Amma in Mangalore: 'Love and compassion can win over violence'

Mangalore, Feb 10: “Be compassionate, show your love to every soul. The present world is segregated in different ways but our goal should be to render love and care to all. The world is centered around love and one cannot escape from it,” said Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, fondly known as Amma, during Brahmasthana Mahotsava held on behalf of Amritha Sangama 2013 at Amritha Vidyalam, Boloor here on Sunday February 10.

After holding bhajan programme for more than two hours that made her devotees virtually float in spiritual ecstasy, Amma in her 'Satsanga' said colours in rainbow add beauty to rain, and the rainbow is formed by the union of seven colours. Music is incomplete if it is not played with 'raga' and 'tala'. A musician can play music with coordination of heart and mind, the heart is filled with music and the soul with an aim. Everything has its own beauty, the beauty of nature is replete with unity and equality, she said.

"Showing sympathy and concern towards the needy is perfect humanity. Everything gyrates with love, but the present human life is disconnected from love. In every sphere man is divided. He is losing his compassion towards others. Love and compassion can win over everything, be it violence, hatredness or cruelty. Present world is filled with terrorism, violence and natural disasters and so many other problems. The individual’s thought is filled with greed and selfishness and he is losing human values. Every person expects others to follow morality, but does not follow it himself," she said.

“In today's world aged parents are sent to old age homes, instead of being given love, care and sympathy. Joint families have been divided into nuclear families. In future if children do not get the love and care of grandparents then they will surely curse. There are people who do not have money to buy medicine. If a person wants to live his life happily he should stay away from alcohol and lust. Every individual should be satisfied with what he  has,” she said.

“The younger generation is not aware of virtues like love, concern and compassion for othes. They fail to imbibe courage and spirituality in life. Only spirituality can lead an individual in the right path. We are now dwelling in segregated islands instead of living happily together. We should not be isolated islands but should become chains of relationships,” she added.

On this occasion Krishna Palemar, former minister, Amithakala, deputy mayor, Vijaykumar of Pollution Control Board, Ashokan of Security Services and Naryanan of Kavitha Residency felicitated Mata Amritanandamayi Devi.

Mata Amritanandamayi offered scholarships to 60 students and pension funds to devotees.

Ganesh Hosabettu, former mayor thanked the gathering.

Thousands of devotees flocked to the venue and sought Amma's blessings.

    Amma is still a million $ question to me. Keralites worship her like a Godess,at the same time some people still have a doubt that how she can attract so much people.I became speechless when I saw massive crowd waiting for her when she visited US,Germany,UK..
    I remember when she visited Mangalore last time, her devotees cleaned Hampankatta and Bus stand for full 2 days..This social work might be the reason why people love her..

    I think this is the right time to forget the religion and apply these two great principles of life and live forever.
    Love the Lord your God(the creator of the universe) with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’
    The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
    It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs

    Great Soul in humanity and for the good of humanity.
    What Amma says is true and in the history it is already proved. 2000 years ago Lord God Jesus Christ preached the same and practiced in His life and sacrificed Himself for humanity . Lord Jesus made said clearly that "whoever loves one another, shows mercy to others, be compassionate on others and willing to sacrifice once life for others sake- the one is truly the follower of Me." No one else preached so great either before or after Lord Jesus. So whoever follows love and preaches the same are definitely Godly.

    Amma is an unconditional love,care and sacrifice. I saw in western counties, how Amma brings people of all races irrespective of gender under one roof with her love and divine hug. She is truly devine

    "OM AMRITANDESHWARIYE NAMAH"
    IAM SO FORTUNATE TODAY THAT AMMA IS WITH US,HER BLESSINGS HAS INSPIRED ME TO TAKE POSITIVE STEPS IN MY LIFE.

    YES ITS TRUE LOVE CAN WIN OVER VOILENCE.
    FIRST OF ALL WHAT IS LOVE? I THINK 99.9% PEOPLES ARE IGNORANT ABOUT LOVE.LOVE MEANS SELFLESS.(selfishness is the chief sin,thinking of ourselves first,he who thinks,"I will get to heaven before others,i will get mukti before others"is the selfish man.the unselfish man says i will be last,i do not care to go to heaven,i will even go to hell if by doing so i can help my brothers)
    "LOVE IS FEARLESS"(EX:a mother of two childrens walks on the way if dog barks what she will do?she will run &try to hide to be safe.if same mother walks on the road with her child if lion attack her child she will fight with lion,because of pure love with her child)
    "LOVE MEANS SACRIFICE"(do u ask anything from ur childrens in return for what u have given them,i have seen many devotees who r going to temple,church and pray god,o god give me health,wealth etc.is this love?it can not be love,love will never ask anything,it will give everything.(ex:mothers love)
    "LOVE IS UNATTACHED'(LORD krishna says'look at me arjuna'if i stop from work for one moment,the whole universe will die.i have nothing to gain from work,iam the one LORD,but why do i work?because i love the world.God is unattached because he lovesreal love makes us unattached.whereever there is attachment there will be only physical attachment.something that attracts two bodies nearer and nearer all the time& if they can not get near enough,produces pain,but where there is real love,it does not rest on physical attachment at all.such lovers may b thousand miles away from one another,but their love b all the same.it will never die & will never produce pain.
    LOVE NEVER FAILS MY FRIENDS TODAY OR TOMORROW OR AGES AFTER TRUTH WILL CONQUER.LOVE SHALL WIN THE VICTORY BECAUSE LOVE IS TRUTH,LOVE IS GOD.....SARVE JANO SUKHINO BHAVANTU.....RAJIV.T.SHETTY.

    She is a beacon of light in today's India of violence and hate speeches. She has single handedly built more charitable institutions (like hospitals,colleges,schools etc) than any state goverment (www.amma.org). Long live Amma.

    Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, fondly known as Amma, is saga of un-conditional love, and is a great unifying force!
    She has mass following not only from India but from all across
    the universe!
    Her appeal may reverse and heal the misguided lot, who are influenced by hatred mongers and unable to come out of that syndrome!

    Appreciate Amma's preaching about peace and harmony. As she rightly pointed out we people need to stop dwelling in segregated islands and live unitedly.

    In the coastal belt, i hope Bajrangis, Senas will understand her golden words and leave the path of violence, hatredness or cruelty.
