All programmes are free and open to the public.

As part of the yatra, which is comprised of two legs across February and March, Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (Amma) will be visiting 14 cities, including Madurai, Chennai, Mangalore, Mysore and Bangalore, to shower her blessings on the devotees and spread the message of love and peace.

Amma’s Bharata Yatra has been an annual event for more 30 years now. She has been holding world tours for the same duration, making deep bonds with people across cultures, languages, nationalities and religions.

“Amma is able to establish perfect communication with people of all nations, languages and cultures because her real language is not Malayalam but a universal one—the Language of Love,” says Amma’s head disciple, Swami Amritaswarupananda Puri. “Amma is able to communicate through the Language of Love because she understands people’s hearts—their deep-seated sorrows, their hidden pains. And just as importantly, she also knows how to forever heal those hearts as well.”

Amma has delivered addresses at the United Nations several times and has spoken twice at the Parliament of the World’s Religions. Among other accolades, she has received the Gandhi-King Award for Non-violence in Geneva, the James Parks Morton Interfaith Award in New York, and an honorary doctorate from the State University of New York. In 2014, at the invitation of His Holiness Pope Francis, Amma was one of 12 religious and spiritual leaders to travel to the Vatican to sign a joint declaration against modern slavery. Throughout her life, Amma has embraced and comforted more than 37 million people. When asked where she gets the energy to help so many people while also building and running a massive humanitarian organization, Amma answers: “Where there is true love, everything is effortless. Love transforms.”

Amma’s organization exists to help alleviate the burden of the poor through helping to meet each of their five basic needs—food, shelter, healthcare, education, and livelihood—wherever and whenever possible. MAM is especially focused on helping to meet these needs in the aftermath of major disasters. To date, MAM has provided free medical care to more than four million people. It has built more than 47,000 homes for the homeless throughout India and has provided financial aid for more than 100,000 people unable to care for themselves. MAM is also providing educational assistance to 50,000 students.

Moreover it is offering vocational-training, literacy-training, running orphanages, hospices, old-age homes, scholarship programs, planting trees and managing environmental-protection programs. MAM has done massive relief-and-rehabilitation work following the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami as well as in response to flooding in Mumbai, Gujarat, Chennai and Bihar, Uttarakhand and Jammu-Kashmir, as well as in response to earthquakes in Kashmir, Nepal, Haiti and Japan, cyclones in West Bengal and the Philippines, and hurricanes in the United States.
