Big (M)Amma Is Coming
File under: Amma All-Over-The-Planet
In the crowded field of Devi pretenders, one woman stands as if on a mountain next to her competitors. We all know who that is...
Set to arrive in just a few days in Seattle, Washington, adults all over the continental U.S. are wetting themselves in anticipation of getting a hug from their glorious "goddess," who will fill their heads with superstitious nonsense as she fulfills her destiny to be mommy to millions who should have already grown up by now.
A hurricane of occluding ideas about self-realization follows her wherever she goes. Her devotees may get a warm fuzzy or two at the satsang, but they leave even farther from their moment of self-discovery than if they'd just dropped $50 grand at the Bunny Ranch.
We liken the last time we got Amma's hug to that time we got a stripper's "hug" at the Crazy Horse Theater. But that's just us. One may have been a wee bit more superficial than the other, but we sure did appreciate that happy ending.
