The sanctity and beauty of Amma’s divine, blissful singing is a bridge that helps us cross over to God’s world. Inspired by Amma’s singing, we have created this course which teaches you the lyrics and meaning of five of Amma’s Malayalam bhajans. We will learn each word of the bhajan, its meaning, pronunciation, and important grammar points. There is a listen and repeat segment, along with a karaoke track, to support you as you practice. Join us on this journey to learn the infinite depth and dimensions of Amma’s Malayalam bhajans, and have fun learning many rich traditions!
I feel Amma's presence
To me, this course is far beyond words. It is part of my sadhana, my commitment and craving for God. I feel Amma's presence. The very first video class I watched, I suddenly cried. Amma finds different ways to reach us according to our preferences and abilities. In a few months or years, I may forget some vocabulary, but my heart will be more fulfilled and free.
Grounded in Amma's teachings
I have enjoyed learning Malayalam with Amritapushpa and my class cohorts, as the course content is grounded in Amma's teachings. During these difficult times, it has brought us closer to Amma. Thank you for this opportunity.
Love and compassion
The Amritabhaasha Malayalam class takes you straight to the core of Amma's teachings of love and compassion. Amritapushpa is an excellent teacher who is able to present this vast ocean of Malayalam in a playful way. After a few classes I was able to understand the basic structure of sentences and keywords which instantly made me feel much more connected to Amma. I felt that the meaning of her teachings sunk deep into my memory.
It was so much fun!
The Amritabhaasha class was very, very good. I learned so much about Malayalam in only a few short weeks. I am sure any of the students would recommend it. It was so much fun! It reinforces spiritual teachings and allows you to "play" with Amma. It is a sadhana in its own right.
Amritapushpa is a native Malayalam speaker who speaks multiple languages. She volunteers her time and experience in service to Amma and her devotees. Since the opening of Amrita Virtual Academy, she has been teaching the Amritabhaasha: Part 1 and Part 2 courses in Amrita Virtual Academy as well as Learn Bhajan Lyrics and Learn Devi Bhajan Lyrics courses.
