Words of Wisdom – Mata Amritanandamayi Devi



Today, because of the communication between machines, even people in far off places seem very close. Nevertheless, as the communication between hearts is absent, even those who are physically very near to us are really very far. The beauty of society lies in the communication between hearts.

Rowing a boat against the current is difficult, but if there is a sail it becomes easy. Love for God is like a sail that helps the boat go forward.

Devotion, like tincture used for cleaning a wound, purifies the mind.

Our knowledge of wisdom is limited to words; to bring it into our experience is possible only though devotion.

If you cannot find free time to spare for acts of worship, try to be like the Gopis (in Krishna’s Vrindavan). They were continuously thinking of God while immersed in their work.
