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.

Which one was the happier ending??? I got a lolly from Amma!

My happy ending wasn't just a lolly pop and the fantasy I'd just been hugged by God, that's for sure.

You have to love the "mo mo mo mo" that she does in your hair though?

Not nearly as much as that "oh, oh, oh, oh" I was getting from the other goddess.

Amma's not the only one planning a summer tour. It looks like Spoilt Baba also has a desire to make good on his numerous promises to hit the USA, even though most of the devotees who had been begging him to come there since the 1970s are now dead and gone!

Still, this hasn't stopped him from delaying his trip and now appears to be even ready for it, so long as he's formally invited by his own devotees. Can you smell the ego on this guy?
