"Amma’s words present a simpler version of the same truths found in the ancient scriptures. Hence, they carry the same beauty and profundity as the knowledge shared by the ancient seers. They really require no introduction. However, to truly understand their meaning, it is not enough to merely read them. One has to meditate upon them—to go beneath their surface and dive deep. Then, we find that, just as a tree is hiding inside each seed, a world of knowledge is hiding inside Amma’s every word. They have tremendous power—the power to quieten our mind and help us come face to face with God, our true nature."
