"Amar" means without death and "jyothi" means light. Amar Jyothi translates as perennial light. This CC aspires to be a source of light and hope in the world that never fades.
Amar Jyothi Centre is well known as it is the site of the Sadananda Ashram (Sada+ananda means always happy). We developed our own Ayurvedic medicinal system, the oldest system in India. All of our members reside in the ashram, which is a center of universal brotherhood. We work closely with the nearby agricultural university in Sadanandapuram to heal the environment. Members of our CC strive for a better world by promoting understanding among religions to protect the earth. We work toward this goal by conducting classes about religions and visiting centers of learning.
In 2012, members of the Amar Jyothi Centre participated in World Interfaith Harmony Week, the Indian National Assembly at Santiniketan, and the procession for International Day of Peace.
