Though science and technology has lessened the physical distance between one another, the hearts have grown apart with it, said Mata Amritanandamayi. She was speaking at the satsang on the second day of Brahmasthana Mahotsavam on Tuesday at the Kaimanam Brahmasthanam.

“Those who spend the whole day browsing Facebook fails to see the face of the one sitting next to them. If our actions are not in accordance with our values, it is similar to a mobile phone without battery,” she added. The clouds of ire and hatred have blocked our vision. The next revolution should be that of love that is able to soothe the pain of our hearts,” she said. 

As many as 26,000 devotees had darshan of Mata on the basis of the pre-distributed token numbers since Monday morning. Free food and medical aid had been made available for the devotees at the venue.

“In life, we are always searching for perfection, which is our primary dharma, to join the supreme power that controls all of nature. Dharma is the very foundation of creation that harmoniously integrates our body, mind and intellect, as well as the individual to society and all other living beings,” she said.

Mata also said that the desire to become one with an all-powerful, all-knowing and all-pervasive perfection is there in the subconscious mind of each and everyone of us.

“Like a pyramid, human life has four sides: dharma, artha, kama and moksha - the pursuit of dharma, the pursuit of money, the pursuit of pleasure, and the pursuit of liberation. These four comprise the very foundation stones of life,” she said.

The darshan was given from 10.30 am till night followed by satsang, bhajans and dhyanam. Amritanandamayi will return to Amritapuri on Wednesday.
