Mata Amritanandamayi is known throughout the world as Amma, or Mother, for her selfless love and compassion toward all beings. Her entire life has been dedicated to alleviating the pain of the poor, and those suffering physically and emotionally.
Throughout her life, Mata Amritanandamayi has embraced and comforted more than 34 million people. Amma inspires, uplifts, and transforms through her embrace, her spiritual wisdom and through her global charities, known as
Embracing the World.® When asked where she gets the energy to help so many people, she answers: "Where there is true love, anything is effortless."
While Amma is widely regarded as one of India’s foremost spiritual leaders, Amma says that her religion is love. She has never asked anyone to change their religion but only to contemplate the essential principles of their own faith and to try to live accordingly.
How she began and other great sharings about and from Amma can be found @ www.amma.org
My personal journey is to be continued...
Mata Amritanandamayi Devi
"Mātā Amritānandamayī Devī, better known simply as Amma, is a Hindu spiritual leader, guru and humanitarian, who is revered as a saint by her followers."
"Our highest, most important duty in this world is to help our fellow beings."
"Our attitude should be: Whatever happens I will remain strong, courageous and happy."
"Our efforts to remove hatred and indifference from the world begin by trying to remove them from our own mind"
"Along with an understanding of the outer world, it is essential that we also come to know the inner world"
"Serving the world with love and cooperation, you will find your own true self. As you help those in need, selfishness will fall away, and without even noticing you will find your own fulfillment."
“Just as the right hand comes to dress the wound on the left hand, we should see another person's sorrows as our own and come to his or her aid."
"God's power is not something outside.
It is within us.
We need to awaken that power."
Thank you Mataji

What is this Wisdom Series about? We have the World Series but that's about baseball. We have the series Apple watches, we have television series like Grey's Anatomy that's going into its 16th season! There are many types of series, a series of books, of coins, there's a series in mathematics, phonics, in music and a few others. In my search of many of the definitions for series, I did not find a wisdom series so here it is.
We're in perfect sync with newness, as the New Moon was @ 6:37am today, August 30th. Happy New Moon, I invite you to do something new.
Over the next couple of weeks I'll be taking this blob on an exploration of diverse individuals. I will share my interpretations of notable aspects of wisdom gained from them. It is a random series offering different paths, different ideas, different time periods, different differences.
Same same but different!
Let the games begin!
Aristotle, lived from 384–322 BC
It is said that he was one of the best and most well-known of ancient Greek philosophers. His thoughts live on and have seemed to have shaped the minds of western society past and present.
Aristotle was one of the first to propose that all matter was continuous and can be further divided infinitely into smaller pieces.
Enjoy some of his quotes:
"Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all."
"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."
"Happiness depends upon ourselves."
"The whole is more than the sum of its parts."
"Character may almost be called the most effective means of persuasion."
"What is a friend?
A single soul dwelling in two bodies." (My Fav)
Right On Aristotle
