Amma the hugging Saint

I have never met her but the pictures at Detroit news online brought tears in me. Detroit news online called it Embrace: A mother's gift.

Detroit news online reports:"We are all born to experience true love," Amma said through her interpreter and senior disciple, Swami Amritas Pananda. "It is what we are missing in the world today." Love today, she said, "Is like two beggars, only taking. It should flow both ways."Although her embraces were delivered in front of a crowd, the moment with Amritanandamayi was intensely personal for many. Some cried and laughed simultaneously. One man quaked with tremors until Amritanandamayi clasped his head tightly to her chest and soothed him.A visitor said "There is a suspension of time and space when she hugs you."
All our relationships have become business oriented. Perhaps she is reminding us the importance of being cared and loved.
Detroit news online more pictures and a detail report.
