WHAT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GESTURE OF PEACE? TO EMBRACE SOMEONE!
Abiy Ahmed, the Nobel Peace Prize 2019 did it with his Eritrean counterpart, other political and religious leaders do it, and we do it every day with our relatives and friends, without really thinking about its meaning. And, there are personalities whose embrace you can never forget.
One such personality is AMMA (Sri Mata Amritanandamaji Devi), also called “Mother” or the “Hugging Saint”.
In 2013, she received the Chromy Award for the work of her “Embracing the World Foundation”, which feeds in India over one million people, and gives shelter and education to hundred thousands.
At the ceremony, she embraced Anna Chromy and her husband enveloping them in a deeply felt stream of love and peace.
This experience has inspired Anna to two beautiful paintings with their explanations in the “Chromatology” series, “Love” and “Transformation”.
