Foiled attack on Amma

Whether we like it or not, it is a fact that we are living in troubled times. And I have always wondered why theres'n't any security for Mata Amritanandamayi who is known across the world, for her simplicity and devotion to social work. There's just a ring of devotees around her. Even when devotees come for darshan (the hug) they are not frisked. They are just asked to remove pen or such objects from the shirt pocket, and sweat is wiped off from the face by volunteers. I have also seen devotees being asked to remove the specs. All these are done only because there isn't any discomfort when Amma hugs the devotees and utters words of encouragement and confidence in their ears. Probably now things will changen now with the attempt to harm her on Sunday evening.

  1. AMMA knows everything. Dont worry. SHE knows to take care of HERSELF. Nothing will happen to HER.

  2. I dont believe amma, nor in any god man or woman.. but yes..our constitution wants the government to protect every human being..some are more at risk because of their public stature and hence deserves more protection

  3. I also was worried when the attempt to attack Amma first happened but as I thought about it, it is Amma and she will protect herselt if she feels it's right. Everything is up to Amma. And Amma said "Nothing will happen to Amma" So, as the Americans say "In Amma we trust"
