Conversation on Compassion with Amma

Dr. James Doty interviews Mata Amritanandamayi who is better known as Amma (or Mother). In this one and a half hour dialogue, Dr. Doty will ask Amma about her life experiences and perspective on compassion.

Amma has dedicated her life to alleviating the pain of the poor, and those suffering physically and emotionally. Throughout her life, Amma has embraced and comforted more than 34 million people. She inspires, uplifts, and transforms through her physical embrace, her spiritual wisdom and through her global charities, known as Embracing the World. While Amma is widely regarded as one of India's foremost spiritual leaders, Amma says that her religion is love. She has never asked anyone to change their religion but only to contemplate the essential principles of their own faith and to try to live accordingly.
