Attack On Amma!
File under: Amma All-Over-The-Planet
Amma has survived an attack by a crazed devotee! Shocking us out of the Mendo fog we've been stuck in since our trip to the Green Triangle, we are glad to report that she is ok:
The assailant was overpowered by the inmates of the Ashram even as the person was just ten feet away from where the “mother’ sat at that time conducting bhajans. He had a knife.Oops! Maybe we should have performed a reverse astral milk management puja, enabling Amma to have at least a little bit of her mind-numbing secretion as a means of protection against crazies like this guy. Sorry, girl. We owe you one.
But Pavithran denied he had intended to harm Anandamayi. He told investigators that he had only wanted to move near the Mother and have her ‘darshan’ and her ‘blessings’ through a ‘hug’
In all honesty, we are glad that Amma is ok. We may kid about her a bit more than her devotees prefer, but we too recognize that she's the real thing, despite all the abhorrent hoopla she encourages around herself.
