Amma’s Embrace: An Experience of Unconditional Love

World-renowned humanitarian and spiritual leader, Mata Amritanandamayi, also known as Amma (Mother), will return to our area for free programs—July 31 through August 2, 2024—at the Best Western Royal Trade Center, in Marlborough, Massachusetts. Attendees can experience Amma’s personal blessing in a hug, enjoy inspirational live music, participate in meditation sessions, listen to spiritual discourses, experience healing arts and savor delicious vegetarian food, all amidst her simple yet profound message that love is our true essence.

Amma has embraced more than 40 million people in traveling all over the world for decades, spreading her boundless love and compassion in the form of an embrace and through her humanitarian efforts. In Amma’s arms, many describe experiencing emotional solace, spiritual guidance, concrete solutions to their problems and a feeling of radiant and unconditional love, and that by cultivating love and compassion within ourselves, a ripple effect can spread healing and harmony throughout the world.

Her global humanitarian network, Embracing the World ( encompasses educational initiatives, disaster relief, housing programs, schools, orphanages, hospitals, medical assistance, environmental conservation efforts, anti-human trafficking programs and more. New England volunteers organize regular food drives, donating to area pantries and delivering excess baked goods from large grocery stores to Boston homeless shelters. To date, volunteers have collected and donated over 1,500 pairs of tube socks to a Rhode Island homeless shelter. Youth volunteers visit a Brookline nursing home, bringing cheer to residents through singing popular sing-a-long tunes karaoke-style.
