Rev. Dr. Joan Brown Campbell, Director, Chautauqua Institution Chautauqua, New York

Amma, your embrace has become a worldwide treasure sought by princes and peasants, women and men, babies and frail elderly. Your embrace is not just to comfort the suffering, but is a gift of strength and spiritual energy to all who work to embrace the world, the world of work, the world of government, and the world of family.
