Amma: Healing the heart of the World

"She has been called saint, mystic, guru, avatar and master...someone sent to the world in an enlightened state to uplift humanity through unconditional love." -- Chicago Tribune. Written by famous author and teacher Judith Cornell, this biography is a moving document with rare and unusual insights into Amma's early years in India. Amma, as she is affectionately known in India and around the world, is a present day saint and an inspirational example of selfless love and service. With boundless energy and compassion, Amma organizes numerous charitable projects around the world, and she embraces the millions who come to her seeking solace and spiritual understanding. From her humble beginnings in a remote fishing village, she has now been recognized internationally, representing Hinduism at the Parliament of World Religions and speaking at the United Nations. And yet, who was Amma before she became an Enlightened Master, and what was her own path to God? This book carefully looks at those questions- uncovering Amma's past and her own spiritual path. It also recounts many of Amma's spiritual experiences, including her vision of Krishna, her vision of the Divine Mother, and ultimately her union with the Absolute. A beautiful and inspiring introduction to Amma. "It is up to you, dear reader, to decide who and what she is through the intuition of your heart..." -- quote from Swami Amritaswarupananda, one of Amma's senior disciples."Ammachi is the embodiment of pure love. Her presence heals." -- Deepak Chopra
