Dedication to Ma

Devote yourself to the study of books of wisdom and to satsang. Cherish the company of those who are helpful to your quest, avoid those who distract you. In other words, hold fast to the Good and shun the merely pleasurable. If you live in this spirit, the help you need will come to you naturally.–Sri Anandamayi Ma

Satsang with Anandamayi Ma

Anandamayi Ma gave oral teachings in response to the questions of an enormous number of people from all walks and stations of life. She wrote no books or articles. Her satsangs remain one of the primary ways that we can receive Her teachings today. Atmananda, Ma’s English-language translator, worked closely with Brahmachari Kamal Bhattacharjee, a Pandit who devoted his life to recording Ma’s satsangs in Bengali with meticulous concern for accuracy. Together, they produced the most definitive record of Her words.

Life with Anandamayi Ma

Many of Ma’s devotees have written memoirs of their lives with Her. In addition, Ma encouraged some to keep a spiritual diary. These writings present a fascinating portrait of what it means, on a very personal, day-to-day level, to be a disciple of a great Guru.

Anandamayi Ma in the Movies

We are lucky to have many home movies and two documentaries featuring Anandamayi Ma. As is the case with all Realized beings, simply watching Her speak, move and interact is a teaching and a transmission.

Ma’s Darshan

Darshan means to see, the instruments through which we see, and View. We see and are seen by Guru. By receiving darshan, or View, Guru is the instrument though which we establish ourselves in the vastness and presence of unconditioned Reality.
