Question: What is the foundation of spirituality? Amma: My dear children, the foundation of spirituality is not blind faith, as some may believe. It is a deep inquiry, an intense exploration within one’s own self. Spirituality is about seeking the truth, and the truth can only be discovered through direct experience, through one’s own efforts and practice.
Question: Amma, can you tell us more about how we can seek the truth within? Amma: The key is to cultivate a sincere and pure heart, to be open to new ideas and experiences, and to be willing to question everything, including your own beliefs and assumptions. Dear children, practice meditation and self-reflection, and seek guidance from those who have walked the path before you. But ultimately, the truth can only be discovered through your own experience.
