"An Ashram is not a mere cluster of inanimate buildings, temples, trees and residences; rather it is the very embodiment of the Spiritual Master's Grace. It is a vital, dynamic and living institution which stimulates the aspiration of the sincere student to attain the State of Oneness.
 
The spiritual practice, service, prayers and pure thoughts and actions of the visitors and residents combine with the Grace of the Guru to make the Ashram a holy, sacred place."
- Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi

Future MA Center Permaculture Survey

Amma's Future MA Center in Maltby wants to hear from YOU. Amma has blessed us to use permaculture on the Maltby property. In permaculture we strive to minimize labor by looking at ways to work with nature rather than against nature. We follow the permaculture principles to help us make conscious decisions about placement, elements, and sustainability. The ultimate goal is to replenish the land with lush vegetation, healthy soils, water, and wildlife, while at the same time growing healthy organic food both for personal use and to share with others.
 
Before a design can be developed we need input from all members who will be involved in the development of the property. Once this information is collected it is easier to create a sustainable design that works within the parameters of the people needs and the assessment of the property. Otherwise we are using our valuable resources of time and energy to put together a design based on our personal evaluations and (most likely) will need to revise the design. Gathering as much information before a design is developed is vital to the success of the project
 

Please take 5 minutes to complete this survey. Thank You!

Seattle Mother's Kitchen

Mother's Kitchen
The enthusiastic mother's kitchen team early on a Sunday making breakfast for the homeless in Seattle.
 
Every 2nd Sunday from 9:30-12:00 Amma's Devotees look forward to serving the poor of Seattle! We meet at the Lutheran Compass Center at 9:30 am. The Compass Center, which is a shelter for homeless men is located in downtown Seattle.
 
We begin with a prayer for peace. We try to send love to all the people who are struggling. Then we cook breakfast to the glorious angelic sound of Mother's Bhajans. We cook for the 50-75 men that live in the shelter, but we also cook for the men and women living outside.
