Navaratri was extensively celebrated at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amritapuri campus from 14 to 23 October, 2015.   Navaratri is not only significant for spiritual aspirants. It has a message for those who lead a worldly life as well. We can invoke Durga’s help to surmount obstacles in our lives, pray to Lakshmi to bestow peace and prosperity, and contemplate upon Saraswati in order to gain knowledge. These three ingredients are necessary for a full and complete worldly life. In reality, when we pray with devotion and proper attitude, we are invoking Shakti, the creative life of Feminine Divinity that is within each one of us. Feminine Divinity has numerous manifestations of Goddesses, including Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati.Therefore, during this festive period, our main building lobby temple was beautifully decorated with Bhommakkulu and Kali idol, creating an auspicious ambience charged with pure  .   The whole celebration was started with Ganapathihoma on the morning of 14 October. Then each department organized puja, Lalitha Sahasranama Archana chanting, bhajans, etc., on each day during this ten-day festival.

Sampoojya Swamiji Poornamritananda Puri, General Secretary of Mata Amritanandamayi Math, released the latest issue of Samvit, a quarterly student journal of Amritapuri Campus,  presented by Dr. Sankaran, Registrar of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, in presence of Chancellor Amma at Amritavarsham 62 on September 27, 2015. Here’s some highlights from the issue. Samvit this time lights up the different faces of the socio-cultural life in India. “A nation without a cultural heritage is like an orphan who has nothing to feed upon” said Emerson once. If we go upon this idea, then India would be a child born with a silver spoon in its mouth and a huge family to support her.

Amrita Sanjeevani, the student seva association of Amritapuri campus, organized a youth camp titled Sanjeevanam’15, at Attapadi during May 24-26, 2015.  The camp provided a rich experience for all the participants, serving to expand their hearts and minds and leading them to discover a new kind of happiness.  Forty Amrita students participated in the three day camp.  The camp was inaugurated by Sampoojya Swami Turiyamritananda Puri.   Swamiji distributed bags, umbrellas, sarees, towels, woollen clothes and medicinal plants like the anti cancer ‘Lakshmi Tharu’ to the villagers which they received very thankfully. The first of Sanjeevani’s efforts at Attapadi was to renovate one of the old Ashram buildings to make it usable as a tuition center for the village children.  The next step was to create awareness through classes on the health consequences of alcohol and smoking and why we should avoid these evil habits and finally, the very necessary guidance on sanitation and cleanliness for improving healthy living by creating clean surroundings.
