Mata Amritanandamayi, one of India’s beloved spiritual leaders and internationally inspiring humanitarian, will be coming to the MA Center Chicago, in Elburn, this summer. Affectionately known throughout the world as Amma (mother) for her selfless love and compassion toward all beings, she will be offering three days of free public programs. Dates will be announced soon.

All are invited to any of Amma’s free programs. Individuals may experience Amma’s personal blessing (a hug), enjoy inspirational live music, meditation, spiritual discourse, healing arts and delicious vegetarian food. Guests are advised to arrive early, as the line to see Amma can be lengthy.

Amma’s unconditional love and compassion, offered through her embrace, powerfully impacts those that connect with her. She has hugged more than 40 million people. “Where there is true love, anything is effortless,” she says.

Amma’s global charities, Embracing the World, include educational programs, disaster relief, housing, schools, orphanages, hospitals, medical assistance, environmental initiatives, sex-trafficking initiatives and more.

Location: 41W501 Keslinger Rd., Elburn. For more information, call 630-387-5077, email [email protected] or visit
