Mata Amritanandamayi (Amma) will be hosting a two-day event on June 28 and 29, at the Best Western Royal Trade Center, in Marlboro. The event will include a meditation, Devi Bhava ceremony and a chance to experience Amma’s unique motherly embrace.
Amma, who has hugged more than 36 million people worldwide, says, “In today’s world, people experience two types of poverty: the poverty caused by lack of food, clothing and shelter, and the poverty caused by lack of love and compassion. Of these two, the second type needs to be considered first because if we have love and compassion in our hearts, then we will wholeheartedly serve those who suffer from lack of food, clothing and shelter.”
The event is free and guests should plan to arrive at least 90 minutes before the program to receive a free token to have Amma’s embrace. Tokens are limited by time constraints.
