On The Trail Of Liberation Volume – 3



Back Cover

Amma is a wonder; everything about her is wondrous. This is the experience of the countless people who have met her. What is the secret of her charisma? Her abidance in the Divine and her ability to strike an instant motherly rapport with her children. This book is the first volume of the compilation of talks given by Amma’s monastic children, most of whom have lived with her for at least two decades. The talks recount precious moments with Amma and reveal priceless pearls of spiritual understanding they have gleaned from those interactions. Every devotee has his or her own story of Amma to tell. The stories in this book are by some of those who, inspired by Amma, renounced worldly life to dedicate themselves to a life of spiritual practice and selfless service. This book is also an archive of life in Amritapuri, the nucleus of Amma’s mission and the hub from which her spiritual influence is radiating out towards the rest of the world. Reading it will give a finer appreciation of Amma’s epochal mission: uplifting humanity by reinstating the timeless values of loving and serving others

How many of us truly understand and appreciate the value of living with Amma or having her in our lives? No other mahātmā (spiritually illumined soul) has done what Amma has done for the world. She is fully accessible to all, and has embraced more than 38 million people worldwide. Amma is the very personification of dharma and encourages us to lead dharmic lives. “Dharmo rakṣati rakṣitaḥ” — “Dharma protects those who follow it.” In one way or another, all the articles in this book, the third volume of the compilation of talks given by Amma’s monastic children, explain how and why. Drawing on their experiences with Amma and her teachings, they explain why swadharma (one’s duties) is a moral imperative and point out the perils of taking on paradharma (the duties of others). In her message, Amma goes one step further by reminding us of our parama-dharma (highest duty) — recognizing our own divinity.
