Group Description

For free and intelligent discussion of the Indian guru Ammachi (Amma, Mata Amritanandamayi) and her devotees and affiliated organizations, without taboos or restrictions on the points of view expressed.

There are a number of groups about Ammachi. A great many of them tend to restrict discussion in some way or other. This group offers free discussion, in the spirit that truth and free inquiry go hand in hand.

Spiritual growth and freedom of expression are not mutually exclusive: on the contrary, rigidity stifles growth, and the capacity for free and objective inquiry is a sign of wisdom. Truth and sunshine (i.e., free access to information) are mutual friends. In that spirit, please feel free to say anything you like here, pro, con or sideways, within these guidelines:

    1) No threats or other intimidation of group members -- ever. No character attacks in which a member's personal information is used as as a weapon against them (e.g., "digging up dirt" on someone to discredit them). No attempted "outings" of members who use a pseudonym. This rule is absolute. Intimidation is anathema to free expression.

    2) Don't post material from this group to another Yahoo group, or from any list/group to this group, without permission of the author. Respect privacy and intellectual property rights (along with all the rest of Yahoo Terms of Service and Community Guidelines).

    3) Remain loosely on topic (discussions of other teachers or groups, or psychology or religion generally, are fine and welcome).

    4) No flame wars. Please be civil and respectful to other group members even if you disagree with them strongly. While all "content" is welcome here, uncivil and inflammatory "styles" are not.

    5) Avoid excessive spamming or trolling, in the generally understood sense of these terms.

NOTE -- due to bugs and maintenance issues, messages are temporarily readable only by group members, but anyone can still join.
