Apart from these, the Centre regularly carries out extramural activities which include:

Manuscript Awareness Campaign

Awareness campaign is conducted periodically, centred on different schools, colleges and villages to educate the younger generation and people about the importance of manuscripts as valuable sources of India’s history and culture, and thus to motivate the younger generation to preserve the ancient treasure. The campaign also helps the Centre to elicit information about manuscript resources of a particular area and aids in acquiring and digitizing rare manuscripts.

International Spiritual Camps

The Centre hosts spiritual camps to students of different International Universities in association with Mata Amritanandamayi Math. The students are rendered opportunity to live in the ashram environment and follow the ashram routine. They interact with senior monastic disciples of Amma. In the process, they elicit knowledge on different aspects of Indian spirituality and tradition. They are also trained traditionally on Hatha Yoga and Karma yoga.
