For over 35 years, Sri Mata Amritanandamayi, or “Amma” as she is affectionately known, has been traveling the world, offering her profound message of love and selfless service to others. Spiritual leader, humanitarian and visionary, Amma’s arms are open to everyone. Most come to meet Amma to experience her embrace, her unique way of spreading comfort to the world. Or, to learn more from one of the pre-eminent spiritual teachers of our time. Amma will offer free public programs July 1 and 2, at the Crystal City Gateway Marriott, in Arlington. Morning programs start at 10 a.m. and evening programs start at 7:30 p.m. on July 1 and 7 p.m. on July 2.
Some are drawn to Amma’s many charitable works. However they come, most end up being moved and inspired by one of the world’s most accessible humanitarian leaders. Amma’s global charities, including hospitals, orphanages, disaster relief, housing for the homeless and much more, have brought many awards, NGO status from the United Nations relief agencies and international recognition.
To meet Amma and receive her blessing, please arrive one hour early to obtain an individual token.
