Amma's Disciples' New Titles
NA Disciples
We are so pleased to announce that Amma’s representatives in North America were initiated into Sannyasa-asrama and Bramacharya-asrama at a formal ‘diksha’ ceremony officiated by Amma at the Mata Amritanandamayi Math in India on March 13, 2020. The new names given by Amma are (L to R): Swamini Ambikamrita Prana, Swami Shantamritananda Puri, Swami Dayamritananda Puri, and Br. Ramanandamrita Chaitanya.
The names are beautiful reminders about the true goal of human life and follow the order of the Adi Shankaracharya Parampara. The names of the Swamis (male) are suffixed with ‘Ananda’ (bliss) and ‘Puri’. The names of the Swaminis (female) are suffixed with ‘Prana’ (life breath).
The brahmacharis received new names ending with ‘Chaitanya’, meaning ‘consciousness.’ Over 260 disciples took part in the historic ceremony, which included a series of rituals and penances that symbolized the ultimate sacrifice of their past identity and formalized a new identity as a servant of the world. Amma lovingly gave each of them their new robes saying: “a Sannyasi is a real servant of the world. In fact, he or she is the only one who serves and loves the world without expecting anything in return.” She asked everyone to pray for them and blessed them to continue their work of spreading Amma’s message to uplift the world.
It is an enormous honor for North America to welcome back our representative monastic disciples who have so lovingly committed to serving our region and the world at large.

Light the lamp of love and faith within you and move forward. When you take each step with good thoughts and a smiling face, all goodness will come to you and fill your being. Then God cannot possibly stay away from you. Divinity will embrace you.
