Amma has always looked upon animals as Her children and Nature itself as Her own Mother. Now, with Green Friends, Amma has given Her children an opportunity to serve Nature and cultivate an attitude of love and respect for Mother Earth.
Green Friends is an organisation established by M.A. Math for the preservation and protection of the environment. This programme instils love and respect for Mother Nature in people, teaching them that humankind is a part of Nature, not a separate entity. If we take care of plants and animals and the environment as a while, Nature, in turn, will take care of us.
Green Friends regularly engages in tree planting and the maintenance of plants. Its members also practice eco-meditation, a method or re-establishing the vitally important harmony between nature and humanity.
”Without Nature no creature, no human being, nothing would exist. Thus it is our responsibility to lovingly care for every living being.”
From “Messages from Amma” - Amma
We are all children of Mother Nature. We are nourished and sustained by Her bounty. Without Her, we could not exist. Therefore, it is our supreme duty to look after Mother Nature and to repay our dept to Her in whatever way that we can. This vision is the inspiration behind Green Friends which is an initiative of the Mata Amritanandamayi Math (Amma’s headquarters in India) to protect our environment and to help it to regenerate and flourish. For this to be possible, GreenFriends relies on the participation of individuals of all ages, faiths and walks of life. People who love Nature and feel strongly about the urgent need to protect Her.
