Amrita Sanjeevani, “Bringing to Life”, is the seva organization at Amrita’s Amritapuri campus was inaugurated by Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (our beloved Amma) on 15 August 2005 and run by its members completely on a volunteer basis. Seva is an important part of the Amrita experience, where the focus is on “education for life” in addition to “education for a living.” It aims to develop in students a realistic knowledge and understanding of the society in which they are living, their obligations to it and Mother Nature as a whole and thereby induce in them the attitude of selfless service.
‘ABC’ is an example of how a humble venture of Amrita Sanjeevani at Amritapuri Campus became a nationwide project – a drive to clean the entire India to make the country a healthier and more beautiful place.
‘Clean up Drives’ have been routine at Amritapuri. Every year under the guidance of our beloved Chancellor Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi such projects used to be initiated by Amrita Sanjeevani. Every August 15 our nearby bus stands and the Karunagapally Civil Station, Government Hospital premises etc used to be cleaned up by the Sanjeevani volunteers.
