Where: Memorial Auditorium, Stanford University. Map

What: Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, in conversation with the founder and director, the Center for Compassion & Altruism Research & Education (CCARE) at Stanford University, Dr. James Doty.

In the one-hour dialogue, Dr. Doty will ask Amma about her life experiences and perspective on compassion, followed by questions from the audience. Amma has dedicated her life to alleviating the pain of the poor, and those suffering physically and emotionally. Throughout her life, Amma has embraced and comforted more than 34 million people. She inspires, uplifts, and transforms through her physical embrace, her spiritual wisdom and through her global charities, known as Embracing the World. While Amma is widely regarded as one of India’s foremost spiritual leaders, Amma says that her religion is love. She has never asked anyone to change their religion but only to contemplate the essential principles of their own faith and to try to live accordingly.
