Has anyone met her? (Mātā Amṛtānandamayī Devī)

Not met her but have been around several people who have -- devotees in the San Francisco Bay Area (Palo Alto). They go to the center nearby in San Ramon whenever she's in town -- 10s of thousands go, wait in line all day for a hug. Heavy-duty Hindhu bhakti (devtotional) practice, which shows up also in some Buddhist corners...

There's a big Amma center nearby here:

Here's the next big event -- Amma scheduled to be there this May 28 - June 6, 2015, in case anyone wants to check it out:

(I've seen more recent pictures of her, where she looks a bit older.)
