Sri Karunamayi Quotes - A Collection Of Teachings Of Amma Karunamayi

Sri Karunamayi is popularly known as Amma Karunamayi and is renowned for her teachings based on the Sanatana Dharma. This is a collection of teachings and quotes of Sri Karunamayi.

It is selfishness which perpetuates mortality and sensual life which leads to hell. Wisdom, divya prema, divine love and forgiveness all lead to immortality.

He who has intense desire for God, who has the inner vision, only he understands the universe. Your heart must be pure. When you have inner vision, you can rightly understand the universe and know what life is. This is the goal of life and to achieve that state of absolute consciousness, that poorna pragna, the seeker seeks.

 A Collection Of Teachings Of Amma Karunamayi

Body, mind and spirituality--these are three cages. A spiritual seeker will go beyond all these cages. In his natural state, samadhi, the entire universe is nothing but his Self. 

Whatever he enjoys in this world is nothing but Self; time is Self only; wisdom is Self only. He realizes he is not this body. In fact, when he achieves that highest state of absolute consciousness, he sees no differences at all. He sees everyone the same, and he sees the whole world as his own, knowing that the entire universe belongs to him: the rivers, the mountains, the trees, the birds, everything belongs to him. He sees nothing as separate from himself. He knows that he belongs to nature, and nature belongs to him.

Lord Shiva's language is very difficult to learn - the language of silence. It is very difficult to practice the language of absolute silence. It is not easy for humankind to achieve that God-state immediately-to go from negativity to positivity, and from positivity to silence. 

Only step by step can positivity be achieved, not all at once.

Our true nature is not limited... it is like the vast ocean... When we touch Supreme Consciousness through meditation, then we are boundless, we are everywhere, we are eternal.

Meditation remodels our life and elevates us to divinity. So meditation is nothing but purification, inner purification. Gradually we begin to control our anger, lust, greed, jealousy and hatred.

When we have liberation from these negative qualities of anger, lust, greed, hatred, and jealousy, we have so much peace. We enjoy peace; we enjoy a balanced state of mind, equal vision and real wisdom. We understand reality, and the entire universe also, from the inside.


So how can we achieve that state? By constant practice of meditation. Meditation balances our mind. It reduces the restlessness of our ego, ignorance and all the dark forces. It develops the virtues, the divine attributes, and gradually the buds within us bloom. These buds are inside our body. These divine attributes are in the form of little seeds in our heart. Gradually we have selflessness and we have peace of mind.
