Paradigm Shifter Ram Das Batchelderh brings us Amma, the “Hugging Saint”. He is one who travels with her on her tours and attends her teaching sessions. How does a tiny woman, who has been through childhood challenges beyond most of our imaginings, travel round the world giving the most radiant hugs to thousands and thousands and thousands for 12 to 24 hours, only to begin again the next day How does she do that? How does she integrate her pain and the karma of devoteees round the world. Let’s talk to Ram Das about life in a womb of enlightenment.
Ram Das himself is a delightful soul whose journey is one to honor as well. He has transformed from the real life of an American male, through a nervous breakthrough and along a long but hearty path of awakening.
Let’s revisit Ram Das on this his second visit to our show. I invited him back to speak mostly of Amma and what it is to be her.
