culture. It is the path towards enlightened selflessness, the key to the higher dimensions of human life.
Amma's ultimate message is one of values, where the development of an expansive heart dominates every sphere of life so that inclusiveness, tolerance, listening to others, solidarity, and dharma, are the natural outcome of our love nature. Where the capacity of our hearts and intellects are balanced, where the scientific, information and technological revolutions are made to serve and protect humanity and the earth. Amma, the supreme mother, spearheads a technological movement for modernising Indian society. In doing so, She shows us this wonderful, natural equipoise that flows from one established in the highest Self.
Amma teaches that the Divine exists in everything, sentient and insentient. Perceiving this underlying unity in all things is not only the essence of spirituality but also the means to end all suffering. Amma's teachings are universal.
