Chancellor Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (Amma) in her most recent message about the COVID-19 pandemic reminds everyone that we cannot think of the world as comprising just isolated islands. We have to understand and appreciate the unity of all nations and act as one. "Amma sees the world as a flower," Amma says. "Each country is a petal of the flower. If even one petal is attacked by a worm, it will soon affect the entire flower. We are seeing such a situation now. It will take sincere effort and the positive attitude of the people from every part of the world to ensure that this world-flower remains healthy and beautiful. This is the time when the entire world should come together, as children of one mother, forgetting all differences."
