Amma is a remarkable spirit -- truly not of this world. She's hugged somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 million people; in one instance she hugged 75,000 people in a single day. You'll not likely see her taking a break to eat or use the restroom. She just keeps on smiling, hugging and chatting with her helpers. She is energetically limitless as she hands out unconditional love to all who seek her out for a single hug. Her embrace is powerful and gentle, affecting people in different ways -- some cry, some smile -- but most are dazed and dizzy when then attempt to stand up following this beautiful energy exchange. Her helpers provide support as you stumble away from her, trying to process what just happened.
For me, I received a hug with my girlfriend -- a powerful commitment to each other, to love and to mutual respect. Amma's mission -- to awaken as many as possible to love through her powerful hugs -- is a noble one and certainly of divine inspiration.
She runs numerous charities, orphanages and has helped revolutionize women's rights in India. She's given tens of millions to tsunami victims, Katrina victims and many others in need. And her events are free. Money comes from donations, as well as Amma products.
She is a miracle. She is the hugging saint. She is Amma. She is love. Thank you Amma for choosing a life of service that makes humanity more balanced, loving and protected.
