Amma embraces Mumbai
Amma is the only name millions of devotees know her by.
She is their mother.
Their hugging mother
And names are not really important.
Her bear hug and love bring ample solace and happiness to their lives.
Amma or Mata Amritanandmayi Devi was in Mumbai on March 2 to see her devotees/children. She blessed her congregation at Shivaji Park in Dadar in north central Mumbai.
She was also in Mumbai to spread the religion of humanity through her pravachans and bhajjans.
