About Amma

Sri Karunamayi is revered in India as an embodiment of Divine Motherly Love, due to the love and affection that she showers liberally on all people, animals, and even plants, the spiritual knowledge and guidance that she gives freely to all of humanity, and the humanitarian works that she has undertaken. “Amma” as she is affectionately called by her followers, is simply the Telugu word for “mother”- Telugu being Amma’s native language. Although it is not possible to convey the experience of being in Amma’s vibrant presence, we humbly attempt to provide a brief glimpse into her nature, through a brief biographical sketch and a description of Amma’s mission.

Humanitarian Mission

During Amma’s time in the Penusila Forest, in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, Amma became intimately familiar with the particular problems faced by the local villagers living there, including a lack of access to adequate health care and education. Amma’s humanitarian mission grew out of this direct exposure to the problems faced by these rural villagers in South India.

Since then, Amma, along with the SMVA Trust and innumerable volunteers, have implemented various humanitarian projects: offering food & clothing to the underprivileged, free housing to those in dire need, natural disaster relief, free medical, dental & eye treatment to the impoverished, free education & mentorship programs to stop child labor, free wheelchair distribution to the physically disabled, water treatment projects to alleviate toxic water resources, leprosy care, and a mobile health clinic to reach out to the most remote disadvantaged communities. And with all of these projects, peace, love & compassion for all of humanity is the main message to be gained.
