M.A.Center, Atlanta

Welcome to M.A. Center Atlanta

MA Center Atlanta (December 3, 2016) is home to the South East US branch of the Mata Amritanandmayi Math (MAM) –a spiritual and humanitarian organization with special consultancy status to the UN –and its regional Embracing the World (ETW) humanitarian network.

Inspired by its founder, Amma, who is internationally renowned for embracing millions of people around the globe, offering emotional solace, spiritual guidance and practical solutions to anyone in need, MA Center Atlanta operates not only to conceive and implement local Embracing the World humanitarian projects, but also serves as a hermitage grounded in spiritual principles and activities that, like its founder, has attracted members from literally every major religion, ethnicity, tradition and culture.


Embracing the World is a global network of regional humanitarian organizations inspired by the India-based humanitarian initiatives of the Mata Amritanandamayi Math. Embracing the World exists to help alleviate the burden of the world’s poor through helping to meet each of their five basic needs — food, shelter, healthcare, education, and livelihood — wherever and whenever possible.

Our Volunteers:

A unique feature of Embracing the World's administrative structure is that all top-level administrators at both the national and international levels are volunteers. There are also a huge number of volunteers active at every level of the organization - all regional efforts here at MA Center Atlanta are carried out by volunteers. This combined with an ethic of personal renunciation demonstrated by Amma and filtered down to every level of the organization ensures that the funds raised directly reach the beneficiaries of our projects, instead of being dissipated in administrative overhead.
