Disciple : Amma, it is painful to see the way certain people make use of the Movement for their personal gains. I fear it will spoil our reputation amidst devotees.
SRI AMMA : It is not the fault of the river that somebody's excrement floats on it. This work does not belong to any one person or a group of people. If today you witness these phenomenal miracles and enlightened states of consciousness in the lives of scores of devotees, what must be the power and penance that has gone into it ? Leave along Amma Bhagavan; thousands of devotees, their hard work and prayers have all made the movement into what it is. Hence any one person's self-centeredness or greed cannot hurt it. This phenomenon is divinely destined".
