True bliss is on tour.
Get a hug from spiritual leader Amma – one of more than 26 million she’s given throughout her adult life – and, according to her followers, it has the power to change your life.
Amma’s reach is unquestionable. Known as South India’s “hugging saint,” she has raised millions, having pledged $1 million to the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund and another $46 million to victims of the 2004 tsunami. The hugs are free, and all in a day’s work.
“It’s an expression of my love for people,” says Amma through her Swami interpreter at one of her tour appearances in a Toronto hotel.
