This site exists to publicize the environmental initiative known as GreenFriends. GreenFriends seek to promote the indissoluble link between humanity and Nature (which is also our own nature). As Amma’s ashram puts it:-

it is our dharma to take care of Nature because of the simple reason that she is in fact our true mother. GreenFriends feel this understanding to be essential in re-establishing the lost harmony between man and Nature, as well as between fellow human beings. For only when we realize that Mother Nature is our real mother will we treat all the plants, animals and other human beings lovingly as our brothers and sisters.
