We are so grateful to Amma who welcomed our invitation and to all the volunteers who contributed to the realization of this precious event with their work.
Amma has been dedicating to selfless service for all her life, offering an extraordinary lesson of love and courage, which has inspired many people to engage themselves in humanitarian activities and give their own contribution to make the world a better place.
The realization of every public program with Amma is possible thanks to the totally free work carried out by more than 800 volunteers coming from the most different professional fields and this is indeed the approach that allows to keep the organization costs down, guaranteeing the collected funds to flow directly into the numerous humanitarians projects of Embracing the World.
“The beauty and charm of selfless service should never disappear from the face of this earth” Amma
Immediately after Amma’s departure, the volunteers carefully collected even the smallest objects, useful for setting up the next program, and put them in the containers.
Thanks to Amma and to those who donated their work before, during and after the wonderful 2018 event.
The program is free entry thanks to the efforts of volunteers and no remunerated directors.
Combined with an ethic of personal renunciation demonstrated by Amma and kept at all level of the organization, this ensures that the donations and funds collected could arrive directly to the beneficiaries of Embracing the World projects, rather than being dissipated in administrative overloads.
Amma teaches that everyone – rich or poor – has the power to make a difference in another’s life and that no selfless gesture is meaningless.
Selfless actions we perform for each other are definetly the way to lead true peace, peace for the individual, peace for the community and peace between different cultures, nations and faiths.
Through her extraordinary acts of love, inner strength and self-sacrifice, Amma has inspired charitable projects in more than 40 countries all over the world.
This global humanitarian movement is constantly growing. More and more people, day by day, are inspired by Amma’s example to share their time, energy and resources with those in need – both in their community and the rest of the world.
