Meet Amma, humanitarian and spiritual teacher.
For over 35 years, Sri Mata Amritanandamayi, or “Amma,” as she is affectionately known, has been traveling the world, offering her profound message of love and selfless service to others. Spiritual leader, humanitarian and visionary, Amma’s arms are open to everyone. Most come to meet Amma to experience her embrace, her unique way of spreading comfort to the world. Or, to learn more from one of the preeminent spiritual teachers of our time. Some are drawn to Amma’s many charitable works. However they come, most end up being moved and inspired by one of the world’s most accessible humanitarian leaders.
Amma’s global charities, including hospitals, orphanages, disaster relief, housing for the homeless and much more, have brought many awards, NGO status from the United Nations relief agencies and international recognition.
This summer will be Amma’s 23rd visit to the Washington D.C. area.
Amma will offer free public programs July 1st and 2nd at the Crystal City Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia. Morning programs start at 10am. Evening programs start at 7:30pm on July 1st and 7pm on July 2nd. On July 2nd, the evening program is a special prayer for world peace called Devi Bhava.
To meet Amma and receive her blessing, please arrive one hour early to obtain an individual token. For further information and details, please visit www.ammadc.org
