KOCHI : Mata Amrithanandamayi Devi, one of the spiritual ambassadors from Kerala, will visit Sri Lanka and hold discussions with President of Sri Lanka, Mahendra Rajapakshe.


The Sri Lankan President has invited Mata Amrithanandamayi to visit Sri Lanka and hand over the keys of the houses the Mata Amritanandamayi Mutt has built for the tsunami victims in that country.

The function will take place at the Presidential Palace, Temple Tree, Colombo, on Friday evening.

A total of 96 houses have been built in two locations. They are situated in the Western Province in the Sinhalese district of Kalutara, and in the Eastern Province, in the Tamil district of Ampara.

Each house measures 600 square feet and was built at a cost of Rs 4 lakh. After the tsunami, Mata Amrithanandamayi had offered a total of more than Rs 3.5 crore for the tsunami-rehabilitation work in Sri Lanka, said a Press release from the Mutt. That offering, says the release, is now coming to completion with the distribution of the house keys on Friday.

Mata Amrithanandamayi had earlier visited Sri Lanka in 2005, where she gave darshan in tsunami-relief camps and distributed thousands of shirts, dhotis and saris as well as medicine to the disaster victims.
