Today Amma, Pope Francis, and other leaders of the world’s religions made history. They came together in one voice to declare that modern slavery is a crime against humanity. They called on all people, irrespective of gender, faith and culture, to work together to eradicate human trafficking and all other forms of slavery from the face of the earth by 2020.#EndSlavery

A real Master teaches you to accept everything that happens in life. He helps you to be thankful for both good and bad, right and wrong, enemy and friend, those who harm you and those who help you, those who cage you and those who release you from the cage. The Master helps you forget about the dark past and the bright future full of a thousand promises. He helps you live life in the present moment with all its fullness. He lets you know that the whole of nature - everything, everybody, even your enemy is helping you evolve and attain perfection.

~ Amma

Life is a mystery. You cannot understand it unless you surrender, for your intellect cannot grasp its expansive and infinite nature, its real meaning and fullness. Bow down low and be humble; then you will know life’s meaning.

He’s still dead when you’ve done with the bottle

Of course it’s a corpse that you keep in the cradle

Kids are still depressed when you dress them up

And syrup is still syrup in a sippy cup

The Ebola virus that spread over parts of Africa became a nightmare for the whole world. It wiped out thousands of human beings. But the virus of hatred is killing more than any epidemic. The antidote for hatred is within us; the antidote is love and kindness.

“The mind can be compared to a pendulum. Like the incessant movement of a clock’s pendulum, the mind swings intermittently from happiness to sorrow and back again. Real peace and happiness can be experienced only when the mind stops swinging altogether. From that stillness ensues real peace and bliss, and this state is truly the essence of life.”
