Mātā Amṛtānandamayī Devī , commonly known to the world as Amma [“Mother”], is a Hindu spiritual leader who’s widely respected for her humanitarian activities. She is famous for giving hugs to anyone who wants to be embraced. It is estimated that she has hugged tens of millions of people around the world and has aptly earned an honored description – “The Hugging Saint”. The lady has an enormous sense of love for everyone. Indeed this person is an incredible asset to society.
World renowned clairvoyant and author of many metaphysical books, Doreen Virtue has had the privilege of meeting the said Hugging Saint. On that occasion, with her gifted vision, Doreen saw divine Higher Beings such as Krishna, Ganesh and the spirit of Gandhi surrounding Amma! Blessed with such divine beings working with her, it is thus not surprising to find her speech often laden with great wisdom. The following quote is a good example:-
“Harboring hatred toward someone is like swallowing poison and expecting the enemy to die.”
