Mātā Amritānandamayī Devī (born Sudhamani Idamannel; 27 September 1953), better known simply as Amma (“Mother”), is an Indian Hindu spiritual leader, guru and humanitarian, who is revered as a hugging saint by her followers.
Amṛtānandamayī’s form of giving darshana is hugging people.
In the book The Timeless Path, Swami Ramakrishnananda Puri, one of Amṛtānandamayī’s senior disciples, wrote: “The [spiritual] path inculcated by Amma is the same as the one presented in the Vedas and recapitulated in subsequent traditional scriptures such as the Bhagavad Gita.”
Amṛtānandamayī herself says, “karma [action], jñana [knowledge] and bhakti [devotion] are all essential. If the two wings of a bird are devotion and action, knowledge is its tail. Only with the help of all three can the bird soar into the heights.”

Matthew J.L. Ehret is a journalist, lecturer and founder of the Canadian Patriot Review and the Rising Tide Foundation.
His mission statement is profound:
Mankind is at a crossroads defined by two opposing paradigms. Either continue to hold onto the traditions of oligarchism which has defined our struggle for existence based upon a rule of the jungle “each against all” outlook for far too long, or embrace our higher nature as a species of creative reason whose purpose and values are not looked for in “how we feel about ourselves in the present” but rather what we create and leave behind for future generations to build ever more upon.
He is an author with Strategic Culture, The Duran, Fort Russ, LA Review of Books- China Channel, and has also been published on Asia Times, Global Times, Oriental Review, Sott, and Zero Hedge.
He has authored three volumes of the book series Untold History of Canada.
