Compassion PARIS ADDRESS
The only Way to Peace An Address by Her Holiness Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi
Inspired by the depiction of Amma in Jan Kounen’s 2005 documentary ”Darshan”: The Embrace, the French film association Cinéma Vérité Presented Amma with its 2007 Prix Cinéma Vérité for her contributions in fostering world peace and harmony. The award was presented to Amma in an art theatre in Place De la Bastille, Paris, by Academy Award-nominated actress Sharon Stone. Compassion: The Only Way to peace is Amma’s response to Ciéma Vérité’s request for Amma to deliver an address on the increasing occurrences of war, violence and natural disasters seen in the world today. In the address, Amma presents a realistic and constructive analysis of the current global situation, pointing to specific areas of disharmony and explaining how only a compassionate outlook can bring about their rectification.
