Amma: The Hugging Saint
Living from moment to moment in a constant state of supreme happiness, Amma warmly embraces thousands of people day after day, wiping their tears, giving them her divine guidance and offering solace to all who come to her. Amma recommends the path of selfless-service through the example of her own life.
Amma says, "The beauty and charm of selfless love and service should not die away from the face of the earth. The world should know that a life of dedication is possible, that a life inspired by love and service to humanity is possible.
"A continuous stream of love flows from me to all of creation. This is my inborn nature. The duty of a doctor is to treat patients. In the same way, my duty is to console those who are suffering.”
"Pure Love is simply emptying the mind of all fears, tearing off the masks & revealing the Self as It really is.Love is the face of God."
"The master, like a sculptor, chips away the stone to reveal the divine Self buried within."
