GURU PURNIMA 2021
A day to commemorate our Guru, Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi ♥️
Guru Purnima is traditionally held to be the birthday of Bhagawan Vyasa, the compiler of the Vedas. It is a day for celebration and worship when devotees express gratitude to their Guru. For many of Amma’s children, Guru Purnima is a time to reflect on our connection with Her and show our appreciation and love, by offering puja and expressing our gratitude.

Om Amriteshwaryai Namah
Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (Amma), more popularly known as the Hugging Saint and a renowned humanitarian has been visiting Malaysia since 2002. Known across the globe for her fathomless compassion, selflessness and spiritual wisdom, Amma has dedicated her entire life for the benefit of other people. Every day she sits for hours on end, receiving person after person in the loving embrace of a mother, sharing tears of the sorrowful and spreading joy. Through this blessing, countless hearts have been opened to a world of peace, love and service. Inspired by Amma, citizens of Malaysia have been coming together to provide food and showers for the homeless, to plant saplings as part of afforestation drives, and to practice meditation and other spiritual practices. The young, the old; the rich, the poor; people of all faiths, nations and walks of life are taking inspiration and solace from the peace and love awoken in the human heart by Amma.
Here in Malaysia, there are many opportunities to get involved in activities and spiritual practices inspired by Amma. There are regular bhajans (devotional singing) sessions, which also involve spiritual teachings and meditation. Please explore our website to know more.
