Swamini Nirupamamrita Prana

Swamini Nirupamamrita Prana


We take pride in the fact that we belong to the great nation "Bharat", the name probably derived from the great epic, "Mahabharata". The word "Bha" means "light" and "Ratha" means "One who revels in it”. Thus Bharath is the illuminator for the whole world and hence all the nations look upon us, as a role model, especially in the sphere of spirituality. Our nation has a rich background of ancient culture about, which we are not aware of. This hidden, forgotten cultural heritage should be awakened in all of us, " Bharatians".

Who is better than a Guru to awaken this inner greatness in us? The word "Gu" means "Ignorance" and "ru" means "remover". Our culture has great reverence and regards for teachers and treats them as equivalent to God. Though the Guru Kula way of imparting knowledge is long lost in our society, we at Amrita strive to revive this system which is inherent in us to a certain extent. We try to establish a loving, caring and long lasting bond between the teacher --- the giving end and the student --- the receiving end , so that there is an uninterrupted flow of knowledge. Amrita trains the young minds to receive this knowledge properly, through the traditional practices of Yoga, Pranayama, Bhajan, Performing arts etc., so that they can withstand all distractions, challenges and prepare themselves to receive this nectarine knowledge which will eventually make them a good and great human being.

With the blessings of our Sadguru Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, who herself is a role model of whatever she preaches, we are happy to mould the future generation of our Nation using the tools of love and discipline. I pray to the Divine mother to shower her blessings and give us the strength to succeed in this noble endeavor.

  Love and spiritual values received from parents are the strongest assets for a child
to face the various trials of adulthood.  

- Satguru Mata Amritanandamayi Devi
