Lovingly known by millions around the world as Amma (Mother), the Hugging Saint, the Mother of Compassion, and the Mother of Immortal Bliss, the divinely beautiful Indian holy woman Ammachi has spent her adult life fulfilling her mission to share her message of love and compassion throughout the world by distributing hugs and special blessings. In 1990, psychiatrist and Amma devotee Dr. Janine Canan met Amma and, with Amma's blessing, began collecting quotations from Amma's public talks, personal dialogues, and songs. Here, Dr. Canan has translated Amma's beautiful and timeless words so that they are preserved and available for all. Included are themes such as “Love, the Cure,” “Surrendering the Ego,” and “Entering the Stream of Grace.” In all, MESSAGES FROM AMMA delivers the powerfully inspiring teachings of a modern-day saint—a woman whose very life is the incarnation of love.
