Biography

Aum Amma is originally from Kerala. Not much information is known about Amma's childhood and the occurrences that brought her to her current state.

She is called Aum Amma after the sacred Aum symbol (ও) since at some point the symbol appeared on her forehead (see the video in the "View Video" tab).

Before 2001, she lived in Tirupathi and traveled to Kanyakumari, up the Himalayas to Uttarkashi, and to Varanasi.

During 2001-2003, Amma lived in a cave on the sacred Arunachala Hill in Tiruvannamalai (this is the reason for one of her names "Cave Amma"). People used to visit her for darshans in that cave (called "Cave Amma").

In 2003, she left the cave and traveled to Rishikesh and then returned to Tiruvannamalai. Then she lived in Tiruvannamalai in several houses, attended by her devotees and gave regular darshans.

In 2011 she left Tiruvannamalai as her permanent residence and moved to Villupuram (67KM from Tiru). Then again moved, this time to near Auroville where she stayed most of her time.

In 2012 she moved to Karnataka and now it is said that she is on travel in Andhra Pradesh.

Attractions, activities, and more to see: 

Amma is brought in by her devotees. She is usually in a complete disconnected ecstatic state with her eyes rolled and her body trembling in an uncontrolled manner. When the darshan starts, numerous flowers are placed on Amma's hands by her devotees and she is throwing them to the air.

Each participant in the darshan, on his/her turn, approaches Amma and places his hands on Amma's feet. She may put her hands (sometimes her feet) on the participant's head and this way transmit her blessing.

The energy in the room is electrifying and there is a lot of love and heart chakra activity felt.

At the end, before leaving, a prasad is given.
