What Amritabhaasha Students Are Saying

I feel Amma's presence

France, Canada
Amritabhaasha: Communicate with Amma

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

Revathi, USA
Amritabhaasha: Communicate with Amma

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

Susi, Germany
Amritabhaasha: Communicate with Amma

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!

Jayshree, USA
Amritabhaasha: Communicate with Amma

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.

No prior Malayalam experience needed.

Open to all students interested in bhajans, Indian culture, or Malayalam.
