Mata Amritanandamayi citáty
Datum narození: 27. září 1953
Mata Amritanandamayi Devi známá též jako Amma nebo Ammachi, vlastním jménem Sudhamani Idamanel je indická hinduistická duchovní učitelka a zakladatelka sítě charitativních aktivit.
Je známá jako tzv. Objímající Svatá, protože téměř každý den od konce sedmdesátých let rozdává příchozím požehnání pomocí obejmutí - daršanu. Daršan je termín používaný v hinduismu pro teofanii, vizi boží, božský zážitek či bytí v přítomnosti božství. Organizace zaštiťující humanitární aktivity Amritanandamayi uvádí, že Amma za posledních 30 let osobně objala 33 milionů lidí. Během jediného dne objímá nepřetržitě i dvacet hodin a objala i 40 000 lidí.
Citáty Mata Amritanandamayi
„The heart does not talk, it is the intellect that does all the talking. All dealings are at the intellectual level. We have become like machines; our very lives have become mechanical. Life has lost its naturalness — like a garland of plastic flowers. There is no heart in life anymore. Only when hearts come together does true life blossom.“
„These days, to prevent terrorist attacks, strict security measures are implemented in airports and other establishments. While such measures are necessary for our physical safety, they are not a final solution. In fact, there is one explosive in particular that is the most destructive of all. No machine can detect it. It is the hatred, loathing and vengeance found in the human mind.“
„Just as one sucks the juice from the sugarcane and spits out the stalk, the religious leaders should encourage their followers to imbibe the essence of religion—which is spirituality—and not give over-importance to the external aspects. Unfortunately, today many are eating the stalk and spitting out the essence.“
„Jivanmukti is not something to be attained after death, nor is it to be experienced or bestowed upon you in another world. It is a state of perfect awareness and equanimity, which can be experienced here and now in this world, while living in the body. Having come to experience the highest truth of oneness with the Self, such blessed souls do not have to be born again. They merge with the infinite consciousness.“
„The truth “I exist” is self-evident. You may deny God by saying, “God is just a belief,” but existence cannot be refuted. That existence, that Cosmic Power, is God. God has no separate hands, legs, eyes, or body, other than our own. He moves through our hands, He walks with our legs, He sees through our eyes, and it is He who beats within the heart of each one of us.“
„The love of awakened motherhood is a love and compassion felt not only towards one’s own children, but towards all people, animals and plants, rocks and rivers—a love extended to all of nature, to all beings. Indeed, to a woman in whom the state of true motherhood has awakened, all creatures are her children. This love, this motherhood, is Divine Love—and that is God.“
