Who is Amma?
Mata Amritanandamayi, also known as Amma, is recognized as an outstanding visionary, humanitarian and spiritual leader. She has received numerous international awards. In the last 30 years, Amma has travelled all over the planet and through her presence, wisdom and her special embrace – Darshan – a personal embrace, that touches so many hearts, brought love, hope and peace.
Now, for the first time ever, Amma is coming to Denmark.
In India she is recognized as a Mahatma (a great soul) and embraces all walks of faith with her message of universal love. Amma is leader of the global, volunteer-based humanitarian NGO, Embracing the World™. Embracing the World is endeavouring to lighten the burden of the world´s poor by meeting their basic needs – food, shelter, education, healthcare and livelihood.
“Amma does more for the poor than many governments.”
-Muhammad Yunus, 2012 (recipienBecome a volunteer at the eventt of Nobel’s peaceprize)
Become a volunteer at the event
The two day long event with Amma in Copenhagen is organized solely with the help of volunteers. Many have participated several years at different events with Amma in Europe. To work as a volunteer at Amma´s event is both delightful and a teaching experience at the same time – it opens your heart and broadens your horizon.
If you want to participate, you can sign up as a volunteer helper even before the Amma-event, or spontaniously during the event at Brøndby hall at the desk for volunteer helpers (the seva-desk). We will need helping hands, for instance in the kitchen, at the sales stalls, with logistics and with transportation. We are looking forward to see you.
You can sign up as a volunteer helper before the event at the sevaform here, where you can leave a note about what you prefer to help us with.
