What does Amar Jyoti mean?

Amar Jyoti in the Hindi language means “Eternal Light” or “Infinite Light”. This name was chosen to reflect the mission of bringing light to blind children in India by educating them and providing them with a loving home. The word “Light” also has a Christian connotation; Jesus Christ said “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12) and it is his example of charity that inspires our partners in India to devote their lives to serving the poor.
