They call her "The Hugging Saint"


India's most famous woman guru, Mata Amritanandamayi, (Amma, for short) whose name means "mother of absolute bliss", is renowned for many things, namely, she hugs people as a blessing and therapy.

Her followers call the act of hugging darshan, or seeing, the word used by Hindus to describe an audience with a deity.

LET ME ASK YA THIS...

Do people need to hug each other more?
