Amma Adi Sakthi, Swami Shanmuga
Amma Adi Sakthi and Swami Shanmuga are pristine embodiments of the Divine Mother Gurumata Sri Maha Pratyangira Devi and are Her Adiyargal (ardent devotees and servants).
Personifying Shiva-Shakti energies, Amma and Swami are under the guidance of and walk in the footsteps of Gurumata and the ascended masters. For many years now and currently they are in Mangala Tapasya to usher auspiciousness and Satya Loka energies in the world. Being the chosen vessels of the Divine Mother, they serve the Mother by bringing Her healing energies to all.
Balancing spiritual and family life, Amma and Swami are fulfilling their Dharma as realized beings for the collective ascension by helping people come into Ekatvam, or Oneness, with their Higher Self.
Vessels and personification of Pratyangira Devi energies
Even before knowing the energies of Pratyangira Devi, or the name for it, Amma would frequently be in states of absolute bliss as a young girl.

Why I am called Amma
What people see in me is the Divine Mother, and that is why they call me 'Amma'. All the atoms and molecules in my body are filled with that energy, and I become that universe, I become that Brahma and I am that.
In 1997, Amma and Swami received the tremendous blessing of an open-eye Darshan of Sri Maha Pratyangira Devi. It was a powerful and life-altering event. The Divine Mother Herself revealed the mission of their life, guiding them to awaken Her within people, in the same powerful way as She awoke within them.
Amma and Swami are being guided by the Mother with Her vision of bringing Satya Loka energies to human consciousness in the present Kali Yuga.

Temple in every heart
The vision is to build a Temple in every heart, to serve as a beacon of light to the human spirit. It is about bringing you into Oneness, or Ekatvam, with your Higher Self. That is the true Temple for a person where the inner teachings reveal themselves and become the reality.
Their Dharma of heralding Satya Yuga energies in the world will continue long after they will have left their bodies. No doubt, it is not a simple task to be on this path, while raising a family as well as countless souls here and beyond this plane of existence into ascension. People who connect to their inner temple and ascend into Satya Loka energies will receive huge blessings just as they do if they were here in person, physically.
Keeping in mind that Amma and Swami have done extensive Tapasya to become still, the Void, and being the immaculate Medium for this Mother’s energies to be known to the layman. This energy is also present in every living and non-living thing, every atom and particle in this known and unknown universe. It just has yet to be unlocked to its full potential.
Swami and Amma’s mission and vision are to guide the way through shared experiences to unleashing your full potential and to realize the temple within and bringing you into Oneness, or Ekatvam, with your Higher Self. They hope this upliftment propels you to pay it forward, and carry on their mission of clothing the naked and feeding the hungry on all levels beyond the physical.

Guidance from the masters
Besides the direct experiences of their Gurumata Pratyangira Devi, Amma and Swami have been blessed by many ascended masters during their eventful spiritual journey. These masters bless Amma and Swami through astral visits and sometimes even appearing before them physically.

Students of the Heart: Not masters or gurus

Divine Mother is in everyone
Every form I see, I see the Mother. The Mother is everywhere and in everyone. That is why we are all equals.
Amma and Swami do not consider themselves to be Gurus or masters in the traditional sense of the word. Nor do they want disciples or shishyas. This cuts out all the associated human ego, Maya (illusion), hierarchy, and Guru authority. They are forever Students of the Heart. Humble and unassuming despite the great energy they carry within them, they bow to the Divine Mother within each of us.

Life journey: Balancing spiritual and family life
Amma and Swami married in 1995 to form a complete union of the Shiva-Shakti energy and have two children.
Amma, Swami, and their two children are a deeply spiritual family and are a pillar of strength to each other. To Swami, who has completely devoted and surrendered to Mother Pratyangira, Amma is Mother first, not just a life partner.
Leading a regular family life and yet walking the highest spiritual path, they integrate the two. They understand the challenges of walking the spiritual path in the modern world. Amma and Swami relate to real people and real problems and help people integrate spirituality into everyday life.

I first met Amma and Swami in NYC. I was a college student and I can say that a spiritual path was not my priority. Since that first day in their presence I have noticed a transformation – physical, emotional and spiritual. Their presence exudes a profound, yet simple love. Just as the Divine Mother loves. This experience of love has stayed with me. I know that their love is always there to comfort me. And for this there are not enough words of thanks. I encourage people to open their hearts to Amma and Swami’s message of Oneness.
