"The essence of Amma's message to the world is that we should realize the great opportunity we have as human beings to cultivate inner beauty and ultimately to attain spiritual liberation, so that we can offer our selfless service to the entire universe. The true purpose of human life lies in the development of such dharmic virtues as compassion, truthfulness, dispassionate wisdom, contentment, and selfless love.
These virtues produce a peaceful state of mind that is extremely
conducive to true, deep meditation. It is only in deep meditation that we come
into contact with the divine inner Self-the Atman. Amma describes this true
Self in many ways-as eternal bliss, highest truth, purity, peace, wisdom, the
light of lights, and so on. Eventually, through the combination of sincere
personal striving and the descent of divine grace, we can merge permanently with
the eternal light of supreme Divine Consciousness. This is the ultimate
fulfillment of our human birth, and it is the destiny of all beings."
Her soft, melodious voice, Karunamayi gives public talks which deal mostly with
meditation and its innumerable benefits. Her discourses create a magic
spell on the audience because she deals with all subtle subjects one after the
other with such ease. Her eloquence on every subject is very clear and
doubtless. She imparts spiritual wisdom to her audience and freely shares
the highest knowledge. Using simple, concrete examples, she shares
insights which are crucial to the spiritual progress and illumination of her
listeners. Often, she will recount events taken from the daily lives of ancient
sages or stories found in the great epics of India, leaving the undeniable
impression that she speaks from personal experience. No matter how great the
knowledge she shares, however, always she emphasizes the need for personal
experience, without which all information is useless - intellectual knowledge is
but a picture of a flower compared to the flower itself.
Karunamayi founded the Sri Mathru Devi Viswa Shanthi Ashram. Currently, a beautiful temple dedicated to Bharat Mata (Mother India) is nearing completion there. She also maintains an ashram, Karunamayi Shanthi Dhama, in the city of Bangalore. More than a thousand people per month are fed at her ashrams. Other institutions that have been founded include an orphanage and a school for handicapped children and those with special needs. Most recently, a 30 bed hospital for the indigent tribespeople in remote Penusila Kshetram is planned and funds are being raised for its completion.
