Sreeni Pattathanam authored a book, Matha Amritanandamayi: Divya Kathakalum Yatharthyavum (Matha Amritanandamayi: Sacred Stories and Realities), which became controversial for the alleged derogatory remarks by the author about Matha Amritanandamayi. The book contains critical comments about Mata Amritanandamayi, Mata's personal life, and sexual behaviour. The book also has references to court records, newspaper reports and quotations from some literary figures, and attempts to refute the Matha’s claims to miracles and contends that there have been many suspicious deaths in and around her ashram, which he says need police investigation.
