Amma's Geneva Speech 2002 - Universal Motherhood

When Amma received the prestigious Gandhi-King Peace Award for Non-Violence, she gave one of the most powerful and moving speeches she has ever given, her address on Universal Motherhood. Amma talks about the power not just of women, but of all human beings. This video captures the speech in its entirety while including many other touching moments from the Peace Initiative. A very powerful and inspiring video- the message of this speech is not to be missed. "The essence of motherhood is not restricted to women who have given birth; it is a principle inherent in both women and men. It is an attitude of the mind. It is love -- and that love is the very breath of life. No one would say, 'I will breathe only when I am with my family and friends; I won't breathe in front of my enemies.' Similarly, for those in whom motherhood has awakened, love and compassion for everyone are as much a part of their being as breathing." -- quote from Amma's speech.
