AMMA in M'sia 2008

Reputed as a tireless humanitarian, Mata Amritanandamayi Devi or better known as Amma or "the hugging saint", will mark her presence in Malaysia early next week. She who has been teaching spiritual aspirants all over the world, from humble beginnings, undertook a journey to attain "universal motherhood". Eight years ago, in August 2000, she addressed the Millennium World Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual Leaders at the UN General Assembly, New York. And in 2002, She was presented with the Gandhi-King Award for Non-violence, given in recognition of Her lifelong work in furthering the principles of non-violence.

For the past 35 years, Amma has dedicated her life to the uplifting of suffering humanity through the simplest of gestures – an embrace. She blesses every single one who comes to her by hugging them, letting a river of unconditional love and Luminous rays of grace to flow from her to many souls, accepting anyone and everyone, and cleansing all their impurities. In this intimate manner, Amma had blessed and consoled more than 25 million people throughout the world.

When asked Amma how was it possible for her to embrace each and every one in the same loving way, even if they were diseased or unpleasant, Amma replied, “ When a bee hovers over a garden of varied flowers, what it beholds is not the difference between the flowers but the honey within them. Similarly Amma sees the same Supreme Self in each and every one.“ As long as there is enough strength in these hands to reach out to those who come to her, to place her hand on a crying person’s shoulder, Amma will continue to give darshan; to lovingly caress people, to console and wipe tears until the end of this mortal frame – this is Amma’s wish.

You may seek her blessings when she is in Malaysia from tomorrow, 31st march 7.00 pm to 1st April 2008, 7.00 pm at Mines exibition & Convention Centre, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

"Everyone in the world should be able to sleep without fear, at least for one night. Everyone should be able to eat to his fill, at least for one day. There should be at least one day when hospitals see no one admitted due to violence. By doing selfless service for at least one day, everyone should help the poor and needy. It is Amma's prayer that at least this small dream be realised." -Mata Amritanandamayi Devi
