Spiritual and Humanitarian Leader Amma Returns to Boston in July




World-renowned humanitarian and spiritual leader Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, known as Amma, returns to the Boston area on July 5 and 6, offering free programs at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. on both days and a prayer ceremony for world peace. The event will take place at the Best Western Royal Trade Center, in Marlborough, and everyone is invited to receive a personal blessing and hug from Amma.

“Amma has hugged over 34 million people worldwide, and many who’ve received her embrace express feeling unconditional love and total acceptance for the first time,” says Vino Gupta, publicity coordinator for the event.

The free programs in Marlborough include inspirational music, meditation and spiritual discourse. Numbered tokens for individual blessings are distributed 90 minutes before each program.

Amma has emerged as a leader in disaster relief, having deployed vast resources for the earthquakes in Nepal, Japan, Haiti and Gujarat, and cyclones and hurricanes in the Philippines, India and New Orleans. With official non-governmental organization status granted by the United Nations, Amma oversees a vast network of volunteer humanitarian activities including direct aid to the needy, educational institutions for the underprivileged and social programs serving society and the environment. These are summarized at EmbracingTheWorld.org.
