Amritapuri is the heart of Amma’s spiritual and humanitarian global network. Built in 1981 on the land where Amma was born, Amritapuri is now home to 3,500 residents.
Amma’s monastic disciples, spiritual seekers, families and visitors spend their time in spiritual practices and volunteer work.

Officially named ‘Mata Amritanandamayi Math’, and adjacent to one of Amrita University’s biggest campuses, it is the international headquarters for Embracing the World, our humanitarian branch. 

” Amritapuri exists for the world. It belongs to you and to all the people who come here. “
