Mata Amritanandamayi, or Amma, as she is affectionately known, is an inspirational example of selflessness. Her life is dedicated to serving others as an expression of her boundless love. Amma teaches that the Divine exists in every living being. She believes anyone can experience that divinity by expanding his or her love to embrace and serve all beings.
She has inspired millions around the world to practice her teachings, open their hearts to the experience of God as an inner presence of divine love and started innumerable humanitarian services. For her outstanding contributions to the world community she has earned international recognition and is recognized as an extraordinary spiritual leader by the United Nations and by the people all over the world. Here is a short video about Amma titled “Embracing the World.”

Your presence is warmly welcomed at any of these gatherings.Welcome to the M.A. Center of New England where regular Satsangs are held on first Saturday at 4pm and third Saturday at 4 pm.
Brahmachari Ramanand, a long time disciple of Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (Amma) met Amma at the tender age of 3 and has had the good fortune of being with Her, in the Amritapuri ashram in India, from a very young age. He has written and composed many devotional songs (bhajans) and his melodious voice can often be heard alongside Amma’s during many bhajans. One can feel the divine grace flow through his soulful singing.
Presently, Br. Ramanand oversees the activities of M.A. Center in the eastern US and Canada. He travels to many cities in order to inspire the different Amma satsangs to better serve their communities and keep alive the flame of selfless-service that Amma has lighted in their hearts.
