Throughout her life, Amma has expressed deep concern for the environment. She has publicly called on us to take concrete steps toward the restoration of nature’s delicate balance, including conservation of resources, reforestation efforts, and lifestyle changes. Since 2001, our volunteers have participated in a wide range of nature conservation activities and promoted environmental awareness across the globe through GreenFriends, our environmental movement.
“Our earth is serving us. The sun, the moon and the stars all serve us. What can we do in return for their selfless service?”
