Mata Amṛtanandamayi Devī better known just as Amma ("Mother"), is a Hindu spiritual leader and guru who is revered as a saint by her followers. Amṛtānandamayī's darshan has been the centerpiece of her life, as she has received people nearly every day since the late 1970s. Given the size of the crowds coming to seek Amṛtānandamayi's blessings, there have been times when she has given darshan for more than 20 continuous hours. Amṛtanandamayi has recorded more than 1,000 bhajans, or devotional songs, in 35 languages. She has also composed dozens of bhajans and set them to traditional ragas.
