About us

Our quest to find meaning in life seems never-ending, and we try to gain fulfilment through accomplishments and relationships. But rarely do we find either true joy or everlasting peace and contentment.

We are like children in a vast fairground, entranced by the glitter of the lights and the display of toys and sweets in the booths. After a few minutes, realizing that our mother is not with us any more, we start searching frantically for her. The flashy attractions might continue distracting us temporarily, but we will know peace and happiness only when we are reunited with our mother.

The words of Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi—affectionately called ‘Amma’ (‘Mother’) or the ‘Hugging Saint’—can help us rediscover the fountain of bliss within. Indeed, sacred teachings are the only true legacy for humankind. At Amrita Books, we strive to honor that legacy and thus kindle the light of inner wisdom in the hearts of people all over the world.

Amrita books are published without any commercial motive, they are priced very low. In recent years books have become very expensive, beyond the reach of the common man. By keeping the price of books low, the Amrita Books make quality books available to people all over India.
