The Mata Amritanandamayi Math (MAM) launched a massive global afforestation programme GoGreen today when Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy inaugurated a year-long plan aiming to plant 60 lakh saplings across the world – marking the start of several MAM initiatives in the run-up to September 27th — the 60th birthday of Amma.
“Environment protection and conservation is one of the most important services we can do for society,” Mr Chandy said. “It is laudable that the Math has undertaken such a project on the occasion of Amma’s 60th birthday.”
The afforestation and MAM’s cleaning drives are part of Amma’s teaching that “The Creator and the creation are not two”, and that service to the environment is service to the Divine.
