The Hugging Saint

After this experience, the Universal Motherhood that was awakened within Her made Her spontaneously embrace everyone who came to Her, experiencing each one as Her very own child. Hundreds of people were coming each day to spend a few moments in Her arms. Amma would listen to their sorrows and console them. She also began teaching them about the true purpose of life. Meanwhile, the village youths intensified their harassment to the point of trying to kill Her. Sudhamani’s parents were devastated by the events rocking their family life. But seeing their daughter’s courage and steadfastness, Her compassion and equipoise in the face of all adversity, they began to understand that Her life had a very special purpose.
