Sri Amma Bhagavan

Nestled at the majestic foothills of Vellikonda range on the eastern coast of South India, lies the serene and beautiful Oneness University, just 80 km of Chennai. Fondly called the Golden City, the university was established in 1996 as a spiritual organization to create a peaceful learning atmosphere for people to leave behind miseries and suffering and become conscious of their individuality. With inner transformation and awakening being the primary motive of setting up the university, the center has successfully gained the love and support from more than 100 million people. The founders, Sri Amma Bhagavan are the inspiration behind the university who seek to establish the humankind into a state of enlightenment and right human relationship. The devout followers assume Sri Amma and Sri Bhagavan to be god-gifted in the state of oneness with all of life. They are not regarded as two separate human beings, but the masculine and feminine aspects of an avatar; thus, they are jointly referred to as Sri Amma Bhagavan.

Who are they?
Born as Kalki Vijayakumar on March 7, 1949 in Natham on the outskirts of Gudiyatham, Tamil Nadu, Sri Naman Kalki Bhagavan, or Sri Bhagavan, was highly influenced by the aspects of introspection and solitude since childhood. With determination of bringing about a massive change in the world, he established a spiritual school called Jeevashram in the Chitoor district of Andhra Pradesh, along with Sri Amma and some of his disciples. The real Sri Bhagavan was revealed to his disciples and other people after they began experiencing divine mystical incidents. From just a handful of youthful disciples, his message has been passed throughout the world, evident from over 15 million followers.

Sri Bhagavan's wife, Sri Padmavati Amma was born on August 15, 1954 in the Sangam village, Nellore district, Andhra Pradesh. She made her presence felt in the hearts of spiritual followers through her innocence, wisdom, and graciousness. Believed to be the divine mother, she has earned high respect and admiration due to the tremendous miracles occurring in her presence. Along with husband Sri Bhagavan, Sri Amma has attracted many spiritual seekers, in search of human consciousness, divine grace, and inner transformation.
