The real purpose of life is to experience and realize divinity within – Mata Amritananda Mayi Sayings


When we cultivate feelings of enmity, it is like drinking poison and hoping our enemy will die. If we see someone in a wheelchair, we feel compassion. A person who cannot control his anger is similarly disabled.

An awareness of the need for coexistence amidst diversity is the only way to alleviate the suffering of others.

When we engage others with respect, understanding and acceptance, then we will be able to communicate at the level of the heart.

The real purpose of life is to experience and realize divinity within.
