They spoke about Amma’s ashram initiatives under UN Trillion Tree Campaign and said, this project is a great opportunity to implement and practice Amma’s words in one’s life.

Amma says, “Alignment with nature is the lasting and closest bond for the human body and life. Without the elemental forces of earth, fire, water, air and space, humankind and other creatures will cease to exist. Our essential consciousness is the totality of all these forces. As long as we do not acknowledge this eternal unity between humankind and these natural forces, peace, happiness, and harmony will remain a dream.”

With AYUDH’s inspiring efforts, as the Global Seed Campaign gains momentum, the hope for a future with increased biodiversity and ecological balance becomes stronger.
