Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (Amma), more popularly known as the Hugging Saint and a renowned humanitarian has been visiting Malaysia since 2002. Known across the globe for her fathomless compassion, selflessness and spiritual wisdom, Amma has dedicated her entire life for the benefit of other people. Every day she sits for hours on end, receiving person after person in the loving embrace of a mother, sharing tears of the sorrowful and spreading joy. Through this blessing, countless hearts have been opened to a world of peace, love and service. Inspired by Amma, citizens of Malaysia have been coming together to provide food and showers for the homeless, to plant saplings as part of afforestation drives, and to practice meditation and other spiritual practices. The young, the old; the rich, the poor; people of all faiths, nations and walks of life are taking inspiration and solace from the peace and love awoken in the human heart by Amma.
Here in Malaysia, there are many opportunities to get involved in activities and spiritual practices inspired by Amma. There are regular bhajans (devotional singing) sessions, which also involve spiritual teachings and meditation. Please explore our website to know more.

The Lalita Sahasranama is a sacred text comprising the 1000 names of Sri Lalitadevi in the form of the Divine Mother. It is known to be a powerful remedy for all sorts of problems in our lives, besides providing bliss to the devotee. Amma says "Children, if we can do archana of the thousand names of the Divine Mother daily with devotion, we will grow spiritually. Group chanting and prayer is very powerful. It can bring important changes.” We will be chanting Lalita Sahasranama towards world peace. In addition, we will dedicate the chanting to anyone who is ill or undergoing major suffering. If the person is unable to come to the KLH Amma Center, a photograph of the person can serve as a focus for our chanting. For further information, please call 011 3350 2088.
