AMMA Brings Hugs of Peace to DFW

Jun 06, 2013 12:18AM

Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, known as AMMA, which means “mother” in her native language, will hold free events in Dallas on June 22 and 23 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel at Dallas/Ft. Worth Airport. Amma, a spiritual leader, humanitarian and philanthropist who has hugged more than 30 million people worldwide, is renowned for her extraordinary acts of love and self-sacrifice.

Amma's efforts include raising millions of dollars for the Hurricane Katrina relief effort and Asian tsunami victims in 2005. Other projects include an orphanage in Haiti; state-of-the-art hospitals in India, that are free to the poor; universities, schools, free homes for the poor and needy; medical camps; orphanages; and schools.

Amma says, “When you offer a flower to another person, a beautiful fragrant flower, you experience the sweet beauty and fragrance first. And then you share it with the other person. So, it gives you happiness for no particular reason, because you are selflessly serving others. You will be able to forget your self. That is real service, when you are able to forget yourself and offer yourself completely to the other person.”
