I became interested in the MA Center and the "Hugging Saint" Amma when I learned about the organization and Amma from a devotee. The experience I had was phenomenal! Amma hugged all who were in attendance and embraced and listened as each person came forward for their hug (myself included). The hug was magical; an experience to be had. The environment at the MA Center in San Ramon is serene, beautiful, vibrant and a real sanctuary. I enjoyed the scenery while my two year old son was delighted with the free open space. I and my baby were happy to be among people who appreciated and tolerated children in a place of "worship". Accordingly, the food at the MA Center is something of an experience within itself! There were many vegan and vegetarian offerings and the service by the volunteers/devotees could not be matched by any high end restaurant. I recommend attending an event when Amma is in attendance to fully experience the joy of Amma.
