Circle of Love

Prisoners' Welfare Project (USA)

In America, M.A. Center runs a programme called “Circle of Love Inside,” wherein volunteers write letters of hope and solace to people serving prison sentences. Prison visits by volunteers are also arranged. Currently, the programme is active in 15 states, with people participating from around the world. Prisoners involved in the programme, receive Amma’s books, and the M.A. Center is also donating books to prison libraries and other welfare institutions.

Upon request, prisoners are taught Amma’s simple “Ma-Om” mediation technique via mail. Furthermore, the Ashram has also begun teaching Amma’s IAM-Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique ® to juveniles at the Santa Fe Juvenile Detention Home in New Mexico, and there are plans to begin teaching the technique in prisons and adult correctional institutions in 2007.
