(AMMA’S sayings are simple, brief, precise and far too pregnant with meaning.)

HER aphorisms echo the profound depths of eternal wisdom and thought. 

They form a soothing balm for the troubled soul. Offer solace and comfort for the person passing through life’s travails and tribulations. Console the troubled being at all points of time and help him forge ahead in life’s sojourn. Humble attempt shall be made to capture the essence of a few SOOTH SAYS of AMMA.

Limitations of language and diction in transporting into English. the original thought in the vernacular, in which AMMA expressed inimitably, may kindly be viewed with indulgence by the readers.


In the course of life, hope entices, propels and moves the self forward. Discontent too crops up not infrequently in many mundane pursuits.

The mind swings between these two opposite forces; both the realities to be experienced. Hope to be cherished and discontent to be contained well within. And to be swayed by neither far too much, so as to get on with one’s life restrained and within bounds. In these two extremes, vicissitudes of life are inevitable for one and all. But the MIND hinged to GOD, constantly dwelling on the DIVINE continues unperturbed.

Such evenness is itself an exalted state; all attempts at such exalted equanimity in the mundane strife are but SADHANA. Even so, “If winter comes can spring be far behind” in the kaleidoscope of life.


(Original quote in Telugu “Asa asanthrupthula kalayike jeevitham” AMMA)
