Thinking Allowed: Amma: Healing the Heart of the World (Judith Cornell) (2001)
Are saints just part of history or can we find healing power in saints today? Judith Cornell knew the Hindu saint, Amma, as the “hugging saint” before traveling to India to meet her, to see how she lives and what she does for people, to research her background and to interview people that she has affected.
Amma isn't just a prolific hugger; she is a healer. Cornell tells host Jeffrey Mishlove about the miracle Amma performed, the compassion she feels, and the sacrifices she makes. Amma believes her duty is to console, to help us awaken to the real self, and to experience unconditional love.
