Its a great privilege to be able to travel and be with my Guru, Amma the hugging saint. She has  hugged more than 34 million people. Amma or Mata Amritanandamayi is known for her selfless love and compassion toward all beings. Her entire life has been dedicated to alleviating the pain of the poor, and those suffering physically and emotionally.

Amma says her religion is LOVE

 

Most of Ammas programs are free to the public. Every summer we get to host her program in New York as part of the tour. For days 1000’s of volunteers work tirelessly to make this a reality. As a business owner, I’m amazed to see all these volunteers who wants to work for free and sometimes even fight to get certain positions. I have a tough time  getting my son to work for me.

 

We have been hosting Amma at the Javits Center for the past few years and before that at the Manhattan Center. Being part of this wonderful crowd means you get to be a part of a variety of projects if you are so inclined. Recently we were invited to the UN for UNAI (United Nations Academic Impact Conference) where Amrita University presented research work they have undertaken in collaboration with renowned universities such as Cambridge, EPFL, Monash, the National University of Singapore, Oxford, Stanford and Twente.

Dean of Research, Nano Technology at the Amrita University, Shantikumar Nair, said, “Skills and technologies readily translatable to society as well as sustainable development have long been one of the guiding forces behind Amrita’s research and research-deployment efforts.”

Her programs run through out the night as she hugs every single person who comes to her.  Doug E Fresh comes in around 3.00am every year to the NY tour and he entertains and helps all of us stay awake with his beat boxing.
