Our Inspiration: MATA AMRITANANDAMAYI (AMMA)
A renowned humanitarian leader and spiritual teacher, Sri Mata Amritanandamayi is the guiding light of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham. Amma’s concept of education, stress on research and commitment to instilling universal values have come together to shape Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham into an institution where the latest advancements and discoveries combine with compassion and service-mindedness. As Mata Amritanandamayi said in 2010 when the State University of New York honored her with an honorary Doctorate in Humane Letters: “It is Amma’s prayer that we develop the expansive-mindedness to embrace both scientific knowledge and spiritual wisdom. We can no longer afford to see these two streams of knowledge as flowing in opposite directions. In truth, they complement one another. If we merge these streams, we will find that we are able to create a mighty river—a river whose waters can remove suffering and spread life to all of humanity.”
Aside from serving as the Chancellor of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Mata Amritanandamayi also runs the vast humanitarian mission known as the Mata Amritanandamayi Math, the headquarters of which is home to one of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham’s five campuses. A world-renowned institution, the Mata Amritanandamayi Math has built more than 45,000 homes for the homeless poor throughout India, is currently providing scholarships for more than 46,000 impoverished children, and has helped more than one lakh poverty-stricken women form self-help groups, and much more.
Mata Amritanandamayi is also a spiritual guide and teacher to millions throughout the world, giving people through her teachings and emotional support the strength to face the challenges of life with peace and mental equanimity. Her days are spent receiving thousands, placing men, women and children on her shoulder, addressing their concerns and instilling in them the confidence and inner strength to move forward in life. In this manner, more than 34 million people have come to Amma for her darshan.
Amrita has been contributing to society in myriad ways through its scientific, educational and humanitarian outreach. Currently, 18000 students are enrolled at Amrita University in various educational programs on five campuses in India.

Live Your Career Dream With AMRITA
These days, a career means more than the earning. Perhaps, more than personal prospects. Across the world, aspiring young talents dream of making a tangible difference in the society which nurtured them, in which they live.
There are many ways to accomplish this goal. In India, the Civil Service gives the perfect opportunity for those who wish to make a difference, as a multi-dimensional change agent. Precisely why, recent years have witnessed a growing increase in the number of aspirants who enlist for the UPSC exams. We find doctors, engineers and other professionals, who, in spite of the career potential that their academic disciplines offer, choosing Civil Service. Definitely with a reason.

With Unflinching Social Commitment
Success in life is often not an end in itself. Knowledge, power grows in dimensions when we invest the same for the betterment of the society. With compassion, commitment, understanding and a willingness to push the boundaries for the ethos we believe in and live for.
At Amrita, this understanding is the leading light, as the institution is focussed on moulding socially committed Civil Servants, who, with the power invested in them, strive to create a better India.
