FotoFriday: Amma

Amma, known as the Hugging Saint, was in the DC area today. She is the Mother Teresa of hugging.

Their boundless generosity. The simplicity of their gestures that mean more than words can express.

Perfect for FotoFriday.



Look at her face.

She leans in and nuzzles people with her cheek as she pulls them into her. Adults can literally go limp in her arms, like young children.

Her hugs are called Darshan, or blessings. This looks like the best kind blessing to me.
