The ‘Hugging Saint’ Amma (http://www.amma.org) will hold free programs in Dallas on June 27th and 28th as part of her 2010 North American Tour. People of all faiths are invited to attend any or all of the four programs. Two programs will be held each day to make it easy for all who are interested in receiving her blessing. Amma was born in India and she is known throughout the world for her humanitarian works and spiritual leadership.
“Amma presents the kind of leadership we need for our planet to survive. This is the most heroic person I’ve probably ever met. Because she is sitting there hugging people…. The most heroic thing is caring, and she does that,” said American author Alice Walker, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for The Color Purple.
Word of her selfless actions spread beyond her local community, and in 1987, Western devotees invited her on what would become the first of her many world tours. She now visits cities in North America, Africa, Europe, Australia and Asia on a regular basis offering herself for hours at a time to anyone who wishes to experience the healing power of unconditional love.
When asked, “What happens when you hug people?" Amma replied:
“When Amma embraces people, it is not just physical contact that is taking place. The love Amma feels for all of creation flows toward each person who comes to her. That pure vibration of love purifies people, and this helps them in their inner awakening and spiritual growth.”
Today the Ammaritpuri Ashram located in Amma’s birthplace of Kerala, India, is the headquarters of her worldwide social service organization, Embracing the World (ETW). With the help of donations and thousands of volunteers, ETW has built more than 40,000 houses for the homeless in India; awarded more than 30,000 scholarships to impoverished children; built orphanages in India, Africa and Haiti; and provided medical care, food and supplies to victims of tsunamis, floods, hurricanes and earthquakes throughout the world, including American victims of Hurricane Katrina.
The location of the 2010 Dallas event is:
Hyatt Regency DFW
at the Dallas / Fort Worth Airport
The Program dates and times are:
June 27th, 2010 (Sunday) 10 am and 7:30 pm
